The Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi has sought revised estimates from each of its departments to execute schemes, projects and programmes under their respective jurisdictions.
An office memorandum has been issued by the planning department to secretaries and principal secretaries of all departments and asked them to furnish the particulars till November 7.
The Delhi government’s move is intended to ensure that there is no shortage of funds for the government-run projects, schemes and programmes.
The planning department has initiated the process of preparing the revised outlay 2017-18 for all schemes, projects and programmes, the memorandum stated.
“It is suggested that while projecting the requirement of funds for the remaining part of the year, a realistic view may be taken based on the expenditure upto October 2017 and a realistic requirement of funds upto March 2018,” it said.
“In case the information is not received from the departments in time, revised outlay will be finalised by the planning department, keeping in view, physical and financial progress of schemes/programmes upto October, 2017,” the memorandum added.
