The Union Cabinet on Friday approved an Integrated Action Plan (IAP) for development of 35 Maoist-affected districts across the country, including five in Odisha.
The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs approved commencement of the IAP for Selected Tribal and Backward Districts to cover the identified 60 districts as an Additional Central Assistance (ACA) scheme on 100 per cent grant basis. This is in pursuance of the Union Finance Minister’s announcement in his Budget speech of 2010-11 and the Prime Minister’s address to the National Development Council on July 24, 2010.
The scheme will be implemented over two years — 2010-11 and 2011-12 with several components: The existing KBK plan under BRGF will continue as before with annual allocation of Rs 130 crore for all eight districts put together. The eight KBK districts have also been included in the IAP and will get an additional block grant of Rs 25 crore each in the current year and suitable additional amount under both State and district components of the IAP in the subsequent years.
