By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 25 - Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal today directed various departments to submit utilisation certificate of funds allotted by the Central Government on time so that demands can be placed for more funds, stated an official press release here.

Speaking at a meeting here today for reviewing the utilisation status of Central funds, the Chief Minister instructed the departments to submit utilisation certificate on time so that development of the State can be speeded up.

Sonowal also directed the departments to conduct a survey of the market demand for different items produced in the State and importable products. He instructed the Agriculture department to prepare a vision document outlining the roadmap for boosting the agriculture sector and to put in place a transparent system for seeds distribution.
