Mind the gap: According to this economic survey of Delhi released by the government air and water pollution in the national capital show an alarming increase in recent years. It also revealed some other interesting facts on transport, housing and environment. The economic survey of Delhi which was tabled in the Assembly on Tuesday threw up some interesting facts with regard to the transport, housing, environment and education sectors in the state. However, the resultant rise in air pollution is something the government has failed to address adequately, the survey shows. According to the economic survey, pollution, depletion and degradation of resources did not get as much attention as compared to the issues of growth and development. Statistical abstract of Delhi.
From this it is evident that the principal problem was not excessive expenditure, but inadequate revenue, and that the main cause of this shortfall of revenue was the slowdown in the economy as a whole.
How Chidambaram brought down the fiscal deficit How did Chidambaram manage to bring the fiscal deficit close to the Budget figure despite the above deviation from the Budget projections, amounting to nearly 1 per cent of GDP? He merely slashed the most important and developmental part of the Budget, namely Plan expenditure, by Rs 92, crore, or 0.
This amounted to a So steep was the reduction that, despite non-Plan expenditure overshooting the budgeted figure by 3. Spending on agriculture was cut by 9. Within social services, general education was cut by 8. The main burden of developmental expenditure, however, is not borne by the Centre, but by the states.
States are mainly responsible for spending on social services health, education, welfare, water supply and sanitation , agriculture, irrigation, and power.
During , the states were short-changed in two ways. But even further, the Centre slashed the non-Plan grants by Rs 6, crore 9.
Thus states lost in all Rs 34, crore from what was promised in the Budget. Expanding social deficits It should be noted that in many of these sectors there are vast social deficits.
The proportion of children who are severely undernourished is also notable: 24 percent are severely stunted and 16 percent are severely underweight. Wasting is quite a serious problem in India, affecting 20 percent of children under five years of age…. Nationally, 34 percent of men age have a BMI below Anaemia is a major health problem for adults as well as children, affecting 55 percent of women and 24 percent of men.

After all, their numbers are sizeable: The Census figure of 2. At first glance, there would seem to be no way to cut the allocation for the welfare of the disabled: The Budget allocated a mere Rs crore to this head. Even taking the number of disabled as in the Census, this allocation would have amounted to less than Rs per disabled person. However, even this meagre sum could not escape the eagle eye of fiscal wizard Chidambaram.
The Rs crore was halved, to Rs crore, in the course of the year. It seems to be working.
Since the previous year was one of severe cuts in Plan spending, the ill-effects of that will linger in It would require additional spending in the coming year merely to compensate for the severe setback of the previous year. Instead, there is a cut in real terms, i.
Plan spending is budgeted to rise only 6. Within the overall Plan figure, the Central Plan is budgeted to rise 7. Within this, the allocation for Agriculture is to rise by just 6. Energy is to rise by just 0. Social Services are budgeted to rise by 9. However, even these spending levels may be cut. Published on February 27, This article is closed for comments.
