Mysore to set up textile park near Thandya

Feb '08
Mysore is getting all set to be the next in the line of developed cities. Earlier known for trading handicrafts, sandal wood oil and silk, the city is now all for industrialization.

Already, around 3,000 acres of land was brought forth for industrial purpose and now, the State Government has acquired another 3,000 acres for the same purpose.

Preparations are being made for initiating the acquisition of the required land and a final notification in this regard has also been issue by the Government.

For a long time, Mysore had been recognized as having a bad record, with running industries successfully and to top it up, K R Mills, Ideal Jawa, Jay Bearings and several others went for a subsequent closure. Experts believe that lack of proper infrastructure and persistent mismanagement in the administration were the major reasons behind such wide scale shutdowns.

To do away with the effects of these incidents, the Government has decided to intervene for uplifting the industrial sector of Mysore. The city was the most viable option for investment after Bangalore since the latter is already saturated with umpteen industries.

More than 400 entrepreneurs have expressed their desire to set up units in the industrial area identified for development. Garment manufacturers, in particular, seem to rule the list of applicants. This apart, the Government has also set aside about 250 acres of land for establishing a textile park near Thandya.
