Delhi allocates 26% to education in its budget

In June a year ago, the AAP government had announced that over 500 locations across east Delhi would be made high-speed Wi-fi zones by December 2016, allowing access to free internet till a pre-determined limit daily. Besides education and health, we have focused on roads, sewer and water.

In the budget for the financial year 2017-2018, 23.5 per cent of the total budget amount was allocated for the education sector. While presenting the budget, deputy CM said that he is proud to announce the budget for the fourth time in the Legislative Assembly.

More than Rs 6,700 crore has been allocated for health sector.

Presenting estimates for the 2018-19 fiscal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said this is the first "Green budget" of the government aimed at effective containment of pollution in the city.

The green budget envisages a real-time source apportionment study of air pollution, developing a model for forecasting of air pollution scenario and setting up 1,000 indoor display panels inside all government buildings dealing with the public to display information on air pollution levels.

A total of 48,879 patients, suffering from tuberculosis, were put on treatment till December 31, 2017 as against 57,000 patients in fiscal 2016-17, it stated.

Rs 403 crores allocated for Mohalla Clinics and Polyclinics.

26% of the total budget that is highest sectored allocation goes to education.

Rs 1500 crore allocated for infrastructure development of unauthorised colonies. The Delhi government has allocated Rs 175 crore for the objective. Through these, the parents will be able to monitor their children online. There is a lot for poor people, women, middle class and students.

Rs 25 crore has been proposed for the first phase of the project, an official said. Rs 6729 crore is allocated for the health sector. The government had, last fiscal when 110 of these were functional, announced that it meant to increase the number of Mohalla Clinics to 150.

Maken said that it was very odd that in every AAP budget, it is claimed that 1500 new buses would be added to the DTC fleet, 1000 Mohalla Clinics would be established, and CCTV cameras will be setup and free Wi-Fi would be provided, but the ground reality is totally different as none of these promises have been fulfilled.
