The allotment is a 3.73% increase from the previous fiscal year

Law enforcement agencies received a mammoth allotment in the proposed budget for the 2020-21 fiscal year, with the public order and safety sector alone getting 5.04% (Tk28,670 crore) of the Tk568,000 budget.

The allotment is a 3.73% increase from the previous fiscal year.

According to the proposed budget placed by Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal at parliament on Thursday, the Public Security Division under the Home Ministry, which includes all law enforcement agencies, will receive a Tk22,660 crore allotment, as compared to Tk21,923 crore in the last fiscal year.

However, the development budget for the Public Security Division has been reduced by Tk271 crore to Tk1,895 crore. In the previous fiscal year, Tk 2,166 core was allocated for the development of the Public Security Division.

On the other hand, the allocation for the Security Services Division has been proposed at Tk3,858 crore, as opposed to Tk 3,694 crore in the previous fiscal year. Of the amount, Tk1,345 crore will be allocated for the development of the sector, down from Tk 1,585 crore in the previous fiscal year.

The Public Security and Security Services divisions were formed in 2017 after splitting the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Furthermore, Tk223 crore has been proposed for the operation of the Supreme Court, an increase of Tk28 crore from the previous fiscal year. However, the highest court of the country did not get an allocation for development this time.

This public order and safety sector includes the Supreme Court, Law and Justice Division, Public Security Division, Legislative and Parliamentary Affairs Division, Anti-Corruption Commission, and Security Division.

Tk34,427 crore for Defence Ministy

The Ministry of Defence has been allocated Tk 34,427 crore, which is Tk2,327 crore more than the previous fiscal year.

The Armed Forces Division is set to receive Tk41 crore, with no development expenditure.
