The Delhi Police have reason to cheer. Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee has allocating an extra Rs. 526.58 crore for them in the next fiscal year.

Their budget for the current financial year is Rs. 3,967.33 crore.

Delhi Police have been given an extra Rs. 20 lakh for the secret service fund, while the total budget for informers has been increased from Rs. 40 lakh to Rs. 60 lakh.

The Delhi Police, however, have got only R60 crore for the CCTV project. "We will get rest of the amount as part of a supplementary scheme," a senior police officer said.

Housing and police building projects have also been given a boost, with Mukherjee substantially increasing allocation under both heads to R260.50 crore from previous years' Rs. 31 crore.

In comparison to last year's Rs. 10 crore, housing projects will get Rs. 62 crore, while police building projects will get Rs. 198.50 crore - a big increase from last year's Rs. 21 crore.

Budgetary provisions for developing a traffic and communication network and a model traffic system has been brought down from Rs. 82 crore to Rs. 20 crore.
