The state of Karnataka yesterday in its cabinet meeting cleared the IT and electronic hardware policies 2011.
The government is focusing on developing FOUR electronic hardware clusters in Bangalore-Tumkur, Shimoga-Hassan, Hubli-Dharwad and Mysore-Nanjangud, besides giving fillip to IT industries and innovative parks in tier-II and III cities.
No doubt Belgaum falls in tier-II and III cities in the state but no specific mention about parks has been mentioned. Even under the new semi conductor policy subsidy is awarded units opened in other than Hubli, Mysore and Bangalore.
Again Hubli-Dharwad have got an electronic park, couldn’t the park be established in Belgaum.
We have the states Technology university (VTU) head quartered in Belgaum, but Belgaum does not have technology based industries.
The question here have been overlooked again and if yes/no who is responsible for this?
