The Central Government has issued grants to 25 states including West Bengal (West Bengal) in view of COVID-19 Pendamic. This amount has been released by the Department of Expenditure of the Ministry of Finance. The grants are for all three categories of Panchayati Raj Institutions – village, block and district. Uttar Pradesh (Uttar Pradesh) has received the highest amount of Rs 1441.6 crore, Maharashtra (Maharashtra) 861.4 crore and West Bengal (West Bengal) Rs 652.2 crore. The amount released on Saturday is the first installment of ‘free grant’ for the year 2021-22. It can be used, among other things, for various preventive and relief measures necessary to fight the Kovid-19 epidemic.
Thus, it will increase the resources of the three categories of panchayats to fight the Corona Pendamic. According to the recommendations of the 15th Finance Commission, the first installment of the free grant was to be released to the states in June, 2021. However, in view of the current status of COVID-19 Pendamic and the recommendations of the Ministry of Panchayati Raj, the Ministry of Finance has decided to release the grant in advance of the normal program.
Apart from this, the 15th Finance Commission had also imposed certain conditions for the release of free grants. These conditions include online availability in public sector accounts of a certain percentage of rural local bodies. But given the prevailing circumstances, the condition for release of the first installment of free grant has been omitted.
All kinds of measures are being taken in the country to control the rising infection of Corona virus. Pendamic is growing so fast that many states are facing acute shortage of oxygen and essential medicines. In this bad time, the Supreme Court of the country has also kept its eyes on it continuously. On Saturday, the Supreme Court has constituted a 12-member National Task Force for the allocation of oxygen and essential medicines to the states.
