Karnataka Budget: CM earmarks Rs 150 crore for eco-tourism and revival of ancient water supply system

Another Rs 25 crore has been set aside to set up interpretation centres at Bandipur, Dandeli, and Kabini to promote eco-tourism. The government is also trying to revive the old projects by setting up cable car or ropeway facilities in ten major tourist spots under Public Private Partnership.

New programmes to promote adventure tourism, water sports, and coastal tourism are also being planned, Siddaramaiah said. That apart, the government is also planning to write to the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) requesting them to take up research and restoration of archaeological monuments and remains at the first university of Karnataka that was established at Nagavi, Kalaburagi district during the times of Rashtrakutas.

A well-furnished hotel at Aihole of Bagalakot district and the development of Roerich and Devika Rani Estate area is also on the plans, Siddaramaiah said.
