Untied Funds are funds that have been placed at the disposal of the district administration to effect a certain level of financial autonomy to undertake developmental and welfaristic projects based on locally felt needs. This fund is intended to bestow a certain degree of autonomy and discretionary power on the district administration while undertaking developmental and welfaristic initiatives in the districts.
The broad objectives of the scheme are as follows:
The implementation mechanism for Untied Funds Scheme in Dima Hasao is identical to those that are prevalent in other districts of Assam. The local MLA sends proposals for projects to be undertaken in his/her constituency under this scheme to the Deputy Commissioner who then intimates the line departments to prepare a project execution plan. The tenders are called for by the concerned line departments under whose fields of expertise the proposed projects lie and work orders are issued by them accordingly. The monitoring of projects undertaken under this scheme is performed by a monitoring committee that includes the incumbent MLA, Deputy Commissioner and officers from the concerned line departments of Dima Hasao as well as officials and representatives from the North Cachar Hills Autonomous Council.
The Untied Fund Scheme is a recurring annual scheme and progress/utilization reports are sought by the public and officials alike for monitoring purposes. It is the sincere endeavour of the district administration of Dima Hasao to make available to the public all information regarding the same. The documents uploaded on this section can be perused by anyone desirous of obtaining information regarding implementation of schemes borne out of Untied Funds in Dima Hasao.
