Campaign to know MPLAD Fund Utilisation
I have taken pledge to obtain information about MPLAD fund utlisation from my District. I want to spead this to my friends and followers to do so the same. Under Member of Parliament Local Area Development Funds (MPLADS), the role of the Members of Parliament is limited only upto recommendation of works. Thereafter, it is the responsibility of the District Authority to sanction, execute and complete the works recommended by Members of Parliament within the stipulated time period. It is very important to know therefore as to what work our MP is recommending to the District Collector.
A normal tendency is to stagger the recommendations for the last year of the term, to get maximum benefit for the next election. This is especially true as 5 Crore allotted to MP each year does not lapse. Also those District which has not released the Utilisation Certificate (UC) of the previous works, new works under MPLAD cannot be taken up. Thus many MP’s complaint to State Government and to Central Government about non utilisation of previous works.
We have created the sample RTI Application which will be emailed to you once you sign the petition. Please go ahead and sign the campaign. The list of signatory are here!
