Delhi Outcome budget: The hits & misses

The report mapped the progress of 'output indicators', which are the services and infrastructure that a department is supposed to provide, and 'outcome indicators', which explained how people benefited from them.

The Delhi government’s status report on its first Outcome Budget, released on Wednesday, was a picture of contrasts across departments — with substantial progress on several fronts and some glaring misses and delays in others.
The report mapped the progress of ‘output indicators’, which are the services and infrastructure that a department is supposed to provide, and ‘outcome indicators’, which explained how people benefited from them. The report termed those projects where more than 70% work has been completed as ‘on track’, and those falling below that as ‘off track’.

The Indian Express breaks down five of the 14 key departments listed in the report:
