Industries dept to dedicate web portal for the benefit of industrialists; export centre in city

Keeping pace with technology, the department of industries is coming out soon with a web portal for the benefit of industrialists.

Participating in an interactive meet with the industrialists in the city on Saturday, organised by Mysore Industries Association (MIA), at the auditorium of The Institution of Engineers here, principal secretary to the department of industries and commerce, M N Vidyashankar said a web portal is being launched shortly, where comprehensive data pertaining to the industrial scenario of the State will be made available. It may be a reality on August 1 or 2, the officer added.

Apart from the regular updates, the users can also keep tab on the proposals before the department and its status report. A time frame will be set for the clearance of every proposal. If not cleared on time, it will be forwarded to the appealing authority, followed by chief secretary and also to the chief minister. 

It will not only help industrialists avail services on time, it will also be a warning bell for the officers to maintain accuracy and transparency. 

In addition to  this, it has been planned to launch an experiment in Electronics City Industrial Area in Bangalore. The industrialists will be equipped with the facilities to maintain basic amenities- from water supply to power among others. The area will be declared as notified area. 

On the proposals signed at the Global Investors Meet recently in Bangalore, the officer said the estimates were calculated at Rs 7.51 lakh crore against Rs 3.89 lakh crore in the investors meet of 2011. In a continued process, the officers are following up the proposals as 80 per cent of the job is regarding conversion of lands. The situation is such that in most of the cases, the industrialists are asking the department to slow down.

Pending projects

In his reply to the petitions that were put forth by the general secretary of the MIA H Suresh Kumar Jain, the officer promised to clear the pending Industrial Export Centre project for the city at the earliest. The centre was announced in the budget of 2010, with State Government earmarking Rs one crore. 

The officer said that it would be better to hold interaction on a regular basis at least on third Saturday once in two months. He also promised to apprise the industrialists gathered in the auditorium to apprise them of the status of 14 issues.

 Prior to the visit of Vidyashankar, the city industrialists had mailed the officer about 14 issues that still remain to be addressed. 

Earlier Suresh Kumar also reminded the officer that they have been running from pillar to post with the same set of demands for the past 14 years. 

Chairman of Mysore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) S Sudhakar Shetty exhorted the officer of the air connectivity that is riddled with hurdles after the cancellation of regular flights. He also brought to the notice of the officer of doubling of railway line, also in abeyance between Ramanagar and Maddur.

Chairman of MIA P Vishwanath, vice- president of Karnataka Small Scale Industries Association, B P Shashidhar and joint director of industries M Shivashankar were present.
