From non-maintenance of accounts to poor utilisation of funds, the CAG report points out several holes in the Tribal Sub Plan (TSP) when it comes to Rajasthan.
The CAG report says for Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA), separate accounts for TSP funds were not opened in public sector banks nor separate record books maintained. “No textbooks, workbooks, stationary, uniforms, footwear, etc., were provided to enrolled ST students in 20 selected schools under RMSA,” the report added.
The report also states that no separate accounts were maintained at the district level for mid-day meals in schools. In the 10 selected districts, 8,482 schools were without a kitchen-cum-store.
On the health front too, the report found that out of a total of 716 sub-centres, 386 sub-centres were established without following the population norms for plain and tribal hilly areas.
