In the circular issued on 4 September, the Department of Expenditure, which comes under the Ministry of Finance, banned certain non-developmental expenditures “to ensure the availability of sufficient resources to meet the needs of critical priority schemes”.
In the document, the Center also announced “a ban on the creation of new posts in Ministries / Departments, attached offices, subordinate offices, statutory bodies and autonomous bodies, besides the approval of the Department of Expenditure”.
Mr. Gandhi, who was critical to the center’s handling of the coronovirus situation, gave the government a slogan on the circular.
“The Modi government’s thinking is minimal government, maximum privatization. Kovid is just an excuse, the government’s plan is to free the government offices of all permanent employees, steal the future of the youth and advance their own friends,” Mr. Gandhi is sharing a news report in a Hindi tweet.
India’s GDP or GDP was 23.9 percent in the April-June period – far worse than economists had estimated, official data showed last month, as the coronovirus epidemic stalled key industries and left millions unemployed.
