Mr P. Jayarama Bhat, Managing Director, Karnataka Bank Ltd, has termed the Budget for 2011-12 as neutral to positive with a definite growth orientation in terms of overall objectives. Fiscal deficit target of 4.6 per cent, which is projected, is achievable, considering the past performance of the current finance team, even though the numbers are too optimistic. With this, the interest scenario for the coming financial year may be moderate, he said.

Good and progressive
