New Delhi: Under grant-in-aid scheme for construction and expansion of schools, hostels and technical / vocational training centres, some 439 proposals out of those received up to 31.03.2011 from NGOs are pending with the Maulana Azad Education Foundation (MAEF).

Giving this information in written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha on Thursday, Salman Khurshid, Minister of Minority Affairs, informed the House that the main reasons for pendency of proposals with MAEF are as follows:

(i) Some proposals are pending for want of required documents from the NGOs;
(ii) With respect to some proposals inspection reports are not received;
(iii) Inspection required with respect to some proposals; and
(iv) Availability of financial resources.

Khurshid further informed the House that in order to clear the pending proposals expeditiously, the applications which are complete in all respects are considered by the MAEF on first come first serve basis. In order to augment the financial resources so as to enable MAEF to clear more cases, the corpus fund of MAEF has been increased from Rs.200 crore to Rs.700 crore during the 11th Five Year Plan period.
