The cluster is yet to receive the final instalment.

The areas covered by this cluster can be levelled as urban areas as soon as the ongoing developmental works are complete.

Following the recent declaration of the Ministry to form Keirao Makting cluster and Saikul cluster, the Ministry has approved the Integrated Cluster Action Plan (ICAP) for Keirao Mating cluster while necessary process of preparing DPR is going on, it said.

The source added that mandatory works will be'initiated right after receiving the first instalment of fund which will come following the Ministry's approval of the DPR.

On the other hand, for tribal cluster, the Ministry has also approved the formation of Saikul cluster within Kangpokpi district under the mission.

Altogether 28 villages will come under Saikul cluster, said the source while adding that necessary process for Integrated Cluster Action Plan is underway.

The action plan will be submitted to the Ministry for due approval before the first instalment of fund is released.

Population ranging from 15,000 to 20,000 is covered by one tribal cluster, while a population of 15,000 to 50,000 is covered under a non-tribal cluster, added the source.
