MSMEs see some cheer in budget 15.3.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Industry in Karnataka, especially the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), have much to cheer as the budget has come out with various initiatives aimed at improving the sector. Explaining about the government's move to bring about land reforms for MSMEs, Federation of Karnataka Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FKCCI) president MCDinesh said, "Between 2014 and 2017, all the land given by the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) and Karnataka Small Scale Industries Development Corporation (KSSIDC) on lease to industrialists was for 99 years. We've always debated that it should be leased for only 10 years, after which, it could be sold back to the industry. This was the rule prior to 2014 too, but currently remains abolished. Post the budget, we'll go back to the old rule, which says that if land is taken from any of the two agencies, it will be in the industrialist's name after the 10th year, who'll receive ownership." For MSMEs, land is bread and butter, and even in the future, ...

CPI seeks people-friendly budget 10.3.2017 deccanherald.com
Demanding a people-friendly budget, the CPI unit of Dakshina Kannada district staged a protest in front of Deputy Commissioner's office here on Friday. Addressing the protesters, CPI DK and Udupi secretary V Kukkyan said the state is reeling under a worst drought with more than 160 taluks being declared as drought-hit. With the failure of South West Monsoon and North East Monsoon, crops worth Rs 25,000 crore have been lost according to the state government's estimates. The people in rural areas are in distress due to shortage of drinking water and lack of employment, he claimed. Noting that the Union government has not taken any measures to waive farm loan in its budget, he said it has also failed to announce compensation for the loss of crops following drought. BJP that has been demanding waiver of loans borrowed by the farmers in Karnataka, has failed to impress upon the BJP-led government at the Centre to waive the loan, he criticised. He condemned steep increase in the price of LPG cylinders. From Rs ...
