Smart city projects have been progressing both in Jammu and Srinagar as these twin capitals of Jammu and Kashmir have been selected under these ambitious projects.
In order to see the progress on the ground recently Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha chaired a high-level meeting to review the progress being made on the prestigious Jammu and Srinagar Smart City Projects.
During the review meeting, he asked the concerned functionaries to make a visible impact while working with high professionalism and clear vision, so that people can see the change by their own eyes and will start believing in the administration that they are delivering what they have promised.
Laying special emphasis on accelerating the approval of DPRs and tender allotment process, he directed CEOs of Jammu Smart City Limited (JSCL) and Srinagar Smart City Limited (SSCL) for constituting a technical committee for early vetting of DPRs of the projects, so that the development of these two cities is not caught in the bureaucratic delay.
The constitution of technical committees will save the time so that the agency concerned is selected on time and the work is done within the time frame so that there are no deadlines missed by the contractors.
