Chamba, July 24

The Scheduled Castes Sub-Plan and District Welfare Committee on Saturday approved Rs 61.95 crore for providing pension to 42,723 eligible persons of different categories under the Social Security Pension Scheme during the current financial year. The approval was accorded at a meeting of the committee chaired by Vidhan Sabha Deputy Speaker Hans Raj here.

Han Raj reviewed the achievements made under the infrastructure development and welfare schemes related to the SC community. He said during the current financial year, a budget provision of Rs 57.65 crore for the Scheduled Castes Sub-Plan had been made under the state plan.

The Deputy Speaker said that the district authorities should ensure the completion of all departmental formalities before a budget provision was made in the work plans prepared by the departments related to the sub-plan so that in the second or third quarter, there should be no need to change the items of the plans or surrender the budget unnecessarily.

Hans Raj directed the Deputy Director Higher Education to make available the utilisation certificates of all school buildings that had been constructed. — OC
