The Centre has modified Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) scheme to provide funds for construction of Anganwadi centres (AWCs) in that area on a regular basis in order to meet teh special needs and status of North East.

It has been decided to make allocation for the construction of AWCs in NE states on a regular basis to the extent of utilisation of residual funds out of ten per cent of mandatory allocation for these states, the official sources here today said.

The Ministry of Women and Child Development has already approved the construction of buildings for about 20,000 AWCs sanctioned till 2005.

During 2006-07, more than Rs 144 crore was provided to north-eastern States and Sikkim, the sources added.
