Singh Hooda on Saturday asked the Centre to give lump sum grants to
states and allow them to utilise these funds as per their
Addressing the National Development Council meeting here,
he said most of the central schemes had a pan-India
perspective which left very little scope for flexibility to
meet state specific requirements.

sum grants are provided to state governments and they are
given the flexibility to utilise the funds as per their local
requirements as in case with the Rashtriya Krishi Vikas
Yojana, which is a success story in this regard," Hooda said.
Observing that the present classification of state
outlays under `Plan` and `non-Plan` is not an optimal method
for allocating resources, Hooda said "the accounting

He suggested the Plan and non-Plan distinction may be
done away with and the outlays may be classified as capital
and revenue only.
On Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission
(JNNRUM), Hooda said the central project should be "redesigned
and improved" to help realise its full potential.
