New Delhi, July 10 (IANS) — Finance Minister Arun Jaitley Thursday hiked the budget for the administration of justice by a mere Rs.74.1 crore over and above the allocation made in the revised budget estimates for 2013-14.

While in the revised budget estimate for 2013-14, the total allocation was Rs.1,973.15 crore, for the current financial year, it has been increased to Rs.2,047.25 crore under the plan and non-plan allocations.

The provision for the infrastructural facilities for judiciary has been shifted to states and union territories plan.

An amount of Rs.782.40 have been earmarked for the infrastructural facilities for judiciary in the states and Rs.60 crore earmarked for the grant-in-aid for the union territories.

The northeastern region and Sikkim have been allocated a lumpsum allocation of Rs.93.60 crore for the projects/schemes.
