Budget Speech 1990-91

By Shri S.D. Khongwir

Finance Minister


17th April, 1990

Mr. Speaker Sir,

        I rise to present the Budget Estimates for the year 1990-91.

        As the Hon'ble Members are aware, the Budget was to have been presented during the March Session but this could not be done on account of the change of Government on the 26th of the last month and the consequential prorogation of the House.

        The Budget is a major instrument for reflecting the priorities and programmes of the Government. The       estimates which I am presenting now were formulated well  before the present Ministry took office. It may, therefore, become necessary in the course of the year to make certain modifications in these estimates so that the allocations truly reflect the revised priorities of the present Government in certain areas. I propose to achieve this through appropriate measures by reallocation of the overall resources during the course of the year.

National Economy

        After the sharp recovery of 1988-89, the national economy performed more modestly in 1989-90. On the agricultural front, the kharif production is placed at about 97 million tonnes, a million tonnes lower than the target. The rabi crop, however, is expected to be good and the target of 77 million tonnes is like to be achieved. The average monthly index of industrial production for the first seven months of the year indicates a growth rate of 4.4 per cent against a rate of 9.3 per cent achieved during the corresponding period of 1988-89. Despite an excellent export performance, the pressures on the balance of payments persists. The level of foreign exchange reserves decline substantially during this period. The inflationary situation too, continues to cause concern.

State Economy

        At the State level, the performance was encouraging. Thanks to favourable weather conditions, a bumper harvest is likely and foodgrains production is expected to surpass previous records. Significant gains are expected also in  commercial crops such as potato, ginger and mustard.

        Though the industrial development of the State has been slow, a steady increase has taken place in recent years in the number of small scale industries. From a level of 970 in 1987-88, their number rose of 1231 in 1988-89. The total investment made in these units increased from Rs.474.81 Lakhs to Rs.608.66 lakhs during the same period.

        Dependent on other parts of the country for the supply of most essential commodities, the State is particularly vulnerable to upward price movements elsewhere. Inflationary pressures of some intensity were experienced in the State during the year. Substantial increases were registered in the prices of rice, sugar and pulses. The impact was flat both at the wholesale and the retail level.

        The State Domestic Product at current prices has registered sustained growth. Quick estimates prepared by the State Directorate of economics and Statistics show a growth of 7.5 per cent in 1987-88 and 8.2 per cent in 1988-89. During 1989-90, a higher rate of growth is anticipated.


        Hon'ble Members are aware that the Eighth Five Year Plan is being launched in 1990-91. Though the strategy for the Eighth Plan is yet to be finalised at the national level, a considerable amount of work has been done in the State on the formulation of the Five year Plan. The Annual Plan for 1990-91 has been drawn up keeping in view the broad approach of the State's draft Eighth Plan. Following discussions with the Planning Commission, the outlay for the Annual Plan for the next year has been fixed at Rs.175 crores, representing an increase of Rs.25 crores or 16.7 per cent over the outlay of 1989-90.

        Next year's Annual Plan lays emphasis on productivity in Agriculture and allied sectors, including horticulture. It stresses provision of social and community services in the rural areas, in particular health, water supply and housing. Importance is also attached to the creation of employment opportunities through various poverty alleviation programmes. Completion of ongoing schemes and projects, particularly in the infrastructure sector, is given priority.


        Against an anticipated expenditure of Rs.652 lakhs in 1989-90, the agriculture sector will have an outlay of Rs.830 lakhs in 1990-91. The foodgrains production target will be 184 thousand tonnes. With a view to achieve the target, efforts will be made to bring more areas under irrigation, enlarge the coverage under high-yielding varieties and encourage the use of fertilizers. Steps will be taken also to increase the production of pulses and oil seeds.

        Horticultural development will continue to be a priority area. The programme for 50 per cent subsidy on quality planting materials will be given more extensive coverage in 1990-91. The package scheme for credit-cum-subsidy for horticultural crops will also be continued and additional areas will be brought under its purview. The departmental food processing factories will be strengthened and their production capacity enhanced.


        The launching of the Rongai Valley Medium Irrigation Project, the first of its kind in the State, was a notable event. The foundation stone of the project was laid by His Excellency, the Governor of Meghalaya, Shri. A.A. Rahim, on the 7th December, 1989. Estimated to cost Rs.16.30 crores, the project when completed will have a gross command area of 4,775 hectares. An amount of Rs.120 lakhs will be available in 1990-91 for this project and for investigations into three other projects.


        Though the cooperative movement in the State has involved itself in a number of economic activities, it is yet to consolidate its position. In this context, it is gratifying to note that the integrated Cooperative Development Project in the east Khasi Hills District has made considerable progress. A number of tractors and power tillers has been supplied during the year under the scheme. A programme for construction of rural godowns has also been taken up. During 1990-91, the schemes will be extended to cover societies in the West Garo Hills District.

        In the sphere of marketing, initiatives were taken by the State Cooperative Marketing Federation (MECOFED) by taking up potato and cotton procurement. The potato procurement-cum-marketing operation was undertaken in association with selected base level cooperatives. The cotton procurement programme was facilitated by the Cotton Corporation of India.

        The disbursement of credit through the cooperative network is picking up. During the first six months of the last year, short-term loans amounting to Rs.48.30 lakhs were disbursed by the Apex Bank to 2,291 families. During the same period, medium and long-term loans amounting to Rs.47.55 lakhs were also distributed.

Rural Development

        For the benefit of the rural poor, a number of employment-oriented programmes have been taken up for implementation. Under the IRDP 1,160 new families were assisted during the first nine months of 1989-90, 6,000 more families are proposed to be covered under the programme during 1990-91. Under the NREP and the RLEGP, now merged into the Jawahar Rozgar Yojana, creation of community assets is envisaged apart from the provision of gainful employment. With an outlay of Rs.70.34 lakhs, the Yojana generated 2.95 lakhs man-days of employment upto December, 1989.

Animal Husbandry and Veterinary

        As a source of supplementary income, particularly for people in the rural areas, animal husbandry has an important role in the scheme of development. Emphasis is being given to the improvement of livestock and the strengthening of the extension machinery. The outlay for the sector is being stepped up from Rs.226.50 lakhs in 1989-90 to Rs.281 lakhs in 1990-91. The intensive Cattle Development Projects at Shillong and Tura are being provided with additional facilities and their coverage will be expanded. With the Regional Pig Breeding Farm at Kyrdemkulai now fully functional, piggery development programmes will be given a boost. Departmental cattle, piggery and poultry farms also are being streamlined so as to make them more viable. As in previous years, health cover programmes were continued. The Programmes will be intensified in 1990-91.


        Depletion of the forest wealth and the alarming erosion of soil estimated to be around two million tonnes per year being washed away to Bangladesh and Assam are major areas of concern for the Government. To combat this, a number of steps are being taken up. A massive afforestation programme along with measures to prevent encroachment and illegal felling will be undertaken together with an attempt to restore the green cover with the help of social forestry programmes and soil conservation.

        5,700 hectares were brought under plantation in the course of the last year. Another 3,000 hectares of plantation are proposed for 1990-91, apart from an additional 50 Sq. Kms of reserved forests. A number of parks and gardens were built, including the Lum Nehru Park at Umiam.

Soil Conservation

        The control of shifting cultivation, or jhumming, is a prime objective of the Soil Conservation Department. Greater emphasis will be laid in 1990-91 on weaning away jhummia families from wasteful methods of cultivation. 252 hectares will be developed for permanent cultivation while 900 hectares will be brought under cash crops. 850 jhummia families are likely to be benefited in this manner. Treatment of critical mini watersheds is another priority concern of the Department. During 1990-91, five more watersheds will be taken up for management.


        Increased production of fishseeds will be emphasised in the programmes of the fisheries sector. A Chinese hatchery with a capacity of 3 million fishseeds per annum is expected to go into production in 1990-91. Work on the Regional Fishseed Farm at Jamge in the East Garo Hills District is nearing completion and production is expected to commence in the current year. Schemes for the development of reservoirs are also being undertaken. With the assistance of the North-Eastern Council, a scheme for the  development of Tasek Lake is already under implementation. Another scheme, also under the auspices of the North-Eastern Council, is proposed to be taken up in 1990-91 for the development of the Kyrdemkulai and Nongmahir reservoirs. As in the past, financial assistance will be provided to private pisciculturists Training in modern concepts will also be imparted to them.


        In the Industrial sector sector, a number of units set up with the assistance of the Meghalaya Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) have commenced production, the Meghalaya Electronics Development Corporation (NEDC) has started commercial production of tantalum capacitors and efforts will be made during the year to stabilise production capacity. The mini cement plant in Garo Hills is expected to go into production shortly, to be followed later this year by the mini cement unit in the Jaintia Hills.

        The package scheme of incentives announced earlier has evoked encouraging response. So far, three units in the large and  medium sector  and forty-six units in the small scale sector have availed these incentives. Other promotional measures undertaken include the provision of infrastructural facilities for the Industrial Areas at Barapani and Byrnihat. Entrepreneurship development programmes were also continued.

        A reactivation plan for the Mawmluh-Cherra Cement Limited is now under implementation. The work, which is expected to be completed in three years, will enable the plane to increase production to 165,000 metric tonnes per annum.

Sericulture and Weaving

        The schemes of the Sericulture and Weaving Department are aimed at improvement in the production of quality cocoons. With this end in view, planting materials, worms and appliances were supplied to interested farmers. Nurseries for improved saplings have been established and demonstrations for systematic plantation of food plants were organised. During 1990-91, existing plantations will be improved and additional areas brought under silkworm food plants. Nurseries for mulberry and muga will also be established. Complementary efforts are being made to step up production of quality handloom fabrics. Departmental institutions, among them the weaving training centres and the handloom demonstrator-cum-production centres, are imparting training to local weavers.

        A modernised Handloom Production Centre as also a Handloom Research and Designing Centre will be launched to further facilitate the development of the handloom industry in the State.


        Due to geological problems, work on the Umiam-Umtrew Stage IV Project has been delayed. The project is now expected to be commissioned by the end of 1990-91. Rural electrification works have made further progress and the target of 230 villages for 1989-90 has been fully achieved.

        On the non-conventional energy front, twenty-six solar water heating systems of varying capacities have been commissioned and five more are under installation. Solar photovoltaic lightning systems have been extended to twenty-five new villages. Erection of wind battery charges and construction of bio-gas plants have also been undertaken.

Roads and Bridges

        As in previous years, a sizeable share of the Plan outlay will be earmarked for road construction activities. Against in outlay of Rs.22 crores in 1989-90, the sector will have an outlay of Rs.30 crores in 1990-91. Priority will be given to completion of spill-over schemes of the Sixth and Seventh Plans. While sanctioning new projects, preference will be given to villages rich in agricultural and other resources and where land is available free of cost. By the end of 1990-91, the road length in the State is expected to go up to 5,714 Kms and the road density to 25.65 per 100 Sq. Kms.


        An agency providing a network of road transport services, the Meghalaya Transport Corporation now operates on 53 routes with a fleet of 164 buses. Apart from services linking the district and sub-divisional headquarters and the interior areas, the Corporation has recently started a city bus service for the office-goers of Shillong. Having regard to the terrain of the State, Government are giving serious consideration to the construction of ropeways. Twenty-one such projects have so far been identified. During 1990-91, feasibility studies will be taken up by the North-Eastern Council in respect of four of these. With a view to effectively enforce the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, more weighbridges and the check-gates are proposed to be installed in different parts of the State. The enforcement machinery is also being strengthened.

Mining and Geology

        Besides investigations in to the incidence of coal, limestone and kaolin deposits, the Mining and Geology Department is engaged in the collection of the cess on minerals. Two Divisional Mining Offices have been set up recently at Jowai and Williamnagar to facilitate collection of the cess. With the Meghalaya Mineral Development Corporation having been permitted to export coal directly to Bangladesh, the Department is now involved in foreign trade operations. So far, 20,000 tonnes of coal have been exported, but contracts for more than one lakh tonnes have been finalised.


        With a view to realise the objective of the State White Paper on Education, appropriate follow-up action was taken. 1000 LP School building were constructed with the help of funds made available by the Eighth and Ninth Finance Commissions and under Operation Blackboard.  Another 600 are under construction. More than 1300 Second Teachers were appointed in Single Teacher Primary Schools with this assistance. During 1990-91, teachers will be provided for about 150 schools to be set up in school-less villages.

        At the secondary and higher secondary level, steps are being taken to revise the  curriculum and text books so as to fall in line with the national education pattern. Further, vocational streams are being introduced in selected trades. 26 High Schools and 38 ME Schools were brought under the salary deficit scheme in 1989-90. 7 High and ME Schools were also provincialised during this period. At the college level, revised UGC scales besides other concessions were extended to the lecturers of all Government and deficit colleges.

Sports and Youth Affairs

        The Sports and Youth Affairs Department continued its efforts for the development of sports and games in the State. At the district and sub-divisional headquarters, work on the construction of sports stadium is progressing satisfactorily. Steps are being taken also to identify and nurture sports talents. Sixteen boys and one girl have been selected by the Sports Authority of India for free education and training. The State teams participated with success in a number of regional and national events. Particular mention may be made of the State Junior Football Team which was declared joint-winner in the recently concluded National Junior Football Championship at Shillong.

Health and Family Welfare

        In pursuance of the goals set by the National Health Policy, Government are actively  engaged in developing a comprehensive health care delivery system for the benefit of the people. A number of primary health centres and sub-centres were made operation during 1989-90. The Ganesh Das Hospital has been renovated and work on a second storey and a 100-bedded Paediatric Ward is nearing completion. Special efforts are being made to contain the problem of infant and maternal mortality with the implementation of the Universal Immunisation Programme and the Oral Rehydration Therapy Programme, Medical and Health Officers have been posted in all the sub divisions and the quality and content of health services is expected to  improve considerably. With a view to encourage specialisation, rules for deputation for higher studies have been relaxed.

Public Health Engineering

        Provision of potable drinking water continues to be a priority concern of the Government. By March, 1989, 2,844 villages had been provided with water supply. Coverage of 500 villages was envisaged in the programme for 1989-90, with another 750 proposed for 1990-91. Work on the rain water harvesting schemes is continuing. 80 villages are proposed to be covered during the year. In the urban sector, work on the design of a new distribution system for Shillong is progressing satisfactorily, the preliminary report has since been submitted by the consultant and the final report is expected shortly.


        Having regard to the tourist potential of the State, emphasis was laid in the Seventh Plan on developing the necessary infrastructure for attracting tourists. A number of projects taken up earlier are now ready to be commissioned. Among them, the Hotel Unit at Umiam and the restaurant-cum-Rest House at Cherrapunjee merit particular mention. The Floating Sports Deck at Umiam, the first of its kind in the North-east, was commissioned recently. Acting as a catalyst, the State Tourism Department plans to encourage the private sector to supplement the efforts of the Government in this regard. The Department also has plans to diversify tourism.


        The implementation of the New Housing Scheme for the economical weaker sections and the low income groups has started gathering momentum. During 1989-90, an amount of Rs.165.50 lakhs was earmarked for the scheme. During 1990-91, an outlay of Rs.254 lakhs will be available. The number of beneficiaries is expected to go up from 1,800 in 1989-90 to 2,400 in the current year. With a view to strengthen the organisation for implementation of housing schemes, Government have decided to merge the Directorate of Housing with the State Housing Board. The merger is likely to take effect soon.

Social Welfare

        Schemes for the welfare of women, Children, the handicapped, the infirm and the delinquents are implemented by the Social Welfare Department. So far, twenty Integrated Child Development Services schemes have been implemented. It is expected that another ten such schemes will be sanctioned by the Government of India in the Eighth Plan period enabling coverage of the entire State. Juvenile delinquents are being taken care of in the Children's Home, Shillong. Under the Supplementary Nutrition Programme, 70,034 children and expectant and lactating mothers were benefited during 1989-90. As in previous years, financial assistance was given to voluntary organisations working for the welfare of women and children.

District Councils

        During 1989-90, an amount of Rs.70 lakhs was provided from the State Plan for the assistance of the District Councils. During 1990-91, an amount of Rs.150 lakhs will be provided. Assistance is being given to the Councils from the Non-Plan budget also. During 1990-91, Rs.40.71 lakhs is proposed to be given on Non-Plan account.

Urban Affairs

        Despite financial constraints, the Municipal Boards have been able to undertake and complete some developmental works, including installations of water tanks, construction of roads and foot-paths and provisions of street lights. Government will have to continue, however, to provide financial assistance to these local bodies.

        Concerted efforts are being made for the preparation of development plans for all towns in the State. The Shillong Master Plan is likely to be approved shortly. Plans for Jowai and Tura also are proposed to be taken up soon. Schemes for the provision of basic amenities, such as street lightning, drainage and parking places, were implemented in the urban areas particularly the State capital. Considering the acute traffic congestion in the state, a scientific study of the problem was undertaken. An interim report in this regard has been received and short-term measures are under examination. With a view to achieve more effective coordination in the implementation of urban Development and the Municipal Administration Departments into a single Department to be known as the Urban Affairs Department.

Border Areas Development

        Schemes catering to the special needs of the people in the border areas are implemented under the auspices of the Border Areas Development Department. During 1989-90, an amount of Rs.2.00 lakhs was utilised for the purpose. These schemes will be continued in the current year with an outlay of Rs.210 lakhs.

Programme Implementation

        The Programme Implementation Department discharged its assigned role of monitoring the plan schemes of various development departments. Eleven review meetings were held and necessary follow-up action was taken. The Department is the nodal authority for all public enterprises in the State and a Public Enterprises Cell has been set up in the Department to facilitate this work. The Department is the nodal authority also for all computerisation programmes in the Government, including the Meghalaya unit of NICNET.

Other Programmes

        Sir, I have given a brief outline of the policies and programmes of the Government for1990-91. The Plan Supplement will provide details of the various schemes proposed to be undertaken during the year.

Ninth Finance Commission

        Hon'ble Members are aware that the second and final report of the Ninth Finance Commission was placed before Parliament on the 12th March, 1990. The Government of India have accepted the Commission's recommendations. Unlike the assessments made by previous Commissions on the basis of historic trends, the Ninth Finance Commission was required by its terms of reference to make assessments on a normative basis. The special category States had jointly represented to the Commission that the needs of these States should be considered separately and that all India norms should not be applied to them. While taking note of the distinct problems faced by these States, the Commission has emphasised the need to curb non-plan expenditure, as also to maximise revenues. The Commission has accordingly adopted in respect of these States growth rate of 11.5 per cent for receipts and 7 per cent for expenditure.

        According to the recommendations of the Ninth Finance Commission as accepted by the Government of India, the Government of Meghalaya will receive by way of share of central taxes and grants-in-aid an amount of Rs.814.39 crores during the period 1990-91 to 1994-95. The recommended transfer is 113.27 per cent higher than that recommended by the Eighth Finance Commission. The State will also receive during this period a grant of Rs.7.50 crores towards meeting relief expenditure. For 1990-91, the Commission has recommended a transfer of Rs.147.05 crores on account of share of central taxes and grants-in-aid as against Rs.111.74 crores recommended for 1989-90 in its first report, as the growth rate of out non-plan revenue expenditure has been very high in the past, it will be difficult immediately to bring down the rate of growth to the level recommended by the Commission over a period of time.

        I would now like to give a brief account of the actuals for 1988-89 and the revised estimates for 1989-90 before indicating the estimates for 1990-91.

Actuals, 1988-89

        During 1988-89, receipts and expenditure on all accounts were Rs.1,959.76 crores and Rs.1,973.69 crores respectively, leaving a deficit of Rs.13.93 crores. The year, which had opened with a negative opening balance of Rs.21.99 crores thus closed with a deficit of Rs.35.92 crores. However on the 31st March, 1989, the State Government held an amount of Rs.75.86 crores in Government of India Treasury Bills.

Revised Estimates, 1989-90

        After taking note of the amount held in Treasury bills, total receipts during 1989-90 on all accounts are estimated at Rs.2,076.11 crores, while expenditure is estimated at Rs.2,016.39 crores resulting in a surplus of Rs.59.72 crores. This surplus will not only wipe out the negative opening balance of Rs.35.92 crores, but is also likely to leave a net surplus of Rs.23.80 crores.

Budget Estimate, 1990-91

        During 1990-91, receipts on revenue account are estimated at Rs.372.30 crores, while expenditure is estimated at Rs.334.01 crores. A surplus of Rs.38.29 crores is thus expected on revenue account. Outside the revenue account, receipts and expenditure are estimated at Rs.1,719.39 crores and Rs.1,806.43 crores respectively, leaving a deficit of Rs.87.40 crores which will be reduced to Rs.48.75 crores by the estimated revenue surplus of Rs.38.29 crores. The estimated deficit of Rs.48.75 crores will be further reduced to Rs.24.95 crores due to the estimated opening surplus of Rs.23.80 crores. The broad details are indicated at Annexure II.

        Additional Resource Mobilisation & measures to cover deficit.

        With a view to reduce the estimated deficit to the extent possible, it is proposed to raise additional resources through the following measures :

(1) Increase in the Licence fees for outskills and commercial spirit.
(2) Turnover tax.
(3) Increase of GPF contribution from the minimum of 6 1/4% to 8 1/3% of basic pay.
(4) Checking evasion of Central Sales Tax.
(5) Rationalisation of taxes on vehicles.
(6) Increase in stamp duties, registration fees and court fees.

        These measures are expected to yield an additional revenue of Rs.4.12  crores. This will enable the State Government to bring down the deficit to Rs.20.83 crores. With a view to bridge the gap, it will be essential for the State Government to curtail all unnecessary and unproductive expenditure. At this point, I may refer to the estimates adopted by the Ninth Finance Commission in respect of the State's non-plan revenue expenditure. These are generally lower than our own estimates are reflected in the budget documents. To reduce the deficit further, I propose to impose a cut in the non-plan expenditure of the concerned Departments so as to bring them in line with the level assessed by the Commission, to the extent possible. It will also be necessary to make a realistic assessment of the manpower requirement of each and every Department of the Government. I am confident that with the cooperation of all concerned, it will be possible to check wasteful expenditure, improve productivity and substantially reduce the deficit.

        With these words, Sir, I beg to present the Budget Estimates for 1990-91 to this august House for approval. Hon'ble Members are aware that an Ordinance was promulgated by the Governor on the 28th March, 1990 to allow withdrawal of certain sums from the Consolidated Fund of the State. As the present Session will be a short one, it will not be possible for the Hon'ble Members to complete discussions on the Budget Estimates. I propose, therefore, that the House may grant a Vote-on-Account to defray necessary expenses for the period upto 30th June, 1990. The Vote-on-Account to be granted and the relevant Appropriation Act will replace the said Ordinance.
