Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee on Saturday said there is no policy paralysis and the central government has been taking tough decisions like issuing Presidential directive to Coal India to supply fuel to power companies.
"There is no policy paralysis. I would like make it quite clear, a large number of decisions have been taken," he said while speaking at the award function of UTV Bloomberg in Mumbai.
Mukherjee said a Presidential directive was recently issued to state-owned Coal India to ensure supply of coal to power sector companies.
"Take the case of manufacturing policy, take the case of decisions of group of ministers to remove the constraints of fuel supply to the power ministry and ultimately leading to the presidential direction to CIL. These are just few instances," he said while replying to a question related to policy paralysis.
The government also came up with a new nutrient based fertiliser policy, he said, adding "announcement of the policy, its implementation and yield from the policy...it takes some time. There is a gap but there is no policy paralysis as such".
