Emphasizing on giving renewed push to the development works particularly those in the PW(R&B), PHE and the PDD sector, Chief Secretary asked DCs to monitor the execution of works including PMGSY projects to ensure their time bound completion.

Divisional Commissioners of Kashmir, Jammu and Ladakh were directed to monitor and review the progress of execution/implementation of the projects with the concerned Chief Engineers. He asked Divisional Commissioner, Jammu to review the availability of construction material in Jammu Division with the concerned DCs.

DCs were also asked to speed up expenditure against the District Plan-2019-20. Chief Secretary asked DCs to start immediately issuing the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) certificates to the eligible beneficiaries so that they can avail the benefits under the EWS category including admissions in the Medical Colleges under the MBBS/BDS quota for the year 2019-20.
