Languishing projects again stuck despite cleared by JKIDFC
2/16/2020 11:26:30 PM

SRINAGAR, Feb 16: Approved by Jammu and Kashmir Infrastructure Development Finance Corporation Limited (JKIDFC) for funding after remaining pending for years, several government departments have failed to make any progress on languishing projects in the new Union Territory.
Since December 2018, JKIDFC has approved around 5000 projects for funding which were languishing for years in Jammu and Kashmir.
However, several government departments are yet to resume work on these projects. “Some of the projects like road widening and construction of roads are languishing for years. Despite availability of funds, the Roads and Buildings Department, Housing and Urban Development Department has failed to start work on over 50 projects which are languishing for years,” an official said.
The official said there are over 80 projects in Rural Development Department which were cleared by JKIDFC for funding but nothing has changed on the ground. “The department has made no progress to start work on these projects,” an official of Rural Development Department said.
The official said most of these pending works fall in Chenab belt of Jammu region.
Sources said Principal Secretary, Arun Mehta, who is also chairman of JKIDFC has expressed serious concern over non-starting of works.
“Mehta has raised the issue with secretaries of several departments to ensure all the projects which got clearance from JKIDFC shall be started immediately,” an official of Finance Department said.
Lieutenant Governor Girish Chandra Murmu has also taken a serious note on non-accountability in implementation of developmental projects.
Principal Secretary Finance Department Arun Kumar Mehta has also directed departments to ensure geo-tagging of all the projects being implemented by the JKIDFC.
“With a view to ensure effective real-time monitoring of the projects being implemented by the JKIDFC, a geo-tagging facility has been created in the JKIMS portal,” a government document says.
The nodal officers as per the documents have to take photographs either online or offline mode through the JKIMS portal
As per the directives, the departments implementing languishing projects shall not forward the invoices without ensuring that the photographs are uploaded in the manner prescribed to get real-time picture of the work done at the time of generating the invoices.
