Diligence Minister Murugesh Nirani on Thursday said that establishing transnational airfields between Hubballi and Belagavi at Kittur and in Kalaburagi by acquiring around 3,000 acres of land is certain and these will materialise in a matter of three- four years.

However, transnational field, structure of transnational position and other amenities are a must-have, “ If at each bigger diligence have to come to league- 2 and league- 3 metropolises.

The State government in its sweats to produce the needed structure in league- 2 and league- 3 metropolises has formerly taken several enterprise and five metropolises, Davangere, Badami (in Bagalkot quarter), Raichur, Koppal and Chikkamagaluru, have been linked for setting up lower airfields. Work on these airfields will be completed in another 18 months and they will be commissioned, he said.

The Minister said that the government has planned to attract investments worth ₹ 5 lakh crore during the Global Investors Meet (GIM) to be held in Bengaluru from November 2 to 4. And, the major focus will be on attracting further investments to North Karnataka.

Mr. Nirani said that the government has acquired 50,000 acres of land for the establishment of diligence. “ While 20,000 acres have been acquired around Bengaluru, the rest 30,000 acres have been acquired in other sections. The State is number one in the country in attracting foreign direct investment and is also number one in ease of doing business. After COVID- 19, Karnataka has been the first to hold Global Investors Meet in the country, ” he said.

To a query on the detention in approving FMCG Cluster for Hubballi- Dharwad, Mr. Nirani said that it was true that it took time. “ But the verity is that noway before the government has extended similar impulses and immunity for any assiduity in the State. As the impulses are more, naturally it took time to authorize the offer. And, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has approved it, ” he said.

Vice-Chancellor of KLE Technology University and member of the Vision Group on FMCG Cluster for Hubballi- Dharwad Ashok S. Shettar said that the cluster will bring about 20% growth in GDP of the region.
