RAMBAN: In a significant development, Deputy Commissioner (DC) Ramban Baseer-Ul-Haq Chaudhary, along with a team of functionaries from stakeholder departments, cleared a major bottleneck on the road connecting Raikote Mandir village and its adjoining habitations.  The area was inaccessible, causing much inconvenience to over 300 families in the area.

The DC, alongside Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) Varunjeet Singh Charak; Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) Gool, Pawan Kumar Goswami; Assistant Executive Engineer (AEE) PWD, Naseer Ahmed Wanin and other officials conducted on spot inspection of the site and resolved the issue. The execution work on the 1.5 Kilometer road tendered out at an allotment cost of Rs 63 lakh  was held up for the past three years, preventing access to transport services to the residents.

The team led by DC supervised the execution work on the remaining/ held up 0.5 Kilometer, making it possible to move their vehicles on the road in a single day.

To overcome this challenge, the DC persuaded local farmers who had been affected by the road construction to allow its completion.  The DC also issued on the spot orders for paying compensation to farmers whose crops got damaged during the road construction process.

The successful clearance of the bottleneck will provide much-needed relief to the residents of village Raikote Mandir and its adjoining areas, ensuring access to essential services and improved connectivity.
