VIENNA-Confrontation with a Difference

sum of Rs 45 crores (and not Rs 28.34 crores only) should be spent between 1968-74 over and above the amounts that would be available to the region through the State's budget and the Five-Year Plan, and that the Centre itself would provide loan assistance to the State Government for the purpose, is, therefore, a significant concession to the requirements of the Telengana situation.
