Declaring Gaddapotharam, Bonthapally & Gundlamachnoor areas as Notified Industrial Areas

President, Model Industrial Association, Hyderabad and President, Bulk Drug Manufacturers Association (BDMA) have submitted  representations for declaration of Gaddapotharam (Kazipally), Bonthapally & Gundlamachnoor industrial areas as the notified industrial areas, informing that the members of their associations  have set-up Chemical and Pharma industries in five industrial pockets in the area viz. Khazipally-Gaddapotharam, Bonthapally, Bonthapally-Domadugu, Borapatla and Gundlamachnoor, way back in 1990s after getting all the required permissions and approvals including Consent for Operations (CFO).  He has requested the Government for notifying the said locations as industrial areas so as to facilitate the industries to avail various benefits being announced by the Central Government under the Industrial Infrastructure Up-gradation Scheme (IIUS) and also incentives announced, from time to time, by the State Government, as these areas have immense potential to develop further as a major manufacturing hub for pharmaceuticals and related chemical products.

It is further be noted that Andhra Pradesh, particularly Hyderabad, has emerged as a major player in the Bulk Drug Industry sector. There are about 266 bulk drug manufacturing companies in Andhra Pradesh, of which 90 per cent are located around Hyderabad. Hyderabad is contributing about 35% of the country’s bulk drug production and has been labeled as Bulk Drug capital of India. The Commerce Secretary, Government of India, in the reference 5th cited has stated that the share in export of bulk drugs and pharmaceuticals from the state of Andhra Pradesh is about 30% of the total exports from the country and recommended for expansion of the existing units subject to compliance of Andhra Pradesh Pollution Control Board norms in order to give further boost to the exports from this sector.

Government permitted the existing Bulk Drug and Bulk Drug intermediates manufacturing units only subject to the installations of Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) facilities by such units to go for expansion duly complying with all extant environmental and other norms.

The matter was carefully examined by an expert committee constituted by the Commissioner of Industries which submitted its recommendations vide the reference . Based on their recommendations the Commissioner of Industries has submitted his recommendations vide the reference

The Government after careful examination of the matter and in view of the recommendations of the Commissioner of Industries, A.P., Hyderabad and under various provisions of the Industrial Investment Promotion Policy 2010-15 (IIPP 2010-15),  hereby  decided to notify the following areas as Notified Industries Areas, as these areas are already located within  Manufacturing Zones as notified in the master plan of Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority and more than 140  industries are operating in these areas with all the required clearances including Consent for operations (CFO).
