The medical devices park is proposed to come up at Oragadam in Kancheepuram district in an area of 350 acres.
The proposed cost for developing this project is Rs 430 crore. These parks will have common and advanced infrastructure facilities like CETP, steam systems, warehousing & cold storage, R&D centre, testing facilities etc.
The State will provide an attractive package of incentives to industries which will invest in these parks.
According to sources in the government, the State government has become the favourite destination for automobile and electronic companies.
However, it is yet to attract pharmaceutical and medical devices companies. The latest proposal by the government is to develop a proper ecosystem for pharma industry in the State.
The State government has applied for financial assistance from the Centre for the bulk drug park under Promotion of Bulk Drugs Park Scheme.
