The FM has announced increased allocations to so many schemes and the amounts are really mind-numbing. But then the allocation is only a small part of the entire story. How much of the allocations have been really used? And more importantly how much of them are really used for the purposes they were really intended?
After all, it was Rajiv Gandhi who said that only 5 paise of every rupee spent by the Government reaches the actual beneficiary.
So, can we have a score card of the allocations used until Dec 06 on a proportional basis to actually see if there is a case for increase in allocations?
