A February 4 story, headlined ‘23% dip in infra funds despite emphasis in Goyal’s speech,’ erroneously reported that the budgetary allocation for infrastructure declined from Rs.5.97 lakh crore in the financial year 2018-19 to Rs.4.56 lakh crore in 2019-20.
The story should have said the budgetary allocation for infrastructure rose from Rs.5.97 lakh crore in 2018-19 to Rs.6.46 lakh crore in 2019-20, including ₹4.63 lakh crore of extra budgetary support.
The headline should have mentioned an 8.2% rise.
The errors are regretted.
