New Delhi, Feb 26 (IANS) The funds for Delhi Police have been cut by nearly Rs.16 crore for the coming fiscal in the 2010-11 budget presented by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee Friday.
The force has been given Rs.125.20 crore for plan expenditure and Rs.2,833.93 crore for non-plan expenditure. Last year, the plan and non-plan expenditures were Rs.106.95 crore and Rs.2,868 crore respectively.
