Tamil Nadu to promote new technology

The threat of losing out in Manufacturing Industries to Maharashtra, Gujarat besides some north Indian states like Haryana, National capital region and Western Uttar Pradesh has forced the Tamil Nadu government to unleash a slew of initiatives to adopt new technologies and remain competitive in the state.

With the commissioning of the dedicated freight corridor linking Mumbai with Delhi and Ludhiana and Kolkata, coastal states like Tamil Nadu are bound to lose out their distinct advantage of direct connectivity to the international market. Inland states could now reach their export cargo to Ports within a few hours with the commissioning of the dedicated freight corridor by next year.

As part of the new initiatives, the Tamil Nadu CM M K Stalin inaugurated a centre of Excellence (CoE) at the Tamil Nadu Advanced Manufacturing Conclave, in collaboration with Dassault Systems, and also SIPCOT industrial innovation centers at Hosur and Sriperumbudur. He also laid the foundation stone for Tidel Neo Park in Villupuram and Tirupur districts.

The Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation, in association with Dassault Systems, has set up the Tamil Nadu Advanced Manufacturing System Centre at Tidel Park, Chennai.

As India’s first of its kind, this centre will provide a dedicated IT engineering ecosystem to support the MSME sector and students. It will also enable the growth of various industries like aerospace, defense, automotive and electric vehicles, said an official release.

The two Industrial Innovation centers are being established at SIPCOT Parks at a cost of Rs 34 crore to nurture industrial innovation and accelerate adoption in partnership with Coimbatore Innovation and Business Incubator. Each facility is developed with a total built up area of 23,500 sq ft consisting of co-working spaces, meeting and event spaces, innovation labs with equipment and other resources.

TIDEL will set up neo parks in the districts of Tirupur at a cost of Rs 40 crore and Villupuram at a cost of Rs 32 crore...

Mr.Stalin said that introducing advanced technologies and professional 4.0 standards in the production will pave the way for further refining the industrial environment in the state. The government is keen on preparing MSMEs to adapt the technological changes with the government providing advanced technologies to students, professionals and young entrepreneurs.
