India did not spent enough for the poor despite a commitment being made in the 11th five year plan. […] In the information shared with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday, the commission admitted that infrastructure sectors ate into the funds meant for the social sector, except rural development.

Both, health and education got just 60% of the funds projected for these sectors in the 11th plan, which the PM had described as a total health and education plan. The plan ends in March 2012.
