Made In India

SWADESHI is that spirit in us which restricts us to the use and service of our immediate surroundings to the exclusion of the more remote. Thus, as for religion, in order to satisfy the requirements of the definition, I must restrict myself to my ancestral religion.

” Grant in Aid on Women Labour “

The Ministry of is running a Grant-in-aid Scheme for the welfare of women labour. This Scheme, which has been continuing since Sixth Five Year Plan (1981-82), is administered through voluntary organizations by giving grant-in-aid to them for the following purposes:

Organizing working women and educating them about their rights/duties, Legal aid to working women
Seminars, workshops, etc. aiming at raising the general consciousness of the society about the problems of women labour

Under this Scheme, Voluntary Organizations/NGOs are being provided funds by way of grants-in-aid to take up action-oriented projects for the benefit of women labour. Projects relating to awareness generation campaigns for women labour are funded under this Scheme. The focus of the Scheme is awareness generation among women labour, in the area of wages, like minimum wages, equal remuneration, etc. to disseminate information on various schemes of Central/State Government Agencies available for the benefit of women labour.

This Scheme was introduced with the intention of furthering Government’s policy of helping women workers become aware of the rights and opportunities available to them under various Schemes of the Government. Proposals of VOs/NGOs for providing grant-in-aid for undertaking awareness generation campaigns on women labour will be considered under this Scheme subject to their suitability.

As per the provisions of the Scheme, grants-in-aid is being provided as 75% of the total cost of the project. However, the projects relating to studies entrusted to various institutes are funded in full, i.e., 100%.

Year-wise details of funds allocation/released during last five years is as below:

Year Fund Expenditure No. of NGOs No. of women

It has been decided in the meeting of GIA Committee for Women Labour held on 28.07.2011 (Minutes of the meeting may be seen at Annexure II) that guidelines on the scheme needs to revised.  A comparative statement showing the existing and proposed modification in guidelines is at Annexure IV.  The main areas where modification suggested are:

  • Enhancing the assistance from 75% to 90% for NER
  • Eligibility criteria of VOs/NGOs/SHGs of Centre/State Govt.
  • Providing of list of topics from which minimum number topics to be cover
  • Simplification of the procedure for submission of proposals etc.

To evaluate the proposed recommendations on GIA Scheme on Women & Child Labour, a 3 members committee compromising Pr. Secretary of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Haryana has been set up. A three member Committee in a meeting held on 24.10.2011 has agreed to the above recommendations with certain modifications.  The Committee has accepted the above recommendation with following modifications:

  • Provision for conducting the women labour camps also with scaled down strength of 50 should also be provided. Accordingly the funds requirement for one day/two day programmes should be worked out.
  • Need for conducting regional workshop on the various provisions of the Child and Women Labour scheme may be worked out.

Ministry of Social Justice & Enpowerment

The Background

  1. The Ministry is charged with the promotion of welfare, ensuring social justice for and empowerment of disadvantaged and marginalized sections of society.It is the responsibility of the Ministry to reach the target group which includes the Scheduled Castes, Minorities, Backward Classes, Disabled, Aged Persons, Street children and victims of Drug Abuse.The objective is to bring them into the mainstream of development by assisting them to overcome their social, physical and educational handicaps.In this manner, their progress through capacity building can be ensured.This would equip them to employ their capabilities to their fullest potential reducing their reliance / dependence on others and achieving independence to the maximum extent possible – the ultimate goal of such assistance extended by the Government.
  2. The financial resources available with the Central and State Governments are limited and therefore it is necessary to ensure that the resources of the State are optimally utilized to bring maximum benefit to maximum number. It has been recognized that along side the efforts of the state, the services of the voluntary organization in assisting the target groups are indispensable.They supplement the efforts of the state in ensuring that the benefits reach the maximum number.In certain cases, it is the voluntary organizations that are in a better position to implement the schemes of the Govt. in a more efficient manner than Govt. itself.This is primarily attributable to the highly committed and dedicated human resources that are available with the voluntary organizations.Further, they often have better expertise and are more knowledgeable about the local conditions that make them a better delivery system than what the Govt. can put together. Therefore increasing participation of the voluntary organizations in nation and society building is not only desirable but also crucial.
  3. The presence of Voluntary organizations is not uniform throughout the nation. Similarly, there are certain spheres of activities that attract more voluntary organizations just as their concentration in some regions. This twin situation often results in disparate development of regions as well as of sectors. It is the intention of the Ministry to encourage the horizontal spread of development alongside sectoral growth in spheres that have received comparatively less attention or may need more attention.
  4. It is also the experience of the Ministry that some voluntary organizations are better equipped to avail of the financial assistance from the Ministry than others. Ideally, the scarce resource should be available to voluntary organizations according to the regions and sectors that require intervention according to the problems the society may be confronted with and the priorities identified by the Government.
  5. Some Voluntary organizations also thrive exclusively on aid from Govt. This is a situation that needs to be reversed. Voluntary organizations should be able to build on the support from the Govt. and establish other support systems that would gradually reduce their dependence on Govt. Such a policy would enable the growth of more voluntary organizations that can work in more sectors. The objective of the Govt. is not the support of existing voluntary organizations alone, but to encourage growth of new ones as well.
  6. It should be the intention of the voluntary organizations to obtain support of other sources for their operation. This could be achieved after they are able to establish themselves with the support of the Govt. and prove their usefulness to the society at large. With the credibility that they may be able to earn, they would be able to enlist the support of corporate houses and even the community. Contributions both in kind and finances would become easily available once credentials are firmly recognized. Additional resources could be mobilized in this manner.
  7. Voluntary organizations should also accord increasing priority to the involvement of the community in the social activity that the organization may be undertaking. Community involvement in projects has several apparent and consequential or spin-off benefits. It helps in improving the efficacy of the programme, effecting attitudinal changes towards the beneficiaries, identification of those acutely in need of the assistance and change in the psyche (feeling of acceptance or recognition by society can lead to increased motivation) of those affected and the like.
  8. Voluntary organizations be encouraged through a system of matching grants to raise resources from the public, business houses, national and international organizations.

Advance actions to be taken by the Ministry

  1. The Ministry could in the beginning of every two years take out advertisements in all the states through newspapers inviting voluntary organizations to register with the Ministry. This would enable the Ministry to have a database about the voluntary organizations spread through out the nation. This is important because it would provide a wealth of information about the various organizations such as their organizational strength, human resources capacity, expertise, reach/presence etc. At times of need the Ministry could intervene socially in regions and areas that may require special attention by assisting such organizations according to the exigencies of time.
  2. Evolve annual action plans according to the priorities that the Govt. of the day may have to intervene in regions and sectors to beget the desired changes.
  3. Assistance to agencies could be based on such priorities rather than waiting for voluntary agencies to approach the Govt. for assistance. In this manner there can be a concerted attack on social evils/problems or areas to engender change with the Govt. sponsoring such metamorphosis. This would be a potent instrument in Govt. hands. Used wisely it could be an instrument of positive change.
  4. According to the data collected, organizations may be grouped according to their expertise and geographical regions of operation and the manpower at their command.
  5. The exercise for the identification should be undertaken in the month of December so that the plan could be launched as soon as the financial year begins.
  6. An amount of around 10% of the funds earmarked by the Ministry for assistance to voluntary organizations will be reserved for utilization in areas where the Ministry sees a need for special intervention on account of social problems that may have arisen on account of natural and other calamities or other unforeseen development.

Priorities to be accorded by the Goverment

  1. A transparent system be developed in the Ministry for processing release of grants to Voluntary Organizations.
  2. As far as possible, new projects shall be approved in respect of those voluntary organizations which locate these in rural areas which are not benefitting from voluntary action at present. However, this would not apply in the case of schemes which are specifically aimed at tackling problems relating to urban areas.
  3. Since the funds available for assisting the efforts of the voluntary sector in the field of social welfare are limited, assistance from the Govt. shall be limited to duration of 10 years in case of new project. Those on-going projects that have been receiving assistance for the last 5 years and above will be given a phase out period of 5 years and in respect of those assisted for a lesser period the phase out period shall be 10 years. Where the phase out period is 5 years grants shall be reduced by an amount of 20% every year. In case of a phase out period of 10 years the reduction in grant shall be 10% every year.
  4. Voluntary organizations shall recover some proportion of the expenses incurred on the beneficiaries through user charges from families of beneficiaries or beneficiaries themselves for the services rendered. The user charges may be fixed by the NGO keeping in view the income strata of the population benefiting by voluntary action. The scale of charges shall be displayed prominently through a board put up in public view. The user charges recovered shall be fully accounted for in the annual audited accounts of the NGO.
  5. Monitoring of utilization of funds released by the Ministry be ensured through periodical reports from the assisted organization and field inspections by representatives of independent organizations / State Government / Others.
  6. Voluntary organizations may be required to display boards which should be erected at each service centre clearly indicating that the organization is running under the aegis of the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment.
  7. Public should be able to register their suggestions for the improvement of the functioning of the organizations and a suggestion box may be provided at all such service centres. Inspection agencies and the Ministry officials may have access to them. Making suitable changes according to the suggestions received may help in making the organizations more responsive to local problems/needs.
  8. Releases should be time bound and progress determined. The voluntary organization should be able to in advance project their requirements and the achievements they would be able to register. Releases thereafter should not be time-consuming and should be made Once there is evidence of progress, advances should be released.
  9. Professionalism in voluntary organizations and involvement of qualified persons should be promoted.
  10. The releases of funds made by the Ministry to voluntary organizations should be adequately publicised so that the general public is aware of the activities of the Voluntary Organizations in the area and periodic feedback is available to the Ministry through public representatives, local bodiesand the press on the performance of these organizations.
  11. At least one branch of a Voluntary Organization should be inspected once a year. Schedule for inspection may be prepared by March itself and a format should be prepared to make the assessment of the performance.
  12. Each Voluntary Organization shall submit an Annual Report to the Ministry. They will include the per capita expenditure incurred on the beneficiaries. This would be one of the key instruments to measure the efficiency of the organizations and would provide a comparison between organizations and regions.

Prioritization Guidelines for the funding Project run by the Voluntary Organization

  1. New projects will be favoured in rural areas, urban areas in cases of extreme need and in States where voluntary action has so far not been significant.
  2. In order to be eligible for assistance, a Voluntary Organization should have been registered for a period of at least two years and should have been actively working in its sector for a period of two years. Such projects will not be taken up for assistance where the activities are proposed to commence after the project is sanctioned and funds released by the Ministry. Besides, the NGO would be required to maintain its level of contribution at least at the level of expenses that were being incurred by it before assistance from the Ministry commenced. An undertaking in this regard would be required from the Voluntary Organization at the time of submission of the initial application for grant.
  3. Such projects will be favoured for sanction where the Voluntary Organization is locally based and its operations reflect involvement with the community.
  4. Projects proposed for implementation by established Voluntary Organization in green field areas by setting up their local chapters, will be favoured.
  5. A Project proposal complete in all respects (as per guidelines issued by the Ministry) will be funded initially for a period of one year at a time for five years.
  6. No grants will be released for acquisition of immoveable assets or the construction of buildings during the initial five year period of assistance by the Ministry to any NGO.

Key map of project land enclosed with application shows irrigation water source (if needed), existing structure, proposed structure, plantation area. Key map may not be as per scale but it may be sketch for the purpose of getting idea of project land. Concerned AD and LOI scrutiny an authority should try to ascertain that beneficiary does not miss technically necessary infra components.
vi. Crop, its variety, plant density, plant matrix its proposed area and source of planting material, is clearly shown. This detail should be looked into and suitable technical advice may be given to applicant. For this the indicative key­map of the project land should be referred to.
vii. It should be ensured that the funding institution has valid existence; in case of doubt about any bank its Banking License issued by Reserve Bank of India may be referred to. In case funding is proposed by Credit Society then the funding Institution will be not only the concerned credit society but the Bank proper too which provides credit to the Society. In such cases, the proposal should be routed through the funding bank to NHB for consideration of subsidy and subsidy reserve fund a/c in the name of beneficiary shall be maintained at funding bank. Clarification, if needed may be sought from the NABARD/SLBC and District Registrar of Cooperative Societies, in case of doubt.
viii. From the project report the means of finance should be checked to ensure that the project is not proposed to be funded by subsidy from two or more central schemes to avoid doubling of subsidy for the same project from two or more organizations. Similarly, the term loan component is not less than minimum prescribed limit.
ix. The project details given in application form and in the project report conform to each other.
x. In case of applicant being a company the same has enough authorized capital and reserves & surplus to provide required amount of equity. Unsecured loan should not be treated as equity.
xi. Implementation schedule of the project should be properly examined to avoid LOI for old plantation, activities and components.
xii. If the proposed primary processing unit produces items covered under definition of “Fruit Product” as defined under FPO 1955, then no objection certificate from MFPI be taken. NOC should be to the effect that same project component has neither been assisted by it nor is under consideration for assistance by MFPI and it has no objection to NHB granting assistance under its scheme.

CHAPTER­II

Guidelines for Inspection / Joint Inspection ProjectsonCompletion

Objective­ Inspection / Joint Inspection of the project is carried out with the prime objective of ensuring that the project has been completed as per original project report at approved project site and all essential components have been completed with satisfactory quality of execution and acceptable standard of workmanship. It is also aimed at verifying the vouchers and other records maintained by the beneficiary in order to make assessment about the component­wise actual expenditure incurred by the beneficiary and making assessment about cost of the project. It not only gives pen­picture of the project but also provides photographs / video films as per standing instructions of NHB by way of proof of existence of assets created.

Intimation of completion of project and carrying out Inspection / Joint Inspection­ On completion of credit linked project for which LOI has been issued by the Board, promoter will inform the concerned financing institution (FI)

/ Bank about the completion of the project. As soon as possible after receipt of the information/documents regarding completion of the project for which Banker himself has been authorized by NHB to carry out Inspection of the Project along with the beneficiary, the banker will make the spot inspection of the project and submit the Inspection Report duly signed on each page by the Bank Officer in the NHB prescribed format. In cases requiring Joint Inspection the concerned FI

/ Bank will fix the date for Joint Inspection of the project in consultation with concerned State I/c of NHB. Such cases will be jointly inspected by representative of NHB and representative of financing institution (FI) / Bank in presence of beneficiary. Representative of State Directorate of Horticulture may also be associated as per standing orders of NHB.

Salient features of Inspection Report ­ Bank Inspection Report / Joint Inspection Report will be submitted in the form given at Format­III by the concerned FI / Bank to NHB. Inspection report is in writing giving necessary description of various components of the project and project land, source of funding, whether all the components of the project are new etc; it is supported by photograph or video film as per standing instructions of NHB.

Some points which must be recorded in Inspection Report by Inspecting team:­

  1. In case of the orchard/plantation crop ­ date of plantation, plant density, name of the varieties grown and source and cost of purchase of quality planting material is to be clearly mentioned in the report.

  1. In case of tissue culture/mushroom production/aromatic plants and processing unit –installed capacity for production of the tissue culture plants (nos.) / annum, mushroom production/aromatic oil (MT / annum) mentioned clearly and separately.

  1. In case of vermin­compost unit under the project status of kuchha / puckka foundation / superstructure along with the dimensions.

  2. In case of mix fruit crops – area and plant density of each crop to be mentioned crop­wise separately.

  3. In case of infrastructure like Labour Quarter, Store Room, Water Storage tank, etc. – complete dimension/area having length and width, ceiling height and type of roof, material used for wall (Brick with cement mortar or mud mortar, RCC etc) to be mentioned clearly.

  4. In case of Tractor – The Inspecting Officer must ensure that a photograph of the tractor along with beneficiary and Bank Officer and attested copy of tractor registration certificate (RC) are to be sent. The registration number of the tractor must tally as per the photographs/RC as mentioned in the inspection report of the Bank Officer / JIT.

Making Assessment of cost of components of project and project as a whole on completion of project­

Inspecting Officer / Joint Inspection Team is also responsible for making assessment of the cost of various components of the project and the project as a whole. It is generally made by verifying documentary proof such as vouchers / money receipts relating to procurements / services received etc. At times, when veracity of vouchers / money receipt is not certain, a fair assessment of cost may be made taking into account the local rates etc. Valuation made by Chartered accountant may also be taken into account. Generally, the FIs / Banks release subsequent and final installments of loan after ascertaining value of work executed through CA certificate etc. Such documents may also form the basis of assessing cost of components of the project and project as a whole.

  • Note­ It is advisable to inform the beneficiary about the compliances to be made by him for forwarding subsidy claim for his project; such as, requirement of fresh affidavit in prescribed Performa etc.

CHAPTER­III

Guidelines for Making SubsidyClaims

Procedure for submission of documents/papers for final subsidy claim to the Board:­ The concerned FI / Bank who has provided credit for the project has to submit subsidy claims to respective office of NHB directly according to the delegation of powers for sanctioning subsidy for the project. In all cases, the subsidy claims must be submitted in the following manner by speed post / registered post / or by messenger of the Bank who must have Identity Proof of being messenger or must carry authorization certificate from the concerned bank branch. This will help eliminate possibility recurrence of cases of submission of fake subsidy claims as had happened in some States. NHB is proposing to make provisions enabling Financing Institution to make online entry about loan sanction, release of installments of loan, progress of project implementation and making subsidy claims which may facilitate reporting of progress of project and later on, processing by competent authority in NHB of subsidy claims pending receipt of signed and attested copies of documents.

Eligible Project Cost (EPC)­ It is observed that the farmers/beneficiaries and bankers are sometimes under impression that the subsidy @ 20% of the project cost as appraised or as assessed during Inspection / Joint Inspection of completed project will be sanctioned. This is not true. Therefore, it is being clarified that 20% subsidy will be sanctioned and released against the eligible project cost (EPC). EPC is calculated taking in to account per unit area project cost, and component­wise cost norm. In addition, it is to be noted that the component wise eligible cost shall be least of cost indicated in project report, cost appraised by the bank / FI and cost assessed during Inspection / Joint Inspection of the project. The components not indicated in project report, appraisal report shall, therefore, be not eligible for inclusion for the purpose of calculation of EPC. Similarly, change in crop or project site without prior approval of NHB shall make the component or project, as the case may be, ineligible for getting subsidy. Even the change in FI / Banker should be done with prior approval of NHB. It should also be ensured that condition of prescribed minimum percentage of term loan is fulfilled otherwise, subsidy claims will be rejected. Crop­wise and component­wise cost norms are enclosed at Appendix­II.

Documents to be submitted with subsidy claims­ Keeping in view of the above, the subsidy claims must be submitted in the form prescribed at Format­

VII along with following documents including the Bank Inspection Report :­

    1. Completion certificate of the project as issued by the Bank.

    2. Financial appraisal carried out by the Bank before sanction of term loan showing means of finance along with any other details showing investment components and their costs. In case, pre­sanction inspection of project site is carried out by the FI / Bank, then a

certified copy of each of such documents should also be submitted along with subsidy claim.

    1. Term loan sanction letter issued by the Bank to the beneficiary with detailed terms & conditions clearly mentioning the purpose of term loan, period of repayment along with the activities e.g. plantation of fruits crops with drip/sprinkler system, establishment of hi­tech green house for commercial cut flower/horticulture produce, tissue culture unit, primary processing of horticulture produce, establishment of quality planting material nursery, etc. for which loan sanctioned.

    2. Date wise term­loan disbursement detail for the project.

    3. Extract of term­loan account of promoter related to the project.

(f) Notarized Affidavit by the farmer on Rs 20/­ stamp paper as per NHB prescribed format. (Format­IV)

  1. Copy of Record of Rights of project land as appended in loan document by the beneficiary along with Search Report, if any, got done by the FI / Bank. This will enable NHB tally the same with the copy of record of right submitted by the beneficiary to NHB along with application for LoI.

  2. Photographs taken at the time of inspection of the project duly signed by the Bank Officer and the promoter. It should be ensured that the Inspecting Officer (Bank Officer) along with Promoter and NHB officer (in case of JIT) should also be seen in the photographs.

  3. All major components of the project i.e. Drip irrigation system, PHM infrastructure, store room, watchman / servants waiting room, water harvesting pond, tube­well, tractor and planted crop in the field along with sign board of project etc. must be covered in the photographs.

  4. Duly certified expenditure statement (prepared on the basis of vouchers/bills) by Bank or CA certificate as per NHB format (Format­V) by way of proof of assessed cost of the project during Inspection / Joint Inspection

  5. If release of subsidy by RTGS is preferred by the Bank then application for the same with details of corresponding subsidy reserve fund account (Format­VI).

Procedure for adjustment of borrower’s account:­

The subsidy released by NHB to Bank/FI in favour of the project shall be kept in the separate account termed as Subsidy Reserve Fund. The adjustment of subsidy to term loan account shall be made only as back­ended subsidy. Accordingly, the full project cost including the subsidy amount but excluding the margin money contribution from the beneficiary would be disbursed as loan by the banks. The repayment schedule will be drawn on the loan amount in such a way that the subsidy amount is adjusted after the bank loan portion (excluding subsidy) is liquidated. The subsidy amount in the borrower’s Term Loan account should be adjusted only as a part of the recovery of last installment which should not be prior to 36 months period from the date of release of Term Loan.

Therefore, term loan account of borrower should not be charged interest from the date subsidy amount is received by the Bank.

Submission of the Utilization Certificate by the Bank/FI:­

After completion of the project and closure of borrower’s term loan account and on adjustment subsidy amount as part of the last installment which should not be prior to 36 months period from the date of release of Term Loan, the Bank/FI shall submit to NHB Utilization Certificate of the subsidy amount in Performa prescribed (Format­VIII) .

Chapter­IV

Operational Guidelines for Switching Over to system of

applying subsidy ceiling on per project basis from per

beneficiary basis

Board of Directors in its last meeting held on 03.12.2009 approved the subsidy of production related projects on per project basis on the pattern of subsidy admissible under NHB scheme for all other credit linked components viz PHM and Cold Storage and storage of Horticulture Produce. However, MC desired that NHB should frame guidelines to prevent willful splitting of projects with the sole intention of availing higher subsidy. Accordingly following guidelines are proposed for consideration and approval of subsidy:

  1. Admissible limit of subsidy per project shall not exceed 20% of the project cost maximum up to Rs.25.00 lakh (Rs.30.00 lakh per project in the case of North East and Hilly areas). Restrictions of number of projects and time limit shall not apply for subsidy up to Rs.25.00 lakh (Rs.30.00 lakh per project in the case of North East and Hilly areas) per beneficiary).

  2. The beneficiary could also establish new project (s) and avail further subsidy without any restriction of place subject to the following conditions:­

    1. The project should not be established on the same piece of land on which subsidy had already been availed. However, if the extent of area of a piece of land is larger than the area covered earlier for subsidy, the subsidy shall be admissible only for un­covered area. In other words, subsidy shall not be admissible for re­plantation on a piece of land for which plantation assistance has already been given.

    2. New project should be altogether a complete project with separate term loan and viability worked out separately by the bank. It should not be willfully split part of any other project for the purpose of availing higher subsidy. Accordingly, an integrated part of a project split for the purpose of subsidy shall not be allowed. The fact that a subsequent project has structural and operational integration with previous project may in itself may not be sufficient to establish willful splitting of original project if following two conditions are fulfilled­

      1. First or any of the previous projects (in case of several previous projects) is techno­economically viable as standalone unit,

      2. Subsequent project has neither been started nor has the loan for the same been applied for, prior to completion of, and release of subsidy for the first project.

Illustrations­ Subject to condition No. 2 above­

        1. Protected cultivation under separate poly­houses / green houses may be considered as separate project.

        2. Projects in open cultivation at new piece of land may be considered as separate project.

        3. A project of producing frozen peas / cut vegetables when split into processing unit with IQF as one unit and cold storage as second component shall not be admissible as two separate projects for the simple reason that processing with IQF components without storage facility at sub­zero temperature has to be integrated structurally and therefore, the processing unit without cold storage cannot be considered to be a complete project.

        4. Pack­house with or without pre­cooling facility as one unit and cold storage (zero degree and above temperature) as second unit may be allowed as two different projects for calculation of subsidy even though they are in same premises for the reason that they are independently viable projects.

    1. Wherever subsidy is claimed for the 2nd project or subsequent project (s) by same beneficiary, it would be essential that previous project (s) must be complete, operational and not abandoned by the promoter.

    2. Multiple proposals of Public Sector undertaking / State Govt. or state Govt. as partner under PPP arrangement may be accepted at a time wherever sizeable quantity of a produce is needed for commercial viability.

    3. These guideline shall be applicable w.e.f. 3 Dec 2008. As a result, proposal of issue of LOI turned down solely on the ground of upper limit of eligible subsidy on per beneficiary basis can be re­opened and decided as per revised guidelines. However, subsidy claims already decided for eligible subsidy, even though actual release of subsidy might not have taken place, should not be re­opened. Subsidy claims yet to be decided would be eligible for decision in accordance with the revised guidelines.
