MEMBER OF LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY
LOCAL AREAD DVELOPMENT SCHEME (MLALADS)
The Government of India had framed
"Member of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme" under which
MPs can recommend works to be carried out in their constituencies. Since the
MLAs are also frequently approached by their constituents for carrying out
small works of capital nature, the Govt. of Delhi has framed a scheme along
the pattern of the MPs Local Area Development Scheme. The scheme was started
in the year 1994-95 when the fund under the scheme was Rs.1.00 crore per MLA
per year. After gaining some experience the Govt. decided to revise the
scheme & increase the fund to Rs.1.40 crore per MLA per year w.e.f.
1999-2000. From the financial year 2000-01 the limit of Rs.1.40 crore has
been raised to Rs.1.90 crore per MLA. And
from 2004-05, the limit has been further increased to Rs.2.00 crore and w.e.f
2011-12 the limit has been further increased to Rs. 4 crore. Under this scheme of "Strengthening and
Augmentation of Infrastructure facilities in each Assembly
Constituency", commonly known as MLALAD’s each MLA can suggest small
works of capital nature to be done in their constituencies upto the tune of
Rs.4.00 crores in a year with each individual project not exceeding Rs.2
The works recommended under this
scheme should confirm to the general pattern of programmes and projects being
implemented by the local bodies/ departments of Govt. of Delhi. These works
will be sanctioned and implemented in the same manner, as the other works of
these bodies are being sanctioned and implemented.
Wherever required technical and
administrative sanction of the works falling within the scope of this scheme
and for which the MLAs have exercised their choice will be given after
following the normal departmental procedures applicable to the local bodies and
other Government Departments and the actual expenditure should in no case
exceed the sanction.

and only such works will be taken up which can be executed / completed within
