Goa lost Rs 10.69cr funding for Women & Child Dev due to bureaucratic indifference

According to a Times of India report, the delay in furnishing the statement of expenditure or utilization certification by the director of Women and Child development in utilization of central grants under the integrated child development services (ICDS), a centrally sponsored scheme, has cost the Goa exchequer Rs 10.69 crore, according to the latest report of the comptroller and auditor general of India.

The delay in furnishing accounts was the main reason for non-release of six out of 12 installments during the years 2009-2010, 2010-2011 and 2012-2013 in respect of the ICDS (general) and eight out of 20 installments during 2009-2014 in respect of the supplementary nutrition programme which is one of the major programmes under ICDS.

The reply issued by the director of women and child and received by the CAG in December last year which was considered while preparing the final report stated that the delay was due to some administrative reasons. During 2009- 2014 the state received grants of Rs 41.86 crore in respect of ICDS (general) despite it being eligible for grants of Rs 51.99 crore, resulting in a short release of central grants of Rs 10.13 crore. Similarly in respect of SNP grants for the years 2009-14 the state received only Rs 19.05 crore as grants despite it being eligible for Rs 19.61 crore, resulting in a short release of central grants of Rs 0.56 crore.

The integrated child development services scheme, being implemented by the ministry of women and child development was launched in India in 1975 and in Goa at Bicholim in 1978-79.

The scheme was developed to provide holistic development of preschool children in rural, tribal and slum areas providing them with supplementary nutrition, immunization, health check-ups, health education and pre-school non formal education. The ICDS (general) is funded in the ratio of 90:10 by the government of India and state government while the supplementary nutrition programme is funded in the ratio of 50:50 by the government of India and government of Goa respectively.
