Members Of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme(MPLADS)

MPLADS

MPLAD Scheme was launched on December 23, 1993, to provide a mechanism for the Members of Parliament to recommend works of developmental nature for creation of durable community assets and for provision of basic facilities including community infrastructure, based on locally felt needs.

It is an important scheme of Government of India which empowers every Member of Parliament (MP) to spend a certain sum of amount on the development of his/her constituency on various social development areas such as health, education, drinking water, electricity, family welfare, sanitations etc. In 1993-94, when the scheme was launched, an amount of R5 lakh per MP was allotted. This was stepped up to R2 crore in FY99 and then to R5 crore in FY12

The Role of MP

MP’s can only recommend the allocation of MPLADS fund. Under MPLADS, the role of the Members of Parliament is limited only up to recommendation of works. Thereafter, it is the responsibility of the District Authority to sanction, execute and complete the works recommended by Members of Parliament within the stipulated time period The scheme basically gives the right to every MP (Lok Sabha as well as Rajya Sabha Members) to recommend spending Rs. 5 crore every year on works of development nature. The MPs can recommend the work(s) in their constituency (in case of Lok Sabha) or anywhere in the state from where they are elected (in case of Rajya Sabha).

Working of MPLADS

Earlier, the scheme was administered by the ministry of rural development, but the ministry of statistics and programme implementation (MoSPI), is currently responsible. The organization chart pertaining to the working of MPLADS starts with MoSPI at the top followed by the state nodal department, the district authority (DAs) and finally the implementing agency (IA). Supervision and monitoring is in the hands of state nodal departments. The responsibility of cost estimation, work scrutiny, identification is vested with IAs and transfer of funds is vested with the DAs. The scheme mandates that Panchayati Raj Institutions be preferred as the IA.
