BANGALORE: The state’s budget for the year 2010-11 will be presented on March 5. Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa, who is also the finance minister, will present the budget.
The cabinet which met here on Wednesday decided to convene the budget session of the state legislature from February 25 to March 26. Governor HR Bharadwaj will address the joint session on the opening day and the budget will be presented on March 5.
In a bid to keep its promise of conducting legislature session at least for 60 days this year, the state government is conducting the budget session for almost a month. This could provide members of both the Houses sufficient time for debate on the budget.
