In Srinagar and Jammu cities, the J & K administration is trying to make new townships so that middle class people in these cities can have their own homes.

In this connection recently LG Manoj Sinha said that the ongoing transformation in Srinagar, Jammu and their neighbouring towns is the harbinger of sustainable development.

He recently laid the foundation stone of Srinagar Development Authority’s Satellite Township at Rakh Gund Aksha & a Housing Colony at Bemina, Srinagar.

Congratulating the SDA officials for developing the first of its kind satellite township in Kashmir division, he said the new initiative is aimed to decongest the city and to meet the needs of affordable homes for growing population.

The housing colony ‘Shehjar Heights’ is a symbol of aspiration of the middle class.  The two projects will not only provide quality and valuable space for families but also become the driver of economic development and unlock the potential of local economies.

He emphasized on accelerating the speed and scale of the development to meet the requirements of the increasing population. He directed the H&UDD to conduct periodic review of the projects to ensure that these projects are completed within the timeframe.

The township shall be self-contained with building infrastructure for businesses, offices, commercial & institutional buildings, hotels and other facilities designed to make living and working comfortable.
