The non-tax revenue increased by 12 per cent over previous year and the augmentation of revenue from own tax sources increased by 5 per cent, said Meena.

The programme expenditure till August 2018 was around 32 per cent of the budget provision against which the expenditure till August this year was 28 per cent of the budgeted allocation.

The chief secretary directed to expedite implementation of the projects and utilization of the budgeted amount in coming months.

The departments were asked to implement the reforms in the field of budget preparation, strengthening macro-fiscal forecasting, annual and medium term budgeting and introducing commitment control system for uninterrupted financing to various projects and programmes.
