In the context of the NPC requesting 7,978 million for its development projects for 2016 the government had only allocated 3,199 million.

All the PCs had submitted their requirements to the Government prior to the Budget. Accordingly the NPC also submitted request for 7,978 million through its 4 ministries. But the Government had only allocated 3,199 million. Last year also the NPC requested 6,977 million but, the Government granted only 1,440 million.

Now, the budget of the NPC will be prepared on the basis of the amount allocated by the government.
