Malegaon: The Union Ministry of Rural Development has reconstituted the district-level vigilance and monitoring committees (VMC) for proper implementation of the central schemes pertaining to its own department, reports The Tribune.


Though the VMC existed earlier as well, these committees were dissolved on June 15 in wake of the general election.


However, these committees were, post the constitution of the 15th Lok Sabha, reconstituted by the Union ministry vide a notification dated August 26, 2009.


According to the report, the MPs who have been appointed as chairpersons of the vigilance and monitoring committees for various districts of Punjab include Navjot Singh Sidhu (Amritsar), Preneet Kaur (Patiala and Sangrur), Harsimrat Kaur Badal (Bathinda and Mansa), Paramjit Kaur Gulshan (Faridkot and Moga), Sukhdev Singh Libra (Fatehgarh Sahib), Rattan Singh Ajnala (Ferozepur), Pratap Singh Bajwa (Gurdaspur), Mohinder Singh Kaypee (Jalandhar), Santosh Chaudhary (Kapurthala), Manish Tewari (Ludhiana), Sher Singh Ghubaya (Muktsar) and Ravneet Singh (Nawanshahr and Rupnagar).


The need to reconstitute VMC was felt as these committees could perform the useful function of monitoring implementation of various programmes of the Ministry of Rural Development.


“It has now been decided to reconstitute VMC with members of the 15th Lok Sabha nominated as chairman and co-chairman of these committees,” reads the notification.


The guidelines for the VMC mentioned that primary responsibility of these committees is to effectively monitor the implementation of the schemes and programmes of the Ministry of Rural Development and to ensure that the funds are used for the purpose they are meant for.


The district-level VMC would undertake continuous internal assessment of project implementation in relation to agreed schedules, and of the use of inputs, infrastructure and services by project beneficiaries.


The other responsibility of these committees includes looking into the complaints/alleged irregularities received by them in respect of the implementation of the programmes, including complaints of wrong selection of beneficiaries, misappropriation/ diversion of funds of various schemes of the ministry.


The committee will exercise preventive vigilance, so as to ensure that irregularities, diversion and misappropriation of funds is avoided and the selection of beneficiaries is strictly in accordance with the guidelines of the programmes.


ADC (Development), Patiala, HS Pabla, said some of the members were to be nominated by the Patiala VMC chairperson Preneet Kaur. “Once the members are nominated, we will call the first meeting of the committee,” The Tribune has quoted HS Pabla as saying.
