poverty is around 30 per cent of the population.
According to commission Deputy Chairperson Montek Singh Ahluwalia, health and education sectors are
major thrust areas and the outlays for these in the plan have been raised.
The outlay on health would include increased spending in related areas of drinking water and sanitation.
The commission had accepted Finance Minister P. Chidambaram's suggestion that direct cash transfer of
subsidies in food, fertilizers and petroleum be made by the end of the 12th Plan period
After the cabinet clearance, the plan for its final approval would be placed before the National Development
Council (NDC), which has all chief ministers and cabinet ministers as members and is headed by the Prime
Minister.
Agriculture
Agriculture in the current plan period has grown at 3.3 percent, compared to 2.4 percent during the 10th plan period.
The growth target for manufacturing sector has been pegged at 10 percent.
Infrastructure
The document stresses the importance of infrastructure development, especially in the power sector, and removal of
bottlenecks for high growth and inclusiveness. It also sets targets for various economic and social sectors relating to
poverty alleviation, infant mortality, enrolment ratio and job creation.
Poverty
On poverty alleviation, the commission plans to bring down the poverty ratio by 10 percent. At present, the poverty
is around 30 per cent of the population.
Health and Education
According to commission Deputy Chairperson Montek Singh Ahluwalia, health and education sectors are major
thrust areas and the outlays for these in the plan have been raised.
The outlay on health would include increased spending in related areas of drinking water and sanitation.
The commission had accepted Finance Minister P. Chidambaram's suggestion that direct cash transfer of subsidies in
food, fertilizers and petroleum be made by the end of the 12th Plan period.
Direct cash transfers would bring down the government's subsidy burden as the money would go directly to the
"genuine" beneficiaries and "plug leakages" in the implementation of these schemes.
After the cabinet clearance, the plan for its final approval would be placed before the National Development Council
(NDC), which has all chief ministers and cabinet ministers as members and is headed by the Prime Minister.
