Govt signs 147 projects

Karnataka signed 147 projects with a commitment to invest Rs 1.33 lakh crore in the two-day Invest Karnataka event across energy, pharma, information technology & biotechnology, agriculture, infrastructure and tourism. This is in addition to Rs 1.75 lakh crore worth of projects approved by the state over the past year, which combined, would generate nearly 700,000 jobs.
“Mobilising investments is a continuous process, it is not a process that can be done in two days. But we are confident with the amazing response that there should not be any doubt that Karnataka will be the key destination in India for investments,” said R V Deshpande, industries minister with the government of Karnataka. In order to ensure that the MoUs and interest showed by investors is realised and turned into actual investments, Karnataka has appointed an official to follow up on projects where investments are above Rs 200 crore. Moreover, the state will aim to have all projects approved by high-power committees and single-window committees before May 15.
