Education-driven budget for Pindi

RAWALPINDI, June 25(Daily Times): The district government will announce Rs 5 billion education-oriented budget for fiscal year 2007-08 today (Monday), which is Rs 500 million more than the last year's budget.

District Nazim Raja Javed Ikhlas told Daily Times that no new tax would be levied in the budget and Rs 2.5 billion half of the budget would be spent on education.

He said there would be an increase of 15 percent in the non-development projects, as both the federal and the Punjab governments had increased salaries by 15 percent and pensions of their employees by different rates.

He said Rs 5.5 had been allocated for citizen community boards.

The nazim said Rs 460 million, provided by President Pervez Musharraf, would be spent on providing electricity to rural areas.

The city government would spend Rs 350 million on the construction of new roads, Rs 110 million on the maintenance of existing roads and Rs 40 million would be spent on the construction of district council hall, he added.

Ikhlas avoided outlining the details of other expenditures, saying that the Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) and WASA would present the budget on water on June 28. Revenues from billboards and hoardings would add to the district government's income, he added. He thanked Punjab Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi for initiating 1122 Rescue Service in the city.

He said the district government had been provided with 15 ambulances, while five fire-brigade vehicles would come soon. "We have set up four rescue centres at the Rawal Road, Pirwadhi, the Cantonment area and Sawan," he added.

He said around 300 youngsters had received physical, medical and first aid training under the rescue project to save lives in disasters.
