Cabinet nod for naming BIA after Kempe Gowda

The Cabinet decided to name BIA as Kempe Gowda International Airport to fulfil demands from various quarters that the international airport be named after the founder of the City. The Government also decided to name 64-km of NH-4 after Shivakumara Swami as the stretch connects Bangalore with Tumkur, the headquarters of Siddaganga Mutt.
The resolutions would now be forwarded to the Centre for approval, sources said.

Bicycles for students

The Cabinet gave the administrative approval for distributing bicycles to students in government high schools.

In December last year, the Government had decided to give cash of Rs 2,250 in lieu of bicycle to each student this academic year.

However, several ministers urged Yeddyurappa that only bicycles be provided as distribution of cash might lead to misappropriation and confusion.  The Cabinet approved a decision to accommodate 3,500 teaching faculty working in the now defunct Job-Oriented Courses (JOC) colleges into various departments of the State government. The government had decided to close down JOC colleges last year.

The Cabinet gave clearance for Acharya Group of Institutions to set up a medical college on the outskirts of Bangalore with an intake of 100 seats.

It approved increase in the intake from 100 to 150 for Sapthagiri Medical College, Bangalore. The Cabinet decided to regularise services of around 500 principals and teachers of the Morarji Desai Residential Schools.

Suvarna Bhoomi

The Suvarna Bhoomi Yojane that aims to benefit 10 lakh families of farmers also got administrative approval by the Cabinet.

Under the scheme announced in the Budget 2011-12, farmers holding dry land up to two acres will get an aid of Rs 10,000 through banks to improve yields.

Several ministers in the Cabinet said the scheme should be implemented at the earliest and the first installment of Rs 5,000 should reach the farmers before the onset of monsoon.
