Jamshedpur: The deputy commissioner of East Singhbhum Amit Kumar convened a meeting of the District Coordination Committee in connection with development and revenue related issues on Monday.
Kumar reviewed the progress of various ongoing schemes and issued directions to the officials concerned on opening bank accounts of MGNREGA beneficiaries, verification of job cards, Aadhar seeding, Indira Awas, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, unemployment compensation, widow pension, old age pension, Primitive Tribe Pension Scheme and construction of toilets.
During the review of MGNREGA projects being run in the district, the DC found out that the reports related to man days in implementation of MGNREGA schemes in Potka block were dissatisfactory.
He said the number of dobhas (farm ponds) in the various blocks across the district was below satisfaction level and directed the officials concerned to speed up the work.
He set a deadline of 2nd December for MIS entry for all the projects. He also directed the officials to complete construction of anganwadi centres through the convergence of MGNREGS and social welfare schemes by March 2017. Reports were submitted for the construction of 1576 dobhas in the district so far against a total target of 4842. Approval was given for making MIS entry for a total of 7000 dobhas.
Regarding Indira Awas scheme implementation, the DC was informed that a total of 11318 Indira Awas units had been constructed so far while 4360 units were still pending.
The DC directed all BDOs to complete the remaining work by 31st December. He also set the 31st December deadline for completing 98 per cent of the verification work for Aadhar seeding in all blocks. He said the bank accounts of most job card holders had been opened. He said the remaining accounts should be opened soon and the cases of delayed payments under MGNREGS should be brought down to zero.
The DC sought certificates from BDOs to prove that no Primitive Tribe family was left out in the implementation of the family pension schemes. He found out that Potka was way behind in implementing Primitive Tribe pension scheme. Out of the total 587 beneficiaries, only 79 were given pension, he was told. At this, the DC asked the BDO of Potka to achieve the target without delay.
Reviewing revenue matters, the DC directed all circle officials to send the records of suspicious jamabandi cases to him in the prescribed format within two weeks. Notices should be sent to suspected occupants, he said.
The DC further asked the land reformation deputy collectors (LRDCs) to give possession in dakhal dihani cases pending for over last one year. He said that there are a total of 24 paddy purchase centres in the district.
He asked all circle officers to get their local farmers registered so that they may sell paddy at the paddy purchase centres. Physical verification of the paddy centres should also be done, he said.
