Click the likn below to read ISDG President John Samuel’s article on 6/7/’16 Mathrubhumi Newspaper, asking for budget participation, transparency and accountability.


Please note a correction: “In my note I said that the expenditure till JUNE( the crucial till June is deleted when they edited my original fb note) in the current financial year is 5.2% and even in the last year ( 2015-16), the total expenditure in June is in the very same range- and the point is to point out that the huge chunk of the budget for ‘development’ is spent in the last few months of the financial year that adversely affect the quality as well as the accountability of the budget.”- The author
