The Union government of India decided to bring 20 more districts in the Naxal-hit states for declaring more districts as extreme Left Wing Extremism(LWE) affected districts. If these districts included in the list of LWE-hit distrcts, these areas will receive special Central funds for infrastructure and security- related expenses under the Security Related Expenditure scheme.  Under this scheme, districts of Chhattisgarh, Bihar, Jharkahnd and Orissa will be benefitted. A proposal regarding this was sent by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs to the Planning Commission. 


At present, 60 districts receive 25 crore rupees each for the scheme earmarked by a committee chaired by district collector. It has been a long-time demand of the Naxal-affected states that more districts be declared LWE.
