Early Times Report

JAMMU, Nov 14: Governor Satya Pal Malik Wednesday directed the administration to gear up for completing the languishing developmental projects within the set timeframe so that the same are put to public use at the earliest.
Governor was speaking at a high-level meeting convened here this afternoon to review the implementation of the Action Plan for completion of the languishing projects in the state. Advisors to the Governor, K Vijay Kumar and Kewal Krishan Sharma; Chief Secretary BVR Subrahmanyam; Principal Secretary to the Governor, Umang Narula; Principal Secretary Health & Medical Education, Atal Dulloo; Principal Secretary Finance, Navin K Choudhary and other concerned officers were present at the meeting.
Stressing on the officers to accord top priority to this new initiative, Governor said Rs 8000 crore have been earmarked for completion of all such projects which are hanging fire for decades for want of adequate resources. "Inordinate delay in the execution of developmental projects not only leads to cost and time overrun but also fuels public dissatisfaction as they are not able to benefit from the same," he said. "While approving languishing projects for funding priority should be given to the key sectors including road communication, drinking water, education, healthcare, irrigation and sports," he said and added that all the long-pending projects should be strictly completed within the specified time-lines agreed to in the high-powered committee. He said no further time or cost overrun should be allowed under any circumstances on such projects.
Briefing the meeting about the Action Plan for completion of languishing projects, Principal Secretary Finance, Navin K Choudhary said that so far 1014 languishing projects in various sectors costing Rs 2171.91 crore have been approved for funding through newly established JKIDFC.
Navin, who is also the founder Chairman/Managing Director of JKIDFC, said till date three meetings of the HPC have been convened and 1014 languishing projects across the state in various sectors costing Rs 2171.91 crore have been approved for funding.
Advisors Kumar and Sharma and Chief Secretary also made some valuable suggestions on how to make this landmark initiative productive and result-oriented.
The Administrative secretaries assured the meeting that all the projects approved by HPC till date would be completed in next 18 months.
