GoI grant worth crores shelved at R&B for no reason
PM's package still on papers

Early Times Report
Jammu, Aug 14: The R&B department is leaving no stone unturned to make no use of the central grant meant for vital road projects in the state. However, so far the state authorities have cared little to address such a worrisome crises within the department.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 7, 2015 announced a whopping economic package of Rs 80 thousand crore for various developmental projects in the state. However, the work on most of the projects is either going on at a snail's pace or is in limbo due to the reasons best known to the R&B department.
As per reports, there are several highways that have missed the completion deadlines including the crucial widening of Srinagar-Baramulla-Uri Highway. The work, as per the officials, is going on at a very slow pace, hindering the overall project and rendering the money issued under PM's developmental package as useless.
"We fear that the money would get lapsed if the department continues to miss the deadlines one after the other. There is absolutely no seriousness being shown towards fast pacing the work on construction of new highways and expansion of the existing ones," sources divulged.
He added that slow progress has been achieved on Banihal-Qazigund and Qazigund-Srinagar road stretches where only 50 per cent work has been completed.
Officials stated that the much-awaited projects are getting delayed due to various bottlenecks including land acquisition, compensation issues and shifting of religious structures and public utilities.
As per the documents, out of the 80K crore package, the government had claimed last year that Rs 1400 crore were proposed for construction of semi ring road in Jammu, Rs 2700 crore for projects proposed to be taken up under Bharat Mala for length of about 105 Kms covered under tourist connectivity, Rs 130 crore for construction of double lane and Batote-Kishtwar-Sinthanpass-Anantnag (NH-IB, now NH-244), Rs 1800 crore for Srinagar-Shopian-Quazigund (2-Lane PS+Major Bridges), Rs 5100 crore for Jammu-Akhnoor-Poonch (2 Lane PS/4 Lane), Rs. 2100 crore for Chennani-Sudhmahadev-Goha including 3.0 km long tunnel (2 Lane PS), Rs. 4153 crore for Pakal Dul project subject to environmental clearance.
