The work should start after the monsoon season, so that public money is not wasted, he said
For the second and third phases of Mana Badi, works should be taken up on time and the fund raising programme should begin. As the first phase of work is being undertaken up parents committees there would not be any delay in the work, the Chief Minister said.

When the officials said that at some places the works are being delayed, the Chief Minister asked them to take over the works from the donors and hand them over to district collectors.
Engineers looking after Village Secretariats should also take care of the Mana Badi schools in such cases, and they should visit the schools at least once a week and record their report in the Management Book (MB). To this effect SOPs should be prepared, he said.
