He said that the Karnataka state government was putting more emphasis on development of industry both in Bangalore as well as outside Bangalore areas.

According to him, the state government offered opportunities for the growth of industry like; good roads, availability of water, electricity and infrastructure even in rural areas.

He also said that the government has contributed 2,500 acres of land through industrial development, while electrical infrastructure of up to 2500 MW has been made available.
