                      CREDIT PLAN 2006-07
Under the Lead Bank Scheme the Credit Planning exercise every year
assumes lot of importance for ensuring balanced credit flow to all potential
sectors. The relaxation of Service Area Approach by the Reserve Bank of
India has given further fillip to the rural lending by providing level playing
field for the bankers and easy access for the rural borrowers to any bank of
their choice. The District Credit Plan (DCP) for 2006-07 has been drawn
taking into account the above relaxation based on the Potential Linked Plan
prepared by the NABARD and the credit requirement under various
Government sponsored schemes.

The following is the sector-wise credit plan for 2006-2007 :-
                                                                (Rs.in Lakhs )

                         New Industrial Policy
      The New Industrial Policy and the incentives package shall be
      deemed to have come into effect from 1.4.2006 and will have a span
      of five years there from i.e. up to 31.03.2011.

      1. Introduction:

      1.1 Karnataka is one of the top 5 industrialized States in the country.
      It has a history of pioneering industrial development initiatives since
      the time of the Princely State of Mysore and subsequently in the post
      independence era. The state was the first in the country to have
      brought out a state industrial policy during 1983, followed by
      successive State Industrial Policies in 1988, 1990, 1996 and in 2001.

      1.2 During the just concluded 2001-06 Industrial Policy period,
      investment approvals of mega projects [with investments of over
      Rs.50 cores each] by the State High Level Clearance Committee
      [SHLCC] and large & medium projects by the State Level Single
      Window Agency [SLSWA] have shown sustained increase/growth.
      The number of projects approved by the SHLCC is 148 with an
      investment of Rs.1,15.882 crores and employment potential of
      4,90,869 persons. During the same policy period 65,231 SSI units
      registered with Rs.2,079.62 cores of investment and provide
      employment to 2,95,487 persons.

      1.3 The State GDP growth rate during 2005-06 is 8.7% with
      industrial sector accounting for 18%. Having regard to this it is felt
      that the new policy should have a mission to achieve GSDP growth
      of over 9%.

      1.4 The industrial recession, which was prevalent up to 2002-03 has
      now given way to increased investment & growth, as is evident in
      the year – wise investment approvals by SHLCC & SLSWCC.

      1.5 However, this increased flow of investment need to be supported
      with (i) On demand infrastructure availability, (ii) Human resources
      for diverse sectors, (iii) Single Window support and facilitation
      mechanism, so that the projects are implemented expeditiously and
      go into a operation.


      1.6 Today, there is intense competition between States for attracting
      investments. Investors naturally choose the state that offers best
      combination of (i) Industrial & Social infrastructure, (ii) Human
      Resources, (iii) Technology savvy work force and (iv)The Sate that
      offers “Ease of doing Business”.

      1.7 The fiscal / taxation regime and incentives & Concession offered
      by the states, Government of India also have important bearing on
      the locational decision of Project.

      1.8 His Excellency, the president of India Dr. A.P. J. Abdul Kalam,
      in his address to the members of the Karnataka Legislature on 20-
      11.2005 on the occasion of “Suvarna Karnataka celebrations” had
      advocated 11 Missions for Karnataka’s prosperity of these Mission
      on Textiles, Bio-fuel , Agro processing and Entrepreneurship and
      related to industries sector and addressed in this policy.

      1.9 Government accords highest priority to the objectives of
      dispersal of industrial investments in various backward regions/
      districts of the State so that the fruits of economic development and
      employment opportunities are shared by all segments of society and
      in all parts of State in as equitable manner as possible.

      1.10 The new Industrial policy 2006-211 attempts to address the
      above aspects in a balanced manner.

      2. Vision:

      2.1 Policy to help facilitate the state achieve a GSDP growth of over
      9%, Which in turn call for an industrial sector growth of over 12%.

      2.2 To focus on strengthening of the manufacturing industry in the
      State and to increase its percentage share of the GSDP from the
      present average of 16.70% to over 20% by the end of the policy

      2.3 To achieve an increased share of Karnataka’s export in the
      National exports from the present 15% to 20% by the end of the
      policy period.

      2.4 To create additional employment generation to at least 10.00 lakh
      persons in the manufacturing and service sectors during the policy


      2.5 Promote diversified industrial base with strength in both old
      economy & new economy fields.

      2.6 Facilitate reduction of regional imbalance in the matter of
      economic opportunities employment and growth.

      2.7 Endeavor to promote sustained industrial growth by facilitating
      accelerated flow of investments.

      2.8 In short, to promote sustained, growth oriented industrialization
      with employment & revenue generation, for overall socio-economic
      development of the State.

      3. STRATEGY:

      Keeping the above objectives in mind the Strategy for further
      industrialization of the State during the next 5 years would be:

      3.1 To classify various taluks of the State into 3 zones for the
      purpose of focused attention:-

      (i) Zone-1:- 79 Taluks - most / more backward Taluks as
      categorized by Dr.D.M. Najnjundappa Committee Report.

      (ii) Zone -2 :- 85 Taluks – [Taluks not covered in zone 1&3].

      (iii) Zone -3:- 12 Taluks – of Bangalore Urban & Rural District
      [extending Taluks of Kanakapura & Magadi] Mangalore and Mysore

      Details of Taluks indicated in Annexure -A

      3.2 To develop industrial infrastructure facilities ahead of the
      requirements, in various key location of the State through the
      KIADB/KSSIDC. Annually a minimum of 5,000 acres of quality
      industrial infrastructure would be created during the policy period.
      Such Industrial Areas will be developed in an integrated manner
      reserving up to 25% of the area for housing and other social
      infrastructure. The equity base of KIADB would be strengthened
      through greater support.

      3.3 Keeping in view the fact that water is a crucial support
