Standardized Cost Estimates for Model Project for Disability and Rehabilitation Scheme of CAPART

The Standardized cost estimate has been prepared based on a model project prepared by Disability Action Division of the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment (Annexure -1). This model project will use standardized cost estimates for vocational training and income generation activities pertaining to various skill development programmes, which are being developed separately by CAPART. The whole strategy is to be based on the principle of community awareness generation through training and sensitization of Policy Makers / Leaders followed by vocational training / appropriate skill development of the beneficiaries, formation of Self Help Groups, suitable income generation activities for producing which have ready made market in the nearby areas. 

Various Factors determining the Cost of a Project

  • Location of the Project: The project cost varies depending upon the project area such as in terms of topography, location, state, accessibility to the area and the physical infrastructure available both with the VO and within the Project area. 
  • Second important consideration is the number of Beneficaries, which the project intends to benefit. 
  • The nature of the VO also determines to a greater extent the Cost of the Project. If the VO applying for CAPART assistance is already working in the area of Disability then it will require less infrastructural inputs then the Voluntary Organization that has recently begun interventions in this sector. 

The Standardized Cost estimates has been prepared in order to ensure qualitative implementation of all the projects, which are being sanctioned by CAPART. During a Project Cycle many unseen and other factors can lead to qualitative degeneration of the Project, which in turn can have serious repercussions for the overall achievements of the targets and the basic premise for which the particular project was sanctioned.
