Early Times Report
Kathua, Nov 19: At the most 4000 Hectare area of Marheen block of Kathua covering five Panchayats was worstly affected due to unseasonal rains causing huge loss to paddy growing farmers of the area, DDC, O P Bhagat informed today after visiting the farmers and taking stock of the situation.
It is pertinent to mention that Marheen area of Hiranagar Sub Division is famous for its Basmati, a type of long-grained rice, which is also the cash crop as well as the staple diet of the locals.

Later, the DDC also inspected the work of Highway Village near Logate Morh along the NH and directed the executing agency to expedite the work for timely completion of the project.
Earlier, the District Development Commissioner reviewed the implementation of Border Area Development Programme in three border blocks of Kathua.
