Appraisal Work

As a part of techno-economic appraisal, PAMD conducts comprehensive appraisal of Plan schemes and projects costing Rs. 500 crore and above and prepares appraisal notes in consultation with the subject divisions of the Planning Commission. The stipulated timeframe for issue of Appraisal Note by PAMD is four weeks from the date of receipt of EFC/PIB memo. The appraisal by PAMD facilitates decision-making in respect of projects/schemes considered by the Public Investment Board (PIB), the Expenditure Finance Committee (EFC) and the Committee of Public Investment Board (CPIB), depending upon the nature and size of proposals. The Division also appraises proposals of Ministry of Railways costing Rs.500 crore and above to be considered by the Expanded Board of Railways (EBR). Revised cost estimate (RCE) proposals are also appraised by the Division to analyse the factors attributed to cost and time overruns and their impact on the viability.

During 2018 (up to 30.09.2018), a total of 94 appraisal notes on EFC/PIB/EBR proposals involving outlay of Rs. 1809772.06 have been issued.

Task Force on Project Management

The Public sector projects in India suffer significant time and cost overruns due to poor project management. Considering the need to infuse better project management practices, a Task-Force under the Chairmanship of CEO, NITI Aayog was constituted comprising of representatives of the various Departments/Ministries and entities.

 Evidence based Policy Making Conference

NITI Aayog has been engaging with State Governments to evolve a shared vision of national development and strategies to share the best practices. In this context, India Consensus - a partnership between Tata Trusts and Copenhagen Consensus - presented their findings on cost-benefit analysis undertaken across policy areas in Andhra Pradesh and Rajasthan in June 2018 in NITI Aayog. The presentation was chaired by Dr Rajiv Kumar, Vice-Chairman, NITI Aayog and was attended by Additional Chief Secretaries/Principal Secretaries/Secretaries dealing with the Planning Department of 32 States and Union Territories, Joint Secretaries from 14 Ministries, senior officers of NITI Aayog, eminent economists and researchers.
