Srinagar, Jun 18 (UNI) Cautioning against lapse of funds earmarked for development projects, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad today asked Administrative Secretaries (ADs) to monitor these project themselves without waiting for ministers to take review.
Speaking at a meeting to review development projects currently going on in the state, Mr Azad has asked ADs to constantly monitor the ongoing development projects in the State to ensure their timely completion.
He cautioned against lapse of funds earmarked for these schemes.
The Chief Minister said the ADs should not wait for the ministers to take review and monitor development projects.
He said assembly elections being round the corner, the ministers could be busier and might not find enough time to supervise each project on regular basis.
He said the concerned ADs would have to be very active and take upon themselves the task to supervise and monitor development projects under the superintendence and guidance of the respective ministers.
Mr Azad said constant and close monitoring of projects was necessary for their timely completion and to avoid lapse or wastage of funds.
He said the centre had provided liberal funds for development works in the State, and added that if these were not fully utilized the government would find it difficult to get similar funding next time.
He said he did not want a single paisa to be wasted.
Mr Azad asked all ADs to prepare database on each ongoing development project so that necessary push and mobilization of funds was made wherever required.
This, he said, would speed up completion at the projects adding he was personally monitoring the development projects on the highest level and had asked the district development commissioners to provide weekly feedback on the ongoing projects in their districts.
