One month without expenditure
Imphal Sept 1: Manipur's Finance Bill which was passed by both houses of Parliament is yet to get the assent of the President of India, further delaying payment of salaries and government expenditure for the Manipur government.

Earlier, the 4 month Vote-on Account passed during the time of the popular regime had lapsed on July 31 and the state administration was automatically barred from spending a single paise.

State officials say, the administration had submitted the budget papers in time but somehow it got stuck in the parliament till it was passed at the last moment.

Meanwhile, Manipur's overdraft has reached Rupees 132 crores as of today.
