Ranchi, Jan. 20: Jharkhand principal secretary, (Planning & Finance Department), Amit Khare on Wednesday directed all the departments to prepare Plan-Draft as per the directions issued and submit them to the Planning & Finance Department by January 25.
The draft plans should include proposals received by Chief Minister Raghubar Das during his meetings at different commissionery headquarters as well as suggestions received through Jan Samvad Kendra. In addition, Khare directed that the new proposals for schemes have to be given after provisioning sufficient fund for running schemes. It should be clearly mentioned how much fund is to be expensed on last year scheme and how much on present one.
Provisioning funds without physical justification is not justified, he directed, adding that as a result, physical outcome should be achieved and fixed before submitting the proposals. All departments have given devolution of functions to panchayats. Hence sufficient funds should be provisioned for the functions of panchayats and the funds should be shown as provisioned under District Sector Scheme.
Khare also instructed that the women beneficiaries of the schemes run under Total Annual Expenditure should be estimated. If 30 percent or more women are getting benefitted from any scheme, it should be categorized under gender based schemes.
Total proposed expenditure should be mapped properly. It includes funds received from the Union government and out sourcing. The remnant fund has to be obtained from state scheme heads. Proposals without mapping will face difficulties in withdrawal of funds, so special attention should be given to this aspect. In addition, various proforma should be attached for clear mapping.
Running irrelevant schemes from utility point of view should be marked with obligation fund clearly in the obligation column. Proposed expenditure on relevant old running schemes should be shown under ongoing scheme column.
Workability of proposals as well as provisions should be ensured, otherwise funds will be allotted against impractical proposals which will be difficult to expense.
