Jammu, Oct 18: The poor conceptualization of the much needed sewerage project by the Housing and Urban Development Department (HUDD) coupled with inadequate survey of the alignment of the sewer line resulted in non completion of the project even after the lapse of 10 years and caused loss of Rs 67 crore.
Sources told Early Times that a comprehensive sewerage scheme for Dvision "A" of Greater Jammu was sanctioned in 2006 by Government of India under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM) at a cost of Rs 129 crore. The scheme was allotted to National Building Construction Corporation Limited (NBCC) and was targeted to be completed by March 2014.
"The Detailed Project Report of the project envisaged construction of a 27 (Million Liter Per Day) MLD Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP) along with 32,007 meters of Trunk Sewer Line (TSL) and 90740 meters Lateral Sewer Line (LSL) to connect to 30,400 households," they said further adding that after surveying the site conditions, the company allotted the work of construction of 26, 536 meters of TSL and 65, 500 meters of LSL to the sub contractors. However, during execution of work of the sewer lines, it was seen that some links were omitted in the main project. In order to cover the missing links, another DPR was sanctioned March 2012 by Government of India for laying of additional 1050 meters of TSL and 36220 meters of LSL at an estimated cost of Rs 20.32 crore, they informed.
"As of March 2016, the laying of sewer lines remained incomplete due primarily to non-shifting of utilities by Public Health Engineering (PHE) and Power Development Departments. In the meantime, the Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP) was constructed at a cost of Rs 13.58 crore which remained unutilized due to lack of connecting sewer lines. For completion of the projects, the construction company demanded an additional amount of Rs 34 crore which was yet to be provided by the State Government," they said.
