Infrastructure Development






 Industrial Development Areas/ Plots:


Kerala, comparing with the other states of India, is densely populated one and the land as a whole, is deemed to be scarce for even to provide ample accommodation to its people.  Needless to say that land for Industrial purpose is commonly out of reach for the needy people.  The industrial activities in residential areas or its vicinity attracts protests and disturbance from the other walks of life, as it is portrayed as a menace for habitation and vegetation. On the other hand, in remote areas where at the land, can rather be spared, faces acute deficit of other infrastructure such as Power, transportation facilities etc.  The remedial measures against these hindrances pave the way to Industrial Areas /Plots, generally known as Industrial Estates.


The Director of Industries & Commerce controls 10 Industrial Development Areas, 25 Industrial Development Plots , 2 Coir Parks and one functional Industrial  Estate, situated all the Districts except Wayanad, of which the total area comes to  about 2400 acres and accommodates 2500 odd industrial  units as tabulated here.


The  allotment of land  in the  DA/DPs are now on lease basis and is guided  by the Rules promulgated under GO(MS) No. 60/2013/ID dated: 10.06.2013, GO(MS) No. 110/2013/ID dated: 13.09.2013 and GO(MS) No. 17/2016/ID dated: 30.01.2016.


District Level Land Related Orders:   

All land related orders are being published under respective micro sites- District Industries Centres – Infrastructure- Orders & Circulars. 


Multi Storied Industrial Estate:  

The need to accommodate more units  in a minimum area of land  has reached at Multi storied Industrial  Estate ( Standard Design Factories  (SDFs)). The Standard Design Factories are aimed to  construct in DAs/DPs to provide entrepreneurs on rental.  The projects of this kind implemented / under implementation  are tabulated here.  


Standard Design Factories Under  PPP Mode :

Since shortage of land continues to be a  major hurdle for Industrial development, Government have initiated to sponsor a PPP scheme in collaboration with the Local Self Governments. Under this scheme, SDFs will construct in the industrial lands owned by  LSGs.
