Mysuru’s industrial scene set to change - Star of Mysore
Mysuru’s Industrial Scene Set To Change
  • ITC to establish pure nicotine production plant
  • Aditya Birla Group to set up paint factory
  • Rich’s Private Ltd. to launch ready-to-eat food factory
All manufacturing units are coming up at Immavu in Nanjangud taluk

Mysore/Mysuru: At a time when many industries and companies in Mysuru are mulling closure or diversification, thanks to COVID contagion, lockdown and slow economic growth, three mega industries are set to open in Mysuru region giving hopes to hundreds of educated, skilled but unemployed youth.
The three industries that are coming up in Mysuru are ITC that is establishing a manufacturing unit of nicotine and nicotine bitartrate dihydrate, Aditya Birla Group that is setting up a paint factory and Rich’s Private Limited that is setting up a ready-to-eat food processing plant. The total investment that is being brought by these firms run up to Rs. 2,975 crore.
The industries are coming up at Immavu village in Nanjangud taluk. Immavu lies to the south of Mysuru and north-east of Nanjangud at a distance of about 16 kms and 5 kms respectively.
Recently when State Chief Secretary P. Ravikumar visited Mysuru, he regretted that despite the best facilities like land and water availability and connectivity, industries are not coming to Mysuru region and asked the officials to give a push for mega industries.
With the establishment of new mega industries, Mysuru’s industrial scenario is set to change and this may prompt other industry majors to establish their manufacturing units here.

Nicotine plant

The Department of Industries has approved the proposal of ITC Indivision Limited to establish a manufacturing unit of nicotine and nicotine bitartrate dihydrate within its campus at Immavu. The project proposal was approved through a circular dated Nov. 7 last year issued by Karnataka Commerce and Industries Department. ITC is investing Rs. 265 crore in the project that will extend up to 70 acres.
The construction work of the project is already on and the works are in final stages. After the construction is over, machines will be set up and the nicotine unit is set to be operational by May end or by June 2021, providing jobs for over 200 youths, he said.

“ITC is establishing its first pure nicotine production plant in India in Mysuru region. Indivision Limited is a wholly-owned subsidiary of ITC Limited and is Special Purpose Vehicle for manufacturers of nicotine and its derivatives,” he said. As per the project proposal submitted by ITC, the modern facility would position India as one of the leading manufacturers of purest nicotine in the world, he added.

Paint factory

The Aditya Birla Group is establishing a paint factory with an investment of Rs. 2,500 crore in an 80-acre plot at Immavu. The company has sought permission from the State Commerce and Industries Department and will submit their project report for approval.
Recently, representatives from Aditya Birla Group and a team of officials led by Joint Director of District Industries Department D.K. Lingaraju visited the land and took stock of land availability, connectivity and other factors.

Ready-to-eat food

Rich’s Private Limited, a food processing company, is establishing a mega ready-to-eat food plant at Immavu on the lines of Nestle India. The total investment is Rs. 200 crore and the company is establishing a state-of-the-art ready-to-eat food plant.

Sources said that the Industries Department is willing to hand over land to the company and the process is on. Even the company officials have sent a proposal to this effect. Works on the plant will begin soon and it will provide employment to local youth.

Along with many direct jobs in the manufacturing sector in Mysuru, many indirect jobs will also be created. Mysuru has a reputation of being a tourist centre and an education hub and there is a vast improvement in connectivity — road, rail and air. Also for transportation, the Container Corporation of India is setting up its Multi-Modal Logistics Park or Inland Container Yard at Kadakola in Nanjangud. All these are favourable for industrial growth, sources added.

Continuing, he said that, by 2030, the cyber products market will reach 35 billion dollars which is currently a 4 billion dollar market and there is a huge shortage of cyber talents today which gives the relevance of a Cyber Security CoE.
Yaduveer Wadiyar of Mysuru royal family said that Mysuru has been spearheading changes for India with bringing-up great institutions of everlasting value and the Cyber Security CoE will bring everlasting value to the country.
Amit Kumar, then Chairman, CII Mysuru, expressed his happiness to be associated with like-minded institutions to promote Mysuru as a pioneer in Cyber Security field and added that Mysuru has all the potential to become as a Cyber Security Hub of the country.

Addressing the Conference, Pavan Ranga, then Vice-Chairman of CII Mysuru, said that currently most of the business activities are held online and all such activities generated data, which is available online and vulnerable to cyber attacks.
Defence sector is going to be more of cyber war than a physical one. Cyber security is a human issue and we need to look at the way we look at it and handle it wisely, Ranga said.
Praveen Rao Pejaver of CII Mysuru, stated that the new norm during and after the pandemic is and will be even more dependent on a secure and reliable cyberspace.

KIADB officials to prepare an action plan for providing basic infrastructure to the proposed facility

The long-delayed Film City project that was finally retained in Mysuru has gained traction as the Commissioner of Information and Public Relations, P.S. Harsha, on Saturday asked the KIADB officials to prepare an action plan for providing basic infrastructure to the proposed facility such as water supply for taking up necessary works.
Mr. Harsha, who inspected the land identified for establishing the project at Himmavu near here on Saturday, said the land was most suited for the purpose.

Nanjangud Tahsildar Mohana Kumari, who was present, told the Commissioner that the 110-acre government land identified for the project has to be formally transferred to the Department of Information and Public Relations from the KIADB. She apprised the Commissioner about the land records and other matters pertaining to the project.
The Commissioner told the tahsildar to attend the meeting convened by Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa in Bengaluru on April 7 in connection with the project and give details about the process initiated for transferring the land for taking up the works.

Film city can create 5000 direct and indirect jobs
The Film City is a mega project as nearly 5,000 can work at a time once the facility is established. Artistes, technicians, workers and others can work in one facility for film making.

Will give boost to Tourism Industry
The Commissioner said the work has to be taken up taking the support from all departments. The project would also help develop tourism in the region and the facility has to be conceptualised taking all factors, including tourism development, into consideration.

On the construction and maintenance of the proposed facility, Mr .Harsha said a district-level implementation committee has to be constituted and told his department officials here to discuss with the district administration on the members, including the elected representatives, VIPs and officials, to be accommodated in the committee.
The Commissioner’s visit gains significance as Minister for Information and Public Relations C.C. Patil had said recently that the government will soon be starting work on establishing the facility. The announcement had raised a lot of hopes among the stakeholders of the tourism industry as the project would develop tourism in and around Mysuru. There are over 250 tourist sites around Mysuru and retaining the project in Mysuru would largely benefit the film industry as well as people banking on the tourism industry, the stakeholders felt.

In fact, when there was hectic lobbying for shifting the project to Ramanagaram and Bengaluru, the stakeholders had launched a signature campaign and also tried to bring pressure through the local elected representatives for retaining the project in Mysuru, keeping in view the benefits the tourism industry would gain from the project.

IBM opens Client Innovation Centre in Mysuru
Karnataka expects 5,000 tech firms to respond to 'Beyond Bengaluru’ call

IBM opened a Client Innovation Centre (CIC) in Mysuru on November 8 in response to the ‘Spoke-Shore Strategy’ floated by Karnataka Digital Economy Mission (KDEM), a special entity to take businesses ‘Beyond Bengaluru’.
As an entrepreneurial startup within IBM Consulting, the CIC would specialise in design, software engineering and analytics while supporting clients in their business transformation journey.

B.V. Naidu, Chairman, KDEM, said, “The launch of the Client Innovation Centre in Mysuru resonates with KDEM’s Spoke-Shore initiative of attracting at least 100 Global Capability Centres (GCCs) by 2025. Seeing the pace at which centres like Mysuru are transforming digitally, we believe that such concerted efforts, such as IBM’s CIC, are key to amplifying Karnataka’s IT ecosystem, especially in centres beyond Bengaluru.”

Minister for Higher Education, IT & BT, Science & Technology, Skill Development, Entrepreneurship & Livelihood Ashwath Narayan said, “It is encouraging to see that the industry is recognising places such as Mysuru, thereby echoing our vision of Beyond Bengaluru. We are confident that this partnership will propel Karnataka to become a frontrunner for digital services and technologies world over’’


“The IBM CIC would play a key role in the digital transformation of the IT ecosystem throughout Mysuru and create new employment opportunities to foster the next wave of technology innovation,” said Amit Sharma, Managing Partner, Worldwide Global Delivery, IBM.

“IBM CIC is looking to hire over 10,000 staff this quarter globally. This builds on double-digit hiring growth in its Global Delivery Centres this year. This continued investment in talent will expand the company's skill sets in areas such as AI, intelligent workflows, application modernisation and management, and hybrid cloud,” Mr Sharma added.

Given that 30% of India’s GDP is driven by the digital economy, KDEM’s Spoke-Shore would converge on setting aspirational goals for GCCs and creating employment opportunities for 10,00,000 (direct and indirect) candidates by 2026, according to Mr Naidu.

The Karnataka Government’s ‘Beyond Bengaluru’ initiative is expected to attract and host 5,000 IT companies and startups by 2026 in the Mysuru, Hubbali and Mangaluru clusters.

Schneider Electric reaffirms commitment to India’s smart metering initiative with the Mysuru facility
With its facility at Mysuru, it has a capacity to manufacture 17 mn meters per annum



Schneider Electric aims to support the government of India’s Smart Meter National Programme (SMNP) through its manufacturing facility in Mysuru, Karnataka. With the merger of Schneider Electric and erstwhile L&T EAIC, the facility benefits from the former’s global expertise and technology prowess in the smart metering domain. With a manufacturing capacity of 17 mn meters per annum, the plant has supplied more than 70 mn electricity meters and 3 lakh smart meters in India till date.
Luc Remont, executive VP, international operations, Schneider Electric, said, “With the advent of modernization, the world is poised to become more electric and digital. Globally we play an important role in smart grid technology and we are poised to provide the same in India with local engineering and delivery support. We aim to build our indigenous capabilities in the segment and provide solutions as per the requirement of Indian utilities.”
The government envisions replacing 25 crore conventional meters with smart meters in India by 2025. With an initial target of installing 10 crore meters by December 2023, the government has already installed 19 lakh smart meters across various states under SMNP. Schneider Electric’s plant in Mysuru has an end-to-end ecosystem in place, which can be scaled up to meet the expected surge in demand for smart prepaid meters. The company already has an order of 1.4 mn smart meters.
Anil Chaudhry, MD and CEO, Schneider Electric India, Great India Zone, said, “India is going to become more electric and digital – with more renewables in our energy mix. To make this happen, we need to evolve our energy grids into smarter grids by making them resilient, stable, and at the same time providing the right kind of flexibility.”

DFRL’S READY-TO-EAT MENU FOR GAGANYAAN MISSION



The Defence Food Research Laboratory (DFRL) in Mysuru has prepared a slew of ready-to-eat dishes tailor-made for India’s space programme Gaganyaan.


The DFRL has prepared about 40 to 50 menus comprising both vegetarian and non-vegetarian items and the trials are in the preliminary stages.

The items include potato-stuffed paratha, vegetable biriyani, dal chawal, sambar chawal, rajma chawal, kichdi, preserved chapatis, veg katti roll, chicken biriyani, chicken katti roll, egg katti roll, chikki, instant tea and coffee mix, sooji halwa, garlic and mango pickle, and tomato sauce.

Some of the technologies developed by the DFRL were on display at the two-day exhibition of technologies and products to mark Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav which commenced here on Monday.

A team of 40 scientists are working on the food menu and based on the feedback of the ISRO and astronauts the products will be finalised.

“In space where there is zero gravity condition, the delivery mechanism should be different and poses a challenge and the scientists are also working on this aspect’’, said Mallesha and Madhukar of DFRL. In zero gravity conditions if juice or any liquid spills out it will keep floating and in case it comes into contact with any electrical systems it can cause problems. Hence there is a different mechanism of delivering the food intake developed by the DFRL, the scientists explained.

Once the menu is finalised the DFRL will supply enough food to last the duration of the mission for three astronauts in addition to emergency stock, said Mr. Madhukar.

The DFRL has developed an array of food products and technologies to cater to the strategic operational requirement of the defence forces and to provide logistical support to it in the area of food supplies. Over the years, more than 600 technology transfers have been carried out to about 320 firms.

In addition to DFRL, the Defence Bioengineering and Electro Medical Laboratory (DEBEL), Bengaluru, was also showcasing some of the technologies and products developed by it at the exhibition. Among the slew of products, a life-saving device for the benefit of defence personnel who can suffer High Altitude Pulmonary Oedema (HAPO) when deployed in high altitudes to guard the borders, drew attention.

R.G.Revaiah, the scientist of DEBEL, said when afflicted by HAPO, the soldier has to be sent to lower altitudes but that may not be feasible given the nature and sensitivity of their job and hence on-site treatment has to be given. Inside the HAPO chamber, the pressure is increased and this simulates the conditions and benefits that occur when one is brought to sea level or lower altitudes and the emergency due to HAPO is addressed. DEBEL’s product has been patented, it is easy-to-use and the technology has been transferred to six companies and is being bulk produced for the defence personnel, he added.

DEBEL has also developed Mobile Tele Diagnosis System, Wearable Physical Efficiency Test Monitor, Air Sterilisation System for Biological Emergencies, and Advanced Microclimate Conditioning Suit for Battle Tanks and Submarines.
