1.We had asked for Rs.10,000 crore for our 12th Five Year Plan from 2012 to 2017 as we had plans to spend that amount and our expenditure has been 100 per cent every year. But, we received only 50 per cent of the budget allocation we requested. Many of our projects are not on track and I am hopeful that the current budget session will address the issue,” Soumya Swaminathan, who took over as the Director General of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR)said during a media interaction.

2.Speaking about the lack of credible baseline data informing the vector-borne disease control policy, she said that the institute was working towards an elimination programme that would factor in the discrepancies in data.
