Ashwath Narayan said "The Government of Karnataka will establish a 'Legal Framework for Innovation' with the aim to encourage new and emerging technologies in the state". Meanwhile a Vision Group will also be created for startups in the state which will involve industrialists and academicians. Furthermore Ashwath Narayan added "We are working on a draft bill which proposes to establish a mechanism for the creation of regulatory sandboxes in Karnataka, which will broadly describe a set of conditions under which innovative technologies can be tested in a controlled testing environment by relaxing regulatory requirements".



Moreover BS Yeddyurappa said that the state government will urge companies to make investments in places other than Bengaluru like Mysuru, Mangaluru, Hubballi-Dharwad, Shivamogga and Belagavi. Yeddyurappa said "The policy will focus on attracting investments and generating employment in Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities". Perhaps the idea for setting up an Innovation Authority was earlier brought up during former Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy's tenure in 2018 but it did not come to fruition.
