BRO at work
Border Roads Organization is at work in the different areas of Jammu region and in a review meeting held recently they asked the government to expedite all those cases of land acquisition which are pending with many DC’s of Jammu.
In a recent PowerPoint presentation, BRO apprised the Div Com Jammu about the issues that need to be addressed for speedy work.
He had threadbare discussions on each project/ work and directed the concerned DCs to resolve all the projected issues on priority so that the roads are completed within the timeline without any further delay.
Border Road Task Force has informed the Divisional Administration of Jammu about the completed projects and roads under construction besides issues needed to be resolved.
The issues pertaining to Land Acquisition, Forest clearance, issuance of Short Term Permits for minor minerals etc were discussed and they were assured that all the bottlenecks would be removed by the administration at the earliest so that road connectivity becomes a reality for those far flung areas which have no access to the roads.
He instructed the Deputy Commissioners to follow the permissions of STPs so that STP can be issued to meet the requirements of minor minerals to BRO for expeditious completion of work.
He took strong note of delayed payments of compensation in some districts and directed the concerned officers to put in place a mechanism for reconciliation of data and ensure the compensation amount is disbursed to the land owners in time.
