The Union Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region has reviewed the approval process for projects and release of funds under its flagship NLCPR scheme for the North East States to expedite approval of various new schemes.

Out of total 767 projects sanctioned since the commencement of NLCPR in 1998-99 about 375 projects have been completed as a result of improved monitoring and concerted efforts, official sources here today said.

The total outflow from NLCPR to the North East States during the last two years from May 2004 to May 2006 has been Rs. 1,329 crore.

There also has been a significant increase in the allocation and expenditure of various Central Ministries and Departments for the North East Region during the last two years.

The allocation during 2006-07 has been kept at Rs. 12,621 crores, an increase of about 86 per cent over Rs. 6,787 crores allocated during 2004-05.
