The Member of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS) is an initiative in India, launched in 1993, aimed at decentralized development through the creation of durable community assets based on locally felt needs. Recently, a new MPLADS e-SAKSHI Mobile Application was launched to enhance the scheme’s fund flow procedure, ensuring transparency, accessibility, and efficient management of projects by MPs. The scheme, overseen by the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation, allows MPs to recommend developmental works in their constituencies or states. It has faced challenges like insufficient participation, political influence, and monitoring issues, prompting calls for adherence to Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) recommendations for improved implementation.
