While reviewing budgetary allocation and expenditure on different development schemes, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Monday that projects and works at the departmental level should be completed expeditiously.
“The projects which are going to be completed in a short period should be completed expeditiously within the stipulated period. At present, the situation of Covid is under control. In view of this, emphasis should be laid on the completion of development works and projects against financial sanctions,” CM said while reviewing the budget allocations here on Monday.
The Chief Minister said that the concerned officers should review the departmental budget continuously. The ministers should review the budget status of the department by holding a meeting with their Additional Chief Secretaries/Principal Secretaries. For the funds to be received from the Government of India in the year 2021-22, efforts should be made for timely receipt of funds in coordination with the Center, he said.
“Public welfare schemes should be implemented according to the intention of the state government. All the work should be executed according to the prescribed guidelines, standards and financial rules. For schemes aided by the Government of India, the concerned departments should send their proposals to the center soon,” CM said.
“The officers should act promptly in resolving the problems. According to the policies of the government, whatever incentives are to be given to various institutions should not be delayed. Continuous review of such works should also be done,” he said.
The Chief Minister said that there should be no delay in sending utility certificates to the Government of India regarding the implementation of central schemes. To make it available on time, the amount of central share will be released from the Government of India for the next phase of the scheme. In coordination with the Central Government, the remaining funds for the implementation of the schemes should be obtained at the earliest. This will help in the speedy completion of the schemes in the state.
On this occasion, an account of the sanctions and expenditure issued in relation to the budget provision of the departments, the amount received from the Government of India, and the efforts made to get the remaining amount and its use were presented before the CM.
