Expansion of the Domain of MPLAD Scheme

azadi ka amrit mahotsav

Under the Revised Guidelines, Hon’ble MPs have been given the flexibility in choosing the works that can be taken up under MPLAD Scheme provided it leads to creation of durable public assets for larger public good of the society. The Hon’ble MPs will not be required to wait for the actual fund to be released by the Ministry before recommending new projects as they will be allocated annual drawing limits at the beginning of each financial year subject to certain conditions. The entire process of fund flow will operate on an IT platform which will allow all the stakeholders, including Hon’ble MPs, the Central and State Govt. agencies, the district authorities etc. to monitor the status of funds and works on real time basis. All redundant provisions have been done away with and several new provisions have been incorporated.

This information was given by the Minister of State (I/C) for the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation, Ministry of Planning and Minister of State in the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Shri Rao Inderjit Singh in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today.
