|SRINAGAR, Nov 8: The Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) has termed implementation of Prime Minister’s Reconstruction Plan (PMRP) in Jammu and Kashmir poor by saying that state government has failed to create self employment opportunities for the unemployed youths.|
In its latest audit report, the auditor general has said that self employment opportunities have been provided to 451 individuals in Jammu district against the target of 636 beneficiaries belonging to low income and weaker sections of the society.
The report also said that no group assistance has been provided to the urban unemployed youths under the scheme against the target of 60 groups intending to get finance assistance from the state government under PMRP scheme.
The CAG report has categorically asserted that state government has poorly implemented and monitored the PMRP scheme announced by Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh in 2004-06 for creating self employment opportunities for the urban unemployed youths.
It also said that district level Credit Committees under the chairmanship of Deputy Commissioner and state level sanctioning Committee under the chairmanship of chief secretary has also failed to conduct periodical or physical review of the scheme for its effective and transparent implementation.
The report has also said that the guidelines drawn by the prime minister’s office for its effective implementation has been ignored by the state government which led to non implementation of the scheme and under utilization of the funds provided to state under the scheme.
The CAG report has told the state government to implement the recommendation of the scheme with true spirit for its success; otherwise the scheme will not achieve the desired target, nor will it benefit the larger section of urban unemployed youth.
It has also been observed that the biggest failure of the scheme was that state government is not releasing the funds to the concerned departments at an appropriate time, restricting them from expanding all the parameters of the scheme at the grass root level.
Under the Prime Minister’s Reconstruction Program an economic package of Rs 24000 crores was sanctioned to the state of Jammu and Kashmir in November 2004.
The plan was later revised to Rs 33177.85 crores and the construction process started under three sections. The cumulative expenditure till August 2012 is recorded so far at Rs 4694.20 crores.
The funds were allocated for various developmental work in the state which included self employment, power projects, roads, degree colleges, ITIs, model villages, development of Ladakh and Kargil areas, roads under PMGSY, Dal and Nigeen dwellers, power sector and for the migrants.
