The implementation of the Annual Development Programme (ADP) has progressed to 18.61 percent in the first five months of the current fiscal (2021-22).

The total ADP spending was 17.93 percent of the total allocation in the same period of the previous fiscal, according to the data from Implementation Monitoring and Evaluation Division (IMED).

According to IMED sources, the total expenditure incurred during the July-November period last year was Tk 38,472 crore. 

As a result, ADP implementation has increased by Tk 5,589 crore in the same period of this year as compared to last year. 

Besides, ADP implementation rate was 19.24 percent in the 2019-20 fiscal year, 20.15 percent in 2018-19 fiscal year and 20.11 percent in 2016-17 fiscal year. 

Due to the coronavirus crisis, ADP implementation slowed down in FY 2020-21. The implementation of the ADP is gaining momentum again as the corona crisis gradually subsides.

In November alone, the ADP implementation progress has increased by 5.55 percent to Tk 13,142 crore. In the same period of the previous fiscal, it increased by 5.13 percent to Tk 11,000 crore.

However, the volume of expenditure from this segment still remained healthy as it grew by 22.32 percent or Tk 26.08 billion over the Tk 116.82 billion foreign project money expenditure one year earlier.

Meanwhile, self-financed ADP implementation of public corporations also rose momentum after five months.

It increased to 18.13 percent with Tk 20.79 billion in total expenditure, which was 11.13 percent or Tk 10.53 billion during the same period a year ago.

Fifteen large ministries or divisions that received 83.83 percent of ADP money registered 18.94 percent average ADP implementation performance.

Among them, the industries ministry managed to achieve the highest 45.40 percent ADP performance in five months followed by the housing and public works ministry’s 26.42 percent and the water resource ministry’s 23.92 percent.

Top allocated local government division could register 22.78 percent ADP performance, Road Transport and Highways Division 22.26 percent and Ministry of Railways 22.25 percent.

Besides, the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education achieved 19.47 percent, Ministry of Civil Aviation and Tourism 18.18 percent, Ministry of Science and Technology 18.11 percent, Prime Minister’s Office 15.81 percent, Power Division 15.08 percent and Bridges Division 15.30 percent of ADP allocation during the period.

Out of the large agencies, Health Services Division came out as the worst performer so far with 6.43 percent of ADP performance, followed by Shipping Ministry’s 8.04 percent.

The government allocated a total of Tk 2367.93 billion as ADP outlay for the current fiscal year of 2021-22.

Of the total amount, the government will provide Tk 1373 billion while Tk 880.24 billion will come from foreign sources.
