Finance Ministry for discontinuing 120 schemes in 11th plan

Feb '07
The coming 11th Five Year Plan may see the abolishing of about 120 central schemes resulting into people losing their jobs.

The Finance Ministry is not in favour of continuing the 120 centrally sponsored schemes worth Rs 2,179.83 crores in the 11th Plan, government sources said.

Budgetary allocation of Rs 50 crore has been made to discontinue the scheme into the 11th plan by Finance Ministry for Department of Expenditure to relocate manpower till the schemes are wound up, sources said.

Concerned ministries have been informed to absorb surplus manpower elsewhere or adjust as per existing guidelines, sources said.

According to the existing guidelines employees rendered surplus following closure of the schemes are to be put in Surplus Cell of the government for a year and preference would be given to them while deciding manpower needs of the ministries but they could be forcibly retired, if at the end of the year they are still unemployed, sources said.

The schemes which face closure under Finance Ministry's proposal are Agriculture Department worth Rs 64.9 crores, Coal Ministry's schemes worth Rs 67.51 crores, MEA's schemes of Rs 176 crores, DIPP's schemes of Rs 349 crores, Department of Heavy industry's schemes of Rs 349 crores, Textiles Ministry's schemes of Rs 590.50 crores and Ministry of Road Transport and Highways schemes worth Rs 110 crores.
