Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy presented the first budget of his Congress-JD(S) coalition government in the Vidhana Soudha on Thursday.
- New super specialty hospitals will be opened at Belagavi at BIMS (Work has commenced)
- It is proposed to take up a project at a cost of Rs.100 crore for irrigation facility from Krishna River to about 10,225 hectares land of Hirekodi, Nagarala, Nez, etc., villages of Chikkodi Taluk of Belagavi District.
- Proposal to increase the rate of tax on petrol from the present 30% to 32% and diesel from 19% to 21%, so petrol price will be increased by Rs.1.14/ltr and diesel by Rs 1.12/ltr
- Annabhagya scheme: Quantity of rice cut from 7 kg to 5 kg
- Tax on liquor up 4%
1 thought on “Karnataka budget – nothing for Belagavi in specific”
The proposal to increase Petrol price seems to be unavoidable for the economy to survive, but kindly consider whether it is feasible to implement my humble suggestions: i) If possible, at retail level, those who fill only 3 Litres or less than 3 Litres (at a time) for 2-wheeler & 3-wheeler requirements, should be charged slightly lesser, and others can be charged higher. This is suggested because, 2-wheeler users & auto-rickshaw- depending commuters are normally at Lower Income Level than car owners. ii) Cutting rice from 7Kg to 5Kg for Annabhagya Scheme may please be re-examined. The rationale behind this cutting is likely to remain obscure to a vast majority of the Public.
