Kheer Bhawani tenements develop cracks
Jammu, June 6: The Jammu and Kashmir Project Construction Corporation (JKPCC) has sought Rs 15 lakh from the state government to repair the tenements constructed by it at Kheer Bhawni in Srinagar’s Ganderbal district.
Sources told Greater Kashmir that nearly 20 flats constructed by JKPCC for Kashmiri Pandits have developed cracks. “These were exposed by the recent rains.”Cracks have created panic in the Corporation, which still holds the possession of the tenements.The project was completed around 2-years back with an estimated cost of Rs 20 crores out of which the government has already released an amount of Rs 16 crore.
Sources said the government has agreed to release the amount sought by the JKPCC. “The Corporation has to complete some formalities before formal orders will be issued in this regard,” they added. However, the JKPCC officials say that the leakage was a routine matter and amount is mandatory to be spent on renovation. “The state has not taken over the possession of the flats despite our repeated requests,” a senior JKPCC official said. “Non-usage is one of the causes for the cracks and leakage,” he added.
He said that the Corporation was entitled to claim 2 per cent of the total project cost for renovation for any such building.
