MP Local Area Development Scheme
The Members of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS) enables Members of Parliament (MPs) to recommend development-related works based on the local needs of their constituencies. The scheme lays emphasis on the creation of durable community assets of national priority such as drinking water, primary education, public health, sanitation and roads, among others. The scheme is fully funded by the Government of India and allocates a sum of Rs. 5 crore per annum to each MP. The programme is implemented and monitored by the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MoSPI) along with the State Nodal Departments and District Authorities.
