Tumakuru Palike presents unique e-budget

In a first of its kind in the State, Tumakuru Mahanagara Palike on Tuesday presented e-budget for the fiscal year 2015-16.

President of Standing Committee for Finance Nagesh presented a surplus paperless budget of Rs 2.03 crore for 2015-16. Tumakuru Palike holds the distinction of first municipal corporation in the State to present a paperless or e-budget, a beaming Nagesh told the council. Corporators greeted it by tapping the table.

Leader of Opposition Sudheeshwar, however, raised objection to the ruling party’s decision to present e-budget without training the corporators in operating the laptops.

“Only four days back, the officials have uploaded a copy of budget into the laptops of the corporators. The corporators have not been trained in operating the laptop,” Sudheeshwar complained.
