The government managed to use 95 percent of the allocation for Annual Development Programme (ADP) last fiscal year, Planning Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal said yesterday.
Some Tk 56,793 crore of the revised ADP of Tk 60,000 crore was utilised, Kamal told reporters.
Although the implementation rate is lower than in the previous year, Kamal was still satisfied with the end result given the political strife for a good part of fiscal 2013-14. The implementation rate in fiscal 2012-13 was 96 percent.
Some 25 ministries have utilised 86 to 107 percent of their allocation, the planning minister said. “I would give 10 out of 10 to these ministries.”
The power division and the ministries of rural development and cooperatives, disaster management, expatriates welfare, housing and public works, civil aviation and defence have implemented 100 percent of their allocations.
The road division, the ministries of agriculture, home, water resource, science and technology and primary and mass education have implemented 99 percent of their allocations, while the implementation rate of the education ministry and the railway and bridges divisions stood at 96 percent.
The minister, however, did not name the ministries and divisions whose implementation was below 96 percent.
