February 24 2014 : Chief Minister Okram Ibobi who is also in charge of Finance Department today tabled a tentative budget estimate for the financial year 2014-15 .
As a new Government would be set up at the Centre after the 16th Lok Sabha election, a definite plan outlay for the next financial year could not be fixed as yet.

The tentative budget estimate was tabled for taking Vote of Accounts so that the State Government can make necessary expenditures for the months of April to July this year with due approval of the House.

Tabling the tentative budget estimate, leader of the House O Ibobi stated that the Government is expecting Rs 7993.65 crore including Rs 7447.43 crore from revenue receipt and another Rs 456.22 crore from public account receipt during the financial year 2014-15.Figures for revenue and capital receipts under Plan are still tentative.

The estimated annual receipt will undergo some changes when the annual plan outlay is fixed, Ibobi stated.

It is estimated that the Government would get Rs 560.73 crore from the State's own taxes and another Rs 284.08 crore from non-tax receipt during the next financial year.

Revenue expected from value added tax is Rs 439.90 crore.

Tax share receipt estimated according to the central budget for 2014-15 is Rs 1753.36 crore.

The State would get Rs 1428.65 crore from the 13th Finance Commission and this include revenue deficit.

Expenditure estimates for 2014-15 are Rs 2643 from Plan sector, Rs 4975 from non-Plan head and Rs 622.39 crore from the remaining balance of central plan schemes and NEC schemes.

The total figure of estimated expenditures is Rs 8240.39 crore.

Even as the Chief Minister proposed a tentative plan outlay of Rs 2643 for 2014-15, he maintained that the figure would change after consulting the Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission.

Fiscal deficit during the year 2014-15, as calculated based on the tentative estimates, would be Rs 514.48 crore which is 3.43 per cent of the Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP) .

Manipur mother’s 5.9kg baby India’s heaviest

IMPHAL: A woman from Manipur's Thoubal district has given birth to a girl weighing 5.9 kg at the state-run Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS) hospital in Imphal East, setting a record for delivering the country's heaviest baby.
M Shenu Devi (37) gave birth to the baby, her fourth child, on Friday night around 7.25 pm through caesarean section. The team that helped her deliver the baby was headed by Kh Paikhomba Singh, assistant professor at the department of obstetrics and gynecology.

"Considering the extraordinary size of the baby, our team, including the anesthetist, another gynecologist and nurses, performed the caesarean section with utmost care. We were successful," Paikhomba said.
"No congenital anomaly has been detected in the baby girl whose body length (height) is 56 cms. Both mother and child are in sound health," Paikhomba said, adding that the previous national record was set in 2010 by a Surat-born baby girl weighing 5.7 kg.
The normal weight of a newborn baby in the country is around 3 kg, Paikhomba said. He added that the formalities to officially declare the Manipuri baby as the heaviest are being processed.

The mother, a housewife, will be discharged within the next few days. Her husband Maipakchao (45) of Kakching Khunou village teaches at a private school. The parents expressed heartfelt gratitude to the team of doctors for successfully performing the surgery. A large number of people, mostly hospital staff and people visiting other patients, assembled to get a glimpse of the record-holding baby.

The heaviest baby ever born in the world weighed 10.8 kg (23 Ib 12 oz) in Canada in 1879, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Sadly, the baby died eleven hours later.
