CDGR urged to reform budget making process

RAWALPINDI – Citizens Network for Budget Accountability (CNBA) and Centre for Peace and Development (CPDI) have urged the City District Government Rawalpindi (CDGR) to reform the budget making process at the district level. The district governments should follow the budget rules to make the budget document transparent to public, they suggested. Talking to media persons, Syed Kausar Abbas, programme manager CPDI and CNBA, on Tuesday urged the district finance and planning department to engage the citizens to make the budget making process transparent.
said the budget document was a public document and it should be shared with the citizens to get their feedback on the budget allocated for their district.
He said that the district officials hesitated to share the information about the budget making process as well as the budget document with citizens. The budget document should be made easy for the citizens. He urged the citizens to take active part in the budget making process to hold the public expenditures accountable. The expenditures of the budget should be shared with the citizens on regular basis and feedback mechanism should be enhanced to ensure the public participation in the budget making process.
