IN the article 'Fiscal Correction and Human Resource Development' (March 26), the authors' conclusion about central government expenditure is not in line with the data. Combination of the realised expenditure of the first two fiscal years of the present government (1991-92 and 1992-93) and the planned expenditure of the last fiscal year (1993-94) shows a 15 per cent real increase of plan and non-plan HRD expenditure (6 per cent compared to 1989-90). This should be put against the background of a real (plan and non-plan) decrease in expenditure of more than 18 per cent, compared to 1990-91. The HRD expenditure increase has resulted in a sharp increase (although from a low level) in the share of HRD expenditure in total expenditure of 41 per cent (29 per cent compared to 1989-90).
