KATHUA, May 9: Deputy Commissioner, Kathua Rakesh Minhas on Tuesday chaired a meeting of officers to review the arrangements being put in place for smooth conduct of the Shri Amarnath Ji Yatra-2023. It was decided in the meeting that Registrar Suresh Chander will be the overall Nodal Officer for SANJY-2023, while DC State Taxes, Ranjeet Singh will act as Nodal Officer for Lakhanpur Facilitation Centre.
The DC, while reviewing progress of the arrangements, directed the concerned departments to focus on completion of remaining works well before the commencement of the Yatra keeping in mind the increased influx of pilgrims being anticipated due to easing out of Covid restrictions.

He further directed Municipal authorities, PWD, NHAI and RDD to ensure proper functioning and maintenance of public toilets during the entire period of Yatra.
Directing the concerned officers of NHAI & Tourism department, the DC called for ensuring installation of digital screens, hoardings and signages at Lakhanpur and at important points on Yatra route across the district.
It was given out in the meeting that cultural programmes will be held at Lakhanpur on opening day and during Yatra time for the entertainment of the Yatris. The meeting also discussed in length facilities in lodgement centres, illumination of dark spots, establishment of SRTC counter, control room, disaster plan, check on quality of food and eatables, proper sanitation on yatra route and enforcement of anti-polythene measures etc. Additional Deputy Commissioner, Deepika Rana, Principal GMC Kathua, ACR, RTO besides other officers attended the meeting.
