He said that Manguluru was identified as the next IT cluster as part of the ‘Beyond Bangaluru’ policy in the state. He also said that Mangaluru will be the next startup hub after Bangaluru, as a part of the It cluster, which will also include districts of Udupi, Dakshina Kannada, Kodagu and Uttar Kannada. This policy plans to focus on Mysuru, Belgavi and Shivammoga  with an aim to decongest Bangaluru.

The state plans to develop the city into an IT hub as Mangaluru already has Infosys software development park in the port city, Manipal Institute of Technology near Udupi and state-run National Institute of Technology (NIT) at Surathkal near Mangaluru. He said the state is taking steps to set up an Electronic System and Design Management (ESDM) centre in this city along with Central Instrumentation Facility to attract investments and generate hundreds of jobs. The state government has also set up the Karnataka Digital Economy Mission (KDEM) to promote digital growth, attract investments and innovation in science and technology in the state. 

The mission will work to increase the contribution of the digital economy to the gross state domestic product (GSDP) by 30 percent and create 30-lakh jobs across the state over the next 5 years. Ruling BJP’s state unit president and Lok Sabha member from Mangaluru Nalin Kumar Kateel, who presided over the conclave, said that the flourishing of the IT sector will increase job opportunities and add to the economy. He also emphasised that as the economy develops, the culture and heritage of the region should also be protected.
