The Karnataka Budget for 2008-09 presented by Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram had no fanfare, no announcements of new schemes and no new “populist” initiatives.

Mr. Chidambaram presented the budget proposals for the State for 2008-09 in the Lok Sabha on Monday.

The budget allocates Rs.1 billion for upgrading airports in Mangalore, Mysore, Hubli, Bijapur, Shimoga, Hassan, Gulbarga, Karwar, Bidar and Belgaum.

An amount of Rs.500 million is earmarked for a new state secretariat building, Suvarna Soudha in Belgaum.
