Aizawl, March 19 (PTI): Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga on Tuesday presented vote on account for the first four months commencing from April amounting to INR 3,588.85 crore in the state Assembly.

Presenting the vote on account, Zoramthanga, who also holds charge of the Finance portfolio said, “I am deeply conscious of the inconvenience to present a regular budget due to the enforcement of model code of conduct for the coming general election.”

He said that Mizoram was witnessing significant progress in terms of economic and social progress with the GSDP projected to be at INR 22,238.92 at current price at a growth rate of 12.5 per cent which is estimated at the same growth rate from 2017-18 to 2018-19.

“The projected growth rate is considered remarkable as compared to the national growth rate of 7.3 per cent,” he said.

Zoramthanga also presented Supplementary Demands for grants for the current financial year amounting to INR 2,926.55 crore and also sought regularisation of excess expenditure of INR 813.76 crore for 2012-13 to 2015-16.
