50 districts to be developed as agri export clusters
NEW DELHI: With an eye on doubling farmers’ income by 2022, the Commerce Ministry has identified 50 districts across the country that will be developed as exports clusters for various agriculture produces in consultation with the respective states.“As a part of the draft Agriculture Exports Policy 2018, we have identified 50 unique product-district clusters for export promotion. We are in touch with various state governments, who will help us to set infrastructure in these districts. Not only will it help in increasing farmers’ income by boosting exports, but also help in reducing the post-harvest loss,” a senior official of the Commerce Ministry said.

For instance, Kadapa and Anantapur districts in Andhra Pradesh and Trichy in Tamil Nadu have been identified for banana exports, while Belgaum and Mysuru in Karnataka will be developed for pomegranates. Similarly, Lucknow and Saharanpur districts in Uttar Pradesh and Ratnagiri in Maharashtra will be developed as mango export clusters. Srinagar (J&K) and Kinnaur (Himachal) will be developed as apple clusters and Nagpur as an orange cluster.

27/08/2018 12:38pm KASSIA urges K’taka Govt to create logistics parks at Belgaum, Mangalore, Gulbarga and Hubli

Bengaluru, Aug 27 (KNN) The Karnataka Small Scale Industries Association (KASSIA) has urged the Kartnaka Government to create logistics parks at Belgaum, Mangalore, Gulbarga and Hubli in addition to the mega park at Bangalore.

KASSIA has thanked the Government for taking up the issue of creation of logistics parks on priority with a view to give further spurt to economic activity, growth and development in the State.

In this connection, KASSIA has made some suggestions to the government.

In a release, KASSIA President Basavaraj S Javali said, “We appreciate that in addition to the Multi Model Logistics Park at Dabaspet, Government is keen of setting up more logistics parks at strategic points in different regions of the State. We suggest that as indicated these logistics parks may be created at Belgaum, Mangalore, Gulbarga and Hubli in addition to the mega park at Bangalore.”

Such logistics parks in the important regional centres will help speed up the growth and development linking up with activities in the hinterland and also help the neighbouring districts where industrial activity can be fruitfully diversified, he said.

These logistics parks should develop multi model facilities by providing the necessary infrastructure in terms of ports, airports, road network warehousing and cold storage facilities.

Taking an example, KASSIA President suggested that Belgaum can be developed as a key logistics park by using the Airport infrastructure that is already available.

By spending some more additional resources incrementally, the airport can be developed into an important Air Freight Corridor to benefit the region as basic facilities already exist.

Another strategic benefit of Belgaum is the closeness to the nearby Goa port which is under 150 Kms. distance and can be very usefully leveraged, Javali suggested.

Belgaum is an extremely important centre of industrial activity as well as having considerable exports of horticultural products, vegetables as well as floricultural products. Belgaum had earlier been envisaged as a food park / zone which can be usefully developed.


To help the northern parts of the State, rail infrastructure can be strengthened and developed by laying new lines parallel to national high way between Hubli and Belgaum. One more rail road can also be laid from Karad to Dharawad via Kolhapur and Belgaum, KASSIA said.

It will be very important and necessary to include the Gulbarga regions by developing the necessary infrastructure including logistics to take advantage of the closeness of the district to Hyderabad. The developments in Andhra Pradesh can also be usefully leveraged to district advantage.

KASSIA said it would like to provide all necessary inputs and possible help in order to ensure that logistics parks are created as early as possible in the interest of the State’s economic development. (KNN Bureau)

Bosch Ltd solar power plant inaugurated in Belagavi

Bosch Ltd. inaugurated a solar project at Yaragatti village of Belagavi district on Saturday. The plant will supply power exclusively to Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) in Bengaluru, which is about 460 km away.

Soumitra Bhattacharya, MD of Bosch Ltd., and Hari Marar, MD and CEO of Bangalore International Airport Ltd. (BIAL), inaugurated the plant. Built over 70 acres, the plant can generate 14.4 MW of solar power. This is the second unit dedicated to supplying power to BIAL, after the 2.94-MW installation by Bosch at the car park area near BIAL, functioning since May 2017.

According to Mr. Marar, their strategy was to become self-reliant in renewable energy. “We want to be 100% powered by renewable energy by 2020. Towards that end, this flagship project will help us reduce the carbon footprint significantly and achieve greater sustainability in the aviation sector,” he said.

Mr. Bhattacharya said the shift to renewable energy has been rapid in recent years. With the backing of the government, various organisations have been working toward achieving the capacity addition goals set on solar energy for 2022. “Bosch is proud to be a part of this journey and we believe that our association with BIAL is an integral part of our commitment to sustainability,” he said.
