Telangana government directs departments to utilise SC funds

Hyderabad: The Telangana government has directed departments to utilise the entire amount allotted to them under the SC Development Fund.

After reviewing department-wise and scheme-wise expenditures, the government has found the utilisation of funds by some departments to be unsatisfactory. Many departments have failed to spend the funds allotted to them in the first quarter, and some have not incurred any expenses at the end of the second quarter.




The government has now sent out a note instructing all departments to sort out any existing issues within a month and indicate whether or not they will be utilising the amounts allotted to them. The government wants all funds to be utilised by the end of the current financial year.

According to the SC&ST Special Development Fund Act, funds that remain unspent are compensated in the subsequent fiscal year. Keeping this in mind, the state government wants departments to spend the entire amount released under the SC Development Fund in order to avoid bearing a financial burden in the next fiscal year.

The irrigation department has spent the least money so far — only 8.73 per cent of the total amount allotted under the SC Development Fund — and the agriculture department has spent the most — 78.08 per cent.

The departments of women development and child welfare, municipal administration, and Animal Husbandry have all spent less than 20 per cent of the funds allotted to them.
