IMRAN ALI KUNDI ISLAMABAD - The government has released Rs 13.2 billion for Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP) during first month (July) of the ongoing financial year 2011-2012. According to the official documents of the Planning Commission of Pakistan, the government has spent Rs 13.2 billion on the PSDP during the month of July of the current fiscal year. According to the break-up of Rs 13.2 billion, the government has spent Rs 9.3 billion on the Infrastructure, Rs 3.9 billion on the Social sector and Rs 0.003 billion on others sectors during the previous month of July. The government has fixed Rs 730 billion PSDP for the ongoing financial year 2011-2011 in which federal component is Rs 300 billion and Rs 430 billion is provincial share. The government has allocated Rs 300 billion for the federal PSDP for the current fiscal year wherein Rs 10 billion is earmarked for the Earthquake Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Authority (ERRA). The official documents of the PSDP revealed that government has planned to release Rs 253.5 billion from its own resources while Rs 36. 5 billion would come through foreign loan/foreign exchange component during the year 2011-2012. The break-up of governments allocated Rs 253.3 billion showed that it would spend Rs 124.5 billion on the infrastructure, Rs 126.2 billion on social sector and Rs 2.8 billion on other sectors during the current financial year 2011-2012. The economists feared that government might not able to spend the allocated Rs 300 billion on the PSDP following its previous traditions owing to its financial constraints and to control its ever-soaring fiscal deficit. It might be mention here that government always cuts its PSDP when it did not find other option to run its expenditures, as it slashed the PSDP by Rs 100 billion during the previous fiscal year 2010-2011 after the unprecedented floods in the country.
