Srinagar, Mar 13 : After missing the deadline for the completion of several smart city projects in Srinagar, the government of India has directed the authorities in Jammu and Kashmir to ensure the completion of all the projects by June of this year.

Sources privy to the development told the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) that following the failure to meet the earlier deadline for project completion; the GoI has mandated the timely execution of all pending and ongoing projects by mid-2024.

“Out of the 158 projects earmarked, approximately 93 have reached completion. However, significant work remains, with many projects still in progress and others in the tendering phase. The directive stresses the completion of all pending and ongoing projects by June 2024,” the sources disclosed.

According to the smart city officials in Srinagar, the five-year project plan started in 2018 for which funds of around Rs 1000 Cr were allocated for various smart city projects, of which over Rs 500 Cr have been spent on many projects.

Although, according to the Srinagar Smart City officials several works may have been completed, it is pertinent to mention that there are several projects which are ongoing and are causing disruptions for the movement of transport in the city.

Notably, the earlier deadline for the completion of Smart City Projects in Srinagar was slated to be on Dec 2023, but failing to meet the deadline a revised and final date has been issued by GoI for the completion of all the projects in the city—(KNO)
