The Karnataka Small Scale Industries Association (Kassia) has called for speedy implementation of the new industrial policy.

The association, in a memorandum to the chief minister, has also sought issuance of a notification on abolition of trade licences.

Terming the government's move to allot land on 99 years lease as a retrograde step, particularly to small scale industries, it has urged the government to allot land below three acres only to micro and small industries under 10 years lease-cum-sale basis and exempt from 99 years lease.
