Hailakandi, April 20: The District Development Coordination and Monitoring Committee (DISHA) meeting was held on Thursday. It discussed the status of various ongoing schemes in Hailakandi district. Chairing the meeting, MP Radheshyam Biswas urged all the officers to work in team spirit while reviewing the progress of implementation of Central flagship schemes, especially the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan in the district. Biswas called for effective development and coordination of all the Central Government schemes, whether it was for infrastructure development or social and human resource development.
All the heads of departments apprised the chairperson about the present status of the schemes implemented in their respective departments, which included Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana among others. Biswas instructed the officials to complete all pending works at the earliest. The representatives during the meeting assured all kinds of support for public welfare activities.
The MP exhorted upon the officials to ensure that the programmes were implemented as per guidelines together with a proper tab on the flow of funds and their timely utilization. “All flagship programmes have to be implemented in a time-bound manner coupled with transparency and quality implementation,” he added. The Deputy Commissioner, who is the member secretary of the committee, while explaining the objectives, asked the officials to ensure proper and effective coordination among different departments to remove any constraints regarding implementation of government programmes.
DISHA monitors the implementation of 28 schemes and programmes of Ministry of Rural Development and other ministries to promote synergy and convergence for greater impact. The earlier District Vigilance and Monitoring Committee was looking after the execution of the programmes of rural development only whereas DISHA takes care of all the major flagship programmes which have clear time-bound deliverables like Swachh Bharat and Digital India, besides looking at the programmes of rural development. The intent is to primarily remove difficulties in implementation at the ground level to ensure better development coordination and, more importantly all schemes are implemented as per the guidelines.
