Dehradun: Expressing disappointment over some government departments spending less than the budgeted expenditure on SC/ST sub-plans, Chief Minister Harish Rawat said the heads of concerned departments will be held responsible if the targeted expenses are not met in the ongoing fiscal.
Reviewing the manner in which the Schedule Caste and Schedule Tribe sub-plans budget was spent during the year, Uttarakhand Chief Minister yesterday said the departments concerned should send in their budgetry requirements to the government keeping in view the targets set under the sub-plans.
Rawat said the departments should ensure that every penny of the approved budget outlay is spent within the given time frame.
"If this is not done, the concerned department heads will be held responsible," he said adding that expenses under the sub-plans will again be reviewed next month.
If any discrepancies are found, the concerned department heads will be taken to task, he said.
