JAMMU: Jammu and Kashmir government has decided to re-structure the Planning and Development department with the aim to ensure focused monitoring of public expenditure, timely preparation of project reports and close monitoring of development projects.

The Cabinet, which met here today under the Chairperson-ship of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, gave nod to a proposal regarding reorientation and reorganisation of the Planning and Development Department, Education Minister Naeem Akhtar told reporters.

As per the proposal, the Planning and Development Department will become Planning & Monitoring Department, he said.

The change was necessitated following the replacement of Planning Commission of India by NITI Aayog and acceptance of the 14th Finance Commission recommendations by the Union Government with long term ramifications with regards to the planning process in the state, Naeem said.

Under the new framework, Revenue Expenditure and Capital Expenditure Budget have been separated from last year and the process of rationalisation will continue over the current year, he added.

Similarly, in terms of a more effective delivery strategy for inclusive and balanced regional development, the state government needs to lay stress on alternate systems of delivery of development programmes and public services, particularly execution of projects under Public Private Partnership.
