Industrial Corridor near Highways in Belgaum

241 users have liked.

The central government has an aspiring industrial corridor plan & under the Delhi- Chennai industrial corridor, land survey is going on for 4000 acres from Nippani to Kittur on the NH 4 and NH4A.

The said industrial Corridor developed by the Central govt. in alliance with Japan & has to be built in 2008-2011. The main aim of this corridor is the overall industrial development and ease in logistics. The State govt. has to acquire lad and develop it and the central govt. will finance the project.

100 acres at Halga on the NH 4 has been reserved for Agri Food processing. 70 acres already allotted for a Textile park in Waghvade on the Belgaum – Khanapur road. 100 acres in Waghvade & 70 acres in Desur is for IT Park. 500 acres is being sought at Bhutramatti on the NH4 for Automobile component industry. 350 acres in Halbhavi will have a Chemical and Body building SEZ. In Vantmuri a SEZ has been planned in 2000 acres. 2500 acres has been identified for a Private Educational institute in Hattargi.

After reading this, I was amazed at the plans of the government. The plans have been planned in a much-planned manner. However, the question is will this be implemented in the time frame with all those farmer revolts against land acquisition. In fact Belgaum has seen a many of these revolts in the recent past. Sambra airport upgradation, then the Bellary Nala farmers protest against their land being taken and now the very recent Halga protest against the Site of Vidhan Soudha.

Tata’s have almost said good-bye to Bengal after the land row in its Singur plant. If same kind of things happen here also, the industrialists will hesitate to come in and set shop. Industrial development is required but at what & whose cost is the big question in front of me.

Don't know much about these plans, but looks like a healthy mix there - agri processing, textile park, chemical industry, and the usual IT park.

About farmer protest issue - how is the land acquired for these parks? Govt does it (via KIADB), or does it let private companies deal directly with the farmers?

Also, didn't understand the alliance with Japan thing? Whats their involvement - build these parks? Or are some Japaneses companies taking up space in these industrial parks? comment guidelines
