On 5th October 2021, the 2nd edition of the Industrial Park Rating System (IPRS) Report was launched by the Union Minister of State for Commerce & Industry, Shri Som Prakash. The IPRS 2.0 Report is expected to enhance India’s industrial competitiveness and attract investment.
As per the IPRS 2.0 report released by Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT),
- 41 Industrial Parks have been assessed as “Leaders”,
- 90 Industrial Parks have been rated as under Challenger category
- 185 have been rated as under “Aspirers”.
These ratings are assigned on the basis of key existing parameters and infrastructure facilities etc. IPRS 2.0 ratings will be instrumental to contribute to India’s growth story and to chart out the path of progress for both the industry and the country.
The Report is an extension of the India Industrial Land Bank which features more than 4,400 industrial parks in a GIS-enabled database to help investors identify their preferred location for investment. The portal is currently integrated with industry-based GIS system of 21 States and UTs and plot-wise information in these are updated on a real-time basis. With this system, the investors can even remotely refer to this report to identify the suitable investable land area, as per the various parameters of infrastructure, connectivity, business support services and environment and safety standards and make informed investment decisions.
The IPRS 2.0 Report is part of the Commerce & Industry Ministry’s AtmaNirbhar Bharat Abhiyan, and comes during the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav festival.
The India Industrial Land Bank (IILB) provides details of more than 5.6 lakh hectares, roughly the size bigger than 30-40 countries, on the click of a button and prospective entrepreneurs can apply sitting from anywhere across the world.
The GIS-enabled IILB acts as a one-stop source of information on Industrial Infrastructure. Significant scaling up in coverage of Industrial Parks on this Land Bank has played a key role in facilitating the IPRS.
The IPRS pilot exercise was launched in 2018, with an objective of enhancing industrial infrastructure competitiveness and supporting policy development for enabling industrialization across the country as the Government pushes ahead a high-growth trajectory with an aim to scale the $5 trillion mark for the Indian economy by 2025.
Based on the learnings from the pilot stage, the Government started the IPRS 2.0 in 2020. All the States of India and 51 SEZs, including 29 Private, have participated the IPRS 2.0 Report. 24 Private Sector Industrial Parks have also been nominated. Ratings have been undertaken for 449 out of 478 nominations received. The feedback survey involved responses from 5,700 tenants.
