Lt-Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Girish Chandra Murmu today directed all the departments to utilise only government land for all new projects to be initiated by the government henceforth. He has warned that strict disciplinary action would be taken in case of non-compliance with the order.
According to a government circular Circular No. 05-JK(GAD) of 2019, issued by the UT administration, the Lt-Governor, while reviewing the execution of projects, has “emphasized upon utilisation of government land as the first resort for all new government projects”.
“It is accordingly directed that all government departments shall use government land as a first resort for setting up of new projects. In the event of non-availability of government land, alternate options shall be explored by the departments after the Deputy Commissioner concerned certifies non-availability of government land,” the circular said.
