The facility will include a cold storage unit and provisions for Customs clearances for both export and import cargo. Currently, industrialists in the Mysuru region obtain Customs clearance at ports, but with this facility, these services will be conveniently available at their doorstep, according to sources.

Software Technology Parks of India

Another project that is ready for inauguration is the Software Technology Parks of India (STPI) building and incubation centre at Hebbal industrial area, near Infosys campus. STPIs have been established at five locations in Karnataka;  Electronics City, Bengaluru and sub-centres in Mysuru, Hubballi, Mangaluru and Manipal.

Built at a cost of Rs. 27.64 crore, the three-storey, 40,000 square feet building offers 110 plug-and-play seats, along with 6,500 square feet of semi-furnished raw space featuring a data centre, server room, and network operation centre for high-speed data communication. It also includes a 100-seater auditorium, conference hall, discussion rooms and a cafeteria.

STPI Mysuru aims to promote software and software services development and export, manage infrastructure resources, and provide statutory and promotional services to exporters. 

Remodelled Ashokapuram Railway Station

The third mega project  to be inaugurated by Ashwini Vaishnaw is the yard remodelling works at Ashokapuram Railway Station. SWR has undertaken these works at an estimated cost of Rs. 30.42 crore.

Provisions have been made for three extra two-platform lines, supplementing the existing three lines and introducing new platforms 4 and 5. Platform 1’s current length will increase by 87.5 metres, and platforms 2 and 3 will extend by 57.5 metres.
