He further said that the government has introduced an initiative for the development of an industrial ecosystem called Product Focussed Industrial Cluster Development Program. Through these product-specific manufacturing, clusters are being developed across the state.

Gaurav Gupta, principal secretary, commerce and industries said that Karnataka is one of the top states in the country when it comes to chip design sector. It contributes 40 per cent to electronic design and 30 per cent to electronics manufacturing in the country. It is also home to about 30 per cent of ESDM companies.

Special package to investors

Gupta added that Mysuru is the ideal location for eco-friendly ESDM activities while Dharwad is best for innovative electronics manufacturing related activities. The government will provide a special package to investors who come forward to invest in this sector. It will also provide world-class infrastructure.
