Draft of Rs8tr Punjab budget prepared


The draft of the Rs8 trillion worth first budget for the new financial year has been prepared. The Planning and Development Board prepared a report based on preliminary recommendations in the development budget for the financial year.

More than Rs60 billion were estimated in the first draft of Lahore. In the new financial year 2023-24, the size of the development budget has increased by Rs150 billion as compared to the last year. Due to rising inflation, the cost of ongoing development projects has doubled.

The bottlenecked funds in the supervisory setup also led to the doubling of the cost of development projects.
