Following is a report from expressbuzz.com:

The State Government has provided Rs 510 crore under the Biju KBK Yojana (BKY) and to the Western Orissa Development Council (WODC) since 2005-06.

Out of this, Rs 260 crore has been provided under the BKY while Rs 250 crore was allocated for the WODC. However, funds from BKY were not distributed equally among all the districts.

While the lowest allocation of Rs 17 crore has gone to the Nuapada district during the last three years, the highest provision of Rs 45 crore each was made for Koraput and Balangir districts.

Official sources, however, dismissed this discrepancy saying that the size of the district and projects approved by the district planning committees are taken into account while finalising the allocations.

Provisions for other districts under BKY include: Malkangiri-Rs 23 crore, Nabarangpur-Rs 32.5 crore, Rayagada-Rs 35.5 crore, Subarnapur-Rs 20 crore and Kalahandi-Rs 42 crore.

The State Government has made a provision of Rs 28.5 crore for two similar programmes, the Biju Kandhamal and Biju Gajapati Yojanas in the supplementary budgets. The allocation for the WODC has, however, increased over the years. While it was Rs 50 crore in 2006-07, this has increased to Rs 100 crore in 2008-09.
