The government of Jammu and Kashmir is monitoring and assessing the impact of different schemes and programs on the ground in order to deliver their promises to the common people.

In this direction recently J&K Chief Secretary reviewed district-wise progress under various programmes

He asked DCs in all the districts of Jammu and Kashmir to lay special focus on timely execution of works, ensuring availability of construction material at reasonable prices.

He held a meeting with the district administrations and took stock of progress achieved under district development plans and various other government programs and schemes.

Continuing with the previous review of developmental works being undertaken under the District CAPEX, the Chief Secretary expressed concern over allotment of identified works and requested early commencement of execution of these works.

While observing that while some districts have shown good progress, few have still not reached the desirable level. He directed the Divisional Commissioners to regularly review the district-wise progress in this regard and ensure timely completion of all developmental works. While the performance of Shopian district in allotting 99% of identified works was appreciated, the lagging districts with less than 50% allocated works were directed to pick up pace and expedite the tendering process. He referred to the Supreme Court’s order regulating the sale of fire crackers, for which the Forest Department has also issued consequential orders; and asked the Deputy Commissioners to enforce them in letter and spirit, besides enforcing the COVID appropriate Behaviour and related SOPs and protocols.
