State Budget 2018: Reactions of the People!

Considered generally a magic wand which fulfills all expectations in one stroke, the annual budget of the state is one of the most eagerly awaited events by the public. As soon as it is presented in the assembly, one group has nothing but praise for it while another one finds nothing beneficial for anyone in it. In between are a small number of persons who impartially analyze its positive and negative features that impact different sections of the society like the housewife, the poor, the rich and the middle-class people, the businessmen and the like.

Health Care Sector

In the healthcare sector, the budget provides more ventilators, for ICU Swine flu ward to which 50 more beds were added recently and the nephrology depts. Get four more dialysis machines at the cost of 1.10 Crore. This would benefit the fast-increasing number of swine flu patients that come to M.B Hospital. In September – October last year about 34 persons died of this disease. The facility of dialysis machines would lessen the present waiting period of kidney patients.

Education Sector in Udaipur

The education sector in Udaipur district is to get more facilities. Half out of 544 govt. Adarsh schools at the Gram Panchayat Headquarters do not have enough classrooms in keeping with the number of enrolled students. The provision of building about 3400 additional classrooms in 1163 Adarsh schools in the state would also benefit Udaipur schools. Over 3 lac school students in the district are to get milk three times in a week as part of Poshahar scheme. The district has 653 secondary and about 3500 primary schools that are run by the govt. Recruitment of over 77,000 school teachers would improve quality of teaching in govt. Madanmohan Malviya Ayurved College, Udaipur. At present, there are P.G courses in 5 subjects. Now provision has been made for P. G diploma courses in Sharsutra (30 seats) B.Sc Nursing course (20 seats) one-year course P.G diploma course in Panch Karma technical assistant (30 seats) and diagnosis and maternity course. This would raise the quality of medical services.

Mavli is to get a government college. To solve the problem of inadequacy of teaching faculty, the services of retired faculty can be taken on pay minor pension basis. Students of M.G College, Udaipur would benefit from the decision to include in state financing 64 subjects of three facilities of U.G and P.G courses that are being run for five years under the self-financing scheme. All the govt. colleges in the state would get wi-fi facilities.


So far as the judiciary is concerned, one more NI cases court is to be added to the five existing ones. There are over 17,500 pending cases of bounced cheques in Udaipur that were filed 10 to 15 years ago. Now cases would be decided more expeditiously.

Games and Sports

All the five Janjati Khel Chatrawas in all the districts of Udaipur Division would be upgraded to sports academies. The three hostels in Udaipur in Madhuban, Sardarpura, and Khelgaon would become academies of games. It would soon, be decided which one would have archery, hockey, football, volleyball, kabaddi, and swimming. This would result in the availability of high quality, coaching, better diet etc.

A provision of 3000 crores has been made for taking water from Banswara Mahi to Jakham and from there to Rajsamand. The sanction of phases three and four of Dewas project would help in the permanent solution of water problem of Rajsamand, Amet, Kelwa, Railmagra, Sardargarh, Deogarh etc. In Udaipur district, there are to be three more ancient at Dholigar, Chuli ka Naka and Akolanaka.

Agriculture, Tourism, and others

Van Upaj Mandi Yards is to be opened in Kotda, Salumber and Gogunda. So, farmers would not here to come to big cities to sell their products. To promote tourism, a concession of 50% on stamp duty has been given to those who purchase or take on lease 10 floors in multi-story buildings.

Maharana Khumbha panorama is to be developed at Malyawas (Madaria).

Kanode has been made tehsil and Arthuna would become a sub-tehsil. Developers have welcomed the budget as DLC rate has been reduced by 10% and it would not be raised till March 2019 stamp duty on EWS and Low-Income Group Housing has been reduced from 75% to 50%. The decision to issue small ‘pattas’ for ‘bajari’ would solve a big problem. The withdrawal of royalty on waste marble blocks that are used in construction is also a welcome move.

Some other decisions that would benefit Udaipur Division include the provision to give seed mini kits free of charge to BPL and Antodaya SC and non-SC farmers of Udaipur Dungarpur, Banswara and Pratapgarh districts. In every Vidhan Sabha area, 15-km long new roads are to be built and 100 hand-pumps are to be set up. ITI’s at district headquarters is to have a smart classroom. Out of 12 ancients to be constructed in the Division Udaipur is to have four, Dungarpur, four (Mandwa, Kharpada, Panchkhundi and Japhra) Banswara five (Kundla, Mahundiwada, Sarwatwala Nala, Umriwala Nala and Chirowali) and Pratapgarh one (Mota Dhamania).

Udaipurites would also have the benefit of several other declarations concerning different classes of citizens.

Not setting up of a high court bench in Udaipur that would have benefited a large number of people, especially the tribal poor ones, is a big disappointment. It has been a long-standing demand of the region. Another expectation of Udaipurities to make the city a film city has also been ignored. Maybe these demands are fulfilled during the debate and the Chief Minister reply.
