Telangana government on Monday decided not to introduce a separate budget for Agriculture for the financial year 2018-19, as announced earlier.

Official statement from CM K Chandrashekhar’s Office said, “The reason for this is absence of a provision for a separate department wise budget in the Constitution. The guidelines and Legislative procedures will also not permit a separate budget for any department”

“Under Rule 150 of the Legislative guidelines, receipts and expenditure are only treated as Budget. Other plans, programmes and schemes would come under the Bills and as such they cannot be treated as separate Budget,” the officials explained.

With this, the CM announced the withdrawal of proposal to introduce a separate Agriculture Budget for the financial year 2018-19 for agriculture
