  • MNREGS and budget allocation

  • This time more budget allocation has been done in MNREGS than previous year though right group opposed it and demand for provision to employment on demand rather than only 100 days limit

  • MNREGS should be more creative and sensitive in the time of the distress in the economy like demonetization and drought

  • But major problem are ghost worker, lack of monitoring system with help of technology like space technology, delay in wage payment, no creation of capital asset, more leakages etc.

  • Transparency and accountability in political party funding

  • Finance minister move to only bank transaction to donation above 2000 is welcome step toward politics with passion

  • There are only provision but no mention of the mechanism because if donation not registered not verified then what will be?

  • This also led to lack of neutrality to donor as their name declared means rival party will affect his/her interest if donor party not coming to power

  • There should be best possible way is to take political party under the ambit of the RTI.
