          It may be observed from the above tables that the allocations received from Ministry of Finance are not as per projections made, however, based on pace of expenditure, pending committed liabilities etc., additional funds are sought during the course of the financial year at appropriate stages. It is further submitted that, if necessary, re- prioritization is undertaken to ensure that urgent and critical capabilities are acquired without any compromise to operational preparedness of the Defence Services.

 

This information was tabled in a written reply by Raksha Rajya Mantri Shri Shripad Naik to a question asked by Shri K C Venugopal and Shri Mallikarjun Kharge in Rajya Sabha today.
