Cabinet Decisions: The Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has approved the continuation of DoNER schemes with an outlay of Rs.12882.2 crore for the remainder of the 15th Finance Commission’s term (2022-23 to 2025-26).

According to a PIB release, the outlay for the North East Special Infrastructure Scheme (NESIDS) will be Rs.8139.5 crore, including committed liabilities of ongoing projects, based on the recommendations of the Expenditure Finance Committee (EFC).

 

Minister for DoNER G Kishan Reddy told a press conference here that the decision to extend the approved schemes for the balance period of the 15th Finance Commission was made at a meeting of the Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday.

This would allow for better scheme implementation planning in terms of project selection and front-loading of projects during the scheme period, he said.

Reddy stated that efforts will be made to complete the greatest number of projects by 2025-26 in order to have the fewest committed liabilities beyond that year.
