Challenge Method for “selection of location” for future IITs IIMs AIIMS ports refineries LNG terminals and food processing units as well as film festivals national games and Pravasi Bhartiya Divas among others Depending on the issue states would have to compete over ease of providing land extent of fiscal concessions connectivity provision of utilities speedy statutory clearances and quantum of employment to be generated Different weightage would be assigned to each parameter to arrive at a cumulative score The state with the highest score would be the winner for a particular project institution or event “The basic intent of the Challenge Method is to provide a transparent objective and merit-based decision-making process that may be adopted for site selection across various sectors and to encourage competition among states to offer the best-suited sites and commit resources in terms of infrastructure support financial incentives etc” says the letter Each department has been asked to submit a list of projects institutions or events under them with a matrix of indicative parameters and possible weight assigned to each parameter to the Cabinet Secretariat by this month The collated list would then be put up in the public domain for any state to start the bidding A state’s original offer would be made public so as to invite competing counter proposals that would have to better the initial offer Under the Swiss Challenge Method if a third party’s bid is more efficient the first bidder is asked to resubmit a fresh bid If the first bidder comes up with a better proposal it gets the project and if it fails the one with the more efficient bid wins the project The Challenge route has been widely used in recent years with the Central government approving redevelopment of 400 railway stations via this method It has also been used by states to award roads and housing contracts For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Saritha Rai | Updated: July 28 2014 5:00 am Sources in the UIDAI recount that Modi as chief minister of Gujarat was quite taken by the programme Over 22 million residents in that state have been allocated the 12-digit Aadhaar number Related News Nilekani’s efforts to convince the NDA of Aadhaar’s benefits appear to have paid off A half-hour meeting that Aadhaar architect Nandan Nilekani had with Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier this month followed by a conferring couple of days later with Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has reportedly sorted the go-no go situation for the ambitious UIDAI project The two meetings and a third that Modi held with his key ministers helped resurrect the unique identity programme of the previous UPA government Subsequent to these meetings officials have reportedly been instructed to speed up Aadhaar enrolment and work on transferring fuel and pension benefits through the programme Further signalling its backing the new government also announced an increase in its budgetary allocation Exactly five years ago Infosys founder Nilekani (now 59) resigned as co-chairman of the firm and set out on a technological mission to build a near fail-safe database of biometric identities for a billion plus Indians The “transformational project” was intended to help millions with no proof of existence by catapulting them onto a system on the cloud through a unique ID number where their identities could be validated anytime from anywhere within seconds A lack of verifiable identity has been the bugbear that denies needy Indians access to welfare money even as thousands of crores are siphoned off through fake beneficiary identities and bogus claims The programme has already provided the unique 12-digit numbers to 650 million Indians in 18 states half the country’s population It has envisaged Aadhaar-bank account linkages and hopes to empower citizens by facilitating the sending and receipt of payments even through their mobile phones So far over Rs 4500 crore has been spent on developing the Aadhaar system In a pre-election interview Nilekani had said that no government could afford to scrap the programme It was too effective a foundation for fundamental reforms of the public delivery system in India he said Despite the size and costs of the programme the fear was that Aadhaar would get killed in the post-election political transition Nilekani had resigned his post as UIDAI chairman rendering it headless when the Congress announced that he would be its candidate for the prestigious Bangalore South parliamentary seat in April’s Lok Sabha elections Aadhaar figured prominently in that election campaign as Nilekani’s prime opponent the BJP’s Ananth Kumar attacked the programme called it a national threat and said the NDA government would scrap it when it came to power Kumar defeated Nilekani by a margin of 228 lakh votes and has gone on to become the chemicals and fertilisers minister in the new government And so the belief was that the Modi government would abandon the UID and favour the Union home ministry’s National Population Registry (NPR) Several ministers reportedly vociferously argued for the NPR over the UID It did not quite happen that way Sources in the UIDAI recount that Modi as chief minister of Gujarat was quite taken by the programme Over 22 million residents in that state have been identified by their biometrics enrolled in the database and allocated the 12-digit Aadhaar number The crux of the meeting between Nilekani and Modi was three-fold people in the know told this columnist The Aadhaar programme would help Modi keep his promise to provide an efficient government by helping usher in extensive welfare reforms The argument was that the programme could help competently disburse some Rs 300000 crore of welfare money through various government schemes More importantly the accuracy of the programme would help bring in the direct benefits transfer scheme to transmit cash to biometrically-identified beneficiaries If this could help the Modi government plug welfare money leakages to the tune of 15-20 per cent some Rs 50000 crore could be shaved off the fiscal deficit To remove the legal hurdles arising out of litigation in the Supreme Court (which had ruled that Aadhaar could not be mandatory to provide government services to citizens) it was suggested that the bill be passed in Parliament In the five years since its launch Aadhaar has gone through a host of challenges There have been on-the-ground problems with enrolment and the delivery of Aadhaar cards There have been turf wars between ministers in the previous UPA regime over the programme There have been several legal impediments in the form of court cases As long as he chaired the UIDAI Nilekani adroitly managed to overcome most of these travails and push his pet project through With his pitch to Modi and Jaitley he may have yet again saved Aadhaar and even breathed
