12.3     Procedure for allocation of funds and rice:

 

As per MDM guidelines , the schools/ institutions should maintain  one month  buffer stock of foodgrain and funds  i.e. school should  have one month advance  ration and  also  cooking cost for one month .

To ensure the smooth implementation of scheme, the following procedure may   be  adopted for allocating / disbursing rice and funds :

 

 

Distribution of Rice:

 

 

 

To ensure the timely supply of rice, the rice to Block offices / Schools should be made on quarterly basis instead of monthly basis, this will considerably curtail the time taken by HPSCSC/ PDS depot holder for lifting of rice from FCI godown and making available at PDS depot.

Since, Government of India allocates the rice to the State on the basis of average enrollment, number of school days and unutilized rice lying with the concerned Institution / Block / HPSCSC. Hence, the demand of rice may be obtained from the concerned School / Block. Before making allocation the following points may be kept into consideration:

1          Enrollment   of Block / Institution.

 

2          No of school days.

 

3          Approved norms i.e. 100 gms for primary and 150 gms for Upper

 

Primary

 

4    Unutilized rice lying with the School/ Block.

 

 

 

(Enrollment of Block/School * No of school days in the quarter/ month * approved food norms)- unutilized rice lying with the Block/School)

 

 

Further, the copy of allocation invariably is sent to the concerned Block. The Block should send the copy of allocation to the concerned Centre Head Teacher, who may ensure that every institution / school should lift the allocated quantity of   rice   . The concerned CHT may also ensure the reconciliation of rice with the allocation made by the Deputy Director and rice is lifted by the schools under his jurisdiction on monthly / quarterly basis, as the case may be.

 

12.4     Distribution of budget / funds and submission of utilization certificate:

 

 

 

The budget of MDM Scheme is being allocated / distributed to the BEEOs through e-vitran, the web site of the Finance Department. The BEEO may release the first quarter funds without seeking the requirement of expenditure from the Schools/SMCs. Thereafter, the funds are released after taking the utilization certificate from the concerned Schools / SMC and bills submitted by the Schools / implementing agencies be settled within fortnight. Further,  the  BEEOs  may  also  ensure  that  before  sanctioning  the  next  installment,  the advances may be adjusted, if any, given to the SMCs / implementing agencies / Schools. The funds may also be distributed on quarterly basis. Before making allocation the following points may be kept into consideration:

 

 

1)         Enrollment   of Block / Institution.

 

2)        No of School days.

 

3)        Approved norms i.e.

 

PRIMARY = Rs. 2.89 per child per day

 

UPPER PRIMARY= Rs. 4.33 per child per day

 

4)        Unutilized funds lying with the school/ block

 

 

(Enrollment of Block/School * No of school days in the quarter/ month * approved cooking cost)- unutilized funds lying with the block/school)

 

 

The funds to the Blocks / Schools may be released through E-banking. The intimation of funds released may be send to the concerned SMC/ institution/ school.
