Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed today directed Deputy Commissioners for release of State share of funds to districts for availing benefits of Centrally-sponsored schemes.
Asking Deputy Commissioners not to lose focus on the kitty of funds allocated under Centrally-Sponsored Schemes (CSSs), Sayeed issued instructions to ensure release of State share to the districts, enabling them to access the Central share of funding for achieving both physical and financial targets fixed during the District Development Board (DDB) meetings.
The Chief Minister issued the instructions during a meeting convened to review the implementation of decision taken at District Development Board (DDB) meetings.
Since 50 per cent of the Rs 6000 crore kitty under centrally sponsored schemes has been earmarked for education sector alone, Sayeed also passed instructions for approaching MHRD to convene its meeting of the Project Approval Board (PAB) so that funds under Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA) and Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) are sanctioned well in time.
The Chief Minister was informed that out of the 223 DDB decisions, 59 have been implemented while 163 are at various stages of implementation
