Ministry of Planning, Development & Reforms (MoDP&R) has proposed a procedure to help clear the liabilities of closed projects. These liabilities mostly relate to payment of salaries to project staff, outstanding bills etc.
After closure of project the PC-IV is required to be submitted to the Planning Commission for undertaking evaluation. But in many cases it is not submitted
Now according to the newly proposed procedure, if PC-IV has been submitted to the Planning Commission, the project authorities would be required to prepare a new PC-I involving only the cost of outstanding liabilities, get the approval of competent forum and then pay the audit cleared liability(ies) by first seeking Technical Supplementary Grant/Re-appropriation after observing all formalities.
Where PC-IV has not been submitted, the PC-I of the project may be placed before the competent forum for approval to pay the audit cleared liabilities after seeking Technical Supplementary Grant/Re-appropriation and observing all formalities. In both cases, clearance of the liability(ies) would involve work already done. No other activities would be permissible in such projects.
