Do spread the word around. Hope the schools, NGOs and temples are aware of this.

 All state MIC liaison committees have until Dec 31 to submit applications for Federal Government allocations to assist Tamil schools as well as Indian places of worship and NGOs in the respective states.

MIC president Datuk G. Palanivel said the deadline was to enable funds to be disbursed next year.

After receiving the applications, MIC’s headquarters would prepare a budget for allocations to be given out, either once or twice a year.

“It is difficult when they keep asking us for funds all year round.

“We cannot be going to the Prime Minister’s Department every now and then asking for allocations on their behalf,” he said after presenting RM185,000 in federal aid to six temples, a church and an NGO at the Penang state library auditorium here yesterday.

Palanivel, who is also Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, said once he knew the amount, it would be easier to obtain the allocation.

He said the money was usually for minor projects such as repairs and extensions, upgrading of toilets, electrical wiring, water pipes and drainage systems as well as for community programmes.

He encouraged Indian community leaders to contact MIC division leaders in their respective areas to submit proposal papers for the projects they planned to carry out.

“Some temples and NGOs miss out on the allocations because they submit their applications late and all the funds have been disbursed,” he said.
