The Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) has been facing a major setback in its development plans as the state government has neglected the council’s approved budget. Despite the council approving a budget of 5,536.09 crore for the fiscal year 2022-23, the state government has only approved a budget of 619.26 crore, and the actually received funds stand at a mere 324.30 crore, leaving the council with insufficient funds for the development of the tribal communities in the region.
This is not the first time that the state government has neglected the council’s approved budget. In the past four fiscal years, the state government has consistently approved budgets lower than what the TTAADC had requested. For instance, in the previous fiscal year, the council had approved a budget of 1,042.95 crore, but the state government had only approved a budget of 584.18 crore, leaving a shortfall of 458.77 crore.
The TTAADC’s budget is crucial for the development of the region as it includes provisions for the development of infrastructure, health, education, and employment opportunities for the tribal population. However, the neglect by the state government has severely impacted the council’s ability to implement its plans and provide the necessary support to the tribal communities.
The TTAADC has expressed its disappointment with the state government’s neglect of its approved budget and has urged the government to take immediate action to address the issue. The council has also highlighted the importance of the budget for the development of the region and the well-being of the tribal population.
The neglect of the TTAADC’s budget by the state government has been met with widespread criticism from the tribal communities and other stakeholders in the region. The neglect is seen as a major setback to the development of the region and the promotion of tribal welfare.
The neglect of the TTAADC’s approved budget by the state government is a major concern for the development of the region and the welfare of its tribal population. The council’s efforts to promote the development of the region and improve the socio-economic conditions of the tribal communities have been severely impacted, and it is hoped that the state government takes immediate action to address the issue and provide the necessary support to the TTAADC.
