Focus on agriculture and agro processing

  • State blessed with rich bio-diversity - 10 agro-climatic zones and 9 distinct soil types

  • Most produce marketed without significant value addition – leaves great scope for the agro & food processing industries

  • De-risk agriculture – State has highest acreage of dryland after Rajasthan. Increase investment in irrigation projects, revitalization of small tanks and dry land development based on watersheds and encourage rainwater harvesting

  • Promote contract farming - Many groups like Reliance, Bharti etc interested in retailing are willing to invest in logistics, cold chains etc

  • Expedite work on proposed ‘Food & Agri Technology Parks’ in Malur, Bagalkot, Belgaum, Maddur, Jewargi and Chitradurga

Areas that require intervention

  • Agriculture – Share in state GDP down from 34% in 1993-94 to 20% in 2005-06

  • Infrastructure, planning and governance – Bangalore, in particular, needs immediate attention

  • Human capital – Skilled manpower in short supply; Knowledge industry most affected; Companies forced to impart in-house training to even advance degree holders

  • Poverty – 25% of people still below poverty line

Make Karnataka & Bangalore preferred investment destination for emerging industries

  • Emerging areas that can be focused upon – aviation, nanotechnology, media & entertainment, high-end design, medical & health tourism

  • In biotechnology focus on genomics and contract research – Leverage technically qualified manpower and state of the art institutions like IISc, NCBS and JNCASR for genetic research

  • Strengthen Automobile & Auto-components industry – SEZ for auto components at Shimoga would give a fillip to this sector

BE for 2008-09 less than BE for 2007-08 for several important development heads. In fact, RE for 2007-08 have also shown a downward trend from BE for 2007-08 – New government must take a relook
