  • The process for the utilisation of the budget is quite detailed with three main authorities – the legislator, the Deputy Commissioners and the Planning Department.
  • The MLA first sends a proposal of works in his constituency to the Deputy Commissioners of his/her district.
  • The DC accords the administrative approval for the MLA’s recommendation and selects the local body which will implement the project.
  • The officer then sends an approved plan to the Department of Planning which is the nodal authority for this budget.
  • The DCs have to submit monthly reports in the progress of these projects.
  • Money sanctioned for any project should be released by the DC in two parts – 75% is to be released at the start of the project and 25% after it is completed following inspections.
