Department for promotion of Industry & Internal Trade has developed Industrial Information System (IIS) portal, a GIS-enabled database of industrial areas/clusters across the country to adopt a committed approach towards resource optimization, industrial upgradation and sustainability. The portal serves as a one-stop solution to the free and easy accessibility of all industrial information including availability of raw material – agriculture, horticulture, minerals, natural resources; distance from key logistic nodes; layers of terrain and urban infrastructure. At present, the database covers more than 3,350 parks/clusters covering about 475,000 hectareland across 31 States/UTs. The initiative is being supported by Invest India, the national investment promotion & facilitation agency, National Center of Geo-Informatics (NCoG), National e-Governance Division (NeGD), Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology and Bhaskaracharya Institute for Space Applications and Geo-Informatics (BISAG).
Industrial Information System (IIS) aims to provide: (i) Information on available land for prospective investors looking at setting up units in the Country (ii) GIS Mapping of Industrial Clusters (iii) The system also holds the information about the existing External and Internal Infrastructure such as rail, road, air and port connectivity and other common facilities in and around the manufacturing clusters (iv) Links to State GIS Portals and State Land Banks
