SRINAGAR, AUGUST 21: Governor Satya Pal Malik, in a meeting held at Raj Bhavan this evening reviewed to-date status of security and law and order scenario in J&K and Ladakh.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Sh. K.Vijay Kumar, Sh. K.K. Sharma, Sh. K. Skandan, Sh. Farooq Khan-Advisors to Governor; Sh. BVR Subrahmanyam, Chief Secretary; Sh. Umang Narula, Financial Commissioner to Governor participated in the meeting.

The meeting reviewed the response to the Back to Village programme. To kick-start the follow-up to this programme, Governor directed the Finance Department to place Rs. 5.00 crore  per district and Rs. 5.00 crore per Divisional Commissioner to start works on minimum of one work per Panchayat identified in Back to Village programme.

Further the funds released by the 14th Finance Commission to Panchayats so far (Rs. 800 crores) can be leveraged by DCs by incentivizing Sarpanches to spend money on Back to Village works with DCs giving a small matching grant for each work.

Governor was given assessment of the prevailing situation regarding the adequacy of essential supplies and delivery of various public services to the people including electricity, water supply and health care services in Kashmir, Jammu and Ladakh.
