The city administration has eliminated 10 programs in the revised 2018 budget through the general regional budget amendment policy (KUPA) and temporary regional budget priority and ceiling amendment (PPAS), with an eye to increasing the draft budget to Rp 83.2 trillion, an official has stated.

“We’ve cut 10 programs, with the greatest reduction in direct expenditures,” acting Jakarta Planning and Development Agency (Bappeda) head Subagiyo said on Tuesday, as quoted by kompas.com.

Among the axed programs are the Rp 1.3 trillion (US$90,561) low-cost apartment development project, the Rp 114 billion public facility improvement project for 15 regional public service agencies (BLUD) and the Rp 87 billion water system projects in eastern part of Jakarta.

Despite the cuts, however, the KUPA-PPAS amendments have increased the revised city budget by Rp 6 trillion from the 2018 city budget that was approved last year. “The city budget has increased from Rp 77.1 trillion to Rp 83.2 trillion in the revised budget,” Jakarta secretary Saefullah was quoted as saying on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the city’s income target has decreased to Rp 65.8 trillion in the revised budget from the initial target of Rp 66 trillion in the original budget. (stu)
