Human Resource, Budget Crunch Hit Technical Evaluation of Development Projects   

October 24: The National Vigilance Centre lacks budget and technical staff to carry out technical assessment of its development projects, the state-owned national news agency RSS reported.
The post of Chief of Technical Division of the National Vigilance Centre under the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers has remained vacant from mid-June 2019.    
Spokesperson of the National Vigilance Centre, Gyan Raj Subedi, told RSS that they are facing problem in carrying out test to assure the quality of development projects due to lack of human resources.

Although there is a quota for five technical under-secretaries at the Technical Division of the National Vigilance Centre, there are only two engineers available.    
The National Vigilance Centre has been conducting technical tests of projects of national pride and priority. Such activities have been hampered as technical staff hesitate to work for the National Vigilance Centre.      
Subedi further said that although the government in its annual policy and programmes promises to increase scope of technical test of development projects every year, it allocates minimal amount of budget for the purpose.    
According to RSS, only Rs 8.5 million has been allocated for technical tests of development projects in the current fiscal year. There is no situation to carry out technical tests of the development projects due to lack of budget and human resources, the National Vigilance Centre stated.
