Dasara 2018 : proposal for Rs 16 cr submitted

Deputy Commissioner D Randeep, also Special officer for Dasara, has written to the state government to allocate Rs 16 crore for Dasara-2018 in the upcoming budget. The DC has made the proposal to ensure timely payment to the contractors and the sub-committees involved in Dasara preparation works.

The DChas mentioned that as the payments of Dasara-2017 were delayed, the sub-committee members and contractors have been repeatedly approaching his office seeking clearance of bills. The state government had sanctioned Rs 15 crore for Dasara-2017. Though the celebration concluded on September 30, 2017, the government released only Rs 4.50 crore in the first phase and is yet to release Rs 10.45 crore invested for the celebration. He said, "We have submitted a tentative proposal for Rs 16 crore for Dasara-2018. The actual requirement will vary depending on the approval given in the High Power Committee Meeting to be held later in the year."
