Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 27: Though the government on Monday ordered the constitution of a high level committee to execute the Smart City proposals for Jammu as well as Srinagar, what it undermined outright was the fact that out of sanctioned Rs 500 Cr. the Govt has so far spent mere 1.5 Cr. in last two years
According to an order issued by the General Administration Department (GAD) on Monday, the Selection Committee shall interview the shortlisted candidates and make specific recommendations of suitable candidates for engagement of CEOs against advertised posts subject to suitability, experience and qualification.
The government order reads that the selection committee for Srinagar and Jammu Smart City Limited will have Administrative Secretary, Housing and Urban Development Department as Chairman. The members will be Administrative Secretary, Finance Department, Administrative Secretary, Power Development Department, Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, Administrative Secretary, Forest, Ecology and Environment Department, Administrative Secretary, Tourism Department and Expert in Urban Planning and Development from the University of Kashmir/Jammu.
The Selection Committee shall interview the shortlisted candidates and make specific recommendations of suitable candidates for engagement of CEOs against advertised posts subject to suitability, experience and qualification.
The Committees shall be serviced by the Housing and Urban Development Department.
As per the official documents in possession of the Early Times, the central government has sanctioned an estimated amount of 500 Crore rupees out of Prime Minister's special package for the creation of smart cities in the twin capitals of the state. As the entire amount of Rs 500 crore stands sanctioned since the year 2017, mere 1.50 crore have so far been spent in Jammu and Srinagar districts on the project. The figures have once again taken a lid over the government's non- serious approach towards ensuring the timely completion of the developmental projects in the state. It has also shown how the government which keeps trumpeting its achievements on ensuring time bound completion of the vital projects has even failed to create a single Smart Lane, leave alone making the twin capitals Smart.
