Industrial Park Division
Industrial Parks & Estates are a cradle set up by the government for the growth of small scale sector. These are specific areas zoned for industrial activities in which infrastructure such as roads, power and other utility services are provided to facilitate the growth of industries and to minimize impacts on the environment.
An Industrial Park is an area of land set aside for industrial development. The concept of setting up of Industrial Park is to enable to concentrate dedicated infrastructure in a delimited area to reduce the per-business expense of that infrastructure, to enable to attract new business by providing an integrated infrastructure in one location, etc.
By investing in an Industrial Park, one can achieve environmental improvement, cost saving, social improvement etc. through
• effective dissemination of instruments and management methods between companies located inside the Industrial Estate
• close co-operation of companies with respect to economic, environmental and social issues
• improved communication between stake holders and customers
• Synergy effects through joint use of infrastructure, joint procurement of production resources and raw materials and bye-products exchange.
Many of the Companies would have many years of experience which could be utilized for the conception planning and implementation of further environmental and energy related projects and programs.
The concept of setting up of Industrial Parks in all the Legislative Constituency with the help of the Grama Panchayats is to be worth considered as the overall industrial growth of the state. By setting up Industrial parks in all Districts, there will be a balanced growth of the industrial sector especially small and medium sector throughout the state.
