In a meeting with senior officials yesterday, the Governor reviewed the guiding principle and course of action for the 13th Finance Commission grants for forest related activities among others, a Raj Bhawan release said today.

He said that the State Infrastructure Development Fund (SIDF) projects would be reviewed and finalized by a committee under the chairmanship of Advisor GS Patnaik.

"Funds would be distributed rationally as per population, backwardness and special needs of the area", Rajkhowa said.

The Governor expressed surprise that the previous plan for SIDP fund distribution as per planning department had excluded Anjaw, Namsai, Changlang, Longding and Kra Daadi districts.
