State Government to release dues to irrigation projects

Rs. 500 crore to be alloted a month to speed up work

The State Government plans to clear the dues that were pending for the past couple of months. The amount to be cleared is Rs.1,500 crore for the prioritized 39 irrigation projects in June. A target was set to complete 39 irrigation projects with an outlay of Rs.6,000 crore by the end of the current financial year on a priority basis and bring additional ayacut under cultivation by next Kharif season. Accordingly, it was decided to allocate Rs.500 crore a month for these projects out of the Rs.15,000 crore allocated in the current year budget for all Jalayagnam projects.

As far as the demand for the release of scholarships and fee reimbursement from educational institutions and beneficiaries before commencement of examinations in professional collages, the State Government was compelled to meet their requirement fist out of the limited resources at its disposal. With this result, other than Rs.220 crore towards acquisition of and Relief and Rehabilitation, prioritized projects did not get the promised funds in the last couple of months. According to reliable sources say that completing 25 out of targeted 39 irrigation projects should be a major achievement.

The state finance department also sought monthly progress reports on the priority projects and expenditure incurred during each but the irrigation departments yet to comply with the stipulation. Officials admit that it may not be possible to allot funds for major irrigation projects like Polavaram, Pranahita Chevella, Devadula etc., during the current financial year. The Chief Minister, K Rosaiah has convened a meeting on resource mobilization on Wednesday and explore way and means to generate revenue and garner additional resources to fulfill the government's commitment towards welfare and development schemes.
