On path of development

Jammu and Kashmir according to the administration is on the path of development as there is a focused attention on the completion of projects within the prescribed time so that they do not linger on the ground and become white elephants.

Recently LG Manoj Sinha said that there has been an increase in the pace of the development across Jammu and Kashmir and said that all the executing agencies of different developmental projects have been told to complete their work on the ground within the prescribed time.

He said that proper documentation of development projects with photographic evidence with geo-coordinates is an effort towards enhancing transparency and accountability in the execution of works in Jammu and Kashmir.

The UT of J&K has achieved an unprecedented level of transparency in the financial management through a host of financial reforms and interventions made by the Government which include the activity-wise online release of funds through “BEAMS” (Budget Estimation, Allocation and Monitoring System); “EMPOWERMENT” (Enabling Monitoring and Public Overview of Works Being Executed & Resources for meaningful Transparency) web portal whereby the details of projects and related expenses are put in the public domain, making administrative and technical approvals, e-tendering, geo-tagged photographs mandatory for payments; online billing through “JK Payment System”; streamlining of GST; e-stamping; e-GRAS; digital payments; implementation of GeM; publication of important manuals relating to Budget and Audit, Back to Village and My Town My Pride initiatives and 100% physical verification of projects.
