J-K admin sanctions Rs 121cr for development work

Srinagar, Sep 5 (PTI) The Jammu and Kashmir administration has sanctioned Rs 121 crore to undertake development work identified during the ‘Back to Village’ programme aimed at taking governance to doorsteps in rural and remote areas.

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.

According to an order issued by the Finance Department on Wednesday, an amount of Rs 5 crore each has been put at the disposal of district development commissioners of all 22 districts for taking up the work that came up during the ‘Back to Village’ campaign launched by the state administration between June 20 and 27.

The programme was primarily aimed at energising panchayats and directing development efforts in rural areas through community participation.

“The district development commissioner of each district shall identify high priority works with due impact and high visibility to be implemented as part of Back to Village programme in convergence with other schemes on the basis of reports finalised by officers during their visit,” the order read.

The list of the identified work shall be furnished by divisional commissioners within a period of 15 days and only such work shall be taken which can be completed during current financial year 2019-20.

“The Planning, Development and Monitoring Division shall evaluate five per cent of work selected on random basis within two months from the issuance of this order,” it added.
