amount is provided for in the 12th Plan.
Project organization structure viz. Project Implementation Committee (PlC), at
apex level, Central Project Management Units (CPMU5) at the Centre and
State Project Management Units (SPMUs) and District Project Management
Units (DPMUs) at the State and District levels respectively would be set up.
