For this, Deputy Mayor directed Kapil Ghai SLTC J&K Housing Board to make sure that a proper survey of entire ward is conducted and installments are provided to beneficiaries without any delay, so that they can start construction work. Kapil Ghai assured the Deputy Mayor that he would make sure that all the directions are executed on ground level. Jagdish Kumar, Councilor Ward No 2 said that sites/ locations of various JMC assets/flats are not known to Councilors. Moreover, there is no way to transfer the assets/flats to people in need, he added. For this, directions were issued by Dy Mayor that a list of various assets/ flats will be provided to Councilors. As far as transfer and allotment of assets is concerned, a transfer policy has already been framed by JMC and has been sent to Government for approval, which is being followed up by ACR JMC, she added. Pritam Singh, Councilor Ward No 55 raised said that encroachment of government land is being done by immigrants from different places and hotels have been developed on banks of Nallahs at Bandu Rakh.
