State Budget Reactions

Share This

Mr. Adarsh Narahari, Secretary, CREDAI Bengaluru

I am happy to see Bengaluru get a large allocation of funds for city development which was much needed. It is also heartening to see a proposal to provide permanent housing in slums through a PPP model. The development of 5 commercial hubs along major arterial roads and funds for KIABD to create an industrial corridor are other positives. Overall the budget does a good balancing act in catering to various sections and their needs.

The State Government has presented a detailed budget with benefits to most sectors. The budget presented today was a completely group oriented budget. The decision to waive off penalties on property taxes for industries in industrial areas and townships if the principal amount is paid in a single installment is a positive step. Additionally, the proposal for permanent housing in slums through the PPP model will also be a big plus. I would say it’s a step in the right direction.

* Happy to hear that Government has proposed Super Specialty hospitals in different places of the State for Cancer and Heart ailment.
* The State Budget is fair enough when compared to Union Budget 2018.
* Would be more appreciated if the Government would have implemented New Edge treatments and Free Treatment for BPL card holders in the State.
* Addition 1,000 bed ward announced for Bangalore Medical College.
* Few More Universal Health schemes like Arogya Karnataka Yojane should be introduced.
