Job scheme: State pulled up for slow funds utilisation

Rs. 98. 89 crore released to Tamil Nadu, only 5 per cent had been spent

Chennai: The pace of utilisation of funds, allotted by the Union Ministry of Rural Development under the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme, is found to be below average in Tamil Nadu.

So far, the State had utilised only 5 per cent of the funds allotted and the State had been asked to improve its performance.

Tamil Nadu is not the only State where the pace of utilisation is slow. Twelve other States were also pulled by the Centre for slow implementation. To improve the performance, the Union Government had released Rs. 205 lakh to these 13 States for imparting training for the scheme's functionaries.

The scheme is being implemented in six districts — Tiruvannamalai, Cuddalore, Sivaganga, Villupuram, Nagapattinam, and Dindigul.

A PIB release here said the Ministry released Rs. 98. 89 crore to Tamil Nadu for implementation of the scheme. Of this, only 5 per cent had been spent.

Social audit

Meanwhile, the Ministry is contemplating to involve experienced NGOs in social audit for the scheme and had drawn the attention of State Governments towards the mandatory requirement of having social audit on highest priority.
