Staff Reporter


Rs. 100 crore allocated for theme park in Hampi

Rs. 50 crore set aside for infrastructure works


BANGALORE: Keeping with the trend of increased budget outlay to the tourism sector in the recent years, the 2011-2012 allocation of Rs. 250 crore has seen an increase by 22 per cent over 2010-2011.

Among those proposed include a theme park in Hampi to commemorate 500 years of coronation of Sri Krishna Devaraya for which an amount of Rs. 100 crore has been kept aside.

Apart from this, an amount of Rs. 10 crore will be provided for the development of Hampi. However, this theme park also had a mention in the 2010-2011 budget in which Rs. 50 crore had been set aside.

A further Rs. 50 crore has been set aside to take up infrastructure works in tourism destinations across the State.

“The increasing budget allocation in the recent years shows the resolve of the government in its support to the tourism sector. Separate allocation for infrastructure is a welcome move,” Tourism Department Director K. Vishwanath Reddy told The Hindu.

The budget has given some relief to the tourism entrepreneurs. Relief in stamp duty and registration fee payable on documents executed in connection with the tourism policy has been announced.
