Goa CM submits DPRs worth Rs 10 billion to centre for approval

Chief Minister Pramod Sawant announced that detailed project reports (DPRs) for various projects and schemes, amounting to approximately Rs 10 billion, have been submitted to the Union government. "We have conducted a review of central-sponsored projects and social welfare schemes. We have prepared DPRs for 70 projects and have already submitted 42 of them, totaling around Rs 9.43 billion," Sawant revealed. "An approval of Rs 2.23 billion has been granted, and we are in the process of submitting more proposals."

The chief minister expressed optimism about receiving swift approvals from the Union government for the submitted DPRs. He acknowledged that the state faces challenges in implementing certain centrally-sponsored schemes due to its small size. Sawant chaired a meeting with secretaries and department heads to assess the progress of proposals based on central-sponsored projects and schemes. "I have instructed the secretaries to expedite the process," he stated.

Furthermore, Sawant convened a meeting with representatives from the 26 corporations. The finance department provided a presentation on proposal preparation and other related matters. Detailed discussions were held regarding the action plans of the corporations. "We have directed the corporations to create vision documents and action plans for their implementation. Following the review meeting, there will be significant changes in the functioning of corporations in the state," Sawant emphasised.

The chief minister hinted at the possibility of shutting down non-performing government-run corporations. He stated, "We will review all the corporations and, if necessary, consider closing some. These loss-making corporations burden the government. In the current financial situation, it is impractical to continue running unnecessary corporations. Only those corporations that are profitable and self-sustainable should continue."
