Review of MPLAD Scheme

The Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Statistics and Programme Implementation Shri Srikant Kumar Jena has said that the Ministry reviews and monitors implementation of the scheme twice in a year with Nodal Secretaries of the State/UT Governments, apart from regular reviews of implementation of the Member of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS) in the States.

In a written reply in the Lok Sabha today he said, despite positive views of the public about MPLAD Scheme, deficiencies in implementation of scheme have been found at the district level which include: delay in execution of works, incomplete works and poor use of assets, encroachment, diversion of use, lack of maintenance, idle assets, etc. 

He said, as per MPLADS guidelines, the District Authorities are required to execute works under the scheme, as per the established procedure of the State Government for implementation of such works.
