Recently LG Manoj Sinha inaugurated many such projects. Installation of 29 Oxygen Generation Plants in CHCs and SDHs of various remote areas of the UT will add 11,000 LPM to the existing capacity. The vital road projects will strengthen road connectivity to flood-prone areas and provide the people living there with faster and improved access to markets, health and educational facilities. Besides, Decision Support System, Multi Hazard Risk Assessment Report & Disaster Risk Database, and Upgraded Building Codes for J&K will improve the disaster management response in J&K.
