SPECIAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN
A High Power Committee for Redressal of Regional Imbalances (HPCRRI) headed by late Dr.D.M.Nanjundappa was constituted in October, 2000 to study the regional disparities existing in the state and to advise the Government on appropriate strategies for minimizing inter district and inter regional disparities and achieving balanced development and also to suggest an appropriate institutional mechanism for implementing the strategy. The Committee submitted its final report in June, 2002.-
The HPCRRI classified a total of 114 taluks as most backward, more backward and backward while the remaining 61 taluks are considered to be relatively developed.
The division-wise breakup of these 114 taluks is as follows:
To date, several recommendations of the HPCRRI have been acted upon by successive Governments and the last, major recommendations to be taken up for implementation was the Eight Year Special Development Plan (SDP) which was introduced in the budget of 2007-08. In view of the high priority attached to development of backward regions in the State particularly in northern parts of Karnataka, Government have constituted a High Power Committee (HPC) with members representing academia, administrators, persons in public life etc. to take stock of the implementation of the recommendations of the HPCRRI and suggest such actions as are appropriate to accelerate the reduction of regional imbalances.
Resource Allocation as per CDI
The resource allocation by Departments should be made by adopting the division-wise CDIs mentioned above for each division by multiplying the total allocation with percentage ratio for that division in the following manner:
Within the division the sub allocation among the most backward, more backward and backward taluka may be guided by the nature of the scheme intended for implementation. The interse allocation between talukas should be guided by higher proportion of resources to the most backward taluka for which the CDI of the individual taluks can be used as a basis. However, allocation should be pragmatic and normative and guided by the ground realities with respect to various infrastructure and other deficits.
