Share of Production in Subsidy Reform Plan Below 1 Percent

Less than 1% of the revenues earned from the Subsidy Reform Plan were allocated to the production sector between 2010-11 and 2016-17, according to a report by Majlis Planning and Budget Commission. 
In 2010, the government of former president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, cut food and energy subsidies and instead paid 455,000 rials ($10.8) to each and every Iranian on a monthly basis. 
It was then announced that 30% of revenues earned from the rise in energy prices would go to production and optimization of consumption, 20% to the government for any extra expenditure that would come up in carrying out the plan and 50% to the social welfare system, including monthly cash subsidies, the Persian economic daily Donya-e-Eqtesad reported.
