Budget 2016 is very optimistic towards the development of rural India. More skill development institutes, Navodaya schools, Crop Insurance, focus on improving irrigation facilities, increased spend on MNREGA are welcome. The allotment of funds for encouraging women entrepreneurship as a part of Stand Up India is also heartening. But there is no mention of improving Quality of education in both Government Schools and Private Schools. The budget has not focused on long term issues and is a very superficial one.
