Heeding to the directive of the Chief Minister to expedite the erection of government department pavilions at Dasara Exhibition, the officials from various districts were seen busy accomplishing the said task yesterday.

Last year, the pavilions of various districts got ready very late prompting the Karnataka Exhibition Authority CEO Dr. H.T. Chandrashekar to issue notices to the respective ZPs. Despite the government providing enough funds, the pavilions of ZPs and several departments used to get ready at a snail’s pace disappointing the visitors.

The Tourism Department has geared up to provide value-based information to visitors in its pavilion. For the first time under one roof about 100 stalls have been erected to exhibit handicrafts of the State.

The much sought-after amusement park is almost ready. A separate park for senior citizens and children will be an added attraction with an exclusive food joint.
