Murugesh Nirani in reply to Abhay Patil’s question said Govt is planning to bring 90% of Investments from GIM to Tier-2 Cities like Belagavi
Murugesh Nirani Government of Karnataka Minister for Medium and Large Scale Industries During GIM, Karnataka got investment proposals of ₹9.81 billion, which are expected to generate 6 lakh employment.
The Minister emphasized that no incentives or subsidies were being offered to enterprises moving to Bengaluru and advised businesspeople to establish their ventures in Tier II cities in Karnataka.
In response to a query from BJP candidate for Belagavi South, Abhay Patil, the Minister stated that over 90% of MoUs concern Belagavi, Dharwad, Kalaburagi, Mysuru, and other locations.
Nearly 90% of the investments made during the recently concluded Global Investors’ Meet (GIM) in Bengaluru, according to Minister for Major and Medium Industries Murugesh Nirani, will go to Tier II cities in Karnataka.
Murugesh Nirani’s Reply on Query by MLA Abhay Patil:
Murugesh Nirani stated that Belagavi would receive priority under the one district, one project scheme. According to him, the Delhi-based company A Gold Plus Glass plans to invest 2,500 crores in Hukkeri.
A Russian electric vehicle manufacturer has expressed interest in investing in Karnataka. We have made good incentives and facilities available in an effort to persuade them to invest in Belagavi, Dharwad, or Kalaburagi. To meet with us, the delegation traveled to Belagavi. We have land available, and the investment totals more than 2,000 crores, the Minister stated.
The border town of Belagavi was well renowned for its foundries. We will develop an industrial sector in Belagavi because it is a border region and Maharashtra, which is next door, already has one.
The Minister responded, “It may become a problem as border districts near Bengaluru would request similar concessions,” in response to Speaker Vishveshwara Hegde Kageri’s suggestion to provide specific incentives to industries in border regions.
MLA Abhay Patil’s worry about No Industries in Belagavi:
“It is regrettable that industries are not coming to Belagavi,” Mr. Patil added. Despite the government’s announcement of the “Beyond Bengaluru” project, investments only extend as far as Hubballi. Therefore, we are pleading with the administration to implement “Beyond Hubballi.”
The issue is that there aren’t any industries in Belagavi, thus we have to wonder if it belongs to Karnataka. No major industry has come here in 30 to 35 years. What good is it to travel to Belagavi and give lectures if you can’t provide young people jobs? Resolutions serve no use, the BJP member remarked to Murugesh Nirani
“When you are preparing an industrial policy for Karnataka, give special emphasis for border districts such as Belagavi to attract investments, or else investments will go to Maharashtra since that State is offering more incentives,” Mr. Patil said to Murugesh Nirani, pointing to a 5,000-acre industrial estate in Kolhapur, Maharashtra.
Kagal Industrial Area in Maharashtra is grabbing local investment, Patil grumbled. Because Maharashtra is providing additional incentives and luring firms close to the border, particularly foundries, he claimed that Belagavi requires a separate policy.
MLA Anil Benake’s reply about land availability:
Anil Benake, an MLA for Belagavi Uttar, intervened and demanded that the government take action to seize control of the 700 acres of property designated for an IT park. “On the land which is owned by the defense ministry. A technology park will benefit Belagavi, as many engineering graduates commute to Pune or Bengaluru due to the unavailability of Companies in Belagavi “said Anil Beneke.
