Pamela Kumar, under secretary to the Government of India, has directed Gaurav Gupta, additional chief secretary of commerce and industries department of Karnataka, to submit the DPR for the Mangaluru Plastic Park project at the earliest.
“I am directed to inform the scheme steering committee (SSC), in its 21st meeting held on January 20 under the chairmanship of secretary, for the scheme for setting up of Plastic Parks considered the proposals for setting up of two new Plastic Parks at various locations in the country and decided to grant in-principle approval to the proposal received from the state of Karnataka for setting up a Plastic Park at Ganjimutt, Mangaluru, Dakshina Kannada under the scheme,” Kumar stated in the letter.
Plastic Parks are very important for realizing the goals of the Make in India programme. As already mentioned in the scheme guidelines, it is mentioned that the in-principle approval is valid for six months. Hence, it is requested that a DPR, complete in all respects, may be submitted to the department at the earliest for expediting the grant of final approval, Kumar said.
“The park will have an ecosystem with state of the art infrastructure building and enabling common facility to consolidate and synergize the capacities of the domestic downstream plastic processing industry,” minister Sadananda Gowda tweeted.
