Child Budgeting in India: Analysis of Recent Allocations in the Union Budget

  • 2006

This paper contains an analysis of the Union Budget for the past five years on Child Budgeting, with a view to improve awareness and stimulating debate on the way forward for children in India. Without a clear understanding of our outlays for children, we will not be able to make as much headway in improving outcomes for them. A healthy resource envelope, along with improved procedures to ensure expenditure, better evidence of gaps and needs, and better design, planning, implementation and monitoring, can help us realise the translation of our outlays into the outcomes children deserve.
