Independent Agency for Benefit of Social Sector Schemes

Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment, Shri D. Napoleon informed Rajay Sabha today in a written reply that the Government has approved setting up of an Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) as an attached office under the aegis of Planning Commission to carry out independent evaluation of various flagship programmes/schemes. The IEO will be an independent body, fully funded by the Government of India and will have full functional autonomy to discharge its functions. 

He further informed that the IEO will be an evaluation agency and not an implementing agency. The IEO is permitted to engage services of leading social science research/other knowledge institutions to evaluate the impact of flagship programmes, the Minister said.
