GIS for Government land, Industries

About 40,000 acres of government land, 126 industrial areas and thousands of companies -- all these will be brought under the GIS mapping. To keep a tab on effective utilization of land allotted to industries, all industrial sites in the state will come under GIS ambit. GIS mapping allows the department to keep constant vigil on industries.

The Karnataka Industrial Area Development Board (KIADB), a premier industrial area developer and nodal agency to monitor all industrial sites, along with Technical Consultancy Services Organization of Karnataka (TECSOK), have already prepared a blueprint for GIS mapping of KIADB's 126 industrial areas, spread over 40,000 acres in the state.

Besides having particulars on availability of water and its sources, power and other basic amenities, GIS mapping of industrial areas is a ready reckoner on the total extent of land, industrial area location-wise, category of industries, status of units and plots available for allotment.

As a first step, KIADB has served notice to nearly 200 companies, seeking an immediate reply for not establishing the units even several years after the government approved the land. [via]
