Large and Medium Industries Minister Jagadish Shettar said here on Saturday that industries were facing inconvenience due to overlapping in collection of taxes by local authorities such as gram panchayats, town and city municipalities.
“The state government will soon bring out new industrial policy laying emphasis on tier-II cities. Steps will be taken for decentralisation of industries,” Shettar said.
