The Chennai-Bangalore Industrial Corridor Project is an upcoming mega infrastructure project of Government of India. The corridor plans to come up along Chennai, Sriperumbudur, Ponnapanthangal, Ranipet, Chittoor, Bangarupalem, Palamaner, Bangarpet, Hoskote and Bangalore. It is expected to boost commerce between south India and east Asia by enabling quicker movement of goods from these places to the Chennai and Ennore ports.

Karnataka government has proposed to extend this corridor to Mangalore and reposition this corridor as a West seaport to East Seaport connectivity corridor. A new proposal has been put forward where the Corridor will have 2 seaports at the extreme ends and 3 international airports on the way, with Manufacturing industries setup in between. Mangalore has India’s biggest Petrochemical complex, international air cargo facility, international airport, major seaport and located in an area which boasts of having highest literacy rate in India. Mangalore can be major export hub for Japanese companies for exports to countries in Africa and West Asia.

At an interactive session in the City, Baligar said: “We’ve identified and notified about 1,200 acres in Mulbagal to promote granite industry, 800 acres in Kolar for general engineering park  and about 1,200 acres in Hoskote general engineering Industries, along the proposed Bangalore-Chennai corridor to create industrial hubs.”
