The District Planning Committee (DPC) on Monday approved amendments suggested by 16 local bodies in the district to projects that were originally proposed in their 2013-14 budgets.

With this, the process of approval for plan amendments has been completed in the district, the district administration said.

District Panchayat president Ansajitha Russell presided over the DPC meeting.

The local bodies have been asked to submit the finalised plan documents by Wednesday. The DPC also decided to  bring to the notice of the state government that 31 panchayats in the districts have been allotted Tribal Sub-Plan (TSP) funds for 2014-15 even though no ST families reside in these panchayats.

In fact, the 31 panchayats had returned the TSP funds allotted to them in the 2013-14 budget citing the absence of ST families.

The DPC will meet on February 21, 24 and 26 for approving the projects for the 2014-15 financial year. Monday’s meeting also reviewed the progress of implementation of projects listed for the 2013-2014 fiscal and the preparations for 2014-15.

District Collector Biju Prabhakar urged the panchayats to speed up plan implementation-related activities. District Planning Officer N Prasanna Kumari also was present.
