MP Tokheho Yepthomi speaking at DISHA Zunheboto meeting on Wednesday, 24 May.


“From this year onwards the state government has to release the state share of 10% after which only the central government will release its 90% share within the next 30 days,” the MP said during the Zunheboto district quarterly development coordination and monitoring committee meeting held at the Zunheboto deputy commissioner’s office on Wednesday.


Highlighting the importance of completing ongoing projects and schemes within the given timeframe, the Lok Sabha MP stated that only upon successful completion will the central government approve the next project or scheme. Additionally, the state government is required to refrain from keeping funds allocated for centrally-sponsored schemes or projects in savings. In case of delays or non-completion, the state government must promptly report the situation to the central government.


During the meeting, Yepthomi directed departments responsible for implementing centrally-sponsored schemes and projects to prioritize timely completion and ensure that the benefits reach the intended beneficiaries.
Specifically addressing the agriculture department, the MP urged officials to provide necessary support, including financial assistance, to farmers. He emphasized the importance of identifying suitable fruits and vegetables for cultivation in specific regions, enabling farmers to not only sustain themselves but also explore opportunities for export.


Furthermore, Yepthomi requested the department to actively engage with farmers, particularly in assisting them with the completion of PM Kisan forms. He highlighted the issue of forms being rejected due to farmers’ illiteracy or lack of awareness, stressing the need for targeted outreach efforts.


In addition to agricultural development, the Lok Sabha MP urged the submission of proposals for establishing power-generating plants in different locations, underscoring the significance of enhancing energy infrastructure in the state.


Shifting focus to the health and family welfare department, Yepthomi called for the organization of awareness programs to educate the public about the transmission and prevention of tuberculosis (TB) and HIV/AIDS. By fostering greater awareness, the department can contribute to a safer and healthier community.


The meeting concluded with a shared commitment to achieving timely completion of projects, efficient utilization of funds, and maximizing the benefits of centrally-sponsored schemes for the welfare and progress of Nagaland.

  1. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
