About CPSMS

There are over a 1045 Centrally Sponsored and Central Sector Schemes being implemented through the different ministries of the Government of India. Given the diversity in the implementation hierarchy, the number of implementing units and the geographical reach of these schemes it has been a challenge to have meaningful information on these schemes. Thus the need for a central monitoring, evaluation and accounting system for the Plan Schemes has been widely acknowledged. This not only effects the monitoring of the Plan Schemes but also has implications for financial management in the public sector.
The Economic Survey (2007-08) emphasized the need of output and outcome monitoring and creating knowledge-based expertise for effective financial monitoring of the Plan Schemes. Subsequently the Finance Minister in his Budget Speech (2008-09) announced the setting of the Central Plan Schemes Monitoring System towards establishment of a comprehensive Decision Support System and Management Information System. The intended outcome is was to generate and monitor scheme-wise and State-wise releases for the Central Plan and Centrally Sponsored Schemes.
The 11th Plan Document recognized the deficiencies in the existing accounting system for the Plan Schemes and its inability to support informed planning, budgeting and effective monitoring of these schemes. It also underlined the need for a consolidated financial information system for the Plan Schemes.
The EFC of the Planning Commission approved the implementation of CPSMS in a phased manner with clearly defined activities to be accomplished during the fiscal year 2008-09. The Finance Minister accorded its approval in principle for the entire scheme. Administrative and financial approval was for Part A of the Scheme with an outlay of Rs. 24.25 crores.
Part A
  1. Mapping of Plan Schemes with the code of accounts and compiling information on State-wise. Overall releases under flagship schemes are now available; the following refinements would have to be taken up: (a) State-wise and Agency-wise data releases (b) Reports on releases on sub-scheme / component level.
  2. Release data for all other Centrally Sponsored Schemes and Central Plan Schemes on the same lines as explained above in respect of flagship programs.
  3. Capture of data on sub-sanctions, going progressively down the line right up to the implementing agencies. This would involve making complete lists of implementing agencies at each level, the details of the associated bank accounts. As well as the specification of the component of the scheme being handled by each agency.
  4. Capture all expenditure details from the lower level on standardized formats.
  5. Components 3&4 above are to be taken up for implementation on a pilot basis in respect of a few programmes in a few states in order to detect implementation problems and to sort them out.
  6. Payment to the ultimate beneficiary through banking channels.
  7. Report generation capabilities should be integrated into the transaction databases that are created at each stage of the roll out. This should be available at a minimum to show the State-wise and lower level allocation of funds. All these information in these databases should be available in the public domain for viewing and download usage. This entire database would constitute the core accounting system.
The approval also stated that after the pilot and an assessment / evaluation of its results, a detailed scheme would be drawn up along with the DPR which may undergo suitable appraisal and approval before implementation.
The Scheme is being implemented by the Office of the Controller General of Accounts as a Plan Scheme under the Planning Commission. Accordingly a Project Implementation was constituted vide Planning Commission order No. 21/1/2008-FR dated 25th July ’08 as under:
  1. Controller General of Accounts: [Chairman]
  2. Dy. Comptroller and Auditor General of India Or his representative: [Co-Chairman]
  3. AS& F.A. Planning Commission or his representative
  4. Advisor (FR) Planning Commission
  5. Director General, NIC or his representative
  6. Additional Controller General of Accounts
  7. Joint CGA, CPSMS: [Member Secretary]
The committee has been delegated the powers of competent financial authority and is responsible for overseeing the implementation and financial management of the Plan Accounting & Public Finance Accounting Scheme (PA&PFMS).
A web enabled application was developed in the office of the CGA to serve as a common platform for monitoring of the Central Sector and Centrally Sponsored Schemes. The Sanction ID Generation (SID) Module was accordingly launched on 1st April 2008 and was hosted on the e-Lekha platform. All sanctions issued by the Central Ministries under the Plan Schemes are now identified with a unique Sanction ID that enables the tracking of releases as per their accounting and budget heads across the different implementing agencies
As per the approval pilot studies were also conducted by the Office of the Controller General of Accounts and the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.


Definitions

Additional Central Assistance (ACA) Linked Schemes
  1. Accelerated Irrigation Benefits Program (AIBP) was initiated in 1996-97 to extend Central assistance to States for large irrigation schemes, for early completion of ongoing projects and for accelerating creation of additional irrigation potential. The AIBP has now to meet the targets of the Bharat Nirman programme viz. (a) Major; (b) Medium; (c) Extension / Renovation / Modernization (ERM) projects; (d) irrigation projects under the Prime Minister’s rehabilitation package for agrarian distresses districts of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Maharashtra districts and (e) surface water Minor-irrigation Schemes of Special Category States and of drought prone and tribal areas in Non-Special Category States.
    The scheme is funded by the Ministry of Finance and administered by the Ministry of Water Resources.
  2. Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) was launched as an Additional Central Assistance (ACA) scheme in 2005 with the objectives of providing focused attention to integrated development of infrastructural services in urban areas. The scheme aims at securing effective linkages between asset creation and asset management through a slew of reforms for long term project sustainability; planned development of identified cities including peri-urban areas, scaling up delivery of civic amenities and provision of utilities with emphasis on universal access to urban poor; special focus on urban renewal program for the old city areas to reduce congestion; provision of basic services to the urban poor including security of tenure at affordable prices; improved housing, water supply and sanitation and ensuring delivery of other existing universal services of the government for education, health and social security.
    The scheme is funded by the Ministry of Finance and administered by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation.
  3. Backwards Regions Grant Fund (BRGF) was launched in 2006 and is designed to redress regional imbalances in development. The fund will provide financial resources for supplementing and converging existing developmental inflows into identified districts so as to: (a) bridge critical gaps in local infrastructure and other development requirements that are not being adequately met through existing inflows; (b) strengthen , to this end Panchayat and Municipality level governance with more appropriate capacity building to facilitate participatory planning, decision making, implementing and monitoring their plans; and (c) provide professional support to local bodies for planning, implementation and monitoring their plans. The broad aim is to improve the performance and delivery of critical functions assigned to Panchayats and counter possible efficiency and equity losses on account of inadequate local capacity.
    The scheme is funded by the Ministry of Finance / Ministry of Panchayati Raj and administered by the Ministry of Panchayati Raj.
  4. National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) was launched in 2005 to encapsulate the finer points of governance like citizen centricity, service orientation, accountability and transparency. The plan focuses on key government services to citizens (G2C) and businesses (G2B). The plan also supports components aimed at creating the right governance and institutional mechanism, core infrastructure, policies and standards and the necessary legal framework for adoption of e-governance.
    The scheme is funded by the Ministry of Finance / Department of Information Technology and administered by the Department of Information Technology.
  5. National Social Assistance Program (NSAP) was launched in 1995 and has undergone certain changes and in the present form includes three benefits as its components, viz. national old age pension scheme, national family benefit scheme and Annapurna. In 2002-03 the NSAP was transferred from a centrally sponsored scheme to the ACA scheme.
    The scheme is funded by the Ministry of Finance and administered by the Ministry of Rural Development.
