33 local bodies to submit projects

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: As many as 33 local self-government institutions will submit detailed project reports for developing infrastructure under the Urban Infrastructure Development Scheme for Small and Medium Towns (UIDSSMT) this week, Local Self-government Minister Paloli Mohammed Kutty has said.

Mr. Kutty said in reply to questions in the Assembly on Wednesday that Rs.41.419 crore had been spent under the scheme.

Securing land was one of the main impediments in taking up projects under it. But the rate of fund absorption under the scheme was much higher than that in the previous years.
