Make in Karnataka

From the Editor’s desk With its legacy of talent and hard work, Karnataka is an active participant in the Make in India movement. Indeed, industry has found a conducive environment here from the pre-Independence era. We are privileged to present to you the country’s strengths and, specifically, the advantages of this state in this book, ‘Make in Karnataka’. We present here in-depth overviews of the sectors that are the focus of the ‘Make in India – Karnataka’ conference. Source materials for data used in the book are drawn from, among others: IBEF, www.makeinindia.com, data.gov.in, McKinsey India, Ernst and Young, PWC, Grant Thornton, Economic Survey of Karnataka 2015-16, Directorate of Economics and Statistics, Government of Karnataka. To bring in uniformity, we have standardised the currency conversion rate in the book to US$1= ₹66.52, rounded off. Much has been made over the years of Bengaluru’s climate and knowledge pool. Apart from these desirable attributes, the fortuitous decisions by technology companies to set up shop in this city created an ecosystem that, having grown in leaps and bounds, shows no sign of stopping. With the government giving a booster shot to entrepreneurs across industry sectors, and in hubs across the state, Karnataka’s invitation to ‘Make in India’ in Karnataka appears to be a ‘must-accept’.

Sandhya Mendonca Editor-in-Chief

Mr. RV Deshpande, Minister for Large & Medium Scale Industries and Infrastructure Development, Government of Karnataka

Karnataka: An overview As 2017 begins, leaving behind a tumultuous 2016, India remains the one bright spot in a dull global economy. A variety of forces are helping India grow at a brisk rate, even in the midst of a prolonged economic downturn worldwide. These include a substantial internal market, a youthful aspiring population, financial outreach to the unbanked and the emergence of widespread mobile telephony and e-commerce. Consequently, India continues to attract significant foreign direct investment (FDI), outpacing even China and the United States in 2015. FDI is a vote of confidence in Make in India and lays the foundation for sustained growth. Once investors decide to come into India with FDI, where do they focus within the country? The factors that influence them include: 1) a facilitative, supportive state government; 2) infrastructure; 3) natural resources; 4) talent and high quality human resources and 5) a culture that supports enterprise and innovation. This chapter explores how Karnataka performs on these factors, given that it has been among the top four destinations for FDI.

Facilitative Government A century ago, Mysore State (which was renamed Karnataka) was renowned as a model kingdom, led by an enlightened ruler and supported by outstanding Diwans like Sir M Visvesvaraya and Sir Mirza Ismail. This tradition has continued in modern times and the state government has a solid track record of being supportive and facilitative through a range of proactive policies. The Siddaramaiah-led Congress government’s social sector schemes have created a crucial safety net for the poor and vulnerable. A pioneer of e-governance, Karnataka’s ‘Mobile-One’ app provides access to 600+ government services and 3,000+ private services. Industries Minister RV Deshpande, a veteran in the field, has proactively created a productive environment for

industry. The state’s solar energy policies are bringing in farmers and homeowners as partners in efforts to reach self-sufficiency in power. Other recent governance innovations include the ‘Sakala’ programme, which guarantees that citizens receive a range of public services in a timely manner. Karnataka has also set up Karnataka Udyog Mitra (KUM), a ‘single point of contact’ to ease the process for investors in the state. KUM helps investors understand the salient features of Karnataka and its unique advantages, discusses project identification, suitable locations, human resources, approvals required, procedures involved etc. Working on a Single Window Clearance mechanism, KUM has cleared projects worth over `3,000 crore ($451 million approximately) in the last year, in sectors like Information Make in Karnataka |


Karnataka: An overview Technology (IT), tourism and manufacturing.

Infrastructure and Industrial Clusters A farsighted Karnataka government set up Electronic City in 1978, laying the foundation for the nascent IT industry to emerge as a global force. The government also opened up professional education to non-governmental bodies, enabling the state to produce large numbers of engineers and doctors. Public-private partnerships have resulted in world-class infrastructure such as the Kempegowda International Airport serving the state capital Bengaluru. The state government has established industrial areas and promoted clusters across the state, and provides valuable incentives to locate there. Together with the Government of India, it is establishing National Investment Manufacturing Zones in Tumakuru and Kalaburagi. The national ‘Smart Cities’

programme will include Belagavi, Davanagere, Hubballi-Dharwad, Mangaluru, Shivamogga and Tumakuru in the state. A helicopter manufacturing plant is coming up at Gubbi, close to Tumakuru. A new Indian Institute of Technology will soon come up at Dharwad. Britain and Japan are investing in two mega industrial corridors, Mumbai-Bengaluru and Bengaluru-Chennai respectively, enhancing infrastructure and connectivity. In addition to its renowned service sector strengths, Bengaluru has a thriving manufacturing ecosystem, including the pioneering Peenya industrial area and Bidadi, which hosts Toyota. The garment sector thrives across the city. The highway between Bengaluru and Hosur in Tamil Nadu hosts a range of world-class service and manufacturing plants. On the Bengaluru-Chennai highway, the latest industrial park to take off is in Narasapura in Kolar district. Automotive giants like Honda and Scania, and British

International automotive giants like Honda, Toyota, Volvo and Scania have set up world class facilities in the state.

Karnataka: An overview pharmaceutical giant Abbott have set up world-class facilities there. At the diametrically opposite northwestern end of the state, another education-focused city, Belagavi, now has a flourishing aerospace Special Economic Zone promoted by Aequs and Magellan. In the southern heartland, Hassan is emerging as a major textile hub, triggered by Himatsingka Seide’s `1,000 crore ($150.3 million approximately) plant. Reaffirming its commitment to Karnataka, this vertically-integrated home textile firm is now adding another `1,300 crore ($195.4 million approximately) investment that will backward integrate into spinning and diversify its high class product range that it sells worldwide. On the southwestern coast, the districts of Udupi and Dakshina Kannada have their own economic drivers. The birthplace of multiple banks more than a century ago, they also host a thriving educational ecosystem. Infosys and other IT majors have tapped into this talent pool by setting up development centres in Mangaluru, while mobile game development startups like Robosoft have emerged in Udupi, adjoining the privately promoted Manipal University.

Resources: Natural and Heritage Karnataka has a diverse range of natural resources and strengths. Fisheries flourish on the coast. Wineries are emerging around Bengaluru and Vijayapura, boosted by the proactive government wine policy. Horticulture, dairy and sericulture thrive across the state. Wind and solar energy have tremendous potential, while hydropower is abundant in the state’s numerous rivers. Mining is reviving in the iron ore-rich Ballari region. Karnataka’s commitment to preserving the ecological hotspot of the Western Ghats led it to close the Kudremukh mines. Such conservation efforts have been rewarded with Karnataka hosting more than 400 tigers, the highest number of this majestic endangered species nationally.

Britain and Japan are investing in two mega industrial corridors, MumbaiBengaluru and Bengaluru-Chennai respectively.

The hills of Kodagu and Chikkamagaluru are famous for coffee estates. Their picturesque settings have led to a boom in homestays and resorts for tourists. Mysuru, famous for its Dasara festival and palaces, continues to be among India’s top tourist destinations. The awe-inspiring ruins of Hampi and the temples of Pattadakal are already UNESCO heritage sites, along with the Western Ghats. In line for this global recognition are the temples of Belur-Halebid, the monuments of Srirangapatna, and the Deccan sultanate in Bidar, Kalaburagi and Vijayapura. Overall, when it comes to tourism, the state is blessed with immense possibilities. Make in Karnataka |


Karnataka: An overview Reverence for Professionalism Many citizens of Karnataka have been awarded India’s highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna, uniquely for their contributions in fields apart from politics. Legendary engineer and administrator, Sir M Visvesvaraya was the Diwan of Mysore and industrialised and modernised the state while establishing dams, universities and banks. Nobel laureate Dr CV Raman established centres for scientific research in Bengaluru. Recently, the Bharat Ratna went to Prof CNR Rao, a leading scientist and institution builder. The legendary Hindustani classical singer, Bhimsen Joshi, whose music took us to sublime heights, is another Bharat Ratna. Such people with outstanding accomplishments are Karnataka’s role models. Karnataka’s citizens revere outstanding professionals across fields. One of the Indian Army’s two Field Marshals, KM Cariappa, hailed from Karnataka’s Kodagu region. Kannada literary giants, including the eight Jnanpith award-winning writers, are household names. Sportsmen, e.g., badminton world champion Prakash Padukone and Indian cricket captains Anil Kumble and Rahul Dravid, are highly regarded for their discipline and sportsmanship. Karnataka has been home to outstanding musicians, and is a confluence of both Hindustani and Carnatic classical traditions. The Kannada theatre scene is vibrant and the film industry has a history of critically acclaimed cinema as well as breakthrough popular hits like Mungaaru Male. Overall, the state has a reputation as a haven for merit, where talent can flower and people have a quiet self-confidence, untouched by arrogance.

Knowledge Economy and Entrepreneurship Starting with the Indian Institute of Science, established more than a century ago by Jamsetji Tata and the Maharaja of Mysuru, Karnataka has built a strong knowledge economy. Public sector institutions like the Indian Space Research Organisation, Hindustan Aeronautics, Bharat Electronics, etc., helped Bengaluru emerge as a hub for intellectual talent. Today, 10

Bengaluru has been recognised as Asia’s leading knowledge hub, with 201 engineering colleges, 114 medical colleges and institutions, 50 universities and 13 international schools, apart from more than 400 multi-national companies having their worldclass high-end research and development centres. The numerous engineering graduates have enabled Indian and multinational companies to scale up rapidly. Infosys, Wipro and other IT companies provided employment to millions, attracted talent from across India and became worldwide brands for high-quality outsourcing. Cisco has even established its second global headquarters here. Software exports from the state have crossed more than `50,000 crores ($7.5 billion approximately). The IT sector’s success has unleashed growth in IT-Enabled Services ranging from call centres to design outsourcing to animation. Technicolor’s Bengaluru centre has creative artists whose VFX (visual effects) for Prometheus and Life of Pi led to an Oscar nomination and an Oscar award respectively. Research and development is another domain which has led to companies flocking to Karnataka. Aerospace majors like EADS and Airbus, automotive giants like Daimler Chrysler and GM, pharmaceutical companies like AstraZeneca, and the innovationfocused 3M have all tapped the state’s brainpower with their research centres in Bengaluru. GE’s Jack Welch research centre in Whitefield is one of three worldwide. It has produced numerous patents by connecting its research team to product lines. In the public sector, the National Centre for Biological Sciences and the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research are at the forefront of scientific discovery. The success of IT pioneers at home and of Indians in Silicon Valley has unleashed the spirit of entrepreneurship among India’s professionals. Infosys represents the iconic inspirational story of a bunch of engineers who started with practically nothing but used their brains to build a billion dollar enterprise. By pioneering

Dr Kiran Mazumdar Shaw’s is another inspiring story of a woman who started a biotech firm in her garage, which became the billion-dollar Biocon. These stories have helped Bengaluru become India’s startup capital. The café chain, Coffee Day, the healthcare giant, Narayana Health, and Manipal University are all products of Kannadiga entrepreneurship that are establishing a global footprint.

Bengaluru: India’s Dynamic Startup Hub Karnataka has been ranked first for its healthy business climate and attracting investments by the World Bank’s Investment Climate Index. The World Economic Forum has identified Karnataka among the top four innovation hubs in the world. The cosmopolitan nature of Karnataka’s people, combined with the vibrant, open,

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has reiterated that by nurturing innovation, Karnataka intends to create a tsunami of beneficial impact. Priyank Kharge, Minister for Information Technology and Biotechnology, has launched various schemes to support startups and intends to set up technology incubators in areas such as Internet of Things, robotics, 3D printing, and medical devices. The government has also approved a proposal to set up six common instrumentation centres across Karnataka that will allow electronic hardware startups and small enterprises to fine-tune their products. The government has also planned to set up centres of excellence in aerospace, cyber security and big data. In January 2017, the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation won the gold award from the Government of India for the ‘Innovative use of ICT by State Government PSUs Cooperatives Federations Societies’ category. This was the first time a state transport corporation has bagged the gold medal for excellence in e-governance. Make in Karnataka |


Karnataka: An overview Unique in Giving Back Karnataka’s IT billionaires have set an exemplary trend in giving back to society. Foremost has been Azim Premji of Wipro. He became India’s leading philanthropist when he donated more than `50,000 crore ($7.5 billion approximately) of his wealth to the Azim Premji Foundation that is doing significant work in education and development. He has also established the Azim Premji University in Bengaluru. The founders of Infosys, including Narayana Murthy, Nandan Nilekani, K Dinesh and Gopalakrishnan, have all been active philanthropists. Nilekani piloted the rollout of India’s Unique Identification system, Aadhaar, and the Nilekanis have contributed to think tanks, NGOs and institutes focused on urban governance and public policy. At the same time, they have invested in a range of startups, including those with an ambition to transform primary education through the innovative use of technology. Many other successful entrepreneurs now contribute to Karnataka’s thriving NGO sector and participate in active citizen engagement with governance.

Hidden Gem: Karnataka as Capital of Social Enterprise Karnataka has also become a global hub for impact-focused businesses. These aim to improve the conditions of people at the bottom of the economic pyramid in sectors like financial inclusion, healthcare, education, clean energy, agriculture and women empowerment. Since 2005, 30 percent of all impact businesses in India that have received venture capital are based in Karnataka. In 2007, Eric Savage, an American, moved to Bengaluru to set up, with others, Unitus Capital as an investment bank for social enterprises. It has already raised over `9,978 crores ($1.5 billion approximately) for companies that provide essential services at a low cost, organise fragmented markets, enhance livelihoods, or innovate in clean technology. Unitus Capital has proven this 12

The transparency of the system has empowered citizen activism and their participation in the public domain. Together, the government and citizenry have created an environment of achievement and entrepreneurship, enabled by resources, compassion and talent. The state thus possesses a youthful energy; hopeful, ambitious and eager to soar. With a culture of talent and hard work, there is no doubt that this state will soon exceed its global aspirations. Karnataka is truly where the future will be made. Come, Make in Karnataka!

Manufacturing & Startups

Upbeat on investment

The vision of the Government of Karnataka is to boost industrial growth in the state, especially in the manufacturing sector. In keeping with this mandate, the Department of Industries & Commerce is committed to the implementation of the proactive measures of the State Government, as outlined in the Karnataka Industrial Policy 2014-19. The thrust of the Karnataka Industrial Policy is on increasing the share of the manufacturing vertical in the GSDP of the state. The incentives for doing business in Karnataka, in specially selected growth hubs, have already yielded results that are evident in the substantial investments that the state has attracted. The State Government is also addressing the issues faced by industrialists and entrepreneurs to ensure that their proposed investments are converted to actual functioning manufacturing enterprises at the field level by providing all facilitation services. The Department is proactively working to ensure that the ‘Ease of Doing Business reforms’ in Karnataka not only compares with the best practices in other states of India but also other leading industrialised countries in the world.

Mr. DV Prasad, IAS, Additional Chief Secretary Commerce & Industries Department Government of Karnataka

The ‘Make in India – Karnataka’ Conference in Bengaluru is a focused attempt to assist global and domestic industries to invest in Karnataka and become a part of the industrial landscape of the ‘most dynamic state in India’.

Aerospace & Defence


| Make in Karnataka

Aerospace & Defence Cleared for take off

It’s a clear sky for Karnataka in India’s buoyant aerospace market. Karnataka has two international and five domestic airports, apart from three for defence and one for a flying school. The state plans to develop airstrips and helipads at all district headquarters and important industrial destinations that lack air connectivity. Additionally, with India planning to increase the number of operational airports to 250 by 2020,  some of Karnataka’s 15 unserved airports/airstrips could soon be part of the Ministry of Civil Aviation’s Regional Connectivity Scheme, also known as UDAN (Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik), that will boost flight connections to small towns.

Aerospace & Defence India’s aerospace market is one of the five fastest growing in the world with 275 million new passengers – it had a collective operating profit of `8,100 crore ($1.22 billion approximately) in 2016 – and is expected to become the third largest aviation market in the world by 2020. This year, domestic traffic is expected to cross 100 million passengers. The country is also seen as a one-stop source for all required services from design and development to manufacturing, maintenance and repair operations. Two major factors contribute to the surge in manufacturing and related activities in this industry. The domestic demand for aircraft has shot up sharply over the last 20 years, due to an upsurge in the country’s economic growth. Additionally, the Government of India’s decision to allow 100 percent FDI in the defence sector, along with policy measures such as the National Civil Aviation Policy 2016, has opened the market to further expansion. Low-cost carriers and new carriers cater to a growing middle class that travels by air, and there is a rise in both business and leisure travel. With passenger traffic growing at 20 percent per annum in the last two years, Indian carriers plan to increase their fleet size to reach 800 aircraft by 2020. India has large scale collaborations/M&A deals such as Etihad Airways & Jet Airways, Tata Group & Singapore Airlines and Tata Group & AirAsia. Parallely, the Aerospace & Defence sector has been growing too, and India’s expenditure on aircraft acquisitions is estimated to be `5 lakh crore ($75.2 billion approximately) over the next 10 years. The growth in aviation is impacting India’s Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) segment, which is estimated to reach `1,300 crore ($195.4 million approximately) by 2020. The robust growth potential of the industry is attracting global aerospace giants to set up shop in India, providing tremendous opportunities 18

| Make in Karnataka

for industry participation. Given the labour-intensive nature of the MRO segment, several leading MRO companies, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and international airlines have outsourced heavy-maintenance work to India, adding to India’s growth potential and generating employment. All this is good news for Karnataka, which is set to soar high with the growing demand from both defence and commercial aerospace sectors. Most of India’s strong domestic manufacturing base is housed in Karnataka. It offers the other cost advantages that the country has to offer, such as liberal Special Economic Zones (SEZ) laws that provide attractive fiscal benefits for developers and manufacturers, and a well-educated and skilled labour force. These factors make India and Karnataka a highgrowth player in the aerospace and aviation market. Karnataka’s aviation story began in 1940 with the establishment of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) in Bengaluru. This led to the setting up of several defence public-sector undertakings and R&D institutions in the state like Bharat Earth Movers Limited (BEML), Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), Gas Turbine Research Establishment (GRTE), National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA), Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE), and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), among others. Apart from these large public-sector enterprises, several international private players have also invested in the state’s aerospace sector, such as Rolls Royce, Boeing, Airbus Group, GE Aviation, BAE Systems, Safran, Honeywell and UTC Aerospace. New companies are also establishing operations on the city’s outskirts, in key industrial belts surrounding Bengaluru and in North Karnataka. One such company is Aequs (formerly QuEST Global) which established a manufacturing and precision engineering SEZ in Belagavi on 300 acres of land in 2009.

Aerospace & Defence

The legacy of public sector companies in aviation manufacture and defence research and development, has given Karnataka a great advantage. Seen here is the assembly line at HAL, established in 1940.

The focus is on aerospace components and sub-systems, and building a precision engineering and manufacturing end-to-end ecosystem (supply chain cluster). There are also numerous joint ventures between domestic and foreign companies, providing opportunities for knowledge sharing and technological benchmarking. HAL has signed three joint venture agreements: first, with Snecma, a global manufacturer

of jet engines for commercial aircraft, to produce jet engine components; second, with Rolls Royce, which resulted in a stateof-the-art facility producing compressor shroud rings for aeroengines, and third, with Airbus, to manufacture passenger doors for Airbus A320 and A321. Well-developed ecosystem The state offers a number of advantages that make it the Make in Karnataka |


Aerospace & Defence preferred destination for most investors in this sector. Some of the broad benefits are: §§ Competitive edge for Karnataka deriving from relatively lowcost aerospace manufacturing and MRO activities vis-à-vis Asia and the Middle East §§ Presence of large defence PSUs, including the Defence Avionics Research Establishment (an arm of DRDO), which was established in 1986 in Bengaluru, aimed at enhancing the operational capabilities of the Indian Air Force through modern technologies §§ Expertise in aerospace with over 2,000 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), which execute niche subcontracting work like component manufacturing, tooling and testing equipment, and assembling for the defence PSUs §§ Presence of a number of top companies in IT/IT-Enabled Services and electronics hardware, many of which are a part of the supply chain for the aerospace sector §§ Bengaluru’s leadership in heavy manufacturing due to the presence of innumerable PSUs, software, aerospace and telecommunications companies, machine tools and heavy equipment manufacturers and defence establishments – all of these can serve as crucial linkages in the aerospace industry’s production process. §§ Maximum number of engineering graduates in the country, with a large number of them being employed in IT, design and engineering – this provides an advantageous position to the state with reference to labour skill sets. §§ Presence of scientific and academic institutions, such as the IISc, enable the development of qualified technical experts who can be absorbed into aerospace operations §§ Convenient location, far away from potential conflict-prone neighbouring countries, strategically connected through 20

| Make in Karnataka

airports, rail and roads. §§ The state also offers easy connectivity to industrial hubs like Pune, Hyderabad and Chennai. §§ Work ambience is conducive with a non-unionised working atmosphere. And, of course, the state’s fabled weather and cosmopolitan lifestyle. All the above factors have enabled Karnataka to consolidate its pioneer status and continue as a natural choice for investors and stakeholders. The state intends to take advantage of the promising scenario and is projecting itself as the aerospace hub for Asia in the next five years, and as one of the top global aerospace and MRO destinations by 2023.

Aerospace Policy To channel and provide a direction to the state’s efforts to capitalise on its dominance in the aerospace sector further, the government introduced the Karnataka Aerospace Policy 2013 – 2023 (KAP), which was amended in 2016 to include the new location-based incentives offered by the Karnataka Industrial Policy 2014-19. Karnataka is the first state in India to introduce a dedicated policy for aerospace. KAP 2013 – 2023 is divided into two five-year phases. Phase 1 (2013-18) aims to attract investments worth `24,000 crore ($3.6 billion approximately), create 40,000 employment opportunities and increase the contribution to the Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP) from 28 to 30 percent. Phase 2 (2018-23) aims to improve upon Phase 1 by attracting investment worth `36,000 crore ($5.4 billion approximately), creating 60,000 employment opportunities and increasing the contribution to GSDP to 32 percent. About 33 project proposals have been approved under the KAP during the Invest Karnataka Meet, 2017, with a proposed

Aerospace & Defence

investment of `14,720 crore ($2.2 billion approximately), which will create almost 10,500 new jobs. The overall policy objectives as outlined by KAP 2013–2023 are: §§ Make Karnataka a preferred global destination for manufacturing of aircraft, aircraft systems and subsystems, assemblies and components §§ Create an ecosystem comprising infrastructure, education and R&D to make the state a conducive hotspot for the aerospace industry §§ Develop Karnataka as a magnet for global tier-1 suppliers within the aerospace industry by:

§§ Make Karnataka one of the leading MRO hubs in Asia §§ Build a ready-to-employ human resources pool for the industry §§ Strengthen R&D for achieving innovative and cuttingedge technologies §§ Create enhanced facilitation mechanisms for ease of doing business through an industry-friendly policy framework

Growth Drivers In this regard, the state has identified the following sections and segments of the industry that could be potential and key growth drivers, if nurtured properly. Make in Karnataka |

The aircraft took to skies for the maiden sortie at HAL airport, Bengaluru, on June 17, 2016. The indigenous content on HTT-40 is close to 80% and almost 50% of the components on HTT-40 are manufactured by private players of the Indian aerospace ecosystem.

Maintenance and Repair Operations (MRO): India’s MRO segment is estimated to reach `1,330 crore ($200 million approximately) by 2020, especially as aerospace majors prefer to have their aircraft serviced locally to reduce costs and on-ground time, thus achieving faster turnaround time and large savings in operating costs. Karnataka offers tremendous potential for MRO activities and ground-handling, and the manufacture of ground support equipment, with major MRO players like Jupiter Aerospace and Taneja Aerospace being based out of the state. Currently, the overhaul of some of the defence aircraft in India is almost wholly carried out by HAL. HCL’s acquisition of Axon Consulting, which has strengths in aviation MRO, is further bound to reflect in the development of MRO capabilities within Karnataka.


There are future proposals

Aerospace & Defence to create world-class MRO facilities in Bengaluru near the current international airport and Mysuru on the public-private partnership (PPP) model.

NAL and ADA are the major Indian players who manufacture for the defence sector. Boeing, GE Aviation, Airbus and BAE Systems are the major foreign manufacturers which operate out of Bengaluru.

The potential of MRO holds much promise, as the state is a natural choice for locating relevant capabilities.

There are also numerous joint ventures between domestic companies and foreign companies that provide opportunities for knowledge sharing and technological benchmarking. Such enterprises go on to show the expertise held by the state in the manufacturing segment.

IT, Design and Engineering Services: Bengaluru is the technological capital of India and the fourth largest technological cluster in the world, with a huge set of institutions of higher research and talented, skilled labour. Many global aerospace majors have already set up their research bases in Karnataka. Since 2007, Boeing has been working together with the Indian Institute of Science, Wipro and HCL, as part of the Aerospace Network Research Consortium, India’s first industry-academia alliance. Airbus Group (formerly European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company or EADS) started research operations in Bengaluru in December 2009. Indian players have also made strides within the IT segment of the aerospace sector. Infosys Technologies helps build aircraft components and systems for customers like Boeing and Airbus; Wipro helps build electronic warfare systems, radars, aviation electronics and flight simulators for US defence contractors such as Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman, and has tied up with Britain’s largest defence manufacturer, BAE Systems, to build sub-systems for aircraft engines that power business jets; HCL Technologies is a strategic partner for Boeing’s Dreamliner programme. Aircraft Manufacturing: The state is home to some of the aerospace heavyweights – both national and international. HAL,

The state government allotted HAL 610 acres at Gubbi in Tumakuru to establish a Light Utility Helicopter Facility.

Agro & Food Processing Thirty one percent of India’s consumption comprises food and groceries, making the country the sixth largest food and grocery market in the world. This substantial shopping basket has given impetus to the processed food industry in the country and has attracted several major global players. Currently `2.64 lakh crore ($39.69 billion approximately), this industry is expected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11 percent by 2018 fuelled by the growing youthful population. India’s population is also increasingly urban, and the changing tastes have made the country both a consumer and producer of processed and packaged foods. India’s emergence as a sourcing hub of processed foods is due to its vast agricultural produce and livestock, with low costs of production and labour. With 127 agro-climatic zones across 195 million hectares of Gross Cropped Area, India is the largest producer, consumer and exporter of spices, and is the second largest producer of the world’s major food staples, wheat and rice. Agriculture and allied sectors (livestock, forestry and fishery) contributed 17.4 percent to India’s GDP in 2015-16, and agricultural products and produce constitute 10 percent of the country’s exports. The country was ranked 12th in the world in exports of food and food products in 2015. The sector is expected to grow by 6 percent in 2016-17, assuming weather conditions remain favourable, according to a report by National Institution for Transforming India (NITI Aayog). Karnataka is the fourth largest state in the country in terms of geographical area and is one of the leading states in the development of agriculture and allied sectors. The rich biodiversity and 10 agro-climatic zones of the state are conducive to the cultivation of various food and horticultural crops. Karnataka contributes 7 percent of the agricultural production of the country.

The industry for leather products is delicensed, which means that units are free to expand using modern machinery and equipment. In fact, companies in this sector have been making rapid strides in building capacity while paying adequate attention to effluents treatment and managing environmental implications.

Youth Power The leather industry has a young workforce; with 55 percent of the workforce below the age of 35, the Indian leather industry has one

Apparel & Leather of the youngest and most productive workforces. This has also necessitated a concerted attempt at skill development. This, coupled with favourable government policies, including 100 percent FDI, has made the industry a lucrative investment proposition. The industry comprises multiple major segments, namely footwear, finished leather, leather goods, garments like jackets, footwear components like uppers and soles, and saddlery and harnesses. The domestic market for fashion accessories is seeing an upsurge in demand for handbags, wallets, purses, etc. The per capita consumption of footwear in India is projected to increase to four pairs and total domestic consumption is expected to reach 5 billion pairs by 2020. Karnataka appears well placed to ride this wave. The story of the leather sector in the state started when Sir M Visvesvaraya set up South India’s first Tannery Production Centre, called the Mysore Chrome Tanning Industry, way back in 1940. Today, the state boasts of around 90 manufacturing units that produce footwear, bags and other leather products. Most of these units are concentrated around Bengaluru. However, the sector is fairly scattered with some presence in North Karnataka as well.

LIDKAR One of the most significant players in the state’s leather sector is the Karnataka Leather Industries Development Corporation (LIDKAR), renamed Dr Babu Jagjivan Ram Leather Industries Development Corporation. LIDKAR was established in 1976 with the twin objectives of developing the leather industry and improving the socio-economic conditions of the leather artisans. One of LIDKAR’s most critical contributions to the sector in the state has been training programmes for skill development and income enhancement. The corporation is also involved in establishing R&D centres and mini leather parks. It acts as a nodal agency for marketing leather products which are made predominantly in small scale units.

Export thrust Other than meeting increasing domestic demand, exports from the leather manufacturing units have been rising. At a value of `543 crore ($81.63 million approximately), exports in 2014-15 grew by 20 percent over `450 crore ($67.65 million approximately) in 2013-14. Exports in 2012-13 stood at `452 crore ($67.95 million approximately).

Apart from footwear and bags, Karnataka produces high end leather products like furniture and upholstery for automobiles.

Today, the country also happens to be the fifth largest market for passenger and commercial vehicles. In 2015-16, the overall market size witnessed a growth of 2.57 percent over the previous year. The automobile industry accounts for 7.1 percent of the country’s GDP by volume. India is also an important exporter of automobiles. The auto components sector, too, is not far behind. Over the last 10 years, 2006-16, the sector recorded a CAGR of 14 percent. As of 2016, the size of India’s auto components sector stands at `2.6 lakh crore ($39.1 billion approximately) and accounts for 2.3 percent of the country’s GDP. It contributes 4 percent to the country’s export basket, with the value of exports at the end of 2016 being `71,976 crore ($10.82 billion approximately). The sector appears well poised to achieve five-fold growth, targeting a turnover of `13.3 lakh crore ($200 billion approximately).

An expanding middle class and rising disposable incomes, both rural and urban, have been the primary growth drivers for the automobile sector as a whole. India also boasts of being home to the world’s 12th largest number of high net worth individuals (HNIs) and the list is ever growing. The growth has been remarkable in the two-wheeler market; with a total market share of 81 percent, the two-wheeler segment leads India’s automotive and spare parts industry. Another major push for this level of growth can be attributed to the growing interest of companies to explore rural markets. Further, government policies like lower excise duties and plans to promote environmentally friendly vehicles, and growth plans of key players in the sector promise to turn India into a global leader in the automotive sector by 2020.

In recent times, the industry in the state has seen rapid growth. In 2010, the sector only accounted for `7,318 crore ($1.1 billion approximately) worth of production and is today perched on top with an increase of 36.5 percent. The industry in the state has attracted annual investments of at least `4,657 crore ($700

Automobile & Auto Components million approximately), generating revenues worth `3,992 crore ($600 million approximately). It employs over 55,000 workers. The OEMs in Karnataka are fairly localised, which in turn helps them reduce manufacturing cost, consequently leading to an overall increase in profit margins. There are several factors that make Karnataka an attractive destination for investments in this sector. §§ The state has a strong and ever-growing customer base. Bengaluru has been hailed as the Silicon Valley of India for a long time now. Every year people from all over the country move here in pursuit of higher education or better jobs. As public transportation is not cheap here, most people who can ride or drive opt for two-wheelers or second-hand vehicles, thus contributing to the country’s growing automotive industry to a significant extent. There are over 44 lakh registered vehicles in Bengaluru city alone. §§ Karnataka is home to some of the leading original equipment manufacturing companies in the automobile industry, which form the foundation of the entire ecosystem. §§ Auto clusters are located in Hosakote in Bengaluru Rural, Bidadi in Ramanagaram and in Dharwad. §§ The industrial valve cluster is located in Hubballi-Dharwad. §§ The auto components clusters in Shivamogga and Belagavi connect to ports on the east and west coasts. §§ Geographically too, Karnataka is an extremely convenient location. Its proximity to the auto clusters in the south (Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh) and west (Maharashtra and Gujarat) make investors and manufacturers see the state as an ideal region for setting

up their plants. §§ The state is well connected to six major ports through a network of national highways, making movement of goods for exports easier. §§ A dedicated freight corridor between Chennai and Bengaluru to speed up goods movement has been planned. §§ Karnataka also has a robust workforce of highly skilled professionals – over 1,400 in ITIs and 400 R&D centres, and almost 200 engineering colleges that contribute to much of the innovation in the state.

Government enablers in growth In the Industrial Policy of 2014-2019, Karnataka has been identified as one of the focal points for the growth of the automotive sector. Keeping in step with national policies related to the industry, the Karnataka government has also made proposals that can be expected to help the state’s automotive sector grow further. §§ A Single Window Clearance mechanism has been proposed which will allow other departments to approve investments in the sector through an e-udyami. §§ Exporters who have held a good track record will be issued a Green Card that will enable a seamless movement of products and save them time at check points. §§ An Automobile Research and Innovation Centre has been proposed in Karnataka, which will also serve as an incubation center. §§ To further improve connectivity in the state, improvement of the port at Mangaluru has been prioritised. It will be connected to major industrial clusters within the state. Make in Karnataka |


Automobile & Auto Components §§ In line with the central government’s drive towards hybrid and electric vehicles, the state government has proposed a reduction of road tax and registration tax for manufacturers of hybrid and electric vehicles in the state. At present, manufacturers of hybrid and electric vehicles in Karnataka include companies like Mahindra e2o, Ather Energy (in which motorcycle major Hero has picked up close to 30 percent stake), Prevalence Green Solutions and Go GreenBOV. This particular area of the sector seems to have immense scope for growth. §§ Original equipment manufacturing companies are being encouraged to partner with various IT firms to provide

sector-specific professional training. A Sectoral Training Institute for the automotive industry has also been proposed in Bidadi and Narasapura. As per official reports, the state government is also in the process of announcing a dedicated Automobile Policy in addition to the existing ones mentioned above. Karnataka is uniquely poised for growth in the automobile and auto components industry. With its unique advantages, including geography and connectivity as compared to other states, and government policies designed to enable growth, the automotive segment seems to be the new sunrise industry after IT.

of the state’s Biotechnology Policy and aims to accelerate the pharmaceutical business in the state with a focus on R&D, intellectual property and clinical trials.

Pharma infrastructure

The KPP 2013 has identified three broad areas for investments: §§ Infrastructure §§ Education §§ R&D The infrastructure plans comprise pharma parks, common testing laboratories, cold storages and warehousing. The KPP 2013 envisaged creation of pharma parks in the PPP model with equity contribution of up to 26 percent from the Karnataka State Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation (KSIIDC), the Karnataka Industrial Area Development Board (KIADB) and the Infrastructure Development Department (IDD). The policy also offered a onetime capital subsidy of up to 50 percent of the total cost, subject to a ceiling of `5 crore ($751 thousand approximately), with the remaining 50 percent coming from the stakeholders. Additionally, a similar one-time capital subsidy with the same benefits was extended to establish effluent treatment plants. Each park is to be equipped with a common effluent treatment plant (CETP), common testing laboratory, cold storage with warehousing, and standalone power stations. Housing facilities with all basic amenities are also planned so that people can ‘walk-to-work’. Yadgir: KIADB has acquired around 3,000 acres of land at Kadechur and Badihalla in Yadgir district to set up a pharmaceutical SEZ. The area is well-connected by road to Hyderabad (Telangana); Vasco da Gama (Goa); and Bengaluru, Hubbali, Dharwad, Belagavi and Ballari (Karnataka).

region; it lies on the Mumbai-Chennai railway broadgauge line and is connected by rail to major towns in Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and, of course, Karnataka. The location and incentives offered have encouraged pharma companies to relocate from Hyderabad to Yadgir. The Yadgir industrial hub has attracted investments of `13,500 crore ($2.03 billion approximately) till date. Hassan: The KIADB Pharmaceutical SEZ in Hassan hosts six pharma units – two of which are already operational. The topography of Hassan and its climatic conditions, which are conducive to growing coffee, make it ideal for medicinal plantations. Medicinal, aromatic and other economical plants (MAOEP) are an important part of the biotech ecosystem and their culture provides growers with an opportunity to enhance their income. The processed and finished products, with their distinctive properties, contribute significantly to the pharmaceutical industry.

R&D and education The state government has also announced the setting up of

The state is home to many nationally and internationally renowned biotechnology research institutions, including the Indian Institute of Science, National Centre for Biological Sciences, NIMHANS, and Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research. It is also home to key life science companies like Advinus Therapeutics, AstraZeneca, Biocon Limited, Jubilant Biosys, Metahelix Life Sciences, Strand Life Sciences, Strides Arcolab and XCyton Diagnostics Limited. One of the key growth drivers for Karnataka that helps differentiate it from other biotech hotspots is the strong research base that has been created over time. There are 103 R&D centres which conduct frontline research. However, there is a dearth of skilled personnel, and to address this issue, the KPP 2013 has promoted Biotechnology Finishing Schools (BTFS) with well-equipped laboratory facilities and appropriate course content. This is expected to ensure a continuous chain of industry-ready graduates. Till date, 12 BTFS host institutions have been established, with `1 crore ($150 thousand approximately) being sanctioned per finishing school. In 2009, the state had set up a bio-cluster to facilitate research in biosciences and entrepreneurship by providing R&D, training and services in state-of-the-art technology platforms. The cluster consists of the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, the National Centre for Biological Sciences, and the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Platforms.

Biotech & Pharma Under the KPP, the Karnataka Government has proposed to set up a venture capital fund of `50 crore ($7.5 million approximately), with a price preference of 15 percent for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs). This is expected to lower the entry barrier for potential entrepreneurs in the pharmaceutical sector.

Nurturing biodiversity According to estimates, 198 pharmaceutical and 82 cosmetic units in the state use bio-resources in their production process. Under the guidance of the Karnataka Biodiversity Board (KBB), 4,636 Biodiversity Management Committees (BMCs) were set up to promote sustainable use and documentation of biological diversity at local levels. The BMC is mandated to prepare a People’s Biodiversity Register (PBR), in consultation with grama panchayats, which will contain comprehensive information on availability and knowledge of local biological resources and harness traditional knowledge on their use. In all, 468 PBRs have been prepared so far under the initiative, creating an invaluable database for the industry.

Some major moves Investment by GSK: GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals, the Indian unit of UK-based GSK, started work on its largest greenfield pharmaceutical manufacturing facility, in Vemgal in Kolar district, with an estimated investment of `1,000 crore ($150.3 million approximately). The facility is coming up on a 50 acre site and will make over 8 billion tablets and 1 billion capsules a year in the area of gastroenterology and antiinflammatory medicine. Availability of investment incentives and cheap government land were said to have sealed the choice of Vemgal. GSK‘s clinical development centre in Bengaluru includes a warehouse, site infrastructure, employee welfare centre, and utilities to support the manufacturing and packing of medicines. International Med Expo: Karnataka was identified by the Union Government to play host to the first-ever international exhibition and conference on pharmaceutical industry, India Pharma 2016 and Indian Medical Expo 2016, at the Bengaluru International

Besides the BMC initiative, the Biodiversity Board has mapped a biodiversity atlas, aimed specifically at maintaining biodiversity in arid regions. Project areas of 100-200 hectares have been demarcated across 13 dry districts, and 14 rare, endangered and threatened plant species have been identified. Going forward, the state proposes to set up a clutch of agribiotech parks. A Nutraceutical and Phyto-Pharmaceutical Park (N2P2) has been planned in Mysuru, in collaboration with the Central Food Technology Research Institute. A feasibility study is underway for the proposed agri-biotech park in Dharwad, in collaboration with the University of Agricultural Sciences. A similar marine/aqua biotech park has been planned in collaboration with the College of Fisheries, Mangaluru, and one for animal biotechnology, in collaboration with KVAFSU, Bidar. 52

This is also expected to attract FDI and incentivise local companies to expand operations in both greenfield and brownfield projects. Ayush licensing: The state has set up a full-time Ayush Drug Licensing Authority to strengthen inspections of the Ayurveda, Homoeopathy, Unani and Siddha medicine manufacturing and marketing activities in the state. There are 215 Ayurveda units, 10 Homoeopathy units, and two Unani units in the state. There are seven approved Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani drug testing laboratories to cater to market needs. Pharmexcil office: With Pharmaceuticals Exports Promotion Council of India (Pharmexcil) opening an office in Bengaluru, its fifth in the country, it is expected to play a pivotal role in establishing Karnataka’s credentials as a world-class pharma manufacturing state. It is also expected to help sort out all exportrelated challenges, especially those that exporters face while obtaining documentation from the office of the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO). In Karnataka, there are seven US FDA-certified, eight MHRAcertified, and 82 WHO-certified plants, besides several plants with international approvals, including those from UNICEF, MCC South Africa, ANVISA, and PIC/S (Pharmaceutical Inspection Convention and Pharmaceutical Inspection Co-operation Scheme) which reinforce the state’s position as a hub for quality outsourcing. On the face of it, companies appear well-equipped to meet future needs in the areas of innovative formulations, novel drug delivery systems and nanotechnology, among others.

Focus on North Karnataka

The state plans to allot over 400 acres of land to the pharma sector in the Hyderabad–Karnataka region, which will cost over `1,500 crore ($225.5 million approximately). Some of the incentives on offer by the state are: §§ The unit price of land being offered by the Karnataka Government is `7 lakh ($10 thousand approximately) per acre against `35 lakh ($52 thousand approximately) offered by the Telangana Government. §§ Karnataka offers 100 percent exemption of stamp duty on registration of loan agreements and land registration. §§ It also offers 100 percent reimbursement of land conversion fee. §§ There is 50 percent exemption on entry tax. §§ 100 percent capital subsidy on setting up effluent treatment plants. §§ 25 percent tax exemption on electricity tariffs. §§ 25 percent investment subsidy on upgrading technology. §§ A liberal interest subsidy on loans depending on the size of the investment. Apart from the state’s own policy measures to help grow the bio-pharma sector, Karnataka benefits from regional geopolitical changes. The bifurcation of the neighbouring Andhra Pradesh into Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, and the consequent lag in sorting out economic resources like water and power appears to be working to the advantage of Karnataka. More than 33 bio-pharmaceutical companies, including Virupaksha Organics, Gowra Petrochemical Industries, Optimus Drugs, and Hetero Labs, which have set up factories in Hyderabad, have crossed the borders into Karnataka.

Karnataka’s policy of offering competitive incentives to develop the backward Hyderabad-Karnataka region seems to paying off. Make in Karnataka |

Scorching growth

Karnataka’s knowledge-driven economy has it poised to lead the electronics hardware manufacturing and services space. Make in Karnataka |


Electronics Hardware Thanks to a strategic and continuous government push, the availability of skilled talent and a large domestic market, the electronics hardware industry in India is among the largest in the world, poised to touch `26.6 lakh crore ($400 billion approximately) by 2020. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 26 percent during the 20142020 period, indicating a scorching pace. At the forefront of this growth story in the sector are government initiatives such as allowing 100 percent FDI and schemes like the Electronics Development Fund, Electronic Manufacturing Clusters, National Knowledge Network and National Optical Fibre Network. The sector typically covers a wide array of sub-segments including consumer electronics, industrial electronics, electronic components, strategic electronics, semiconductor design and electronics manufacturing services. Due to exponential growth in domestic demand and India’s competency as a manufacturing hub for imports, some of the products which lead revenue generation include mobile phones, flat panel display TVs, notebooks, desktops, digital cameras, inverters/UPS, memory cards/USB drives, EMS/LCD monitors and servers. What is clearly driving the trend of India emerging as a major player in this sector is the huge skilled manpower advantage. India has the third largest pool of scientists and technicians in the world. It also has strong design and R&D capabilities in auto electronics and industrial electronics. This, coupled with proactive government policies, make the country a very attractive destination to set up a manufacturing base for these high-value goods. In fact, the government is also promoting the development of electronics manufacturing clusters throughout the country, prominently in India’s Silicon Valley, Bengaluru. 62

The expected market size for major electronics sub-sectors in India by 2020 are: §§ Telecom equipment - `2.3 lakh crore ($34.5 billion approximately) §§ Laptops, desktops, tablets - `2.3 lakh crore ($34.5 billion approximately) §§ LED - `2.3 lakh crore ($34.5 billion approximately) §§ Consumer electronics - `1.9 lakh crore ($28.5 billion approximately) §§ Set top boxes - `66,528 crore ($10 billion approximately) §§ Automotive electronics - `66,528 crore ($10 billion approximately) §§ Medical electronics - `56,548 crore ($8.5 billion approximately) It would be safe to predict that Karnataka and its capital Bengaluru – variably described as the Silicon Valley of India or the technology capital of India – will be at the forefront in the electronics hardware manufacturing and services space, given its knowledge-driven economy. The state has some inherent advantages. The primary enabler is its technology talent pool, which is a key catalyst for a strong knowledge-driven industrial base. The state, with its numerous academic institutions, churns out professionals to suit the needs of hardcore electronics disciplines such as Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI) conductors and semiconductor design and embedded software. As per the Karnataka Electronic System Design and Manufacturing Policy 2013, the state boasted of 85 chip design houses, 336 R&D facilities, and has over 6 lakh technology professionals employed in Bengaluru alone, in 2012.

Electronics Hardware Second, Karnataka is home to one-third of the software companies who contribute to over a third of national exports. The state already has an established base in electronics, computer software services and biotechnology – the knowledge-driven economic sectors, which together account for more than 60 percent of its total exports. The state’s exports amounted to `3.14 lakh crore ($47.2 billion approximately) in 2014-15, which is roughly about 13 percent of the total national exports for the year. In fact, exports account for a third of the state’s total income. Third, while the state enjoys the inherent advantages of a knowledge-based economy and a vast talent pool, it needed

a clear-cut policy direction that would propel the sector in line with the national goals of achieving `26.6 lakh crore ($400 billion approximately) revenue by 2020. Karnataka, predictably, envisioned that it would be a major contributor to this revenue target. Here is how:

Karnataka Electronic System Design and Manufacturing Policy 2013 The state formulated a clear-cut policy that listed the objectives, route map, policy concessions, infrastructure support, brand building and training way back in 2013. The key objective of the policy was to enable the state to

Electronics Hardware contribute to 10 percent of the `26.6 lakh crore ($400 billion approximately) revenue envisaged for the electronics hardware manufacturing sector by 2020. The state also targeted a 20 percent share of national exports pegged at `5.3 lakh crore ($79.6 billion approximately) by 2020. The policy also targeted creation of 2.4 lakh new jobs in the sector. It envisaged that a quarter of India’s PhDs and 5,000 patent filings would come from the state in the electronics hardware manufacturing space. The policy framework created an environment that would make Karnataka emerge as the most preferred destination for investments in the Electronic System Design and Manufacturing (ESDM) area. The state policy covers the following areas of electronics design and manufacturing: Embedded software for IT, Telecommunications, Defence, Medical, Industrial, Automotive, Consumer Products, Applications and Components, parts and accessories. The state has created a category called ‘Karnataka ESDM Companies’ which qualify for special concessions and sops. To qualify under this tag, a company has to be registered in the state, should be engaged in electronics hardware manufacturing, should achieve a minimum of 30 percent domestic value addition for any specific product, and should employ at least 50 percent of its workforce from Karnataka. In line with the Government of India policy, these companies will be given Preferential Market Access for ESDM products procured by all state government departments.

Infrastructure support In order to achieve its target, the state government has also rolled out a series of initiatives ranging from infrastructure development, branding and training, fiscal measures, capital subsidies and other capacity building measures. All these steps are geared to make the state a preferred location for electronics hardware manufacturing. 64

ESDM innovation centres: Karnataka has proposed setting up three ESDM innovation centres that will provide complete infrastructure to entrepreneurs and companies who want to take their product concept and implement a working prototype. Such innovation centres will have all the requisite facilities such as VLSI design tools, prototype development facilities, testing facilities, characterisation labs, compliance and certification labs, along with the requisite manpower and component stocks. The first such centre is to be set up at IIIT-Bengaluru, with subsequent centres coming up in other parts of the state. Hardware Parks: A dedicated Hardware Park near Kempegowda International Airport and a dedicated area for electronics hardware units in the IT Investment Region are on the anvil. The policy has also provided an impetus to full-fledged testing centres and for the development of solar farms. Electronics hardware manufacturing hubs: It is proposed to set up seven ESDM Manufacturing Clusters (EMC) in the state by 2020 on a PPP model. These EMCs are to provide internal and external infrastructure, inclusive of advanced logistics, shared testing and training facilities. The state will provide funding support of upto 20 percent of the total infrastructure cost. The EMCs will be designed based on the latest international standards of town and country planning, and will be environment-friendly with a proper segregated disposal mechanism and landscaped lung space. The hubs have been planned in different corridors across the state. While the hub for semiconductors, alternative/solar energy, aerospace, medical electronics and embedded systems is to come up in the Bengaluru–Tumakuru belt, the one for manufacture of electronics components, plastics, metal fabrication and electronics manufacturing services has been planned for west Karnataka, in the Shivamogga-Hassan belt. In North Karnataka (Hubbali-Dharwad corridor), the plan is to establish a

Electronics Hardware base for automotive electronics, high-tech machining and hightech tooling, and a manufacturing base for medical electronics and computer peripherals in the Mysuru-Nanjangud corridor of the old Mysore region. Transport: The state government will take the necessary measures to increase the number of trains and aircraft operating to and from major cities of Karnataka to facilitate better movement of goods and passengers. The plan includes the development of complementary infrastructure such as roads, railways, etc., to ensure proper connectivity between the cluster and the nearest airport, seaport or railway stations.

Karnataka Semiconductor Venture Capital Fund To boost the creation of Fables Design companies and semiconductor IP, which is a core need for the ESDM sector, the state government launched an investment vehicle in fiscal year 2014-15. Called Karnataka Semiconductor Venture Capital Fund (KARSEMVEN Fund), it has a total fund size of `96.15 crore ($14.4 million approximately). The fund had achieved an initial closing of `50 crore ($7.5 million approximately) in the year of launch. It has reportedly invested in two companies, namely Graphene Semiconductor Services and Prodigy Technovations. The fund’s mandate is to provide funding to Karnataka ESDM companies for their start-up, growth and debt/working capital needs over the next seven years. This fund will work closely with the ICT Innovation Fund and will be jointly funded by the Government of Karnataka, Government of India and other publicprivate financial institutions. The Government of Karnataka's contribution shall be limited to 26 percent of the fund size. The main investment objective of the fund is to promote Karnataka as a semiconductor design hub. Nearly 70 percent of

the country’s chip designers work here and around 80 percent of the sector’s revenues in design are from Bengaluru alone. The target is also to attract investments in high-tech semiconductor manufacturing and promote generation and use of green energy – specifically solar energy.

Marketing Brand Karnataka globally As part of its efforts of making Karnataka the most preferred location for investments in the electronics hardware space, the state is also working on marketing efforts to attract global investors. As part of the brand building initiatives, the state has proposed to work with the central Ministry of External Affairs to conduct road shows for ambassadors of various countries in New Delhi, sign MoUs with identified sister cities in other countries, and engage with the top 50 ESDM companies in the world to proactively invite investments into the state. Incentives for ESDM companies expanding globally: In order to assist Karnataka's ESDM companies in their international market expansion plans, the state is offering reimbursements of 50 percent of the actual costs (including travel) incurred in international marketing, sales promotion, trade show participation, webinars, market research and other similar activities. This reimbursement will be subject to a maximum of `10 lakh ($15 thousand approximately) per year per company.

Financial incentives §§ Capital subsidy: Karnataka will provide up to 10 percent capital subsidy or `5 crore ($751 thousand approximately), whichever is lower, to Karnataka ESDM companies (both for ESDM manufacturing as well as R&D units). It will be given to the first two anchor units in each Greenfield Cluster. §§ Export incentives: In order to be competitive in the global markets and enable ESDM companies’ forays abroad for Make in Karnataka |

exports, the state has proposed a duty drawback scheme in respect of state taxes that do not get refunded to the exporting units in the normal course. §§ Deemed export incentives (for domestic sales): For sales within Karnataka, the ESDM units will be eligible for an incentive in the form of an interest-free loan against the eligible gross VAT under the Industrial Policy 2009 – 14. For domestic sales outside Karnataka (inter-state sales), the state will reimburse 95 percent of central sales tax, till GST is implemented, paid by the eligible units during the first five years of operations.

The best innovations in the sector will be selected by the Screening Committee, comprising industry and academia representatives. Incentives for Patents and IPR: According to the ESDM policy statement, high-value-added manufacturing requires the creation of IPR, which needs to be protected in the form of patents, both in India as well as abroad. The state government is actively encouraging this so that Karnataka becomes a leader in IPR and knowledge economy, which in turn will result in significant commercial success. The target is to file 3,000 domestic and 2,000 international patents by Karnataka ESDM companies by 2020. The government will reimburse up to 50 percent of the actual costs (including filing fees, attorney fees, search fees and maintenance fees) with a maximum of `1 lakh ($1,500 approximately) for filing a domestic patent and up to `5 lakh ($7,500 approximately) for filing an international patent. This reimbursement is payable 75 percent after the patent is filed, with the balance being released after the patent has been granted. These incentives are additional to any existing national scheme.

Promoting innovation and incentivising research

R&D grant: Similarly, to encourage R&D investments in ESDM and create a culture of innovation and IPR, the state government will award grants in the form of reimbursement equalling up to 20 percent of the actual R&D expenses (including manpower costs) incurred annually by Karnataka ESDM companies, subject to a maximum of 2 percent of their annual turnover. The R&D grant shall be subject to a maximum of `1 lakh ($1,500 approximately) per company per year and will be in addition to any similar benefits announced by the Government of India.

The most critical part of the EDSM space is that it is very knowledge intensive. So, the government has decided to create an environment conducive for innovation and invention by way of awarding grants and protecting intellectual property.

With a slew of incentives offered by the state government, Karnataka is set to build upon its advantages and surge ahead in the electronics hardware sector.

The industry in India has about a thousand units in the production of machine tools, accessories/attachments, subsystems and parts. Of these, around 25 operate on a large scale and account for about 70 percent of the turnover. The rest are in the MSME sector. Approximately 75 percent of the Indian machine tool producers are ISO-certified. Nearly 200 precision tool manufacturers are operational in the organised sector. The large organised players cater to India’s heavy and medium industries, while the smallscale sector meets the demand of ancillary and other units. Many machine tool manufacturers have also obtained CE Marking certification, in keeping with the requirements of the European markets. There are more than a hundred private sector units, situated mostly in Delhi, Coimbatore, Ludhiana, Pune, Bengaluru, Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai, Satara and Amritsar.

With the demand from the capital goods sector (especially automobile and textile industries) projected to remain high, precision tools have a growth opportunity in the near future. The sector is known for higher productivity, superior precision and accuracy, and low-cost manufacturing solutions. Experts foresee a growing demand for CNC (computer numerical controlled) precision tools. However, the industry lacks design and engineering capability to take up high precision CNC work. This is mainly due to technology gaps in metal cutting and metal forming tools. To bridge this gap, both the government and private players are putting together a host of R&D initiatives and importing relevant technology. The range of precision tools now being manufactured in India covers items such as lathes, drilling machines, gear bobbers and gear shapers, boring machines, clothing machines, unit head power hammers, mechanical and hydraulic presses, welding machines, furnaces, rolling mills, and more. India’s first integrated machines tool park is to be set up in Tumakuru in Karnataka across 300 acres by the Indian Precision

Karnataka is among the top three performers when it comes to heavy engineering, which is also the fastest growing sector in the state.

Tools Manufacturing Association. The state government is keen to develop a Free Trade Warehousing Zone (FTWZ) for the engineering sector through the PPP model. A joint establishment of the Advanced Machine Tool Testing Facility, a state-of-the-art equipment facility at the Central Manufacturing Technology Institute by precision tool industry, Government of India and Department of Industrial Policy and Promotions has been instrumental in harnessing and developing the sector in Karnataka. About 28 percent of the precision tools companies in India is located in Karnataka, with Bengaluru as the base. Maharashtra is the next major centre, and the other hubs are New Delhi, Tamil Nadu, Punjab, Andhra Pradesh, Haryana and Gujarat. With a proposed precision tool park in Vasanthanarasapura, and several units in Peenya Industrial Estate, Bommasandra Industrial Estate in Bengaluru and more in Belagavi, Karnataka is the number one state when it comes to precision tools manufacturing. The industry caters to the engineering, watch, electronic, automobile and aerospace industries, with aerospace occupying a major chunk. Some of the leading players in the state are Goodrich, Titan, Nasmyth India and Dynamic Technologies. Such incentives are bound to ensure that Karnataka consolidates its position as a leader in the sector of heavy engineering and the sub-sector of precision tools. Make in Karnataka |

Manufacturing & Startups The launch of the Make in India initiative in 2014 and the National Manufacturing Policy gave a much-needed fillip to the manufacturing sector, which had stagnated after the global slowdown of 2007-08. Attracted by the incentives offered, more and more manufacturing giants are lining up to ‘sell anywhere, but make in India’. The Government of India received proposals of more than `1.2 lakh crore ($18 billion approximately) and companies such as GE, Siemens, HTC, Toshiba, Alstom, Foxconn and others are setting up manufacturing plants in the country. The manufacturing sector grew at a staggering rate of 9.3 percent in 2016, which drove the GDP growth rate to a record high of 7.6 percent. According to a report by the United Nations, India is projected to grow at a rate of 7.7 percent in 2017, making it the fastest growing large developing economy. The Make in India campaign has also attracted hardware-based technology startups. The government announced the Startup India campaign and the Startup Action Plan in 2015, which aim to

encourage startups in areas other than software. According to the startup analytics firm Tracxn, 207 hardware-based startups were founded in India in 2014-15, and total funding in hardware-led startups added up to `953.6 crore ($143.3 million approximately) in that period. Karnataka has been a benchmark for manufacturing and industrial activity in the country. While the public sector thrived here in the immediate post-Independence years, small and medium industrial units contributed significantly to the GSDP in the subsequent years. The sector was hit by the global slowdown and has since been on a path to recovery, contributing 14.6 percent to the GSDP in 2016. At the Invest Karnataka Meet in February 2016, the state bagged proposals worth `1.3 lakh crore ($19.5 billion approximately). At the Make in India Week held in Mumbai later that month, Karnataka received investment commitments worth `10,000 crore ($1.5 billion approximately), including a proposal from French company Tar Kovacs Systems Group, to establish an ocean-based renewable energy project. Other major proposals included Global Mode & Accessories, who proposed to set up a garment manufacturing unit, and one by First Solar to manufacture solar cells. A slew of government policies had played a defining role in orchestrating the state’s resurgence as a force to be reckoned with in the manufacturing sector. Karnataka has ambitious plans in play for the sector to grow at 12 percent CAGR over the next decade and regain its ranking of the 1980s and 1990s.

The Karnataka Manufacturing Taskforce (MTF) was set up in 2013 to develop a vision and strategise the growth of the sector. The MTF submitted its report later that year and recommended steps to boost manufacturing that would make Karnataka a preferred destination for Indian and international investors. It believes that Karnataka has all the necessary fundamentals in place - economic, political, resources and skills that are needed to

Manufacturing & Startups Most of the above recommendations were accepted in the Karnataka Industrial Policy 2014-19 (KIP 2014 – 2019), which has the following objectives: §§ To maintain an industrial growth rate of 12 percent per year §§ To enhance the contribution of the manufacturing sector to the GSDP from the present level of 16.87 percent to 20 percent by the end of the policy period §§ To attract investment of `5 lakh crore ($75.2 billion approximately) §§ To create 15 lakh employment opportunities Source: Grant Thornton & Assocham: Startups India: An Overview, 2016

convert it into a manufacturing powerhouse within a decade.

MTF’s suggestions The recommendations suggested by MTF had three basic objectives: §§ Raise the manufacturing sector’s share of the GSDP to 25 percent by 2025 from 17.9 percent recorded in 2012 §§ Create 1.5 crore incremental employment within the stipulated period §§ Ensure balanced and inclusive growth across Karnataka Essentially, achieving this would require a CAGR of 12 percent every year till 2025, as against a CAGR of 7.8 percent noted between 2005 and 2012. The MTF had also forecast that the manufacturing sector would invest about `12.5 lakh crore ($188 billion approximately) and generate output worth `3.75 lakh crore ($56.4 billion approximately) by 2025. This would conservatively add around `2.5 lakh crore ($37.6 billion approximately) to the state exchequer through taxes till 2025, besides providing for a host of other secondary benefits.

§§ To create an environment to enhance ease of doing business in the state To pave the way for such optimistic, forward-looking projections, a number of reforms concerning large-scale, medium-scale, and small-scale enterprises across various industrial sectors have been announced. National Investment and Manufacturing Zones (NIMZs) will be developed, which are likely to fulfill the critical need of moving manufacturing bases away from Bengaluru, incentivising industry to set up new units, encouraging small and medium-scale enterprises (SMEs), and granting financial concessions to very large projects. The policy has been formulated to boost industrial growth rates and revenues as well as make the cost of living for labour affordable, thereby improving the standards of living in the state in the long run. Within this period of five years (2014-2019), the policy has sought to bring about sweeping changes across different sectors in the manufacturing sector. Besides aligning with the recommendations of the Karnataka Manufacturing Taskforce 2025, the policy has also been aligned with the objectives and goals of the National Manufacturing Policy (NMP). The explicit objective of the NMP was accelerated development, inclusive growth and provision of gainful Make in Karnataka |


Manufacturing & Startups employment. The NMP aims at increasing the share of manufacturing in the GDP to 25 percent by 2025 and creating 100 million jobs.

Development of NIMZs To begin with, Tumakuru, Bidar, Kolar and Kalaburagi districts have been chosen as locations for NIMZs. This involves setting up integrated industrial townships with state-of-the-art infrastructure, skills development facilities and land-use plans based on zoning. The NIMZs are to be developed through Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) according to the guidelines of the NMP. The state government would support these SPVs through equity participation, but the economic support input had a ceiling of `500 crore ($75.2 million approximately) per NIMZ. Small and large manufacturers would operate together in NIMZs. This setup would allow for easy collaboration between businesses within a strong value chain, help reduce costs and lead time, achieve economies of scale and encourage technology transfer. To decongest Bengaluru and promote other areas through industrial development, potential areas are to be selected as Special Investment Regions (SIRs). Mysuru, Mangaluru, Hassan, Bagalkote, Vijayapura, Raichur, Koppal and Ballari are to be developed as industrial nodes. Industry observers believe that creating townships alongside these centres is likely to help in checking the unbridled rise in land prices.

Incentivising new enterprises One of the remedial measures suggested by most industry and trade bodies has been to make the business environment in the state friendlier to entrepreneurs. Karnataka is no stranger to new enterprises, being the breeding ground of the IT revolution in the country. An existing IT ecosystem encouraged the development of software and tech startups, which earned Bengaluru the moniker 76

of startup capital of India; the city ranked 15th among the top 20 locations in the world to launch a startup by the Global Startup Ecosystem Ranking System. The government aims to encourage entrepreneurs to look beyond software and focus on other product sectors. The Karnataka Industrial Policy has sought to incentivise new industrial units, cut the industry application fees by 50 percent and make the Single Window Clearance Mechanism more effective to improve ease of doing business. A comprehensive study for the simplification of regulatory procedures will be done by the government to reduce time and cost of compliance with bureaucratic procedures for industrial investments. All regulatory and statutory approvals required for project clearances are to be covered in the study. Along with this, the state has introduced a Startup Policy in 2016 with the specific aim to create at least 6,000 product startups and stimulate growth of 20,000 technology startups. The state plans to do this through the following mechanisms: §§ Setting up a fund of funds: The government plans to mobilise a `2,000 crore ($300 million approximately) Fund

Manufacturing & Startups

Another startup, MangoMan Consumer Electronics makes Teewe, an HDMI dongle. Ezetap makes card readers that enable a smartphone to become a mobile point of sale solution.

of Funds, which effectively means that the government will invest in venture funds which, in turn, will invest in startups. There is a provision to disburse a part of this Fund of Funds during the angel stage itself. An investment committee that will include government officials, and industry and academic experts with sector-specific domain knowledge will be set up to decide such investment. §§ Technology for social good: The government aims to facilitate the generation of 25 innovative technology solutions with an impact on sectors like healthcare, food security, clean environment and universal education, among other objectives. Ideally, it would like funded startups to provide workable and scalable solutions to some of the challenges the government faces. The government has even planned to incentivise its approach by identifying five challenges each year, and the winners will automatically be eligible to utilise the incubation space that the government will be facilitating in various ways. The identification of the challenges will be decided by a panel consisting of representatives of government,

subject specialists and non-governmental organisations. §§ New Age Incubation Network (NAIN): A NAIN is to be created involving engineering colleges, professional and postgraduate institutions in tier-2 cities in a phased manner. The aim is to set up incubators in at least 50 academic institutions, wherein students would take up projects. Performance levels would be rewarded by way of grants for supporting operational expenses, as well as annual financial support of `3 lakh ($4,500 approximately) per project. The students would also have the added incentive of interning with some of the startup companies. §§ Startup Cell: To help entrepreneurs wade through the maze of administrative matters relating to the setting up of a startup, the government has started a Startup Cell which will assist them in registration as per the norms of The Factories Act, The Maternity Benefit Act, The Karnataka Shops and Commercial Establishments Act, the Contract Labour (Regulations and Abolition) Act, The Payment of Wages Act, the Minimum Wages Act, and the Employment Exchanges (Compulsory Notification of Vacancies) Act, as well as the law governing the safety of women employed by startups working in the night.

Manufacturing & Startups The government introduced a ‘Startup Booster Kit’ in 2016, which is a collection of necessary software tools and services, such as cloud, virtual telephony, debugging and online payment, available at a special price tailor-made to cater to the needs of young startups. The government has partnered with IBM, Amazon, Microsoft, Ozonetel, Airtel, Vodafone, CanvasFlip, HeadSpin and other tech giants to provide these services. The startup cell witnessed a record 600 registrations within a week of the announcement of the booster kit.

Encouraging SMEs SMEs have a huge impact on socio-economic development. SMEs contribute 8 percent to the country’s GDP, 45 percent to the manufacturing sector, and 40 percent to exports. They provide employment to over 80 million youth. As an acknowledgement of this critical segment of industrial activity, the KIP has set aside a minimum of 20 percent of allocable land to develop SMEs. The state is reported to have a land bank of 40,000 acres. It has proposed to develop Rural Industrial Areas exclusively for SMEs in industrial corridors. Infrastructure facilities like road connectivity, drainage system, street lighting and water supply systems are also to be developed. To make it easier for SMEs to kick-start operations, the KIP has proposed to create a venture capital fund to support startup enterprises, especially in the micro and small sectors. It has proposed to set up angel funding schemes to encourage firstgeneration entrepreneurs to set up micro and small industries in the state, based on innovative ideas. The government has decided to incentivise commercial and rural banks to provide easy loans to small industries under their clusterbased approach. Quality-improvement interventions by SMEs - like upgrading existing technologies and installing new technologies for quality control, cleaner and environment-friendly production, quality 78

testing and fee paid for quality certifications - are eligible for a onetime subsidy through reimbursement of actual costs. Technology development centres are to be set up in each of the four NIMZs; they will help in passing on technical knowhow to the micro and small industries. The state will offer aid to SMEs to participate in international trade fairs/exhibitions and give support to market themselves on international platforms. Government departments have been mandated to make purchases from micro and small enterprises within Karnataka at a price preference of 15 percent against the products of large and medium players. Finally, to make operations easy and hassle-free, the state has evolved a mechanism to reduce inspections of SMEs by various departments and push for self-certification. Alongside these, the procedure for submission of returns under various labour laws is expected to be streamlined further, with improved coordination

Manufacturing & Startups between the Labour Department and SMEs.

Financial concessions for large players Provisions have been made for certain financial incentives and concessions for large, mega, ultra-mega and super-mega enterprises. Some noteworthy ones are given below: §§ Exemption from stamp duty and concessional registration charges. §§ Reimbursement of land-conversion fee and exemption from Entry Tax. §§ Interest-free loan to large, mega, ultra-mega and super-mega enterprises on net VAT and CST. In the past, Karnataka has spearheaded the growth of industries, particularly in the areas of electrical and electronics, information & communication technology (ICT), biotechnology, and, more recently, nanotechnology. It has also been home to a robust aerospace industry with a significant number of ancillary units feeding into the large sector. This has been made possible by the industrial structure of the state that allows for the coexistence of modern hightech capital goods and knowledge-intensive industries with traditional consumer goods industries – both characterised by the presence of major multi-billion-dollar MNCs and large Indian conglomerates, both private and public.
