The contractor will complete the artificial lake in 10 months, SAC approves the revised project

The dream of artificial lake in Jammu will now be fulfilled soon. The State Administrative Council (SAC) in Srinagar on Tuesday chaired by Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha approved a revised project worth Rs 73.34 crore for the construction of the remaining works of Tawi barrage. This project will have to be completed by the contractor within 10 months after the e-tender.

The proposed barrage on the Tawi River is one of the three sub-projects of the prestigious artificial lake project. It is for recreational activities like boating and water sports to promote regional tourism in Jammu. Apart from this, the motive was also to make the city of Jammu beautiful. The other two sub-projects were the Tawi River Development Project and the beautification and mobilization of tourism facilities. These were to be completed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Department of Tourism.

The project was initially approved for completion in 2010-11 at Rs 70 crore. The project was supported by raising funds from various sources for the construction of an artificial lake, but the project was stalled for seven years due to the inaction of the contractor. Due to this the tender was canceled and then its price increased.

Now the administrative council has approved the revised project. It will be completed through e-tendering within ten months from the date of allotment at an estimated cost of Rs.131.53 crore. There is an additional fund of 73.34 crores, while Rs 58.19 crores has already been spent. Lt Governors Farooq Khan and Rajiv Rai Bhatnagar, Chief Secretary Dr Arun Kumar Mehta and Principal Secretary to Lieutenant Governor Nitishwar Kumar were present in the meeting.
