CM holds pre-budget meeting

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Monday commenced the pre-budget preparations by reviewing the Department of Personnel and Administration Reforms (DPAR).

The first budget of the Congress government is likely to be presented by Siddaramaiah, who also holds the finance portfolio, during the second week of July. While only one department was reviewed on Monday, sources in the chief minister’s office said, 10 departments would be reviewed on Tuesday including Revenue, Housing, Energy, Urban Development, Women and Child Development and BBMP.

Sources said the chief minister would take up review of each department individually with the minister concerned and top officials.

One more round of meetings would be held in a couple of weeks wherein the
programmes and schemes which the government would incorporate in the budget would be discussed, the sources said.
