Karnataka State Small Industries Development Corporation Limited(KSSIDC) is a Karnataka State Govt. undertaking established under the Companies Act 1956, on 29-04-1960. It has completed more than 50 years and has celebrated its Golden Jubilee function on 23-12-2014.The Corporation is developing Industrial Estates in various parts of the State with all basic infrastructure facilities to enable establishment of small scale industrial units by the entrepreneurs thereby giving impetus for job creation. KSSIDC constructs various types of Sheds in these Industrial Estates and also forms various sizes of Plots with all the basic amenities, so that entrepreneurs may construct sheds of their choice and size. These sheds and plots are allotted to the needy SSI entrepreneurs in a transparent manner.
