The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) on 26 November 2010 approved the commencement of an Integrated Action Plan (IAP) in 60 selected districts. The scheme was introduced in pursuance of the Finance Minister's announcement in his budget speech of 2010-11 and the Prime Minister's address to the National Development Council on 24 July 2010. The scheme aims at giving an impetus to development schemes in tribal and backward regions, mostly affected by Naxal violence. Aimed at quick resolution of problems concerning healthcare, drinking water, education and roads, the scheme will be an additional central assistance scheme on a 100 per cent grant basis. A committee including Superintendent of Police and the District Forest Officer and headed by the District Collector will decide the schemes to be implemented.
