Faced with the criticism of delay in release of funds, the union ministry development of north eastern region (DoNER) Tuesday, claimed to have made higher disbursement last fiscal, releasing Rs 668.62 crore under the non lapsable central pool of resources (NLCPR).
Union ministry of DoNER released an estimated Rs 668.62 crore to north eastern states for development projects in 2009-10. The disbursed amount under NLCPR is higher than the allocation made in 2008-09, which was Rs 660.38 crore, official sources said according to The Assam Tribune.
In 2009-2010, the ministry had earmarked Rs. 700 crore under NLCPR scheme but ended up releasing Rs 668.62 crore. These funds are released to the north eastern states including Sikkim in instalments in the sanctioned projects on first come first served basis.
