Something Fishy in (SJSRY) Scheme in Mira Bhayander…RTI Activist

SJSRY Scheme implementation in Mira-Bhayander

Mira-Bhayander Municipal Corporation has been always in the lime light. Normally its for the wrong reasons !!,here is another incident of how we say that.

Back in June-2009, an RTI was filed with the Mira-Bhayander Municipal Corporation by an RTI Activist, who does not wish to be named, asking the details of (SJSRY) Swarna Jayanti Shahari Rozgar Yojna in which it was asked to provide details of what initiatives have been taken under the same, But there was no reply given by the MBMC .

The Swarna Jayanti Shahari Rojgar Yojana (SJSRY) is a unified Centrally Sponsored Scheme launched a fresh in lieu of the erstwhile Urban Poverty Alleviation Programmes viz., Nehru Rojgar Yojana (NRY), Prime Minister’s Integrated Urban Poverty Eradication Programme (PMIUPEP) and Urban Basic Services for the Poor (UBSP),with the below mentioned Objectives.

* Gainful Employment to Urban Poor, Unemployed and Underemployed.

* Setting up self Employment ventures and provision of wage-employment.

* Community Empowerment through creation of suitable community     structures on UBSP pattern.

* Capability Building, Women’s Group for small enterprises, Women’s Thrift-cum-Credit Societies.

In November to December 2010 period, The Mira-Bhayander Municipal Corporation put up few Cabins stating they are under the (SJSRY) as Support Centres for “Mahila Bachat Gat” but under anonymity its coming to light that the Officials handling this had approached a vendor for providing bills without supplying the Cabins, for which he was offered to be paid 8% of the bill value, but he refused., Even the cabins which have been put are closed, “we have never seen anybody sitting there” says the RTI Activist.

We will ask the MBMC to give out the details of Number of Cabins made along with copies of the bills of vendors who made the same, Along with a Site Inspection report of where they have been installed, this should send the irregularities tumbling out of the box or will send them in action to immediately sort out or cover up the irregularities says the anonymous RTI Activist.
