CEC Tashi Gyalson reviews status of JJM in Leh district
Leh, June 30: The Chairman/CEC, LAHDC Leh, Advocate Tashi Gyalson chaired a meeting today to review the status and progress of Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM) in the district.
The concerned officials apprised CEC Tashi Gyalson of the status of the ongoing work under the JJM and the work completed. DSE PWD also shared that several tenders under JJM failed to get responses that delayed the work as a re-tender has to be floated for such issues.
CEC Gyalson shared that the department should find a viable solution with regards to the clubbing of DPRs for tendering and directed concerned officials to float tenders on a DPR basis so that it doesn’t hamper the progress of the work. He directed the concerned officials to procure materials beforehand so that there isn’t delay in completing the work.
PHE and PWD officials put forward their issues regarding the shortfall of human resources to supervise and monitor their work and the permission to execute restoration and repair works during an emergency for their routine works carried under existing schemes.
CEC Gyalson directed the officials to submit a proposal to District Magistrate with proper justification regarding the shortfall of human resources. CEC Gyalson impressed upon the concerned officials to ensure that the mandate of JJM, which aims to provide quality and safe drinking water to every household, is not compromised.
Additional District Magistrate, Leh; Chief Engineer, PHE; District Superintendent Engineer, PWD Circle, Leh; Executive Engineers of PHE and PWD, Leh, and several Assistant Executive Engineers of the concerned departments attended the meeting.
