“Delhi is a financially self-dependant state which generates 95 per cent of its resources by itself and does not depend on any financial assistance from outside,” he said.

The city Budget was of Rs 53,000 crore in 2018-19 and Rs 44,370 crore for 2017-18.

In the current proposed Budget, education again gets the highest allocation with 26 per cent.

“Our government has, since starting, kept about one-fourth of its Budget for education,” he said.

He also said that the share of the transport sector has been doubled in 2019-20.

“Rs 1,807 crore has been kept in the financial year 2019-20 for implementation of various schemes, programmes and projects of public transport which is nearly double than the revised estimates of 2018-19,” he said.

The Budget also allocated Rs 100 crore for implementation of the Swaminathan Commission’s recommendation of higher minimum support price for crops, he said.
