Glass manufacturing company interested to invest Rs 2,527 crore in Mangaluru


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Jul 23: New Delhi-based Gold Plus Glass Industry Co Ltd has shown interest in investing Rs 2,527 crore in the city for setting up a glass manufacturing unit here. If the discussions fructify and the industry becomes a reality, about 500 people are expected to get employment.

The high level committee chaired by chief minister B S Yediyurappa, recently cleared ten new projects with an investment of Rs 13,487 crore. The glass manufacturing unit in the city is one among them.

Gold Plus Glass Industry Ltd that has been functioning for the last 34 years, has a capacity of producing 1,250 metric tonnes of glass every day. It manufactures float glass, architectural glass, automotive glass, industrial glass, music glass, acoustic glass etc. 

The company has preferred the city for its operations as silica ore that is needed for glass manufacture is available in the coastal belt and some other parts of the city and Kerala. It needs 200 acres of land for its facility and the company has requested the government to allot land near NMPT as it would be easier for dispatching glass to the country and abroad. But it is difficult to get that much land in the city. Therefore, the chances of providing land in other parts of the district are under consideration.

Gokuldas Nayak, joint director of district industries centre here, said that only preliminary preparations are underway and other processes are yet to be undertaken.

    Mangalore having an International Sea Port ideally should have had many industries near by Mangalore district. But how may are existing now? this brings a major responsibility on its local population to put pressure on MP, MLAS, Govt officials. Our people are busy in cow , religion politics ,mandir masjid, and then suffer for employment and run to Bangalore, Mumbai , Gujrat for Jobs. When will public wake up God knows.

    why 200 acres for glass manufacturing. These companies acquire more land than required.

    IT industry or automakers aren't green industry in any sense. Who told you that?. Both industry requirements are high power consumption and high resources

    Doesn’t look like it’s practical to have a glass manufacturing in Mangalore considering water requirement , issue of effluent disposal and communal mindset of certain radical groups operating in Dakshina Kannada.

    Coastal region of Karnataka has been grossly neglected, since independence.. The educated youths are forced to flee to other cities n across continents.. The state must encourage entrepreneurs, provide them with infrastructures, to develop this region... This will possibly stop mass migration and help in changing the demographic ambient of Mangaluru city !!!

    Mangalore should be a big industrial city with high GDP and lot of jobs. Mangalore should focus on waterfront infrastructure development, like Roads, parks, skyscrapers, hotels, restaurants near River, backwaters, sea

    Although the final material called the glass, is 100% recyclable and can be used to yield new glass but some environmental organizations and rules, such as the federal Clean Air Act, are not so content with the way it is made. Upon the glass manufacture process, air-polluting compounds like nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide and particulates are previously proved to be released. These are of a great health concern since the particles of metals, chemicals, acids and dust are so tiny (10 micrometers or even smaller) that they are able to enter the nose and throat and reach the lungs, where they produce damage to the body

    Glass manufacturing company is threat to environment , Mangalore environment already has many threats from our political greed, MRPL, adani power plant, ONGC Mangalore Petrochemicals Ltd and concrete roads, and Glass company needs sand to manufacture sand, and sand is easily available in Mangalore.

    "Glass manufacturing company interested to invest Rs 2,527 crore in Mangaluru"...Yes the company investing money to make profit for sure as the sand is available in abundance in coastal region. The proposed 500 jobs will be for people from Orissa or Assam for sure (as they have fire in the belly much more than Mangalorean's). I do not blame the factory people, because they have to earn money from their investment. Do our Mangalorean's are ready to work like them....!!!!???? If our people were working like them, there wont be so many migrant workers from Orissa and also from Assam. This is not only limited to our Karnataka but also other states of South like Tamilnadu (Which I have seen and experienced).

    Suzlon went out of Karnataka because of poor infrastructure reason, I am sure this new Industry even if it comes would find it difficult to find good land and road connectivity between ports, Mr. Nalin Kumar Ji or Who ever is concerned in this state first please proper world class connectivity to Air and Sea Ports, Mangalore is Majorly missing that. In future Mangalore would need one more Airport for Cargo also NMPT should be upgraded for better access and connectivity. At least a separate Cargo Vehicle only road. Mangalore also has the potential to hoist a 2 wheeler EV manufacturing unit, May be 2nd OLA factory. Or battery manufacturing unit for EV.

    It is difficult to transport end product to Mangalore due to curvy roads etc. Water problem will arise to the company and local people. Better use Muchur land for IT industry
