Dy CM reviews progress of projects in Power, Housing &Urban Development sectors

Deputy Chief Minister, Dr Nirmal Singh today called for early accomplishment of various developmental initiatives especially in the Housing & Urban Development and Power sectors. He said timelines shall also have to be strictly adhered to in the projects taken up under the Prime Minister’s Developmental Package (PMDP).

The Deputy Chief Minister was speaking during a review meeting convened to discuss the pace of implementation of various developmental initiatives undertaken in Housing, Urban Development and Power Sectors.

The Dy Chief Minister called for regular monitoring of the projects in power sector to ensure their timely completion and judicious utilization of resources. He asked the concerned officers to regularly monitor the works on ground so that targets are optimally achieved.

 He also reviewed the present position of power supply and pace of work on various ongoing PDD projects. He stressed on augmentation of power infrastructure, and strengthening of the system, which he said is vital to realize the dream of uninterrupted power supply in the State.

He asked the officers to follow the already notified curtailment schedule and avoid unscheduled power cuts especially in the winter zone of the state. He also directed to re-examine all feeders and adding more feeders into the system wherever it is necessary to minimize snapping of high-voltage power lines.

To ensure speedy repair of electric transformers, the Deputy Chief Minister called for increasing the capacity of the department’s workshops. He said steps are afoot to increase the human resource of the Department to better cater to rising demands.

Dr Singh also reviewed progress on various ongoing works under PMDP. 

While reviewing the initiatives being undertaken in the housing sector, the Deputy Chief Minister directed for maintaining a close co-ordination between different executing agencies so that the fast pacing of the flagship programs is done. 

Dr Singh while directing for early construction of Shelter for Urban Homeless (SUM) under NULM said that it would go a long way in addressing the housing needs of urban homeless.
