(v) Indian Statistical Institute, 203 Barrackpore Trunk Road Calcutta - 700 035 West Bengal Type: Institute of National Importance


It is our claim that as in case of roads where despite various other headings such as pradhan mantree gramya sada yojana, there is some balance (across states) in terms of national highways, similarly despite HRD budget spent in other headings, there should be some kind of balance in spending (across states) with respect to HRD national highways.

Using the latest budget given in (part 7, sbe58, sb82 and sbe90)
we will show that Orissa is towards the bottom with respect to Rupees spent on HRD national highways computed per capita as well as computed as a whole. Moreover some states will have multiple times more spending than Orissa. This is unacceptable and this imbalance needs to be corrected asap.
