ISSUES FOR DISCUSSION (For New Proposals) State Governments are forwarding the Proposals of the NGOs for setting up of new swadhar homes without checking their credibility, experience, antecedents and requisite documents etc. Proposals for setting up of new swadhar homes are being forwarded without the need based assessment of the district and availability of the targeted beneficiaries etc. Further, States are forwarding new proposals for the districts where one or more swadhar homes/short stay homes are already functioning.
For Ongoing Swadhar Homes Recommendations are not received on time. Inspection Reports are not filled in properly Requisite documents are not received from the state governments/implementing agencies
