Calls for multiplying efforts under PMFME

JAMMU: Additional Chief Secretary (ACS) Atal Dulloo on Thursday expressed his displeasure over what he termed as “unwanted delay” and “dereliction” in approving loans of candidates under Prime Minister’s Development Package (PMDP) and One District One Product (ODOP)
He censured the officials and instructed them to submit a detailed summary of rejected and pending cases along with plausible reasons.
Also, the District Nodal Officers (DNOs) were also asked to analyse the causes of rejection and small number of registrations under the scheme.
The ACS said that the number of registrations and sanctioning of cases under the scheme needs to be ramped up for its successful implementation.
He also suggested that DCs hold regular meetings to solve issues pertaining to the Prime Minister’s Development Package (PMDP) and One District One Product (ODOP) initiative.
Dulloo was chairing a meeting to review progress of Pradhan Mantri Formalisation of Micro Food Processing Enterprises (PM-FME) scheme in J&K.
A meeting in this regard was chaired by him at Civil Secretariat Jammu.
Notably, the centrally sponsored PM-FME scheme aims at providing financial, technical and business support for upgradation of existing micro food processing enterprises.
A PowerPoint presentation was given to the ACS in which the role of the scheme, respective capacity building measures, subsidies, use of common infrastructure and Common Incubation Centres etc were reviewed. He was presented with an action taken report and project implementation plan by senior officers at the meeting.
It was informed that the Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MOFPI) has sanctioned 3 Common Incubation Centres; for milk and its products in Narwal Jammu, for fish in Achabal Anantnag and at Doabgah Sopore for apples.
An indicative list of promotional activities planned by the departments was also shared with the ACS. It was informed that District Resource Persons (DRPs) have been appointed and their online training has been completed. The ACS asked the officers to ensure timely completion and compliance of training programmes.
The ACS instructed the officers to take substantial steps in implementation of the scheme whose physical and financial progress would be assessed by him.
The ACS directed officers to start preparing DPRs etc for new proposed Common Infrastructures.
“Non-performing DRPs should be replaced and vacant positions of DRPs be filled immediately,” the ACS directed. He said the DRPs must ensure that they encourage people’s participation in this scheme, he maintained.
