NULM joint secy reviews functioning of DAY-NULM in Arunachal

ITANAGAR, Oct 18: Joint Secretary in charge of the National Urban Livelihood Mission (NULM), Sanjay Kumar, reviewed the functioning of the Arunachal State Urban Livelihoods Mission (ArSULM) and the Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana – National Urban Livelihoods Mission (DAY-NULM) at the Dorjee Khandu convention centre here on Friday.
Addressing the participants, Kumar said, “As the fund is released solely against the mission programme, obtaining budgetary support and concurrence at the state government’s level should be expedited for early execution of the programme.”
On the demand for separate fund for establishing a city mission management (CMM) unit under the DAY-NULM, Kumar suggested exploring recruitment possibilities for the CMM unit with the fund provided for the state mission managers [SMM] at the state level, “as there is no specified provision for CMM.”
Earlier, ArSULM Mission Director, Nixon Lego, made a presentation on the functioning of the DAY-NULM in the state.
The meeting also discussed other issues, including the change in the pattern of obtaining budgetary support, as well as concurrence for the fund released by the Centre under the mission programme. The matter of convergence of the DAY-NULM, the PMAY and the SBM for getting better results from various mission mode programmes of the central government was also discussed.
Kumar urged Lego to ensure uploading of the data onto the DAY-NULM portal, “as presented in the meeting, within a period of 15 days.”
Among others, NULM National Mission Manager Ravi Solonki, the state’s UD Secretary SK Jain, and UD CE Taring Darang attended the review meeting.
After the meeting, Kumar, who arrived in Arunachal on Thursday, visited the sales counter of the NULM beneficiaries in Akashdeep, the vendors’ market in Ganga, the STP training centre, and Rajiv Gandhi Government Polytechnic, and inaugurated the ALF office at the Donyi Polo Vidya Bhawan road here.
He also interacted with the beneficiaries to learn about the success of the SULM.
