Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister
Mayawati today directed officials to provide financial
approval to construction works only after ensuring that the
land required for the purpose as well as executing authority
for undertaking the works has been selected.

The Chief Minister, who held a review meeting with
senior officials, here asked them to ensure that financial
approvals were granted only after ensuring availability of
land besides the selection of the executing authority, an
official release issued here said.

It has been seen that following delay in selecting
executing authority as well as land, government funds are not
immediately utilised and people fail to avail its timely
benefit from such projects, the release said.

The Chief Minister also directed for formulating a
policy for selection of architects by the executing
authorities and government departments involved in
construction works.

Issuing directives, Mayawati said all ponds to be dug
under the "Adarsh Talab yojna" be completed before July 15 and
stressed that FIRs be filed against those encroaching upon the
lands allotted through pattas.

Mayawati also asked the chief secretary to undertake
survey of the "Mahamaya Garib arthik madad yojna" through
video conferencing.
