EDUCATION- Calling the Tune without Paying the Piper

resources and facilities that have been built up in the educational institutions, particularly in the Indian Institutes of Technology, are not being utilised to the full because the requisite operational budgets are not being approved by the government. Haksar has drawn attention to this problem by saying that as far as scientific programmes are concerned, the distinction between Plan and non-Plan expenditure is artificial.

Hopefully, Haksar might initiate some changes in the funding and financial control of scientific programmes.
