But we need information on what infrastructure facilities these cities need,” Mr Kumaraswamy told the vision group, asking its members to provide the necessary inputs and support the  government needed to create a favourable environment for establishment of industries  in tier-2 cities. 

 

In response, the vision group members said they would  submit a report after an indepth study .  Also present at the meeting were  Additional Secretary to the Chief Minister, Ramana Reddy, Principal Secretary to the Industries and Commerce department, Gaurav Gupta and Industry department officials.
