The Chief Minister asked the officials that they should ensure that after issuing the Government Orders, the schemes have reached the end beneficiaries and ensure that funds have been transferred to them

 Stalin said that the officials should communicate with the Union government and chalk out plans for the next financial year as well as strive for issuing orders to the remaining 20 percent of the announcements made.
