Since its inception, the Scheme has benefited the local community by meeting various developmental needs such as drinking water facility, education, electricity, health and family welfare, irrigation, non-conventional energy, community centers, public libraries, bus stands/stops, roads, pathways and bridges, sports, etc. The works are recommended by the Hon’ble MPs and sanction, execution and monitoring of the works is undertaken by the District Authorities as per the administrative, technical and financial rules of the State Governments. The scheme is governed by a set of MPLADS guidelines. The annual entitlement per MP per year is Rs.5 crore with effect from 2011-12.
