On December 31 2020, the newsrack service will be shut down permanently.

It has been a nice long run from the Sarai days in 2004 to being hosted on its own domain around 2006. Beside maintenance, there has been no real active development on the code or the features since early 2008. Since 2015, even all that maintenance was pretty bare bones. A lot of news sources no longer provide reliable RSS feeds and since mid 2018, there were growing issues with the service and I only kept it alive to assist a handful of users.

So, it is time to shut this down. The internet world in 2020 is vastly differently from 2003 when I first conceptualized this service. Thanks for using this all these years.

If you need to access any data, email me: subbu at newsrack.in

Karnataka CM presents populist budget ahead of Assembly elections 15.3.2017 Business Standard: Economy & Policy
Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah turned populist in his last budget ahead of the assembly elections next year, announcing infrastructure projects for Bengaluru, replicating Amma's canteen, the affordable food outlet for urban workers and over Rs 6,000 crore grant to OBC, SC and ST Communities.The budget proposal comes at a time when Karnataka's GDP is expected to grow slower to 6.9 per cent from 7.3 per cent on account of decline in growth in service and manufacturing. The services sector, largely the software export sector, expects to grow to 8.5 per cent, down from 10.4 per cent last year. Industrial growth is expected to reduce by half to 2.2 per cent from over 4.9 per cent last year.This did not dither Siddaramaiah to roll out sops, including cutting down taxes on beer and wine and capping movie tickets at Rs 200.
