As per policy all schemes (PLAN) with more than Rs. 1 crore outlay were required to be evaluated at least once in 5 years by all the government departments, corporations, boards, local bodies and other publicly funded entities and 1% of the total outlay of a project/scheme, with an upper limit of Rs. 5 lakhs, is to be kept for evaluation purpose. It is mandatory for a scheme/project to continue beyond plan period to be justified by evaluation.
