Sisodia, who holds the finance portfolio, is likely to allocate 25 per cent of the total allocation to education sector by focusing on training programmes and physical infrastructure.

In the 2015-16 budget, the government had allocated Rs 9,836 crore for the education sector out of which Rs 4,570 crore was given under the plan outlay, which was an increase of around 106 per cent.

The government is also expected to shell out more on public transport as it has decided to buy 1,000 new air-conditioned buses.

The House will sit only for five days till March 31.

The government will provide funds for 3,000 mohalla sabhas where locals will have a say in deciding civic projects in their areas.

The government is expected to set aside Rs 50 crore for the Aam Aadmi Canteens, modelled after Tamil Nadu's highly-subsidised Amma canteens, to provide nutritious food to migrant workers in the national capital.

The city government will not bring any new Bill during the Session as it awaiting Centre's nod for 14 Bills passed by the Delhi Assembly in last one year.

"If the Centre does not give nod to the city government's bills at the earliest, there is no benefit of tabling new bills and sending them to it for approval," Sisodia had said recently.

The winter session of the assembly, which was the longest in the history of Delhi legislature, had seen the introduction and passage of 15 Bills, including the Janlokpal and Delhi School Education Amendment Bill.
