Puducherry govt needs Centre's nod for budget proposals: V Narayanasamy
By Money Control 28-Aug-2019
We are different from states like Tamil Nadu, where the budget could be prepared and presented on the floor of the state Assembly within days, he pointed out.
Narayanasamy was replying to the allegation by AIADMK legislature party leader A Anbalagan that there was "abnormal delay" in preparation and presentation of the budget.
"We sent it to the Centre projecting fiscal requirement at Rs 8,425 crores on July 13 and we had the clearance of Central grant of Rs 1,500 crores for our budget on August 23 as the Home and Finance Ministries had to peruse our draft budget proposals," he said.
One should not blame the central government for showing delay in clearing its grant and approving the budget proposals of Puducherry, he added.
Disputing the claim of AIADMK that there was basically delay on the part of his government in sending draft proposals to the Centre, the Chief Minister said, "The Parliament had its session and hence the Centre cannot be blamed as it had pressing preoccupation."
