12TH PLAN ALIGNED WITH GOVERNMENT’S TERM
Bhutan is supposed to have entered the 12th Five Year Plan period on July 1 last year, however, the 12th Plan start date was moved to November 1 to align the plan period with the government’s tenure.
This means that the 12th Five Year Plan period is now from 1 November, 2018 to October 31, 2023. Meanwhile, all five year plans till date began in July in line with the fiscal year dates.
The elections have been attributed as reason for creating a gap in the government taking office and planned commencement of the five year plan.
Meanwhile, the fiscal year dates will remain the same and the first fiscal year of the 12th FYP begins from last July and ends on next June.
