The Principal Secretary sought a detailed briefing on progress of the restoration works inside the complex and structures that needs to be preserved, besides several other important issues pertaining to restoration of Dogra Art Museum, preservation of historical records, restoration and conservation of various components.
During his visit to the Museum, the Principal Secretary laid special emphasis on the protection of local manuscripts. He directed the concerned officers to take necessary measures to safeguard the buildings and documents that required immediate protection.
He asked the officers of the concerned departments to work in synergy with the consultants and experts for the proper execution of the restoration work of the heritage complex.
He also directed the concerned officers to explore the possibilities of putting up some projects on PPP mode and to take all requisite measures to remove bottlenecks so that the Mubarak Mandi Heritage site could be resorted at the earliest.
Reiterating the government's commitment towards conservation and protection of the rich culture and heritage of J&K, the Principal Secretary said that special focus is being laid on protection and restoration of places with heritage significance like Mubarak Mandi complex.
He directed the officers for executing all works and engaging conservation experts as per norms and further asked the executing agencies to prepare a detailed draft of the future course of action for the restoration work of the heritage complex.
