The self-sufficient budget of the Shivraj government, which came just before the elections, is also being seen from the perspective of local body elections.
- Amount of octroi to Municipal Corporations increased by 560 crores
- PWD budget increased from 6,866 crores to 7,341 crores
- Announcement of opening of new medical college, 300 crore rupees given in budget
The trumpet for the civic body elections is going to be held soon in Madhya Pradesh. The State Election Commission is in the process of conducting elections to the urban bodies as well as panchayats. Several announcements made in the self-sufficient budget of the Shivraj government, which came just before the election, are being seen from the perspective of local body elections. The reason for this is that the government has to increase the water-life mission budget by 337% to solve the drinking water crisis. There has also been a promise to give arrears of employees. A provision has been made to spread a network of 2 thousand km of roads in the state.
The government has promised the remaining 75% of the 7th pay scale to the 10 lakh employees in the budget. It is clear that with this BJP will try to get hold of about 50 lakh voters. Announcing the provisions made in the budget for the employees, Finance Minister Jagdish Deora said that the remaining 75% of the seventh pay scale will be provided to the employees of Madhya Pradesh soon. This amount will be paid in the financial year 20-21. Orders in this regard will be issued soon.
It is clear that the government does not want to offend employees. So that the BJP does not suffer loss in both the upcoming elections. During the 2003 assembly elections, there was a resentment among the employees against the then Digvijay government. This is the reason why the Shivraj government does not want to keep the judgment pending in the case of employees. Please tell that the order was issued by CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan for the payment of 25% of the last installment of the 7th pay scale. Shivraj had already said that he should give the remaining amount early.
475 crores increase in PWD budget
The government increased the budget of PWD from 6,866 crores to 7,341 crores. That is, an increase of 475 crores rupees. This time this department will construct more than 2 thousand kilometers of main roads. Similarly, provision of 65 bridges and 105 ROBs has been made in the budget. In the name of developing urban infrastructure from these construction works, BJP will try to take credit in the election. The government has put the department in the budget of Rs 891 crore for the repair of roads.
Amount of octroi compensation increased by Rs 560 crore
The government has increased the amount received by the municipal corporations in lieu of octroi compensation by Rs 560 crore.

330 million lumpsum for basic amenities
For basic amenities in urban areas, the government will give a lump sum amount to the bodies. A provision of Rs 330 crore has been made in the budget for this item. Similarly, 262 crore rupees have been given for Bhopal and Indore for metro rail project. However, a tender of Rs 300 crore has recently been issued for Bhopal metros.
11,128 crore for the Water Life Mission
