He asked the J&KMSCL to hold regular meetings with the stakeholders to ensure full functionality, operationalisation and effective utilization of DVDMS portal.

He directed the Jammu and Kashmir Medical Supplies Corporation not to entertain offline receipts of supplies so that online acknowledgement is ensured at all levels.
