Parliament on Tuesday passed the supplementary budget of Tk 9508.57 crore for fiscal 2014-15 to meet the increased expenditure under different ministries.
State Minister for Finance MA Mannan, on behalf of Finance Minister AMA Muhith, placed the supplementary budget in the House for its passage.
Mannan moved the Appropriation (Supplemen-tary) Bill 2015, which was approved by the House by voice votes allowing the government to spend Tk 95,085,712,000 from the consolidated fund to meet the expenditure of the current fiscal year that ends on June 30.  Different ministries, divisions and institutions sought the additional amount under 22 demands for grant. As many as 170 cut-motions were moved by eight members.
Discussions were held on six cut-motions, brought by independent lawmakers Haji M Selim (Dhaka-7), Rustam Ali Farazi (Pirojpur-3), Jatiya Party lawmakers Fakhrul Imam (Mymensingh-8), Nurul Islam Milon (Comilla-8) and Nurul Islam Omar (Bogra-6).
However, those cut-motions were rejected by voice votes.
According to the budget document, a sum of Tk 250,506 crore was allocated in favour of 59 ministries and divisions for the 2014-15 fiscal. But in the supplementary budget, allocation for 27 ministries and divisions has been increased to Tk 9,508.57 crore while Tk 23,006.95 reduced for 32 ministries and divisions.      ?UNB
