Note:  In the process of decision-making for putting up proposals to the Central/State Government, a High Level Committee comprising of the Administrative Head i.e. the Secretary, the Executive Head i.e. the Director, the Additional Director and the Officer-in-Charge of the Scheme is formed.
          The decision of the Administrative Head will be final. The Financial Decision however lies with the Director who in consultation with the Technical experts will work out the project/programme outlay.
          The channel of supervision involves the Executive head who will direct his subordinate Officers/Scheme In-Charge and Technical experts to survey and study/assess the project for its feasibility with beneficial outputs of the said project/scheme. The team of experts will then make a thorough investigation on the project viability keeping impact assessment and project accountability in mind. They will then submit the feasibility report to the Director for onward submission to the Government for final approval.

What are the arrangements to communicate the decisions to the public?
With whom/authority the final decision lies?
          For development projects involving community/village/public, the Department calls a meeting of the village/community heads and a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is signed during the meeting for undertaking such projects.
          However, for normal Departmental schemes, the technical staff will communicate with the public through field survey for actual project feasibility. The project of the public in such cases depends on the recommendation of the technical officers.
          However, in all cases, the final decision lies with the Head of the Department i.e. the Director.
