Mumbai: With a view to putting in place an institutional mechanism to track various stalled projects and also to remove implementation bottlenecks on a fast-track basis, Maharashtra government has set up a Project Monitoring Group (PMG).

The PMG portal, which has been linked to the state government's official website, will track all the projects -public and private sector.

This group would pro-actively pursue the stalled projects so that they are commissioned on time.

A project involving investment between Rs 50 crore and Rs 1,000 crore, or any other critical projects in sectors such as infrastructure, manufacturing, power, would be tracked by the group till its implementation.

According to the government, the group provides transparency and efficiency in the working environment, minimises the processing delay, helps in timely disposal of important issues, enables one to work from anywhere, anytime, leads to a paperless working and provides ease and flexibility in the retrieval of various reports.

Any Ministry/Department or any private entrepreneur can submit the stalled investment projects to the PMG. The list of Nodal Officers is available on the website.

The list of projects considered by PMG will be available on the website and only those projects will be considered in which issues/problems are indicated.
