II.                                                         Member of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS)
The Member of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS) was launched by the Govt. of India on 23rd December, 1993, to provide a mechanism for Members of Parliament to recommend works of developmental nature for creation of durable community assets and for provision of basic facilities including community infrastructure, based on locally felt needs to be taken up in their Constituencies/States. The scheme is governed by a set of Guidelines, which have been comprehensively revised from time to time. The present Guidelines were issued in August, 2012.

Some of the Salient features of the scheme are enumerated below:-

  • MPLADS is a Plan scheme fully funded by Government of India, under which funds are released in the form of Grant in-aid, as special Central Assistance to States.

  • In 1993-94 , when the scheme was launched , an amount of Rs. 5 lakh per MP was allotted which was enhanced to Rs. 1 crore per annum from 1994-95 per MP and Rs. 2 crore from 1998-99. This was further increased to Rs. 5 crore from 2011-12 per constituency. It is released in two installments of Rs. 2.5 crore each by the Government of India directly to the District Authorities for execution of the eligible works recommended by the MPs by following the established procedure of the concerned state government.

  • The funds released under the scheme are non lapsable i.e the funds not released in a particular year will be carried forward for making releases in the subsequent years subject to eligibility.

  • Examining the eligibility, sanctioning, funding, selection of implementing agencies, prioritization and overall execution and monitoring of the scheme at the ground level, is done by the District Authorities.

  • The Lok Sabha Members shall recommend works in their respective constituencies. The elected members of the Rajya Sabha can recommend works anywhere in the State from which they are elected. Nominated Members of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha can recommend works for implementation anywhere in the country.

  • Right from the inception of the Scheme, works for creation of durable assets of national priorities viz. drinking water, primary education, public health, sanitation and roads etc. have been given priority.

  • MPs can also recommend community infrastructure and public utility building works for registered Societies/Trusts and Cooperative Societies up to a ceiling for Rs. 1 crore. The Trusts/Societies and Cooperative Societies are eligible to receive only Rs. 50 lakh in their life time. However Trusts/Societies that run charitable residential homes for orphans, old/aged persons, widows, lepers, blind persons, spastic/mentally retarded children or for deaf and dumb children are eligible for receiving a maximum of Rs.1 crore in their entire life time for creation of charitable and residential home. The structure constructed with MPLADS funds shall be the property of State/UT Government.
  • Special attention is given for infrastructural development of areas inhabited by Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes population by earmarking 15% and 7.5% respectively of MPLADS funds for those areas and in case there is insufficient tribal population in the area of Lok Sabha Member, they may recommend this amount for the creation of community assets in tribal areas outside of their constituency within their state of election. In case a state does not have ST inhabited areas, this amount may be utilized in SC inhabited areas and vice-versa.

  • Also to encourage Trusts/Societies to work for the betterment of the tribal people, the ceiling of Rs.50 lakh has been increased to 75 lakh where the additional amount of Rs.25 Lakh should be used for the creation of public utility building assets primarily for the benefit of tribal people in tribal areas.

  •  In order to undertake rehabilitation works in the areas affected by calamities in a state, Lok Sabha MPs from the non-affected areas of that state can recommend permissible works to the tune of up to Rs. 10 lakh per annum in those areas. In the event of calamity of severe nature in any part of the country an MP recommend works up to a maximum of Rs. 50 lakh for the affected district.

  • If an elected Member of Parliament, finds the need, to contribute MPLADS funds, to a place outside their State/UT, or outside the constituency within the states or both, the MP can recommend eligible works under the Guidelines up to a maximum of Rs. 10 lakh in a financial year.

·         MP can spent a maximum of Rs.10 lakh per year for giving assistance to physically challenged persons for purchase of tri-cycles (including motorized tri-cycles), battery operated motorized wheel chair and artificial limbs.

·         Purchase of books for schools, colleges and public library are allowed subject to some financial restriction.

·         Purchase of computers and Visual Display Units for government and government aided institutions are also allowed.
  • Release of 1st installment equal to 50% of annual entitlement in respect of MPs at the time of constitution of Lok Sabha and election to the Rajya Sabha is done automatically without waiting for any document from district authorities.

  • To bring in more financial accountability, Utilization Certificate and Audit Certificate for the previous financial year are also pre-requisites for the release of the second installment. From financial year 2012-13, release of first installment is made on the basis of the release of second installment of previous year being made and also provisional Utilization Certificate to be given by the District Authority in respect of 80% of entitlement of 1st installment of previous year.

  • Funds released by the Government of India are deposited by the District Administrations in nationalized banks.

  • 2% of the MPLAD funds which is part of the annual entitlement of the MP hasbeen allowed to State Government for their administrative expenses.

  • The normal financial and audit procedures prevalent in the states in which the works are executed apply with regard to the implementation of the works.

  • The roles of Central Government, State Government, District Authorities and Implementing Agencies have been clearly demarcated for implementation of MPLAD Scheme.

  • An integrated software on MPLAD Scheme system has been developed for monitoring MPLAD Scheme funds release, funds monitoring, Monitoring of expenditure incurred at Macro and Micro level through NICSI. The proposed system will be a dynamic user friendly web application and will be a single portal of reference for all the stake holders. The portal will ensure Micro (works), Macro (release and expenditure level) reporting and monitoring of timely utilization of funds. 

  • An effective mechanism of monitoring of implementation of MPLADS is most essential, for efficacious implementation of the Scheme. Therefore, third party agencies are engaged by this Ministry to physically monitor all MPLADS works. NABARD Consultancy Services (NABCONS)is one of the agencies which was selected for the third party monitoring of MPLADS works during the period 2007-08 to 2010-11. Presently the work is being done by Agriculture Finance Corporation (AFC).

  Since its inception, the Scheme has benefited the local community by meeting various developmental needs such as drinking water facility, education, electricity, health and family welfare, irrigation, non-conventional energy, community centres, public libraries, bus stands/stops, roads, pathways and bridges, sports, etc. These works are sanctioned, executed and monitored as per the provisions of the MPLADS Guidelines.
