About the Event
The release of funds in the government schemes is normally based on the utilization of previous releases, which leads to an inherent focus on the quantum of expenditure rather than on the quality of expenditure. Therefore, a need has been felt to allocate finances for schemes based on achievement of results. A considerable number of programmes and pilots have been tested out and implemented by various multilateral agencies like Program for Results (PforR) and Output-Based Aid (OBA) by World Bank. Certain Ministries/Departments of Government of India are also testing waters by linking partial budget to achievement of results (for example Conditionality Framework of National Health Mission of MoHFW and Revamped Distribution Sector Scheme of Ministry of Power which has provision for Result-Linked financial assistance).

With this backdrop, the Development Monitoring and Evaluation Office (DMEO), NITI Aayog brings together experts in the domain of institutionalizing result-based financing within the M&E system. Through this discussion, the panel will explore different approaches, best practices, challenges, and way forward towards addressing how M&E systems and practices can adapt to be effective in the Indian context.
