MPLADS provides MPs five crore rupees per annum to identify and fund development projects in their constituencies, as per the guidelines drawn up by Parliament.

The role of MPs is limited to 'recommending' works as the actual implementation is done by local authorities. Therefore, the scheme does not violate separation of powers.

The MPs may recommend projects in sectors such as infrastructure development, public health, sanitation, water, etc.
