The Government of Karnataka (GoK) has adopted the cluster development approach as a key strategy for enhancing the productivity and competitiveness, technology improvement, adoption of best manufacturing practices, skill up-gradation etc. as well as capacity building of Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) as these considered as potential drivers of enterprise development and innovation.
A cluster is a group of enterprises located within an identifiable and as far as practicable, contiguous area and producing same/similar products/services.
The programme will consist of creation of tangible “assets” as Common Facility Centers (CFCs) like Common Production/Processing Centre (for balancing/correcting/improving production line that cannot be undertaken by individual units), Design Centres, Testing Facilities, Training Centre, R & D Centres, Effluent Treatment Plant, Marketing Display/Selling Centre, Common Logistics Centre, Common Raw Material Bank/Sales Depot, etc.
