Shillong, July 13: Deputy Chief Minister in-charge District Council Affairs (DCA) Prestone Tynsong has informed that experts from the Ministry of Panchayati Raj and state’s community and rural development department will help the three autonomous district councils – KHADC, JHADC and GHADC to install separate portals as mandated by the government of India.

After chairing a meeting with the CEMs of the three ADCs today, Tynsong said, “We have taken a decision and most likely by next week, these experts from ministry and also from department rural development will go to all three ADCs and help them how to install the portal which are mandated by the government of India.”

He said that the matter was relating to the recommendations made by the 15th Finance Commission for implementation of the various schemes by the three district councils.

According to him, as per the guidelines from the ministry, without the portal funds cannot be released to the three ADCs. The ADCs have to update every village in the portal.

However, the decision to assist the ADCs was taken after they were facing a very tough time as they could not open the portal. So now, the experts will spend one day in each of the three ADCs to assist them in the creation of the separate portal, Tynsong added.
