AIZAWL, March 19 � Mizoram Finance Minister Lalsawta today presented a Rs 3,277.22 crore interim Budget for the first four months of the 2015-2016 fiscal and Rs 2,154.90 crore supplementary demands for the current fiscal (2014-15).
Lalsawta, in his budget speech, expressed the hope that he would be able to present a regular budget in the next session of the Assembly.
He said that he was unable to present the regular budget this time as the Planning Commission which used to allocate plan fund for the States was abolished and replaced by the NITI Aayog which was also yet to make any plan allocation for Mizoram.
He said that the regular budget would be prepared as soon as the State Government gets a clearer picture on the functioning of the NITI Aayog and after receiving detailed guidelines under the recommendations of the 14th Finance Commission. � PTI
