Institutional Structure

The institutional structure of Samajik Suvidha Sangam has been so envisaged, as to free Mission Convergence Programme from rigid system that brought in operational hurdles and undue delays in implementation. The centre of governance has been shifted to the district level in the spirit of the very foundation of Samajik Suvidha Sangam that of a decentralized governance tool with a definitive tilt away from the legacy top down approach. It is a reaching out of the Government to its vulnerable citizens for their inclusion in the governance process. It is aimed at inverting the earlier process wherein people had to run from pillar to post to prove their claims to Government’s welfare schemes to which they were entitled.
However, to ensure effective delivery of Mission mandate, the State has instituted a hierarchical governing structure that plays the role of mentor and guide to the Mission. It also effectively brings in accountability into the programme design at each stage of implementation.
Policy Review Committee: under the Chairmanship of the Hon’able Chief Minister Smt. Sheila Dikshit herself, this is the highest governing body of the Samamjik Suvidha Sangam responsible for taking all policy related decisions to facilitate effective and better implementation of the Mission Convergence Programme. The Chief Minister takes a special interest in this programme as welfare of the poor is an agenda especially close to her heart and Mission Convergence is a programme mandated to work for welfare, uplift and social inclusion of Delhi’s vulnerable.
State Convergence Forum: The State Convergence Forum is the apex body constituted at the state level under the Chairmanship of the Chief Secretary. Notably, it is the vision of Chief Secretary Shri Rakesh Mehta that has shaped the Mission Convergence Programme. The State Convergence Forum comprises Principal Secretaries /Secretaries of all converging departments who provide mentoring and guidance to the programme and also act as the checks and balances to ensure the programme stays on the mandated course.
District Entitlement Committee: The District Entitlement Committee under the chairmanship of the Area MLA, on the one hand mentors and guides the District Convergence Forum and on the other acts as the direct interface between the Government and community. It ensures that the programme is being implemented in the right manners and that voices of the unheard communities are being given due importance. It exercises a kind of community level ‘due diligence’ into the working of the programme.
The District Convergence Forum has been set up as an empowered committee at the district level and is headed by the Deputy Commissioners. This forum includes members from the District Council as well as Gender Resource Centre-Suvidha Kendras  and the District Resource Centres. The District machinery has been strengthened to implement Mission’s development programmes by bringing in administrative convergence and acts as an effective monitoring tool for delivery of social sector schemes. Nodal Officers are nominated for coordinating the operations and taking decisions at the district level.
