Well before you will read the below post, I have the latest update on Belgaum IT park by KSSIA (Karnataka State Small Industry Association) . This park is yet to take shape , the total area is about 41 Acres next to Belgaum Golf academy at Desur , the plot cost may vary and approximately will go for 2 lakhs per gunta, there are four international companies on whose behalf I had approached the Jt Director and the office in charge , he even gave update on Waghwade IT park of 150 acres with earth station from STPI is yet to take shape.
The KASSIA IT park will only sell plots where as the Waghwade IT park will have some added facilities, such as Banks , Government clearing agencies and international convention centre, unfortunately the IT park at Waghwade is gone into rough weather due to villagers and few politicians had in hand.
Now Hon Minister Mr Katta Subramanya Naidu announces 200 acres of new IT park for Belgaum and 500 acres for Hubli , I don’t know what will materialise of these loose talks when the commitments of earlier announcements have not been met,
The time will tell whether we are going to see more of such announcements or realty taking shape.

BANGALORE: The IT City will soon have another IT park, but with a difference. The 2,000-acre facility housing IT, BT, hardware, nano and aviation industries, will come up not on a single piece of contiguous land but will be more like a chain of industrial areas linked by good roads. It will be set up under the public private partnership (PPP) mode. IT-BT minister Katta Subramanya Naidu told reporters here on Wednesday that such an effort will not only retain industries in Bangalore, but also invite more industries to the city. “We have received several requests for large tracts of land by many industries. This project will fulfil all their needs,’’ Naidu said. According to him, the government plans to drop the process of compulsory land acquisition for this park and explore other options. A smaller IT and small and micro industries park will come up in Bangalore on a 25-acre area. Nearly 300 firms have already submitted requests for land in the park. It will be taken up under the PPP model by the state-run electronic industries corporation Keonics. The state also plans to set up a 500-acre IT park in Hubli and a 200-acre IT park in Belgaum. The minister has already met representatives of the chambers of commerce and industries from Hubli and Belgaum. “IT parks will also come up in other tier-II cities like Shimoga, Gulbarga, Mangalore and Mysore. The state is considering a request by Wipro technologies for a 100-acre land in Mysore for a faculty training university,’’ he said.
