Government to bring important deptts under one roof in Bla
Baramulla, Aug 9: The administration in Baramulla has decided to bring all the important government offices in the district under one roof.
“We have decided to construct a building inside the premises of the deputy commissioner’s office which will house these departments so that people will have easy access to them and to the DC office also,” said District Development Commissioner, Baramulla Bashir Ahmad Bhat.
“The estimated cost of the project is around 514.32 lakh and it has been submitted to the Government for approval,” Deputy Director Planning, Abdul Gani Malik told Greater Kashmir.
The district administration has also devised a plan for the construction of a new mini secretariat. “The present mini secretariat building is not in a good condition. We have prepared a detailed project for the construction of the mini secretariat and the estimated cost of the project is around Rs 45 crores. The project will be soon submitted to the state government after the identification of the land,” Malik said.
The residents of the Baramulla town have hailed the move.
“These projects were conceived several years ago, but were later shelved without any reason. Even greater Baramulla, an Asian Development Bank funded project aimed to give face lift to the Baramulla town, has not been initiated yet. We urge the government that such projects should be initiated without any further delay,” said Bashir Ahmad, a social worker and RTI activist.
