Mumbai: Ruling out policy paralysis in the functioning of the government,Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Saturday said that the government is taking tough decisions to ensure the proper implementation of its policies.
 
"There is no policy paralysis. I would like make it quite clear, a large number of policies have been taken," he said while speaking at the award function of a TV channel here.

Mukherjee said a Presidential directive was recently issued to state-owned Coal India to ensure supply of coal to power sector companies.

"Take the case of manufacturing policy, take the case of decisions of group of ministers to remove the constraints of fuel supply to the power ministry and ultimately leading to the presidential direction to CIL. These are just few instances", he said while replying to a question related to policy paralysis.

The government also came up with a new nutrient based fertiliser policy, he said, adding "announcement of the policy, its implementation and yield from the policy...it takes some time. There is a gap but there is no policy paralysis as such".
