Key Highlights of Delhi Budget 2015-16

On 25 June 2015, Manish Sisodia, Deputy Chief Minister, presented the 2015-16 Annual Budget for Delhi, terming it as India’s first ‘Swaraj’ budget. For a government that has been facing a lot of criticism for not getting its act together, the budget came as a pleasant surprise to many for its focussed thrust on sectors that are both popular and necessary for the common man of Delhi. Most state budgets spread themselves thin trying to [...]

Delhi Development Under Arvind Kejriwal

As Arvind Kejriwal completes his 100 days in office, Delhi would like to look back and see whether the Chief Minister has vindicated people’s faith in him, after they voted overwhelmingly in his party’s support at a time when the general perception gave little chance to AAP. In all fairness, 100 days is too early to judge a Chief Minister and his Cabinet’s performance but then CM Kejriwal has thrown the gauntlet by opening his [...]
