"Success of the scheme depends on its effective implementation and for this the community should identify the beneficaries, as it was under the Jan Saviya Program of Sri Lanka", said Mahendra Lama, chairman, School of International Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University."Funds should be raised by abolishing non-merit subsidies.There is no point in providing free electricity to the rich farmers of Punjab at the cost of implementation of the scheme", added Lama.
...
"The accountability should be built on with time and exemplary punishments should be given during the first year to avoid any lapses in the future", said Lama."The BPL issue is another controversial term and there is no scientific method to deal with it.Lots of transparency is needed in the self-selection process to ensure that benefits reach to the destitute class of society", added Lama.

Dr. Mahendra P. Lama is the Vice Chancellor of Sikkim University, the first of its kind in the North East. This University is Central University created by an Act of Parliament in 2007. He was also the Professor of Economics in Jawaharlal Nehru University and chaired the prestigious Centre for South, Central, South East Asian and South West Pacific Studies in the School of International Studies. He has held several prestigious positions in the past which include Visiting Professorship and Fellows in various Universities in India and abroad. He also held the post of Chief Economic Adviser to the Chief Minister of Sikkim for seven years in the cabinet minister rank and wrote the first Human Development Report, first Economic Survey and now famous Nathu la Trade Route Report. He has represented India in many forum including in SAARC and ASEAN. He is the youngest Vice Chancellor of India.
Luckily I got the opportunity to share some minutes with the 47 year old Vice Chancellor when he gave me the appointment on 28 January 2008 at the new administrative building of Sikkim University at 5 pm. I especially wanted to know the present development of Sikkim University and his opinion on the Gorkhaland movement which he has been advocating through many papers and programmes and for last many years now. Here are the excerpts of his interview:
SikkimTimes: Sir, I heard that Sikkim University would be a world-class standard University.
Prof Lama: You are right.
...
Prof Lama : See!
...
Prof Lama : To be different is our strength.
...
Prof Lama : Presently we are designing and operationalising four policies.
...
Prof Lama : We shall have an exclusive and full School of Policy Studies.
...
Prof Lama : Yes, our university will also be different in work culture from other universities.
...
Prof Lama : Let me tell you it is a national University and you know that University is class-caste-ideology and religion neutral.
...
Prof Lama : We definitely have programmes and schemes to encourage the students from the region to come and partake the benefits of higher education under Sikkim University. We are designing them. We donot want any student to be handicapped by economic background in aspiring for higher education.
SikkimTimes: Regarding Gorkhaland movement which has again appeared in Darjeeling district, do you want to say anything?
Prof Lama : What is happening in Darjeeling is something positive.
...
Prof Lama : Hundred per cent as Centre is very favorable to us and Bengal Government has morally and psychologically accepted this. Only a legislative action is required now.
...
Prof Lama : It is just an assumption and is a figment of imagination.
...
Sikkim is proud to have Prof. Lama as VC of its University.
