Chief Khalsa Diwan today passed the annual budget of Rs 157.35 crore for 2023-24 with primary focus on construction and development of CKD schools. General house meet, presided over by CKD president Dr Inderbir Singh Nijjer, said that there had been a 15 per cent increase in the total income of the Chief Khalsa Diwan this year compared to the previous financial year, while in terms of expenses this year, it is estimated that there will be an increase of 32 per cent over the previous year. He said the increase in expenditure was a very meaningful and positive sign which was an indicator of setting new boundaries for progress.
