Grant received under the 13th Finance Commission (2010-2015) through the Revenue Department
The 13th Finance Commission had observed that effective disaster response requires trained manpower to deal with complex situations where effective and speedy handling reduces the impact of a disaster on human life and property. It was therefore felt necessary to continuously undertake measures to build capacity amongst those responsible for disaster response and augmenting public awareness.
Accordingly, the 13th Finance Commission has recommended a grant of Rs. 525 Crores (for all the 28 States of the country) for building capacity within the administrative machinery for better handling of disaster response and for preparation of district and state level disaster management plans as envisaged under the Disaster Management Act of 2005. The total allocation for Gujarat is Rs. 30 Crores (for the year 2010-2011 to 2014-2015) having five equal installments of Rs. 6 Crores per year.
The grant is transferred to the Revenue Department of the State Government on a yearly basis by the Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure, Finance Commission Division, Government of India, New Delhi. On request of the Revenue Department, GSDMA had prepared a list of proposed projects / activities to be taken up from the 13th Finance Commission Grant and the same was submitted to the State Government for approval.
As per the approval accorded by the State Government, Revenue Department is transferring the grant to GSDMA for implementing the projects on a yearly basis. GSDMA, in turn, submits the utilization certificate for grant utilized to the Revenue Department which in turn, submits the same to the Government of India.
For the year 2010-2011 and 2011-2012, GSDMA has spent an amount of Rs. 8.51 Crores against Rs. 8.12 Crores received from the Revenue Department as 13th Finance Commission Grant for implementing projects which were approved by the State Government.
