    Development Boards

    The special responsibility entrusted with the Governor of Maharashtra under the Constitution is for ensuring:-

    • equitable allocation of funds for development expenditure over the three regions subject to the requirements of the State as a whole; and
    • equitable arrangements for providing adequate facilities for technical education and vocational training and adequate opportunities for employment in the services under the control of the State Government in the three regions subject to the requirements of the State as a whole.

    The responsibility of the Governor under Article 371(2) which has been stated in the Development Boards Order 1994 can be classified into three major heads namely (a) equitable allocation of funds for development expenditure, (b) equitable arrangements for technical education and vocational training and (c) equitable opportunities for employment in services under the control of the State Government. Since the equitable allocation of funds requires more detailed explanation, the other two heads namely, equitable arrangements for technical education and vocational training and equitable opportunities for employment in services have been taken first followed by allocation of funds.
