According to the members of the parliament, in 1397, the budget for code91 was 1 billion and 300 million Afghanis and its over spent amount is 1 billion and 720 million.

However, the information shows that the government has saved Afs100 million ($1.2 million) in the last fiscal year of  1399 (2020) from an allocated budget of Afs1.1 billion ($14.2 million).
