Special projects for rejuvenating Kerala Tourism to feature in upcoming state budget

Published on : Tuesday, January 29, 2019

Special projects for rejuvenating the tourism sector of Kerala are likely to come up in the upcoming state budget. The focus will be on marketing programmes to show the international tourism fraternity that Kerala has returned to normal after the devastating floods.


“Out-of-the-box ideas in marketing will help the state tide over the crisis owing to low tourist footfall. Projects like the Champions Boat League will show the world the sector is alive and vibrant,” said Finance Minister T M Thomas Isaac.


The budget will also announce a big amnesty scheme for traders to collect tax arrears. Social security schemes will also be there in the budget.


“The government is spending around Rs 50,000 crore through different agencies on infrastructure, ease of doing business and others. However, we cannot ignore ordinary citizens. The government will continue to offer them benefits,” Isaac added.


The budget is also likely to announce schemes for traditional industries like the Chendamangalam handloom, which have suffered losses in the floods.
