State was top FDI recipient in Q1 at 48%

Karnataka attracted over ₹62,000 crore in April-June, says Nirani

Karnataka attracted Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) to the tune of ₹62,085 crore in the first quarter of fiscal 2022, capturing 48% of the total such investments received by the country during the period, said Large and Medium Industries Minister Murugesh Nirani here on Wednesday.

“Karnataka became a top recipient of FDIs in India in April-June. The State received ₹30,746 crore in FDIs in the whole of 2019-20 fiscal and was third in 2020-21 by attracting ₹56,884 crore,” the Minister stated.

Mr. Nirani said the Karnataka Udyoga Mitra, a single-window outfit for investments, has emerged as the country’s top investment promotion agency. “Its role in providing clear information to investors was very crucial. We have removed hurdles for investors by easing many policies,” he added.

Notices to allottees

Addressing presspersons, Mr. Nirani said the department was planning to issue notices to the beneficiaries who had been allotted KIADB land for something but utilised them for something else.

“There have been many complaints that land has been kept vacant,” he added.
