The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday gave the green signal for the conduct of the Global Investors' Meet (GIM) in Bangalore on June 3 and 4 by dismissing a case against it.

An advocate from Bangalore, G.R. Mohan, had filed an interlocutary application (IA) challenging the conduct of the GIM even as the State was facing severe power shortage.

The petitioner had sought to know how the Government could ensure power if more industries were set up. Additional Advocate-General K.M. Nataraj submitted that the GIM was being held to attract investments, some even in the power sector.

Mr. Nataraj said the State is expected to generate surplus power by 2014 and said all steps had been taken to increase power production.

A Division Bench dismissed the IA.
