Annual Plans :
Five Year Plan and annual Plan preparation is the primary responsibility of the Planning Department. The Department receives estimates, demands and recommendations from various departments that are put together to derive next year’s priorities, requirements and budget. Previous year’s allocations & expenditure, revenues received & expected, growth projections – current and future and demands and requirements from individual departments are a few references that help in preparing Annual and Five Year plans. Presentations by the State Planning department to the Planning Commission declaring fiscal, economic, social and sectoral revenues, allocations and expenditure as a part of Annual Plan presentation is a key annual activity of the department. The presentations made to the Planning Commission and the approved Annual Plans by the Commission are put here for public viewing.

12th Five Year plan Approach paper :
12th Five Year Plan Approach Paper This year being the commencing year of the 12th Five Year Plan (2012-2017), the activity of putting the actual planning into place started earnestly. Understanding the criticality of initiating specialized planning based on inputs and indicators, Hyderabad based premier inter-disciplinary research and training institute - Center for Economic and Social Studies was approached to initiate the process of planning. CESS was commissioned to study and analyze the socio-economic and human development studies and the varied developmental indicators in the state to identify the current status, gaps concerns and prepare an Approach Paper to the 12th Five Year Plan. A draft Approach Paper to the 12th Plan was prepared by subject experts from CESS taking into account the 11th plan appraisal, varied development indicators of the state, sector and department wise appraisals and other primary and secondary data. The document is divided into 15 chapters, containing an overview, sector wise deliberations and a chapter on the concept of Results Framework Based performance monitoring. The prepared draft points out the concern, gaps, and recommends the focus areas that need to be incorporated within the 12th Five Year Plan for facilitating faster and sustainable economic growth in the state.

Quarterly Review of Annual Plan 2011-12 :
A quarterly review of the Annual Plan is done by the Planning Department on Allocations, Financial expenditure, targets and achievements to keep track of the unfolding of the plan. The routine review identifies the amounts spent and remaining. To gain insight into the trends like the department with the most expenditure, least expenditure, the spending pattern, ranking the heads on the basis of targets achieved etc. an analysis of the Quarterly Review of December 2012 was attempted. This analysis brings out clearly the best and least performing departments, the quantum and magnitude of difference between different sectors and the pace of plan implementation. This kind of analysis of head wise, sub-head wise financial expenditure against allotted outlays and the physical achievement of set targets provides both a Macro and Micro review of working of sectors / heads provides insights for identifying and planning next year’s planning exercise.

Government Initiatives

close
Government of Andhra pradesh initiated various programmes like Twenty Point Programme,Mass Contact Progamme,Flagship Programme,Constituency development programme,MPLADS,etc.,
Twenty Point Programme:–
TPP refers to a set of socio-economic schemes delivered by states for the welfare of weaker sections. Started in 1975, the TPP monitors performance of 20 vital schemes implemented by both the Central and State governments. The schemes under TPP-2006 are in accordance with the priorities contained in the National Common Minimum Programme (NCMP), the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of the United Nations and SAARC Social Charter. The 20 points and 66 items which are monitored individually by different Central Nodal Ministries covers various socio-economic aspects like poverty, employment, education, housing, health, agriculture, land-reforms, irrigation, drinking water, afforestation, environment protection, energy to rural areas, welfare of weaker sections of the society and e-governance etc. AP has been in the forefront of implementation of the programme, and was ranked 9th (2009-10) and 1st in the country in 2010-11. The Planning Department is the nodal agency at the State level and reviews the programme every month with the departments concerned and ranks the districts based on their annual performance.

Constituency development programme :-
Data collection and analysis have been mostly used for arriving at trends and in making and monitoring policies by researchers and government departments. Demographic, Economic, Sector Wise, Scheme wise data is available from varied inputs and is generally collated by the Planning Department to assist in its plans and policies. This data reaches public domain in the form of varied documents like the Statistical Abstract, Socio-economic Survey, District handbooks and other types of publications and reports. Sensing the need to create data base which can be used by political representatives in understanding the issues of concern, performance of schemes in their constituencies, and the areas that need to be focused upon, the Planning Department of AP initiated putting the existing data in a constituency wise format.

To capture the pace of development at Assembly Constituency level, the Planning Department put together data on few indicators like Education, Health, ICDS, Housing, Flagship Programs, Rachhabanda, and Funds availability and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) target to be achieved by 2015. MLAS from all parties, District Collectors and allied functionaries were given the prepared information and to facilitate information aided discussion process at district / sub district levels and take the district administration on systematically triggered high growth mode of functioning.

Member of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS):
In 1993-94, MPLAD Scheme was launched, an amount of Rs. 5 lakh per Member of Parliament was allotted which became Rupees one crore per annum per MP constituency from 1994-95.This was stepped up to Rs. 2 crore from 1998-99 and now it has been increased to Rs.5 crore from the financial year 2011-12.
Under this scheme, each MP has the choice to suggest to the District Collector for, works to the tune of Rs.5 Crores per annum to be taken up in his/her constituency. The Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament can recommend works in one or more districts in the State from where he/she has been elected. The Nominated Members of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha may select any Districts from any State in the Country for implementation of their choice of work under the scheme.
The objective of the scheme is to enable MPs to recommend works of developmental nature with emphasis on the creation of durable community assets based on the locally felt needs to be taken up in their Constituencies. Right from inception of the Scheme, durable assets of national priorities viz.drinking water, primary education, public health, sanitation and roads, etc. are being created.

Flagship programme :-

Government has initiated a number of welfare programmes to translate its promises to the people for socially just and inclusive growth. Certain ongoing programmes were consolidated or altered to increase their efficiency and certain new programmes were initiated in important areas like employment, health, education, rural infrastructure, urban renewal and providing people a legal framework for the Right to Information.
1)Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, : It is an ongoing programme for universalisation of elementary education, was consolidated by providing additional financial allocations and creation of a dedicated Prathmik Shiksha Kosh through a 2% cess introduced for the first time. The provision of cooked mid-day meal was universalised.
2)National Rural Health Mission:This mission is to move from vertical disease management programmes to comprehensive healthcare. This has been achieved through an intersectoral district health plan, which provides for a community health activist in each village, untied funds to all sub-health centres and improvement of infrastructure and standards in rural hospitals.
3)Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission: This represents the first effort of its kind where Government of India is intervening in a major way to improving the quality of living in the cities. It focuses on improving urban infrastructure,governance and services to the urban poor. Comprehensive city development plans are prepared and funded under this Mission.
4)Bharat Nirman has been a major initiative conceived as a time-bound plan for rural infrastructure. It seeks to provide electricity to all remaining villages, drinking water supply to all uncovered and slipped-back habitations, connect all habitations with a population of 1000 (500 in hilly and tribal areas) with an all-weather road, create additional irrigation capacity of 1 crore hectares, build 60 lakh houses for the rural poor and cover every village with a telephone.
5) NREGA provides a legal guarantee for 100 days of work to rural households.The programme now covers all rural districts of the country. It is the first such effort in the world to provide legal guarantee for a Right to Work and the programme is being keenly watched by development observers all over the world.
6)Right to Information Act : This act was passed in 2005. This Act is being used actively by the citizens, leading to greater transparency and accountability in public life.
As the outcomes of the flagship programmes consolidate over the next few years, a new era of equalising and socially inclusive growth would become a reality.

Millennium Development Goals :-
Reforms initiated in the 1990’s to a large extent have made a positive impact on Economic development in the state. However it lags behind on several other socio-economic and human develop indicators. AP stands in the middle on the performance of a number of MDG goals in the country. Achieving all the MDG set targets in the stipulated time is a challenge that AP has to seriously start focusing upon, as the date of delivery draws close. Being on track on a number of indicators, AP is poised to achieve a large proportion of the MDGs. To keep track of AP’s status quo on a number of parameters, it is essential to have an idea of the exact targets set for the state. Taking in to account the base line data figures of the nineties AP MDG targets have been quantified by a number of scholars. Few common arrived targets, and the current conditions on a number of parameters is collated to create a more broader and accepted table that contains the recognized MDG targets set for the state, and APs current position on the different indicators of MDGs. The tabular form of this is prepared to assist targeted policy interventions.

Sectoral Analysis

close
Implementation and monitoring tools of varied sectors / programs generate periodic detailed data. However, most of this data has not been analysed to determine trends and gaps. Analysis – to determine the social, economic, procedural, geographic gaps in the performance of programs and sectors have been attempted to identify action points and policy interventions. This analysis takes in pointers from current status quo to design the process, content and extent of interventions to be made and undertaken.

Analysis of a few key sectors like education, health, drinking water, employment have been attempted to map out details of the programs in a comprehensible manner. Detailed Sector Wise data Analysis and reports are given in each segment.

Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA):–
Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) is a Centrally Sponsored Scheme in partnership with State Governments and has been initiated to universalize elementary education across the country. Its overall goals include universal access and retention bridging of gender and social category gaps in education and enhancement of learning levels of children. SSA was started as a programme with a clear time frame (to provide useful and relevant elementary education for all children in the 6 to 14 age group by 2010) for provision of universal elementary education, through involving Panchayati Raj Institutions, School Management Committees, Village and Urban Slum level Education Committees, Parents' Teachers' Associations, Mother Teacher Associations, Tribal Autonomous Councils and other grass root level structures in the management of elementary schools. SSA provides for a variety of interventions which includes opening of new schools and alternate schooling facilities, construction of schools and additional classrooms, toilets and drinking water, provisioning for teachers, periodic teacher training and academic resource support, textbooks and support for learning achievement.

Institutional Reforms, Sustainable Financing, Community Ownership, Institutional Capacity, Building Community Based Monitoring with Full Transparency, Habitation as a Unit of Planning, and Accountability to Community Priority to Education of Girls Focus on Special Groups, Thrust on Quality, Role of Teachers and District Elementary Education Plans are few of its key features. The programme has collected data on varied parameters that give an in-depth and micro level picture of primary schooling in AP. The data from the department has been collected and analysed to ascertain trends and key findings of the program. These findings emerge as action points on which action plan for target based interventions can be made to correct deficiencies and attain complete coverage.

Rural Water Supply
Data on rural water supply has been critically analyzed to pinpoint the mandals / districts where a renewed effort has to be made to ensure that we reach the MDG goals in drinking water supply as soon as possible. The percentage of habitations having total access to drinking water, the distance that each district has from achieving 100% coverage, districts with fluoride and salinity issues have been identified in this analysis.

Muslims in Andhra Pradesh
In course of the 12th Five Year Plan efforts and other plan appraisal activities, the condition and current status of Minorities and the funds and policies needed to benefit them came up as a significant issue of concern. Demographic details, development indicators, socio-economic conditions, and other details about specifically Muslims in AP were analyzed to determine the gaps that in turn indicated the thrust areas for policy intervention. The data on the condition of Muslims in terms of education and their participation in Self-Help groups was retrieved to enable the status quo. The study will be expanded to include a few more parameters to give us a very clear district level understanding of the concerns and gaps in development of Muslims in AP and the policy thrusts and plans needed to correct these.

Integrated Child Development Services
The ICDS Scheme is a centrally sponsored single largest integrated programme of Child Development that was started in Andhra Pradesh in 1975-76. In 2007 ICDS was revised and universalized to specifically address key objectives like reduction of malnutrition in 0-6 year Children, reduction of Children with low Birth Weight, reduction of Infant Mortality Rate, Maternal Mortality Rate and other measures for improving the over-all health and nutrition condition women and children. The ICDS programme provides Supplementary Nutrition to children between 6 months to 6 years, Pregnant and Lactating Mothers, Non-formal Pre-School Education to 3-6 years Children, Health check-ups Referral services and Immunization to Children and Women. However, Andhra Pradesh figures lower in ranking than Bihar and even Bangladesh in terms of IMR, MMR and Nutrition of women and Child. In fact IMR, MMR and Women and Child Health is one of the MDG goals that AP is far away from attaining by 2015. Concerned about the women and child health parameters, the Planning Department has initiated measures like – starting an integrated MIS on health parameters, conducting a base line survey, and a focused target based intervention policy along with the Health Department and ICDS Mission. The Projects/ mandals of concern with reference to IMR, MMR, and Nutrition have been identified and an intervention strategy initiated to address this.
