ISLAMABAD - The Government is likely to allocate Rs 6,093 billion as Indicative Budget Ceilings for Recurrent and Developmental budget for the upcoming fiscal year 2010-11 under different heads of expenditure, which will be 6.57 percent higher than the allocations for the current financial year, TheNation has reliably learnt. According to the documents available with TheNation, the Government will allocate Rs 6,093 billion as Indicative Budget Ceilings under different heads of expenditures in the coming fiscal year against Rs 5,717 billion of the current year.

The break-up of Indicative Budget Ceilings revealed that the Government would keep Rs 442 billion for defence service in the upcoming fiscal year, which is almost 30 percent higher than the allocation of the ongoing financial year.
