Decongestion of old Baramulla town on cards
Baramulla, Jan 31: Proposal to de congest old Baramulla town is likely to be implemented in the coming days as the General Administration Department (GAD) has passed the order to constitute a committee to assess the requirement of roads for de-congestion.
The Govt order no.143- GAD, dated January 29, 2013, states: "Sanction is hereby accorded to the constitution of a committee for assessing the requirement of roads for de-congestion of old Baramulla town". "The committee shall submit the report within a period of two months and shall assess the requirement and come-up with the recommendations for addressing the critical requirements which can be completed within a period of two years," the order states.
Sources told Greater Kashmir that the district administration has already carried out a detailed survey of the old town. “The R&B department has devised a plan in this direction according to which around 120 shops would be shifted from the area and for the affected shopkeepers two shopping complexes would be constructed,” they added.
Sources said the district administration Baramulla has fixed Rs 23 lakhs per kanal as compensation for the affected families and the assessment for the houses would be carried out separately as per R&B norms.
The old town area is highly congested and a recent survey carried by Municipal Council Baramulla under a centrally sponsored scheme Integrating Housing Slum Development Program( IHSDP) has identified 21 mohallas in old town Baramulla as slums, owing to poor sanitation, poor drainage system and over congestion.
