Some areas of Jammu district which earlier were under the jurisdiction of Jammu Development Authority (JDA) have now been included within the municipal limits, thus under the direct control of Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC).

The areas which have been included are Deeli, Bhour, Gadigarh in Digiana   Niabat, Rangoora, Dhawara, Majeen in Sidhra Niabat, Chakrattnoo, Chakjhalloo, Kaluchak, Sunjwan, Chowaddi in Bahoo Niabat. 

Similarly, in Muthi Niabat Dharmal, Muthi, Rakna-Nagbani, Akalpur, Sangrampur, Chalkpatyal, Gangwal, Thekrik Khanie, Panyal, Pattoli Brahamana, Machallya, Shahzadpur Bubba Ganiya, Chalkdurgoo, Thathar, Barnale,  Gajsalpura, Gudda Berhamma have also been added.

In Gole Niabat Chakpouni Wand, Waziran, Chakpouni Wand Brahmana, Sehora, Chak Gulami, Trilokpur, Kharian and Chak Sardar Atta Singh have also been included in the new initiative of extending the municipal limits of the Jammu City.

Jammu Development Authority vice-chairman, Rajesh Kumar Shavan told Greater Kashmir, “Some of the areas which were earlier governed by JDA on certain account will be governed by JMC now. The corporation will issue building construction licenses and look into the matters related to encroachments.”        

The move to this effect has been taken with the active intervention of the minister for Housing and Urban Development Sat Sharma who was keen to ensure that the developmental initiatives in housing and urban sector should also include various new areas which are in the catchment of the Jammu City and are touching its municipal limits.

The minister said that the initiative, which was long pending demand of the people living in these areas would ensure the extension of new initiatives being taken in the housing and urban development sector to accelerate the sustained development of these by providing them with the modern living and urban facilities at par with the other more developed areas of the state and the country as well. 

He said that ever since the present government has come into existence it has been its endeavour to give a fillip to the developmental programmes which would further result in the socio economic transformation of these areas and the state as a whole.
