Budget Speech para.129 : " 'Sukithapurawara' Township Development Program which covers all 9 Provinces is being implemented to enhance inclusive and sustainable urbanization in the country. Rs.3,000 Mn. has been already allocated. I propose to allocate a further Rs.2,000 Mn. to facilitate this Program."
Information was obtained through the Action Plan and Progress Report available on the website of the ministry. The request for information filed under the Right to Information Act No 12 of 2016 also directed us to the online source of information.
Based on the information made available, progress as at 31 December 2019 was assessed as 79% of the target set for 2019. The total allocation and activities given in the Action Plan and Progress Report did not align i.e. activities totalling Rs. 200 mn did not appear in the Progress Report although they appeared in the Action Plan. These activities were assumed to be 100% completed. The completion level of the remaining activities were taken as per the Progress Report. Overall progress of the proposal was computed as a weighted average of the progress of all activities. The weighting was on the basis of the expenditure allocation of each activity.
The Ministry of Urban Development, Water Supply and Housing Facilities was ranked 8th out of 16 government institutions assessed in 2019. The rank was determined based on the weighted average score of 61.3 received by the ministry (weighted average based on allocation). This score was based on the disclosure of information on 7 proposals assessed in 2019, which were under the purview of the ministry.
