Of the total budget allocation, Tk2,166 has been proposed for the development alone, which is Tk908 crore more than the last fiscal

Law enforcement agencies are getting a mammoth allotment in the proposed budget for the fiscal year 2018-19, as the public order and safety sector alone will get 5.3% (Tk27,636 crore) of the Tk5,231.90 billion budget, rising 3.78% from the previous fiscal. 

According to the budget proposal placed by the AHM Mustafa Kamal in parliament on Thursday, the Public Security Division under the Home Ministry, which includes all law enforcement agencies, will receive a Tk21,922 crore allotment, which was Tk21,406 crore in the last fiscal.

Of the total budget allocation, Tk2,166 has been proposed for the development alone, which is Tk908 crore more than the last fiscal.

On the other hand, allocation for the Security Services Division has been proposed at Tk3,694 crore, which was Tk3,334 crore in the previous fiscal. Of this, Tk1,585 crore will be allocated for the development of the sector, up from Tk1,251 crore in the previous fiscal. 

These two divisions -- the Public Security and the Security Services divisions– were made in 2017 after splitting the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Kamal, a businessman-turned politician, unveiled his first national budget of the fiscal year 2019-20 at the parliament on Thursday.

Tk195 crore has been proposed for the Supreme Court for its operation, with an increase of Tk15 crore over the previous fiscal. The highest court of the country however has not been allocated any development budget this year.

This Public Order and Safety sector includes the Supreme Court, Law and Justice Division, Public Security Division, Legislative and Parliamentary Affairs Division, Anti-Corruption Commission, and Security Division.

On the other hand, the Ministry of Defence has been allocated Tk32,520 crore, which is Tk3,454 crore more than the previous fiscal.
