Govt plans Bangalore-Mumbai corridor

Union government plans to implement the proposed 1,000-km-long Bangalore-Mumbai industrial corridor project through the financial assistance of Britain.

The proposed corridor would cover districts of Tumkur, Shimoga, Chitradurga, Haveri, Gadag, Hubli, Dharwad, Belgaum and Bagalkot. A National Investment and Manufacturing Zone (NIMZ) has also been planned in Tumkur as a part of the project.

On June 5, Britain announced that it would jointly finance a feasibility study on the proposed corridor. The Bangalore Chamber of Industry and Commerce (BCIC) proposes the development of the industrial corridor as an alternative to the eight-lane road from Bidar to Chamarajanagar.

BCIC has, further, urged for the development of various sector-specific industrial zones along the corridor.
