Karnataka CM, Shri Basavaraj Bommai was also present during the event.

Additional Chief Secretary with Karnataka Govt, Dr E. V. Ramana Reddy represented the State during the signing ceremony. He wished this venture all the success after remarking, “Karnataka had the pride of getting the largest Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in India last year and it is also the number one state in the country for the ease of doing business. The purpose of ‘Invest Karnataka 2022’ is to continue attracting the best businesses to invest in our great state and partake of its many beneficial policies. It is clear today that renewable energy is the only way equitable development and environmental balance can be ensured which will help our state to create a safe and healthy world for future generations. By generating jobs and livelihoods, we hope to contribute in a more meaningful manner to the people of Karnataka.”

“We, along with our partners, are deeply honoured to be a part of the INVEST Karnataka 2022,” said Mr Ravi Kumar Reddy, Chairman & MD, ABC Cleantech. Representing the company at the event, Mr Reddy exuded confidence in the proposal by saying that it would help the country to move towards a net-zero carbon economy while at the same time contributing to the local economy. “The employment opportunities that this project would generate in the State of Karnataka, particularly where this project is proposed to be set up should be a boost for the state’s well-being as well.”
