The Urban Development department of the Delhi government has till May 25 approved 88 proposals to be executed under the MLA Local Area Development (LAD) scheme in the national capital, the Legislative Assembly was told.
In a written response to a question asked by AAP MLA Jarnail Singh, Jain told the House that work estimates not prepared as per existing MLA LAD guidelines were rejected.
In Delhi, an MLA gets Rs 4 crore in a year to execute various works in his or her constituency. The Urban Development department is mandated to implement the scheme.
Last month, the AAP government had issued guidelines to all executing agencies to prepare work estimates and proposals to be carried out under the MLA LAD Scheme in the national capital.
The department had asked the agencies, including municipal bodies, irrigation and flood control department and the PWD, to adhere to the guidelines to avoid delay in examination of proposals.
