MINISTER OF RURAL DEVELOPMENT(SHRI KASHI RAM RANA)

(a) to (e) A statement is laid on the Table of the House.
Statement referred to in reply to part (a) to (e) of Lok Sabha Starred Question No. 301 due for reply on 23-12-2003

(a) & (b) Requests have been received from four Sector Reform Pilot Projects to approve increased project outlay in view of greater demand from the local community. These are as under:-

(Rs. In lakh)

(c ) The Sector Reform Pilot Projects are implemented on a project mode with an approved project outlay, specified Government of India share and community contribution. Funds are released direct to the pilot project districts by the Government of India. A Statement showing the approved project outlay, Government of India share, and year-wise release of funds so far, including in the year 2003-04, is annexed.


(d) &(e) There is no intention to call off the reforms initiated in the rural drinking water supply sector and projects taken up thereof in the Sector Reform Pilot Project districts from 2004-05. The State Governments have been advised to consider notifying these districts as Swajaldhara II districts with effect from 1.4.2004 so as to ensure seamless transition of these projects into Swajaldhara since Swajaldhara is based on the same reform principles and, in effect, is only scaling up of the reform initiative launched by the Sector Reform Pilot Projects in 1999 to cover the entire country.
