BHUBANESWAR: The Agriculture Department has asked district level functionaries to submit a detailed report on agriculture and allied activities under Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY) by end of this month.

After making drastic cut in budgetary provision of several Centrally sponsored schemes including RKVY, the Centre has asked NITI Aayog to undertake State-wise evaluation of the scheme which was launched in 2007-08 to provide additional Central assistance to States to check declining growth in the sector.

NITI Aayog has asked the State Government to give details of projects sanctioned under RKVY since inception of the scheme and physical and financial progress of the projects by April 15.

However, several districts have not submitted reports to the State Government till date.

On the basis of the NITI Aayog evaluation report, the Centre will decide about continuation of the scheme and need for States to raise own resources, if they wish to continue the programmes that remain under funded.

The NITI Aayog, which is currently occupied with the evaluation of social and economic schemes in partnership with the States, will put its observations on public domain.

Since inception of the scheme, the State has implemented 399 projects.
