In a significant stride forward during the unveiling of Rajasthan’s interim Budget, Finance Minister Diya Kumari has put forth a bold proposal earmarking Rs 1,000 crore. This substantial funding is aimed at the establishment and enhancement of educational institutions, healthcare facilities, and administrative structures spread across various assembly constituencies. Noteworthy in this announcement is the initiation of an ambitious recruitment drive, set to fill a staggering 70,000 positions.

Minister Kumari, throughout the budget presentation, underscored the imperative of balanced development, casting a critical eye on the previous government’s apparent neglect of crucial assembly constituencies like Ladpura, Nasirabad, Siwana, Ahor, Dag, and Malpura. In response to this oversight, she unveiled a provision of Rs 1,000 crore, strategically directed towards kickstarting and upgrading additional colleges, schools, hospitals, and administrative buildings, with the overarching goal of ensuring harmonized regional progress.

A spotlight was thrown on the Mukhyamantri Jal Swavlamban Abhiyan, a noteworthy initiative aiming to construct 5 lakh water harvesting structures in 20,000 villages over the next four years. This ambitious endeavor is set to receive substantial backing with an allocation of Rs 11,200 crore. Minister Kumari emphasized the pivotal role of this initiative in rectifying the past neglect of certain assembly constituencies, constituting a crucial step towards holistic development.

Addressing the pressing issue of traffic congestion in Jaipur city, Minister Kumari announced the commencement of a Detailed Project Report for extending the Jaipur Metro from Sitapura to Ambabari. This strategic move reflects the government’s commitment to tackling urban mobility challenges and bolstering overall infrastructure.

Furthermore, Minister Kumari laid out plans for Mukhyamantri Jal Swavlamban Abhiyan-2, concentrating on the creation of an additional 5 lakh water harvesting structures in 20,000 villages over the next four years, with a substantial budgetary provision of Rs 11,200 crore. The commitment to recruiting 70,000 individuals for various positions underscores the government’s unwavering dedication to fortifying public service delivery and administrative efficiency.

Looking ahead, a comprehensive Budget for the fiscal year 2024-25 is slated for presentation in July. Following the provisions of Article 116 of the Constitution, a vote on account is presented to cover essential government expenditure for a limited period until the official approval of the Budget. This interim measure, amounting to one-sixth of the total estimates, ensures the seamless functioning of essential government operations.
