Women’s Technology Park
Karnataka government is setting up a 300-acre technology park for women. It will be located at Harohalli, a village in the southern Karnataka. It will serve as a platform for women entrepreneurs so that they can start and run their business ventures on their own. Within the first month of announcement, the state’s ministry of commerce received 56 applications from women who want to set up shops and business outlets. The land will be allotted to them at subsidized rates, while they will be exempted from stamp duty and entry tax.
