Slow progress of NERCORMP in Arunachal

By STAFF REPORTER

ITANAGAR, July 16 - Admitting �slow progress� of implementation of the ambitious North Eastern Region Community Resource Management Project (NERCORMP), in Tirap, Changlang and Longding districts of the State, Arunachal Chief Minister Nabam Tuki today assured the Assembly that the State Government would move the North Eastern Council (NEC) to accelerate the project implementation process.

�I have already taken up the matter with the DoNER Minister Jitendra Singh in presence of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh during the recent Guwahati meeting and requested him to speed up the work,� Tuki said while responding to a supplementary from Wangki Lowang of Namsang constituency during question hour in the Assembly today.

Tuki said even if the Department of Tirap, Changlang and Longding Affairs (DoTCL) has been made nodal department for implementation of NERCORMP, it was not given any role in administration or execution of the project.

NERCORMP, already implemented in other parts of NE, is a livelihood and rural development project aimed at transforming the lives of vulnerable groups in NE in a sustainable manner through improved management of their resource base in a way that contributes to preservation and restoration of the environment.

�The Rs 500-crore special programme was launched by Government of India through NEC under DoNER Ministry, for the three easternmost districts of Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur. NEC is directly administering and executing the project in Tirap, Changlang and Longding districts through Community Resource Management Societies being chaired by Deputy Commissioners of respective districts,� Tuki said.

In 2014-15, a little above Rs 6.20 crore was allocated by NEC for Tirap and Longding district, and nine out of 20 villages under Namsang constituency in Tirap district have so far been covered under the project.
