Omar for blacklisting contractors for delay in meeting targets
Jammu, Apr 12: Contractors who unnecessarily delay completion of projects should be penalised and blacklisted, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said here today.
"The department concerned should penalise and blacklist those contractors who indulge in unnecessary delaying in completion of schemes in JK," Omar told Roads and Buildings Department officials while taking stock of the progress and status of Prime Minister Grameen Sadak Yojna.
"A clear cut message should go to all such contractors who are responsible for unnecessary delay in completion of works that government will not tolerate this at all," he said.
Omar said linking rural and remote areas with highways is all the more important in a state like JK, which has hilly and difficult terrain.
"Your focus should be on deriving maximum benefits by integrating schemes aimed at construction and upgrading road communication network in rural areas," he told the officials.
He said his government is focusing on construction of tunnels and making hilly and remote areas accessible for generating economic activities and helping comprehensive development.
