No decision on fund allotment

Shillong, Aug. 10: The Meghalaya government is still in the dark about the prerequisites and expenditure, which are required to be exhausted in the newly created districts.

Recently, the government went on a district-inauguration spree where four new districts were carved out. The state now has 11 districts.

The government has sanctioned Rs 40 crore for basic infrastructure in these new districts.

“We have decided to allocate at least Rs 10 crore for each new district for creating the infrastructure by this year,” Sangma said here today.

On the total cost that the government has projected to spend for these four new districts, he said different departments are preparing the detailed project reports which would indicate the amount required to be allocated.

He said the new districts would have mini secretariats, which would house all departments under one roof.
