Location Considered for the project Following district’s are the preferred location for the project : Hubli / Hassan / Tumkur (Turuvekere) / Mandya (Nagamangala) 7
Why these 4 districts • All the four are connected with National highways i.e. (NH-48 and NH-4) • All the four are well connected with Rail link • Hassan and Hubli districts are having airstrip • Economical and well educated manpower available • Number of Educational Institutions, polytechnics , Engineering colleges and Technical training institutes • All the four are having well irrigated land • The agricultural output is good when compare to other districts in the state • Favourable weather condition • Favourable State Govt . Policies till date • Situated midway to Mangalore and Bangalore 10
Highlight of Project • • • • • • • • Providing High end infrastructure for agro industries in SEZ like roads, structures and facility , parking lots and weighing bridges and cranes etc Services like power, 100 % power back up, treatment plants, HVAC system, CCTV in common areas, BMS. More than 50 thousand direct employment will be created and indirect employment more than 1.5 lakh. Amenities like Convention Halls, Business hotels & auditoriums , Hotel for refreshments, Health clubs etc operation and maintenance of entire Infrastructure with in the SEZ, Security in the open space and common areas will be done by the developers Going to rope all the farmers to enjoy the benefits of the project to the max. Hospitals , agricultural equipment industries, R & D centres for agriculture sector etc will be housed in this SEZ Creating a Marketing Block for the Agricultural products and sales * Conditions apply 11
Agri industries help strengthen the farm sector and stabilize rural incomes AGRI Industries are considered an extended arm of agriculture but in India they have not received as much attention as agriculture. While agriculture contributes about 25 per cent of India's GDP the value added by the processing industry is only 8 per cent of total food production. For example, only two per cent of horticulture products are estimated to be processed and more than 30 per cent of production is wasted due to lack of storage and processing facilities. 12
Multiple Benefits The focus on value addition in the agriculture sector is vital for comprehensive development of the rural economy. Since the food processing industry creates jobs, demand for agri raw materials, leads to diversification and commercialization of agriculture, enhancing the incomes of farmers and creating surpluses for export of agro foods. The broad-based development of the food processing industry will improve both the social and physical infrastructure of rural India. 13
Strength • Supporting Infrastructure • strategic locations • well connected by road, rail , and Air • excellent Business lease model • Economical labour & Govt. initiative • Skilled Manpower • excellent supply of agri products Weakness Opportunities • Generates employment & investment • Enhance income of farmers • leads to diversification and commercialization of agriculture • As there is no Agro Sector Specific MSEZ in INDIA • there exists a huge opportunity for related industry in agriculture Agro Multi product SEZ • No regulatory framed work available for Agro sector Specific • Green field project • untapped sector • political and community attitude Threats • Hassan textile SEZ • Mangalore Multi product SEZ • Govt. Policies • Nandhgudi SEZ near Bangalore. 14
Recommendations • To design the Sector specific policies for Agriculture sector. • To give the unique permission to sell the products with INDIA and should give all the incentive and tax holidays slightly longer than the other commercial SEZ. • Govt. Should ensure the process of approvals to be smooth and single window clearance need to be ensured etc. 15
