I originally submitted a budget of 156,430 Rs. for my project.  However, I expect to spend a total of  163,900 Rs. by the time the project ends.  This is [163,900-156,430] 7,470 Rs. over my planned budget.  The reason for this overspend is that lab set up, food expense and wikipedian transportation.  I would like to request a new total budget of 163,900 Rs. for my project.

I'm approving this budget change request for a 7,470 Rs. increase, for a total budget of 163,900 Rs. --Marti (WMF) (talk) 16:03, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
