It will also maintain check and balance on the implementation of the scheme by Government agencies.
Stating that the poorer sections of people are facing difficult time, the KDCPGC will also oversee the distribution of rations under AAY, BPL and APL including disaster management funds that are distributed by the administration.

The committee will also look into the problems of roadside vendors and also the difficulties faced by our farmers due to non availability of agriculture produce market facilities. Besides, focus will be made towards sincere implementation of the Mudra loan so that interest MSME can avail the opportunities towards enhancement of the economy, it said.
