Budget for Children 2016-17, Not even halfway through its demographic dividend


HAQ: Centre for Child Rights has come out with Quick Analysis of Budgets for Children (BfC) 2016-17. The share of children in the Union Budget 2016-17 goes up to 3.32%, a slight increase from 3.26% in the year 2015-16. Although this small increase is welcome after the drastic decrease of almost 30% which we saw last year, it still does not compensate for the falling share of children in the budget over the years.
