GUWAHATI, April 6: The progress of implementation of projects sanctioned under the Non-Lapsable Central Pool of Resources (NLCPR) scheme by the Government of India for Assam is terribly slow, indicating the way Central projects or schemes are being implemented in the State.

Of the 46 projects sanctioned under the NLCPR scheme in the fincial year 1999-2000, works of 40 projects were completed by the State government, but works of 6 projects are yet to be completed till date.

Again in the fincial year 2000-2001, 12 projects sanctioned under the NLCPR were implemented in the State but the works of 3 projects are yet to be completed. In the fincial year 2007-2008, 34 projects were sanctioned by the Central government under the NLCPR but works of 16 projects are yet to be completed by the State government.

“From the fincial years 1998-1999 to 2014-2015, 607 projects were sanctioned under the NLCPR by the Government of India but works of 244 projects have not yet been completed by the Assam government. Only 363 projects were implemented in the State,” the official records stated.

The Non-Lapsable Central Pool of Resources (NLCPR) created in 1997–98 (operatiolized in 1998–99) is the accrual of the unspent balance of the mandatory 10 per cent budgetary allocation of the ministries/departments. The broad objectives of the NLCPR scheme is to ensure speedy development of infrastructure by way of filling the existing infrastructural gaps (economic and social) in the region by making funds available from the pool.
