Delhi govt announces Rs 100 crore for Wi-Fi project

Delhi Has 556 Motor Vehicles Per One Thousand People

In the past, the AAP government has presented an "education and health budget' and "outcome budget".

Delhi's budget for 2018-19 has been pegged at Rs 53,000 crore.

Maken said that it was very unusual 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.

In the budget for the financial year 2017-2018, 23.5 per cent of the total budget amount was allocated for the education sector.

This is the first "Green budget" of the government for effective containment of pollution in the city, the Deputy CM said in the budget session of the Assembly.

The budget provides for subsidies to restaurants to replace coal tandoors with electricity- or gas-based tandoors. The AAP government has allocated Rs 403 crore for mohalla clinics and polyclinics in 2018-2019 and Rs 20 crore for free diagnostic tests. Subsidy will also be offered to switch over from diesel generator sets with capacity of 10 KVA or more.

Government will also launch a incentivised pilot Agriculture-cum-Solar Farm scheme, under which solar panels will be installed on raised structures on agricultural farms without affecting the normal farming activities.

He said tablets will be provided to all teachers in government schools to help them keep an online record of students.

Rs 1500 crore allocated for infrastructure development of unauthorised colonies.

Around 200-250 cameras to be installed in each school so parents can see their children through live-streaming.

The Arvind Kejriwal government projects the thrust on curbing pollution in the budget as its third biggest initiative in governance after the steps that it has taken in the fields of education and health. The total allocation for education sector stands at 13,997 crore.

Attacking the budget, BJP Delhi Chief Manoj Tiwari said: "From working on pollution control to ration distribution, this budget seems concentrating on privatizing the services". He also noted that Rs 1,000 crore was allotted for fix of roads under municipal corporations and Rs 100 crore for those in markets.
