Early Times Report
Jammu, May 8: Delay in land acquisition for the main canal of Check Dam on Basantar River at village Taloor in Samba district, is hampering second phase of work of Check Dam project.
It is pertinent to mention here that the ambitious check dam project which is supposed to irrigate dry land of Kandi belt of Samba district was announced in 2007. The construction work started in 2008 with an estimated cost of Rs 14.75 Crores under the Centrally Sponsored Scheme Accelerated Irrigat-ion Benefits Programme (AIBP).
However, now the project (barrages work) has been completed after more than 10 years from the inauguration but the second phase is still lingering on due to slow pace by department concerned in land acquisition for main canal.
Sources informed that after completion of phase-I construction work successfully, the department of Irrigation and Flood Control of Samba district had made another proposal of Rs 2.78 Crores for the second phase of project wherein the department would construct the main canal for irrigation purpose and its allied canal network and Water Lifting Machineries would also be installed on Check Dam at Taloor village on Basantar river.
"However, the project has got the Union government's nod for the execution but ironically the land acquisition has still become a bottle neck for the project", said sources while wishing anonymity. Assistant Executive Engineer of Flood Control Department, Samba, Ashok Kumar who is mentoring the project admitted that some farmers are reluctant to give up their land for construction of main canal and negotiations are going on with the farmers. "Soon the work of second phase would be commence", said he.
