ABHINAV VERMA

Jammu, May 17: Taking strong note of the financial mess created by Jammu and Kashmir, Planning Commission of India has introduced Management Information System (MIS) from this financial year to track all the schemes and projects undertaken by the state government under Special Plan Assistance (SPA).
 Well informed sources told Greater Kashmir that the Planning Commission of India (PCI) and Union Finance Ministry had taken strong notice of the usage of funds by Jammu and Kashmir under various heads particularly under Special Plan Assistance.
 “It was noticed that there were strong irregularities and mismanagement in utilization of SPA during the last financial year. Different government departments of the state had taken up projects with a very high estimated cost, allocating only Rs 1 lakh or so, annually to a scheme. With such meager allocation annually, the project can only be completed after a gap of 20-25 years, which had disturb whole planning process,” sources, privy to the ongoing discussion on current plan allocation between the officials of the JK government and PCI, said.
 They informed that the PCI has taken strong exception to these discrepancies and has decided to introduce MIS, which would track the schemes from the very beginning of financial year 2013-14 and schemes already under execution under SPA across Jammu and Kashmir.
 “With the introduction of new system, the PCI will be directly monitoring the implementation and execution of all the schemes in the state”, sources said.
 They said that MIS would monitor all the schemes online on regular basis and release funds accordingly. “Once nomenclature, estimated cost, previous expenditure and allocation for the year 2013-14 is finalized after annual plan allocation by Union government, there will be no room for the cost escalation, additional allocation or re-appropriation in case of non-utilization” sources said.
  They also informed that to overcome such difficulties, JK government has also decided to take up some steps to ensure that the state does qualify for the release of funds under SPA in future.
 “The state government has asked all the departments to firstly ensure sufficient availability of funds for ongoing schemes so as to ensure their completion within a period of two or three years, before taking up any new schemes or project” sources said.
 “All ongoing scheme as well as projects out of last financial year’s  list of SPA shall be the first priority during the fiscal year 2013-14 and have to be completed in a maximum of two and three years time” the Planning and Development Department of J&K has asked all departments over use of SPA.
