Often unutilised’ ADP?gets record Rs220bBy: Ashraf Javed | Published: June 11, 2011

LAHORE – The Punjab government has allocated a record amount of Rs220 billion under the Annual Development Programme (ADP) for the fiscal year 2011-12 as compared to last year’s Rs193.5 billion.
The ADP allocation is estimated as 34 per cent of the total outlay of the budget, presented here Friday by the PML-N led government as it unveiled its fourth consecutive budget in the Punjab Assembly.
Financial experts say that every year the government fixes a record amount for the ADP but a major chunk of the allocations remains unutilised due to one or another reason.
The government in Punjab, country’s largest province, is focusing on social sector uplift by laying a particular emphasis on education and health sectors, followed by infrastructure development, production and agriculture. The government has allocated Rs188 billion for new development projects.
This year, the government has allocated Rs29.2 billion for the “Special Programme/Packages” that means the government would spend Rs1.5 billion for three new medical colleges to be set up in the province.
Similarly, under this (special programme) initiative, the government has earmarked Rs1.2 billion for Lahore Ring Road, Rs12 billion for District/TMA Development Programme in the province, Rs9 billion as special package for Coal Based Thermal Power Generation and Rs2 billion and Rs3.5 billion for district package-I and district package-II for eight and seven districts respectively.
As per sector-wise budget details, a huge amount of Rs71.635 billion has been earmarked for the Social Sector while Rs59 billion would be spent on Infrastructure Development. A sum of Rs23.9 billion have been allocated for the education sector in the province out of which Rs14.5 billion have been earmarked for School Education, Rs6.5 billion for Higher Education, Rs500 million for Special Education, Rs800 million for literacy and Rs1.6 billion for sports.

Ring Road: Southern Loop in limbo after Chinese deny funding

LAHORE: The Punjab government has been left without funding for the Southern Loop of the Lahore Ring Road after the Chinese refused to pay for the construction of the road, The Express Tribune has learned.

The government had been negotiating with the Chinese to seek investment for the construction of the remaining 48 kilometres of the Southern Loop and hoped to clinch a deal by this April. But when Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif visited China earlier this year, the investors showed more of an interest in the proposed Lahore Rapid Mass Transit System than the Ring Road. The government tried to convince the Chinese to invest on a build-operate-transfer basis or a public-private partnership, but failed.

An official of the Project Management Unit confirmed that the Chinese had refused to give any financial assistance for the completion of the Ring Road. Work on the Southern Loop was expected to start as soon as the funds were released as a feasibility report had already been conducted, he said. The project is divided into two parts, SL-1 and SL-2, and the government only has funding for the former, he said.

Nadeem Hassan Asif, Lahore’s commissioner and the project director for the Lahore Ring Road, denied that the Chinese had refused to fund SL-1. “Various options are under consideration and negotiations [with investors] are underway,” he said. Asked to elaborate, he said that he could not “at this stage”. He said the construction of the road would start soon but could not say exactly when. He said the construction of the Northern Loop would be finished in July.

The Punjab government has allocated Rs1.2 billion in the 2011-12 budget for the Ring Road. This money will be used to complete the Northern Loop and to start work on SL-1, an 8.5-km stretch of road from the Sui Gas Housing Society to Gajjumatta. The cost of the land for SL-1 is estimated at Rs4.995 billion and the construction cost at Rs4.069 billion. An interchange will be constructed at Ferozepur Road. Access roads and slip roads will also be constructed near the Ashiana housing scheme. Work on land acquisition for SL-l has started.

The construction of SL-1 is expected to ease the heavy traffic on Ferozepur Road, as well as Ghazi Road, by diverting traffic headed for GT Road towards the Ravi or Saggian Interchange.

sad news as funds in this budget are diverted to other projects. Atleast this will make critics of Lahore Rind road quiet.
