People’s participation crucial in budget process: Subrat Das, CBGA

Feb 16, 2017

According to Das, evaluation of development projects in India is not up to the mark.

New Delhi: Subrat Das, Director, Centre for Budget and Governance Accountability (CBGA), in this episode of Ek Duniya Ek Awaaz talks about the importance of people’s participation in allocation of funds for development projects.

CBGA is a think-tank that focuses on public policies and government finances in India by promoting transparent and accountable governance.

On September 25th, 2015, member states of the United Nations adopted a set of 17 goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.

In this programme, Das says that people’s participation is very important in the process of budget allocation. According to him implementation of planned schemes is a stumbling block in the process of development. “People’s participation is also important for evaluation of the development projects. This keeps a check on the government system implementing such projects,” he said.
