Mangaluru, Jun 10: The state government is in the process of setting up industrial township authority under The Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act 1976, said Dakshina Kannada district in charge minister, U T Khader.

Addressing the media here on Monday, June 10, U T Khader said,"the government has decided to ammend this act for the benefit of industries. Till now, the local bodies used to collect taxes from these industries in order to provide basic amenities to them, but there were lot of constraints and industries were found cribbing about not meeting their demands. In order to sort out this issue, the government will form industrial township authority for which a meeting will be held soon by urban development department, he explained.

"The industrial township authority will be an autonomous body and they will collect the taxes and provide basic amenities required to these industries. This autonomous body consists of 8 members including five industry members, one member from industry and commerce department, one from urban development department and one from local body which will be appointed by the government, said U T Khader.

"The highway meeting which was supposed to be held two days back had to be postponed due to the transfer of its engineers, soon after a new official and engineer is appointed the meeting will be conducted with MP to resolve the problems of highway," Khader state d.

He also said,"We condemn the attack on Congress representative at Malpe, under the joint investigation undertaken by Udupi and Dakshina Kannada police. The culprit was arrested for which I congratulate the police personnel," he added.

"We have held discussions with section officers, nodal officers and local bodies and advised them to be alert for this monsoon. A strong message has been spread, asking them to stay alert in view of emergency situations arising during monsoon season," said Khader.
