Addressing the State-level conference of Executive Directors (EDs) of District Scheduled Castes Service Cooperative Societies here on Thursday, he said that it was proposed to rehabilitate 11,975 scavengers and their dependents with various alternative occupations with an outlay of Rs 23.95 crores and to ameliorate 2,742 jogins at Rs 5.48 crores.
The Minister evaluated the work of the Scheduled Castes Cooperation Finance Corporation's Annual Action Plan for 2002-03, prepared with an outlay of Rs 180.75 crores benefiting 1,12,040 SC families and found fault with some of the EDs for failing to achieve the targets and instructed them to work hard to reduce the time gap between the selection of beneficiaries and the sanctions.
Citing statistics prepared by the Corporation, he revealed that it could reach only 61 per cent of physical and 58 per cent of financial targets. "As we have to submit the progress report to the HRD Institute, EDs should expedite and work hard to reach targets.''
He advised the EDs to give priority to the self-employment schemes and said that 13,874 SC educated youth were to be provided financial assistance amounting to Rs 78.52 crores, working out to 43 per cent of the total outlay.
The Chairman of the Corporation, Areti Kotaiah, urged the EDs to attune themselves to the changed times and identify the poorest among the poor in a transparent manner. The Vice Chairman and Managing Director of the Corporation, J.C. Sharma, informed the meeting that efforts were on to computerise the functioning of the Corporation.
