Industrial Information System (IIS)


Industrial Information System (IIS)

The Industrial Information System (IIS) is one of the key initiatives of the Department for the promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), Government of India under the Digital India initiative. The key objective of the IIS is to provide a web-based, centralized tool for monitoring and management of Industrial corridors of India and to work as a decision support system for various stakeholders to support effective planning and development of industrial infrastructure. IIS is evolving as India’s One-Stop Shop for information on all the components of the industrial ecosystem. As part of this initiative, The DPIIT has introduced the Industrial Park Rating System (IPRS) to contribute towards building a framework for enhancing industrial competitiveness and cluster development.

The objective of the Industrial Information System (IIS)

Industrial Information System (IIS) aims to provide the following benefits to the traders and investors:

  • The IIS portal serves as a one-stop solution for all trades, investors to access the industrial information including the availability of raw material, agriculture details, horticulture, minerals information, natural resources; layers of terrain and urban infrastructure.
  • IIS portal provides information related to available land for prospective investors looking to set up units in India
  • Geographic Information System (GIS) Mapping of Industrial Clusters has been done in the IIS portal; the user can create interactive queries, analyze spatial information, edit information in maps and present the results of all the operations
  • The Industrial Information System furnishes the information about the existing External and Internal Infrastructure such as road, air, rail and port connectivity and other common facilities in the manufacturing clusters
  • The official website links of State GIS Portals and State Land Banks also available in the Industrial Information System (IIS)

Category of Industrial Corridors

The Industrial Information System (IIS) comprise details of the following category of industrial corridors:

Primary Sector Covered under IIS

The primary sectors covered under the Industrial Information System are as follows:

  • Textile
  • Automobile
  • Electronic Hardware
  • Software
  • Leather
  • Food Processing
  • Machine Tools and Engineering
  • Petroleum and Chemicals
  • Mixed
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Medical Devices

Benefits of Industrial Information System

As described above, the Industrial Information System provides access to large information repository that can use in various ways: The user can compare the industrial areas across the geographies in the country, identify land available for industrial investment, identify available schemes and incentives, and identify the transport network accessibility, resource availability and gateway infrastructure. IIS maps the industrial areas at the sector level across states and helps understand the industrial ecosystem better.

The Industrial Information System aims to collaborate with various stakeholders and develop a framework based on the cluster approach which facilitates the building of a competitive industrial ecosystem.


The policymakers, industrial investors, financial institutions, industrialists, government, researcher and industrial developers can access the information available in the Industrial Information System portal.

GIS Mapping of Industrial Clusters

Industrial Information System provides a GIS-enabled database of industrial areas including clusters, parks nodes, and zone across the country. The GIS layered regarding the agriculture and horticulture raw materials availability also added in the IIS. This GIS mapping features help identify the presence of industrials clusters like OEM (Original equipment manufacturer ) parts manufacture, light engineering, heavy machinery manufacturing, automobile and allied parts manufacturing, textiles, food processing, and electronics.

Industrial Park Rating System (IPRS)

The industrial park rating system is an integral part of the Industrial Information System (IIS), aims to identify leading benchmarks in India, identify best practices at the national level, support in identifying and augmenting the desired interventions for developing the industrial ecosystem.

Selection of Industrial Parks

The State Government and Central Government Ministries can nominate 5 to 10 industrial parks, industrial estates, clusters for Industrial Park Rating System. The industrial park should have a minimum of 25% of occupancy and the industrial park need to be at least 250 acres in size for nominating Industrial Park Rating.

Parameters for Industrial Park Rating

IPRS framework has been developed across four pillars contributing to the development of an industrial ecosystem; the following are the parameters for industrial park rating.

Internal Infrastructure and utilities

The Internal Infrastructure and utility category considers the following parameter, which will help assess the quality of infrastructure within the park and the quality of critical utility supply. The industries in the parks should have the following benefits to qualify for the Industrial Park Rating under the Industrial Information System.

  • Electricity and Power Availability
  • Infrastructure Service
  • Sewage Treatment Plant
  • Effluent Treatment Plant
  • Piped Water supply
  • Water Treatment Plant
  • Covered Strom Water drainage
  • 100% paved roads in the park
  • Street light
  • Use of captive renewable energy generation
  • Gas pipeline

External Infrastructure and utilities

This category compromises of parameters which relate to the park’s connectivity with the external areas. These parameters are important to the prospective tenants to assess the ease with which they can bring in raw material for manufacturing, recruit employees and ship out the finished products for both domestic and export markets. The following are the parameters under the external infrastructure and utility category.

  • Logistic terminal
  • Power Substation
  • Solid waste disposal
  • Distance from a bus stop, rail, airport, seaport and major city

Business Support Service

This category comprises parameters that relate to the additional services of the industrial park developer. With the evolution in the quality of Industrial Parks, this category has become increasingly important and plays a major role to assess the competitiveness of the Industrial Park. The industry should have the following business services and facilities for getting IPRS.

  • Availability of plot and price details in the SIDE website
  • Online procedure for application and allotment of land
  • Single Window Services
  • Dormitory for labour and drivers
  • Availability of bank or ATM, Canteen or restaurant in the park
  • Weighbridge for cargo and freight available within the park
  • Availability of skill centre within the park

Environment and Safety

This category comprises parameters that relate to the maintenance of safety and environmental standards within the park. These parameters become more important in the case of polluting industries. On these parameters, prospective tenants can gauge the health care services provided and safety management standards maintained in the park.

  • Availability of fire hydrants, fire trucks, fire fighting systems
  • Establishment of disaster management protocol
  • Availability of air quality monitoring station, CCTV and another security system
  • Availability of PHC, CSC, ESI Dispensary or 25-bed hospital inside the park
