I. NAME OF THE SECTOR                    : 17. SECRETARIAT ECONOMIC SERVICES

 

II. INTRODUCTION OF THE SECTOR    :

 

In order to undertake Plan coordination in a systematic and scientific manner, prepare realistic returns and reports for reviewing plan progress etc.  a separate monitoring and evaluation cell was set up at the Administration level in the Secretariat with a skeleton staff under the supervision of a Research Officer prior to Vth Five Year Plan.  Although the population of the territory increased manifold since then and the Islands witnessed tremendous developments through Five Year Plans and Annual Plans, the skeleton set up of planning machinery of the Administration remained as such.

 

The Expert group of Kochi University of Science & Technology constituted under the aegis of the Island Development Authority in their phase- I report on    restructuring/redesigning of the Administrative set up recommended that ".... we have proposed present restructuring of the Administrative set up in such a way that the Administrator is free from the numerous routine works so that he will get more time in formulation of the long term strategic plans for the development of the   territory.  We strongly recommend that since the thrust of the Administration is on development programmes and the planning & information services be strengthened by creating a new information/Managements and Planning Cell with the head of the cell directly reporting to the Administrator/Chief Secretary..."

 

Planning & Statistics Dept. is the nodal department for entire plan matters and thus entrusted with the responsibility of formulation, appraisal/approval, implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
