KCCI plans to call elected representatives' meet

DH News Service, Hubballi, Jan 3 2018, 22:15 IST

The Karnatak Chamber of Commerce & Industry (KCCI) has planned to call a meeting of people's representatives of the region, to raise the demands to establish large and medium industries in North Karnataka region, to properly implement Dr Nanjudappa Committee report to remove regional imbalance, and to shift offices of some departments from Bengaluru to Suvarna Vidhan Soudha in Belagavi.

KCCI President V P Linganagoudar told media persons here on Wednesday that Union Chemicals & Fertilisers Minister Ananth Kumar has assured to sanction a Central Institute of Plastic Engineering & Technology (CIPET) for this region, if the State Government identifies place and submits a proposal.

The government has been urged to take up the second phase development of the multi-purpose exhibition centre near the APMC. Steps should also be taken to further develop Tarihal, Gokul Road, Lakamanahalli and Rayapur industrial estates. APMC cess should be reduced, while cotton mills should be revived. The work to set up a maize park on 40 acres of land at Ranebennur should be speeded up. The KCCI would make organised efforts on all these issues, he said.

Police commissioner and HDMC commissioner would be urged to take steps to reduce the traffic congestion in the twin cities. Hubballi-Ankola railway line project implementation, direct flight between Hubballi and New Delhi, daily flight between Hubballi and Mumbai, and speedy settlement for Mahadayi dispute are also the major demands of the KCCI, Mr Linganagoudar added.

Daily flight

Air India Manager Manjunath noted that a proposal would be sent to make Hubballi-Mumbai flight a daily service, as the response for tri-weekly service is very good. Rs 1,575 is the fare if a ticket is booked at least 10 days in
advance, he said.

KCCI Vice-Presidents Mahendra Laddad, Ashok Tolanavar, G K Adappagoudar, Honorary Secretary Vinay Javali, and others were present.
