PMKKKY is a programme meant for welfare of areas and people affected by mining-related operations, using the funds generated by District Mineral Foundation (DMF).

After threadbare discussion on proper utilisation of the collected amount and implementation of PMKKY scheme, the DDC directed DMO to release fund for already approved PHE schemes in Keerian-Gandial, Hatli and Bhed-Blore area after completing all codal formalities.
DDC further directed the officers of Medical department to conduct survey around Crusher sites and Industrial area for water sampling and assessing other harmful effects due to mining.

To check the illegal transportation of minor minerals in Kathua district, DMO informed that Five Mineral Check Posts have been sanctioned for the district to be established at Pandori, Keerian-Gandial, Jagatpur, Koota and Ludera area. The work on Keerian-Gandial post was almost complete and the work on the remaining posts was in progress.
