Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan



The Small Industries Development Organization, ministry of Small

Scale Industries, Government of India, has been preparing MACRO Level
State & District Industrial Potentiality Reports for the past many decades.
The reports served as reference material towards planning for rapid
Industrial development with emphasis towards Small Scale Sector and
assisted in proper planning for the development of the districts.

The Government of Karnataka has now taken a positive step to

conduct potentiality reports at the MICRO level to correct the regional
imbalances with a delimitative objective of implementing the
Nanjundappa Committee report recommendation for development of
backward regions.

The District Industries Centers have prepared a prospective District

wise Industrial Development Plan for development of Industrial activities
for the period 2000-2005. This micro level taluks industrial potentiality
report for each district seeks to serve as a guide for Rural industrialization
for the period 2006-11.

The Department of Commerce & Industry has identified a number

of professional agencies to prepare the potentiality report and is being
coordinated by Tecsok The Director Small Industries Service Institute
Hubli has been assigned the task of preparing the District Industrial
Prospective Plan (DIPP) for all Taluks of Gulbarga & Bidar Districts.

1.1 Objectives of the Study: -

The District Industrial Prospective Plan will -

• Highlight the strength, resources, scope and opportunities in each
taluk of the district to provide the prospective entrepreneur in
identifying the producer/activities and locating his project suitably.
• Serve as a guide for the Department of Industry & Commerce, as
well as other promotional agencies for taking action for the industrial
• Help in monitoring the accelerated development and orderly growth
of industries which will balance development throughout the district.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
• Enable the District Industries Centre to guide the prospective
entrepreneur to set up industries in different locations of the district.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan



To evolve a practical implementation action plan for industrialization
at Taluk level-Gulburga Taluk based on the inferences of the study report.

Essential features of the report:

• Inadequate infrastructure in terms of Land, power, &
• Little Scope of Large & medium industries
• Scope for Agro based, Dairy, food products, consumer chemicals &
Ready-made garments industries.

Prominent Industry:
• Dal mill industry.

Target Group of entrepreneurs.

• For common items like - Women, SHGs. unemployed
Potato chips, Masila Power, educated.
Papad Making etc.

• Agro clinics - Agriculture graduates

• Dal Mill, Oil Mill etc with - Young entrepreneurs

heavy investments economically potential family

• Workshops, repairing shops etc. - Skilled persons from ITI,ATI

& service industry.

• Permit based industries & - Women, SHGs.

BMP Milk Products etc.

• Sophisticated Chemical Industries - Engineers, Experienced

young entrepreneurs.

• Mechanical sophisticated Industries - Engineers ,Experienced

young entrepreneurs.
Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan

• IT/BT Industries persons - Engineers & Experienced

Identification of projects :
1. A consensus has to be arrived between Technical organizations,
promotional institutions and financial institutions on the potential
projects, scale of investment and requisites for Engineering graduates,
Agricultural graduates.
2. A proposed list of Tiny & self-employment industries for
Unemployed graduates, women entrepreneurs, self-help groups,
experienced entrepreneurs etc

Preparation of Project reports :

Tecsok, Cedok, KVIC, & SISI must prepare project profiles of
identified industries for each category of target groups.


 Linkages :
• Establishing effective linkages between SISI, DIC, NABARD,
CEDOK : chairman CEO Zilla Panchayat

 Agenda for a wholistic approach :

• To identify and approve of projects
• To formulate a system for identification of entrepreneurs.
• To prepare a schedule for implementation
• To define the escort services from each organization
• To define the financial and other commitments by each organization
• To devise a suitable reporting & monitoring system
• Coordination & establishing commonality between all development
schemes from all agencies
• Evolve common EDP & Training programme for all schemes for all

 Escort services :
• Industrial development at any level involves the following essential
• Identifying potential projects
• Preparation of project profiles
• Technical assistance to entrepreneurs in setting up the industry.
• Identifying entrepreneurs
• Motivation
Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
• Entrepreneur development
• Skill development training
• Management development practices
• Financial assistance
• Marketing guidance.

The escort services to complete the whole process from

motivation to selection of entrepreneurs, training, preparation of
project reports, technical assistance financial assistance etc has to be
made available to the entrepreneur on a continuous basis and
momentum sustained to ensure success of the development activities.

Identification of Projects :
The potential industries for each Taluk is identified based on past
experience, projected growth and availability of local resources in terms of
HRD, raw material and demand etc.

Identification of entrepreneurs :
Entrepreneurs are identified through motivation programmes and
promotional efforts of NGO’S & SHG’S in the taluks.

Identity of Entrepreneurs :
Majority of entrepreneurs are from low-income group with modest
education and are first generation. Most are Women entrepreneurs.
Educated [graduates] are few in numbers.

Hence the target group as potential entrepreneurs are those with

formal education SSLC, PUC etc with no background of exposure in an
industrial activity. The financial capabilities in terms of mobilization
towards investment ranging from Rs 5000 to Rs. 25000/-

In effect the prospects for setting up new industries will be generally

restricted to projects with Investments on capital & working capital of Rs 2
to 3 lakhs. At best these can be termed as Self-employment ventures for
income generating opportunities and providing employment opportunities
for one or two persons.

Projects with investments ranging from Rs 5 lakhs and more can be

considered only by educated entrepreneurs with financial resources and
capable of sustaining the unit through established markets.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
Such entrepreneurs too would require escort services in terms of
Technical information and assistance to guide in preparation of project
reports, financial assistance etc. from professionals. They would also need
to be encouraged with incentives and physical infrastructures and financial
assistance with out delay.

The target group for a planned development at the taluk level at least
during the initial two to three years, would therefore comprise of
Entrepreneurs with minimum undergraduate level education and low
investment potential. Women more than men, SHGs etc.

The potential industries that could be promoted by such

entrepreneurs would therefore be restricted to
• KVIC projects
• Dairy products
• Consumer Chemicals for rural and semi –urban areas
• Ready made garments
• Skill oriented self-employment projects – Hand embroidery, Jute
bags, Rexene school bags, artificial jewelry, soft toys, etc.
• Home cooked food products,

All these projects fit into the schemes of PMRY, KVIC, etc and
can be classified as “DO- ABLE” and “ACHIEVEABLE” through an
integrated and a well-defined action plan.

Appropriate technologies and agencies to assist in implementing

the projects is available and within the scope and targets of the


An action plan can be envisaged ONLY IF the inputs in terms of

providing all the essential escort services – consultancy, technical
assistance, financial assistance and general motivation and guidance etc -
are available to the entrepreneur for a sustained length of period.

All efforts at identification of entrepreneurs, conducting training

programmes, etc would be an attempt in vain if the two most important
elements are not made available to the entrepreneurs.

1. Financial assistance
2. Sustained escort services at the taluks itself.
Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
Agencies providing escort services:
District Industries Centers
Small Industries Service Institutive
Department of Animal Husbandry
Nationalized banks, Cooperative banks, Gramina banks etc

Phase 1 -
All agencies should agree to promotional methods and adopt suitable
plans from selection of entrepreneurs, identification of projects and in the
financing of projects for each taluk for each year.

Technical assistance and escort services must be made available by

all these agencies on a systematic basis through mutually acceptable terms
and a time frame to implement “DO- ABLE” and “ACHIEVEABLE”

A suggestive operational mechanism to achieve implementation of plan:

1. Identify a Suitable location for all interactions between institutions,

entrepreneurs etc a Knowledge Center to be the focal point for all
2. All agencies agree on the action plan in terms of no. of entrepreneurs
identified projects, financial assistance, scheme through which to
implement, training , management and other escort services.
3. The center is positioned with at least one person from any one of the
organizations at any moment of time to provide the escort services
on rotational basis.
4. Ensure proper linkages with all schemes and organizations

“Motivation, Technical information and Assistance will be the key to

success “

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
Based on the above an action plan has been prepared

1. Meeting with all organizations providing technical assistance

and escort services:
SISI / DIC / TECSOK/ KVIC/KVIB/Dept.of Animal Husbandry/Dept.
of Horticulture/ Zilla panchayat

Agenda :
• To identify and approve of projects
• To formulate a system for identification of entrepreneurs.
• To prepare a schedule for implementation
• To define the escort services from each organization
• To define the financial and other commitments by each
• To devise a suitable reporting & monitoring system

2. Schedule for Programmes :

 Motivation
 Entrepreneur development
 Technical counseling
 Management development programmes
 Project report and financial assistance
 Project implementation
 Technical assistance and guidance.

3. Action Plan for each activity and agency


Agency: Schedule: Budget: No of beneficiaries: Government support etc.

Phase 2 (Providing Urban Amenities in Rural Areas) –

• Establishing Knowledge center

• Establishing a Common facility and “Incubation Centre” for a group

of entrepreneurs engaged in similar activities\

• Establishing a brand image and exploring bigger markets

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
Availability of finance is essential for the speedy industrialization of
an area. Finance is required both for fixed and working capital of the
industry. State Bank of India is the lead Bank in the district. Other
important banks in the taluk are Canara Bank, Syndicate Bank, State Bank
of Hyderabad, Krishna Grameena Bank etc. Besides, Karnataka State
Financial Corporation is also financing the industries. Gulbarga Taluk has
45 commercial bank branches and 9 branches of Krishna Grameena Bank.
Among the Commercial banks the State Bank of Hyderabad has the
maximum number of Branches. The bank network at present seems to be
adequate. However, they should come forward to finance the entrepreneurs
to set up the industries.

In addition to the above commercial banks Grameena Banks, KSFC

etc there are six Branches of urban Co-operative Banks, and 4 PLD Banks
who also provide finance. There are 479 number Credit Co-operative
Societies in the taluk consisting of 89,598 members. The KSFC has
financed 25 Nos. of units and disbursed Rs. 412.73 lakhs out of sanction of
Rs. 432.65 lakhs in Gulbarga taluka during 2004-05.

The district Annual Credit plans for non farm sector (SSI) and trade
and services in Gulbarga Taluk for the year 2003-04, 2004-05 and 2005-06
are placed below. Table 7.8 indicates Annual Credit Plans for three years.

It can be seen from the table that there was less credit available in
2004-05 for the non-farm sector. However, the annual credit plan for 2005-
06 shows more credit available for both non-farm sector and Trade and
Services. It is expected that because of the higher outlay in non-farm and
trade and services sector, there will be more scope for setting up of SSIs
and Service Industries in future.

Provision of adequate working capital to industrial units hardly

needed emphasis. Number of small units become sick due to paucity
working capital. While the Working capital requirements for one
operating cycle is generally capitalized in the Project cost, many new as
well as existing units find it hard for arranging additional Working capital
for increased production. This is especially so in the case of units assisted
by KSFC. Lack of effective co-ordination between KSFC and banks has
led to sickness of many units. Keeping this in view, the working capital is
estimated at 40% of the Term Loan for the proposed units. Accordingly,
banks have to make adequate provisions for working capital to these units
in their service area plans. The block-wise and activity-wise allocations of
the various investments under the NFS during the year 2006-07 are
indicated below

New Strategies need
Out of nearly 7000 SHGs. Promoted by various NGOs/Voluntary
Agencies/Self Help Promoting Institutions is in the District about 90%
are women groups. But still there is large scope for encouraging women in
the field of economic development with the following strategies:-

 Co-ordination of the activities of different

agencies/Institutions engaged in development of women.
 Close liaison by Training Institutes with financial
Institutions for ensuring credit linkage to the trainees.
 Capacity building of inexperienced and junior
NGOs/Voluntary Agencies.
 Monitoring of credit flow to women by Controlling
Offices of banks.
 Involvement of certain Senior NGOs as Resources
Agencies for formation, strengthening, training and credit-linking
SHGs in co-ordination with banks and NABARD.
 Krishna Grameena Bank which is identified by
NABARD for replicating Cauvery Grameena Bank model has to
concentrate on some identified activities and groups for over-all
economic development of women through its Women Development
and Technical Monitoring and Evalation Cells.(TME)

 Krishna Grameena Bank has set up Technical

Monitoring and Evaluation (TME) Cell in its Head Office to give
impetus to financing of NFS sector and NABARD has been
providing grant assistance to this cell.
 DIC may identify locations for group activities based
on locally available raw materials and guide the rural people to take-up
such activities by co-ordinating with banks for extending credit

 Targets under employment generation programme like

VISHWA, may be fixed keeping in view of the defects / shortcomings
identified in the evaluation study report.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
 Co-ordination between banks and KSFC to solve the
problem of providing working capital to sustain the units and effective
recycling of funds.
 NGOs / Voluntary Agencies to concentrate on the
development of RNFS through SHGs by ensuring straining on skill
development, financial assistance from Banks etc.

Explanatory Note

 Though Gulbarga district is endowed with a variety of

natural resources, the district continues to be backward. One of the main
reason is the lack of local entrepreneurial talents.
 Though people do have surplus money on account of
various commercial crops and increase in trade and commerce activities,
they are shy of investing in industry and take risks.
 It is gathered from NABARD that 6,822 technical
graduates, 1,428 nos. of Diploma holder and 3,235 ITI trained persons
are unemployed. There is therefore, a need for the creation of strong
vibrant entrepreneurial base among the skilled and non-skilled persons
through intensive Motivation Campaign, seminar workshops and
 Organizations like S.I.S.I., CEDOK at Dharwad, Rudsetti
etc be given responsibilities to encourage the people to set up industries
by providing basic information & need based training etc.
 It is learnt that there is significant development in
increasing Horticulture Crops production through a Programme already
initiated by National Commission on Horticulture. It is informed that
about Rs.14 crores will be spent for Horticultural Development of the
district during the next 7 years. As a result, Horticultural crops
production will go up significantly. Hence, there would be very good
scope for fruit processing industries in the near future.
 K.V.I.Board should provide finance to the rural artisans to
set up village industries and improve rural economy.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
 Government should encourage Mall or super markets in
different locations of the taluk to facilitate marketing of consumer items
manufactured by local industries.
 While discussing with officers of GESCOM at Gulbarga,
it was revealed that there would be no problems for the supply of
 GMUL (Gulbarga Milk Union Ltd.) has one processing
plant at Gulbarga with capacity of 60,000 lpd. Average sale of milk by
GUML is only 32,000 lpd. It is learnt that GUML is operating only on
five main milk routes and 2 shuttle routes for collection of milk.
Therefore, GUML or Zilla Parishat may take action to promote more
numbers of Bulk Milk Cooling Units (BMCU) in areas where collection
route are not covered.
 The District has got 26 nos. of NGOs engaged in socio-
economic development of local people. Most of the NGO’s are
functioning in all the taluks. They may take action to motivate rural
young entrepreneurs to take up manufacturing activities in coordination
with DIC and local banks.
 There are significant nos. of S.H.G in the district who are
involved mostly in agricultural and on DAIRY activities. They may be
motivated to take-up processing activities.
 The Karnataka Udyoga Mitra or State Electronics
Corporation may initiate steps to invite IT industries located at
Bangalore or outside the State to set up industries in IT/BT.
 DIC may take effective steps for the revival of sick, which
are economically viable.
 Government may consider to provide more incentives to
attract entrepreneurs as industrial development is not progressing inspite
of the existing incentives and concessions.
 A Knowledge facilitation centre be established in each
taluk which will be a nodal centre for all activities to facilitate all
agencies for over all development.
 Last but not least, the banks should come forward to
finance the industrial activities liberally.
 The KIADB has taken measures to acquire suitable land in
the district. So far the KIADB has developed 320 Industrial plots of
which only 9 plots are to be allotted. So the other acquired areas may be
developed quickly and made ready for allotment.
 KSSIDC had developed 140 industrial plots in Industrial
areas in different taluks. Out of these plots only 17 plots are vacant.
However, out of 682 industrial shed more than 1/3rd of the sheds are
vacant. KSSIDC may take suitable steps like Motivation Campaign etc.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
to attract the Potential entrepreneur to come forward to setup industries
in vacant sheds.
 Besides, there are no developed industrial plots or
industrial sheds in two taluks viz., Afzalpur and Yadgir of the District.
Both KIADB and KSSIDC may take suitable steps to provide the above
facilities to the potential entrepreneurs of these two taluks. The
KSSIDC may also plan to construct 30 readymade sheds each at Shah
bad in Chittapur taluk and Aland taluk.
 There are about 7000 SHGs promoted in the district out of
which about 90% are women group. These SGHs may be motivated by
DIC ,KVIC, KVIB and NGOs to take up production of domestic
consumer products like Papad making, Vermicelli making, Agarbatti
rolling, Detergent Power etc. which would improve their economic

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan


The important factors considered for identifying suitable and
profitable lines of manufacture are resources, (material and human), future
improvement in resource mobilization due to NABARD Projects as well as
district credit plan, existing infrastructure, likely to give impetus to
infrastructure in the future, skill improvement due to proper training by
training organizations and motivating SHG Groups to take up
manufacturing activities. Besides, present industrial structure and demand
for both consumer and industrial goods and services required in the near
future have been kept in view while suggesting the scope of Industries in
the taluk. In addition to the above views expressed by prospective
entrepreneurs, knowledgeable person in trade and industry, Industry
Association, Hyderabad Karnataka Chamber of Commerce and Industry;
Taluk Industry offices and District Industries Centre, the candidate industry
for the next five years have been suggested below. However, the candidate
industries suggested are only illustrative but not exhaustive. The identified
industries and Matrix—for Development of candidate industry, Investment
and Employment Generation in Gulbarga Taluk are given in enclosure.

Explanatory Notes
• The candidates industries suggested to be set up during the period
2006 to 2011 as projecting for every year seems to be not realistic.
• The industries suggested - Keeping in view of the trend of nos. of
industries set up during last five years.
• Agro clinics have been suggested considering availability of Agri-
graduates who could provide extension and technical services and for

production of bio-fertiliser and bio-pesticided including vermi
composing to the farmers.
• Bulk Milk Cooling Units (BMCU) have been suggested as milk
collection route of G.M.U. Ltd. are limited and milk is being spoiled due
to absence of collection agencies.
• No. of Artisans based industries have been suggested considering the
artisan available in the taluk which could also improve the rural
economy and provid employment to rural artisans.
• It is desired that Government may set up a complex at Gulbarga for
fruit processing activities.
• There is no scope for Ancillary industries.
• A Cluster Industry Complex may be set up at Gulbarga for catering
the need of Dal industries. It is reported that Dal mills are concentrated
in Gulbarga Town which has 67 mills. The Dal mills use traditional
technology. Many Dal Mills do not have dryers and sun drying is
commonly adopted. Therefore, it is desired that steps should be taken to
upgrade the technologies of these mills. It is wished that either the
Karnataka Tur Development Board located at Gulbarga or Karnataka
Centre for Technological up-gradation located at Bangalore may initiate
steps to undertake technological up-gradation of these Dal mill.

people through its branches.
• There is scope for setting up of one complex for readymade
garments manufacturing industries for domestic use as well as for
• The Government may consider for setting up of one complex for
IT/BT industries at Gulbarga city. However, the investment may vary
from Rs. 50 crore to Rs.100 crore depending on requirement of IT
Industries. The proper infrastructure may also be created to cater the
need of IT Industries.

entrepreneurs to take up rain water harvesting activity.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
Providing Urban Amenities in Rural Areas (PURA)
Vision 2020
Proposal for setting up an incubation centre for food products.

PURA kick-starts the economic growth and development in rural

areas by providing urban amenities in selected rural clusters around selected
towns that would set off further economic activities to generate ripple effect
in the surrounding areas

That PURA is based on the concept that villages around a town have
an in-built potential to foster fast and if infrastructural facilities are
extended to these villages, they not only develop themselves but become
growth centers to the adjacent areas too. The idea is to primarily build on
the extant schemes of the Central and State governments and meet
infrastructural gaps, if any, through funding from PURA.

The vision of transformation to a ‘developed’ India can only be

realized if we launch a mega mission for empowering the rural people. Such
Model of establishing a circular connectivity among the rural village
complexes will accelerate rural development process by empowerment.
Schools with best infrastructure and teachers who love teaching, primary
health centers, silos for storage of products and markets for promoting
cottage industries and business, employment opportunities for artisans are
some of the elements of PURA

The PURA has to be a business proposition economically viable and

managed by entrepreneurs and local people and small scale industrialists, as
it involves education, health, power generation, transport and management.
Government’s support should be in the form of empowering such
management agencies, providing initial economic support and finding the
right type of management structure and leaders to manage and maintain.

Knowledge facilitation centre

A Knowledge facilitation centre be established in each taluk which will
be a nodal centre for all activities to facilitate all agencies for over all
development. The centre may also provide facilities for training, common
facilities for packaging of products, demonstration & training in specified
trades etc. Such a facility would also be the first step towards implementing
PURA in taluks and a great motivating factor for the entrepreneurs.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
What infrastructure facilities can be created to sustain growth?
A meeting place for women entrepreneurs, self help groups , NGO’s
etc for discussions, interactions etc a place exclusively which can be called
their own with basic amenities like water, power ,toilets , teaching aids, and
some minimum furniture. This “centre” becomes the FUNCTIONAL
place for all economic activity and knowledge centre. Incubation centers
to train & encourage revenue generating activities. To act as a common
facility centre by providing facilities in selected income generating activity.
Pay & Use concept. Encourage cluster approach for all commercial gains.

What is an incubation center?

A centre that provides Training & Demonstration on any processing
or production activity using appropriate technology to produce goods
suitable for commercial markets. It will also provide the facilities for
producing goods by utilization of facility on nominal payment basis.

What are the advantages of such incubation centers/ common utility

 No initial investment on the part of the entrepreneur
 Can be trained on usage of appropriate technologies
 Practical training will lead to quality awareness and understanding of
financial & Commercials aspects of doing business.
 Helps in doing part time business. Does not affect regular work at
home especially for Women.
 A larger section of the society can utilize the facilities which will
encourage more Participation.
 Will have access to technical inputs from experts.
 Common Brand names can be established.
 Small quantities can be produced there by all resources of agro
produce like fruits, vegetables etc can be utilized and waste
 To provide the licensed facility for manufacturing food products
either for test market or commercial market.

What are the suggested areas for an incubation center?

• Emerging market trends indicate growth in
• Food products & Fruits & Vegetables processing
• Consumer Chemicals
• Ready Made garments
• These sectors also provide opportunities for creativity & community
working using common facilities.

Women from the same locality can be identified and trained. They
can work in shifts or on mutually convenient days and times. All
entrepreneurs shall also be trained in operation & simple maintenance hence
dependence on others is not there. It also reduces costs and importantly
brings self confidence among the entrepreneurs.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
Management of center.
The center should function as a profit center generating revenue
through training and outsourcing of common facilities. Revenues can also
be generated by taking up marketing activities on behalf of the group or
individuals as dealers, distributors, agents etc.Ideally a Self Help Group or
an NGO should be entrusted with the task of managing the center with all
users having a stake either in equity or as a cooperative.

A cooperative gives them twin benefits. Earnings through profits and

dividends from the institution. It also gives them a sense of ownership
which increases active participation.

The tasks involved are multifarious:

 Needs good coordination to maintain and sustain logistic support for
 To establish linkages with promotional & marketing outlets.
 Maintain proper books of account & documentation of activities.
 Maintain a Clean working environment
 Conduct training programmes frequently
 Constantly interact with government departments for information,
faculty, and incentives.
 Interact with financial institutions to assist entrepreneurs for working
capital etc. After attaining the self confidence to become independent
and work on their own.

There are many government organizations providing technical
assistance and training. To mention a few KVIC, SISI, CEDOK etc the DIC
with help from the CEO Zilla panchayat can organize regular training
programmes. However training can also be imparted through food

Marketing is one of the most difficult tasks at any level. An intensive
training on all aspects of marketing will have to be imparted from time to
time from experts in the field.
With the growth of retail industries the demand for goods from this sector is
expected to grow at 15 to 20% per year. The growth of retail industry
through malls and multiplexes are expected to reach the districts- Tier Two
cities -within the next five years which will create a huge market for
outsourcing. With developments in communication & transport systems
there will be a window of opportunities. Marketing at District level and in

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
big cities can be done through direct sales, participation in exhibitions,
through dealers or as direct vendors.

We could promote a few entrepreneurs to become self employed by

taking dealerships and retail selling through small vehicles under PMRY
scheme . This would complete the cycle.

It will also be appropriate if each District headquarters has an

exclusive marketing outlet for products made at taluk level. Small Space,
of about 10 Sq.Mtrs , can be rented for periods ranging from 15 days to
three months at a time at nominal costs. Such an outlet will provide
opportunities to a large section of entrepreneurs from the rural areas on a
continuous and rotational basis.

An entrepreneur from the district headquarters may be encouraged to

set up a market outlet as a commercial enterprise with assistance from

We strongly advocate a common facility center in each District or

taluk to foster quick industrial & economic growth of the rural areas.

Requirement of Important Infrastructure.

 Knowledge facility center ITI’s should become the Hub of all

entrepreneurship activities and a nodal centre for all agencies to
train, demonstrate, discuss, disseminate information.

Primarily the progress at any level will depend upon the abilities of
the local people to leverage upon all the schemes & incentives offered by
Government. Its abilities to constantly interact with all promotional
agencies like SISI, KVIC, NABARD, AWAKE, NDDB, NGO’s, Training
institutions, financial institutions etc
Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan

It is also important that there is interaction & linkages between all

the promotional agencies so that there is a wholistic approach and resources
mobilized and well utilized.
Information is the key to success.

At present each institution is engaged in its own sphere of activity

for different target groups as a result no definitive results are visible. There
is little follow up and escort services, which is essential for promoting
entrepreneurship. Most often there is no awareness nor publicity due to non
availability of a meeting place.
One of the major reasons is that there is no nodal or central meeting
place for all activities to take place. It is therefore proposed that a
Knowledge facility center is established in each taluk. This center should
be the springboard for entrepreneurs with the following facilities

• A meeting room for interaction between groups / entrepreneurs and

• A conference room for lectures with modern public address systems,
LCD projector, computer system/ Laptown and other teaching aids.
• Internet connectivity system
• An Incubation center for one or more trades i.e. food processing,
bakery products, processing of fruits & vegetables, ready-made
garments, biotechnology etc. with packaging machines.
• The center can be a common facility center by renting the facilities
on machine hr. basis for women, SHG’s and others for income
• To provide practical training & demonstrations in manufacture of
consumer chemical items
• To provide outlets (space) for marketing of products for short
duration for entrepreneurs from rural and other areas.

Such a knowledge center will facilitate in

• Conducting all meetings in permanent place.
• Common meeting place for all development & promotional agencies
to help better Coordination between all agencies.
• Will facilitate to invite knowledgeable people to impart information
& training
• Entrepreneurs will generate self-confidence and motivation.
• Group activities can be encouraged.
• Availability of officers / extension services routinely and regularly.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
• There will be a beehive of activities, which is the first step to
promote entrepreneurship.

economy of the district as it contributes 29.65% to the districts income.
The next two sectors in terms of higher contribution are other services
and "Construction" which contribute 13.02% and 11.18% respectively to
the districts income. The table also indicates that the income of the
district from other key resources of the sectors is Forestry, Fishing and
Mining and Quarrying are very insignificant contribution being 1.89%,
0.12% & 1.55% respectively to the districts income. This suggests that
action may be taken to develop forestry and fishing sectors and
exploitation of minerals of the district for an overall development of
the district and improving its economy. At present, there is not much
scope for the resource based industry related to Forestry, Fishing and
Mineral. The per capita gross domestic product of the district stands at

Portrays the resources endowment – natural & human

It is of vital importance to study the various resources available in

an area before embarking upon the identification of industries, having
scope for development in that area. It is a well-known fact that the
industrial development of an area depends to a great extent on its
resource endowment and its proper exploitation and utilization. In this
chapter, the resources of Gulbarga taluk have been analysed and this
would lead to justification of resource based industries in the Taluka.
The resources of the area can be distinctly classified into the following
(a) Material Resources,
(b) Human Resources.

(a) Material Resources:

6.1 Agriculture: -
(a) Land Holding: -

There are 52,089 land holdings in the taluk. Table 3.1 indicates the
category wise land holdings of the farmers in Gulbarga Taluk during

important cereals, Gram, and Tur are important pulses. Groundnut and
sunflower oil seeds are important oil seeds grown in the taluk. Sugarcane
has also got good acreage compared to that of the District. The area
under crops "more than one" constitutes 33% of the Net area sown in the

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
c) Agricultural Marketing: -
The agriculture produces grown in the area are generally brought to
the regulated market for fetching better prices for the farmers. In Gulbarga
Taluk, there is one main regulated market and one sub regulated market.
Total transactions for agriculture produce that has taken place during 2004-
05 was Rs. 19,239.07 crores against Rs.41,403.67 crores transacted in the

The soil and climate of the taluk are favorable for growing
horticultural crops in the taluk. The farmers are not coming forward to
increase area under horticulture crops due to the absence of marketing
conditions and cold storage facilities. The production of horticulture crops
may go up if some cold storage facilities are established and some fruit
processing units are started in the taluk.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan

Availability of sufficient infrastructure facilities like land, factory
accommodation, railways, Roads, Airlines, Post offices, financial
institutions are essential for development of industry in an area. While
thinking infrastructure development, it can be kept in view to provide Urban
facilities in Rural Areas (PURA) as the present President of India envisaged
in his vision 2020 on resurgent Rural India. The PURA consisting of four
connectivity of the village cluster through quality road and transport;
electronic connectivity through tele-communications with hi band width,
fiber optics cables reaching rural areas from urban cities and through
internet ‘Ki soks’ knowledge connectivity through education, vocational
training for farmers, artisans and craft men and entrepreneurship
programme; these three connectivity’s leading to economic connectivity
through starting of enterprises with the help of banks; micro-credit and
marketing the products.

It is in this context, the present infrastructure facilities available in

the taluk as well as in the district are analyzed below and further
improvement of the same will be discussed later.

The infrastructure facilities are classified into two broad categories

i.e. physical infrastructure and social infrastructure.

(a) Physical Infrastructure: -

It is mentioned earlier that 12373 hectares of land not available for
‘cultivation’ and follow land constitute 37,738 hectares in Gulbarga Taluk.
That is to say 50111 hectares of land in the taluk can be allotted for setting
up of industries. The area can be utilized for setting of industry in future
either allotting the area to prospective entrepreneurs or the Government
agencies may acquire them, develop the land for industrialization .

The taluk receives water supply from Bheema River, Bennithora

river and Bhosga tank due to implementation of water supply projects by
Karnataka Water Supply and Development Board. In addition, Gulbarga
taluk also receives water from Mullamari River. The water received may be
used to supply to the industries coming up in the near future.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan

7.1 Roads: -
Proper road network is very essential for acquiring raw materials
from different sources as per the requirement of existing and new industries.
The same also helps in marketing of the finished products of the industries
located in an area.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan


Government of Karnataka
Annexure - A
1. Introduction:
1.1 Karnataka is one of the top 5 industrialized States in the country. It
has a history of pioneering industrial development initiatives since
the time of the Princely State of Mysore and subsequently in the post
independence era. The State was the first in the country to have
brought out a State Industrial Policy during 1983, followed by
successive State Industrial Policies in 1988, 1990, 1993, 1996 and in

1.2 During the just concluded 2001-06 Industrial Policy period,

investment approvals of mega projects [ with investments of over Rs.
50 crores each] by the State High Level Clearance Committee
[SHLCC] and large & medium projects by the State Level Single
Window Agency [SLSWA] have shown sustained increase / growth.
The number of projects approved by the SHLCC is 148 with an
investment of Rs.1,15,882 crores and with an employment potential
of 11,03,824 persons. Similarly, the number of projects approved by
SLSWCC is 861 with an anticipated investment of Rs.19,043.73
crores and employment potential of 5,90,869 persons. During the
same Policy period 65,231 SSI units registered with Rs.2,079.62
crores of investment and provide employment to 2,95,487 persons.

1.3 The State GDP growth rate during 2005-06 is 8.7% with industrial
sector accounting for 18%. Having regard to this it is felt that the
new policy should have a mission to achieve GSDP growth of over

1.4 The industrial recession, which was prevalent upto 2002-03 has now
given way to increased investments & growth, as is evident in the
year - wise investment approvals by SHLCC & SLSWCC.

1.5 However, this increased flow of investment need to be supported

with (i) On demand infrastructure availability, (ii) Human resource
for diverse sectors, (iii) Support to technology up-gradation, quality
improvement and (iv) Single Window support and facilitation
mechanism, so that the projects are implemented expeditiously and
go into operation.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
1.6 Today, there is intense competition between States for attracting
investments. Investors naturally choose the State that offers best
combination of (i) Industrial & Social infrastructure, (ii) Human
resources, (iii) Technology savvy work force and (iv) The State that
offers “Ease of doing Business".

1.7 The fiscal / taxation regime and incentives & concessions offered by
the States & Government of India also have important bearing on the
locational decision of projects.

1.8 His Excellency, the President of India Dr. A.P.J.Abdul Kalam, in his
address to the members of the Karnataka Legislature on 20-11-2005
on the occasion of "Suvarna Karnataka celebrations" had advocated 11
Missions for Karnataka's prosperity. Of these, Missions on Textiles,
Bio-fuel, Agro processing and Entrepreneurship are related to
industries sector and addressed in this Policy.

1.9 Government accords highest priority to the objectives of dispersal of

industrial investments in various backward regions / districts of the
State so that the fruits of economic development and employment
opportunities are shared by all segments of society and in all parts of
State in as equitable manner as possible.

1.10 The New Industrial Policy 2006-2011 attempts to address the above
aspects in a balanced manner.

2.1 Policy to help facilitate the State achieve a GSDP growth of over 9%,
which in turn call for an industrial sector growth of over 12%.

2.2 To focus on strengthening of the manufacturing industry in the State

and to increase it's percentage share of the GSDP from the present
average of 16.70% to over 20% by the end of the policy period.

2.3 To achieve an increased share of Karnataka's exports in the National

exports from the present 15% to 20% by the end of the policy period.

2.4 To create additional employment generation to at least 10.00 lakh

persons in the manufacturing and service sectors during the Policy

2.5 Promote diversified industrial base with strength in both old economy
& new economy fields.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan

2.6 Facilitate reduction of regional imbalance in the matter of economic

opportunities, employment and growth.

2.7 Endeavor to promote sustained industrial growth by facilitating

accelerated flow of investments.
2.8 In short, to promote sustained, growth oriented industrialization with
employment & revenue generation, for overall socio-economic
development of the State.

Keeping the above objectives in mind, the strategy for further
industrialization of the State during the next 5 years would be:

3.1 To classify various taluks of the State into 3 Zones for the purpose of
focused attention:

(i) Zone-1:-
79 Taluks - most / more backward Taluks as categorized by
Dr. D.M.Nanjundappa Committee Report.

(ii) Zone-2 :-
85 Taluks - [ Taluks not covered in Zone 1 & 3].

(iii) Zone-3 :-
12 Taluks - of Bangalore Urban & Rural Districts
[excluding Taluks of Kanakapura & Magadi]
Mangalore and Mysore Taluks.

Details of Taluks indicated in Annexure –B

3.2 To develop industrial infrastructure facilities ahead of the

requirements, in various key location of the State through the
KIADB / KSSIDC. Annually a minimum of 5,000 acres of quality
industrial infrastructure would be created, during the Policy period.
Such Industrial Areas will be developed in an integrated manner
reserving up to 25% of the area for housing and other social
infrastructure. The equity base of KIADB would be strengthened
through greater support.

3.3 Keeping in view the fact that water is a crucial support requirement
for industrialization, Government would facilitate implementation of

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
mega industrial water supply schemes for potential locations through
Special Purpose Vehicles [SPVs].

3.4 A comprehensive Power Policy would be formulated by the

Department of Energy. This Policy would encourage power
generation from IPPs and also through captive power generation.

3.5 To meet the rising energy requirements of the State on account of

rapid industrialization, Government would facilitate preparation of a
"Gas Distribution Master Plan" to enable public / private sector
players to bring in gas from diverse sources for distribution.
3.6 Apart from standard infrastructure in the form of industrial areas and
industrial estates, specialized industrial infrastructure for specific
sectors and Special Economic Zones [Multi-product, Product specific,
Sector specific and Free Trade Zones] would be encouraged to be
established through both KIADB as well as private sector promoters.
The establishment of multi-product and product specific SEZs will be
encouraged in all districts of the State except Bangalore Urban
District. However, establishment of SEZs even in Bangalore Urban
District will also be encouraged if the proponent of SEZ comes
forward to do so in his/her own land or through a joint development
agreement with the land owners.

3.7 The ONGC in association with Govt. of Karnataka is already

implementing a large Multi-product SEZ that would predominantly
house Petroleum refining and Petro-Chemical projects. Govt. would
take up with Govt. of India for enlargement of the size and scope of
Mangalore SEZ Ltd. in to Petroleum, Chemicals & Petro-chemicals
Investment Region (PCPIR).

3.8 Industrial corridor / Cluster development would be encouraged in

potential locations.

3.9 State would encourage alternate partnership & financing options for
infrastructure development.

3.10 Focused attention on sub-sectors / areas where the State has core
competency i.e., Aerospace, Engineering, Automobile, Machine-
tools, Steel, Cement, Pharmaceuticals, Food Processing, Apparel &
Textiles, Electronics, Information Technology, Bio Technology etc.

Gulbarga District – Gulbarga Taluk Industrial Perspective Plan
3.11 In view of the fact that the silk reeling sector is highly employment
oriented, a separate package will be formulated in consultation with
the Sericulture Department.

3.12 Impetus for development of renewable & non-conventional energy

sources through Mission approach.

3.13 Human Resource Development - Government would promote / help

facilitate establishment of specialized skill development institutions
at key locations suitable for the manufacturing industries and
emerging vocations in the service sector. A scheme of State support
through public, private partnership would be evolved &
implemented. The Government assistance will be in the form of
providing land and financial assistance for creation of basic
infrastructure facilities as follows:
(i) Grant of up to 5 acres of Government land will be considered
along with capital contribution of 50% of the project cost
subject to a ceiling of Rs.2 crores per Training establishment for
sector specific training.
(ii) Recurring cost for running the training institution an amount of
Rs.750/- p.m./ per trainee will be provided subject to a ceiling of
Rs.15 lakhs per year for a period of 3 years.
(iii) Government will launch a new scheme to provide Rs.750/- p.m.
stipend for on-the-job training of unemployed educated youth
for training in different vocations through industrial / service
establishments. The Training Institutions would also consider
providing matching contribution towards stipend to the trainees
