Govt to approach Centre for special fiscal relief.

In a significant move, Governor N N Vohra today asked the State Planning, Development and Monitoring Department to urgently prepare a comprehensive State-wide list of all development projects which have been pending for years for want of the required financial resources resulting in speedily growing cost overruns. He also called for an assessment of the total funds required for completing all such projects within the next 2 years.

Chairing a high-level meeting this afternoon to review the status of public works projects, Governor observed that after Chief Secretary has drawn up a reliable assessment he would address the Govt of India and request for a one-time sanction of a special grant to complete all pending projects and put to use the investments made in these works.
