The 82nd union budget of Indian government is all for the betterment of education in India. This is welcomed, by students, educationalists and experts, as a positive charm. Since education funds have been increased, 17% higher budgetary allocation will surely accentuate priority for Utter Pradesh in all the programmes.
Experts from the field of education assess a grant of over Rs 100 crore each to Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) and Banaras Hindu University (BHU). This decision, however, is evaluated as a step to balance than to rationalize.
Experienced educationist, Professor Mohammad Muzammil, said that budgetary allocations always depend upon the number of beneficiaries. Utter Pradesh having relatively higher number of students is what entitles it to a bigger share in the budget.
On the same note, he said, UP is a direct beneficiary in institutions of excellence and will have it share in INTACH that has been granted Rs 100 crore for its development. Always emphasizing on high population of the State, Prof Muzammil said that it will and should benefit quantitatively.
