Poor utilisation of SCP-TSP grants irks DC

Poor utilisation of SCP-TSP grants irks DC

Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri, on Friday, said, notices would be served to the officials of the departments, which have achieved less than 50% progress, under Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes Sub-Plan.

Chairing the progress review meeting for the year 2017-18, the DC expressed disappointment over less than 50% progress by a few departments.

Departments of Medical Education, Heavy and Medium Irrigation, Women and Child Development, Industries and Commerce, Tourism, Labour and Horticulture have not achieved the expected targets, the DC said.

With just three-and-a-half-months left for the end of the fiscal, the departments should try to achieve maximum improvement. Criminal cases will be filed against the officials of departments with poor showing, Rohini warned.

The DC directed the officials to take measures to identify beneficiaries and provide them basic amenities.

ZP CEO K M Janaki pointed out that the Heavy and Medium Irrigation department's achievement was dismal in laying of roads, building drains and canals and other works under SCP and TSP schemes. It would become inevitable to take action against the departments, if they do not show progress, she said.

Social Welfare department Deputy Director Sridhar, and Kannada and Culture department in-charge Assistant Director Vinod Chandra were present.
