March18: Foundation stone for Int. trade centre laid in Pampore

Quote:
PAMPORE (KASHMIR): Trade in Jammu and Kashmir is set to get a boost with the laying of the foundation stone for a Rs. 115.84-crore International Trade Centre (ITC) here.

To be completed in two years, the ITC will be the first of its kind in the State with state-of-the-art exhibition halls, facilitating international exhibitions in the Valley during summer. The Centre had allocated Rs. 30 crore initially for the project, said Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad who, along with Union Minister of State for Commerce Jairam Ramesh, laid the foundation stone.

Mr. Ramesh said the ceremony was a dream-come-true for traders in the Valley as the process for the project had begun 25 years ago.

The Minister said 40,000 carpet weaving looms in the State would be modernised over the next five years. For this, the Centre would extend a financial assistance of Rs. 17 crore annually.

Every year, 8,000 looms would be modernised with 75 per cent government assistance.

Mr. Ramesh asked the Jammu and Kashmir Bank to explore the possibility of providing soft loans to artisans.

Such development is well-over due in Kashmir...im glad to say things seems to be getting better. I am a firm believer that economic prosperity always has positive implications for promoting peace and reducing troubles.

Nitro, Hindusthani - I am glad that slowly the situation in Kashmir is returning back to normalcy. With most of the chicken's gone home to roost and the remaining being wiped out, Kashmir is definitely on the path to return to its rightful former glory.

anyways here are some more images of the tulip garden -

Wonderful and inspiring images! It's so much regrettable to see what has come upon this piece of paradise called Kashmir. I hope that this place will regain its lost glory soon enough!

PM to open India’s 1st pylon bridge in J&K today

State’s Longest Bridge To Link Jammu With Rajouri, Poonch




Quote:
Thirty-one years after its first foundation stone was laid, the country’s first pylon to pylon (PTP) bridge connecting Jammu with bordering districts of Rajouri and Poonch will be opened for traffic by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday.
The 280-metre-long bridge supported by steel pillars (pylon) is the longest one in the state. “The country’s first PTP bridge will be inaugurated by the PM on April 25 and will connect Rajouri and Poonch districts with Jammu,” official sources said here. It took 31-long years for a concrete bridge to come up across the Chenab and will replace the existing steel-girder span. What was envisioned to be done at a cost of Rs 77 lakh in 1977 was finally accomplished this year at a cost of Rs 23 crore. The then CM Sheikh Mohmmad Abdullah had laid the foundation stone of this bridge on April 7, 1977. In 1984, another foundation stone was laid for the construction of the bridge by a central minister. The construction of the bridge, which is the longest pre-stressed concrete span among all bridges in the country, was sanctioned in May 1977 at a cost of Rs 77 lakh by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO), an official said, adding the contract for the construction was awarded to NBCC Limited and the work commenced in 1978.

They should install some heavy machine gun/rocket launcher along with the bridge. Just kidding..
It looks great. By the way, what is pylon to pylon (PTP) bridge? Is it kind of suspension bridge(I can’t see any pillar in between the sides). Is anyone civil engineer here?

I'm glad to note that this long standing bridge has finally been build. Does someone knows if the new road being build that was to be linked along with it has also been built completely?

As a kid, I'd lived for 2 years right next to this bridge's site in early 80's, and always wondered if this project would ever take off. All I saw during that period was some basic work in that area. So it was a welcome news to see this bridge finally getting completed!

Rs 40.5 cr UGC funds for new colleges in J&K

Quote:
JAMMU: The University Grants Commission has released Rs 40.5 crore for the construction of four new colleges in Jammu and Kashmir and will be providing foundation training courses for principals at Bangalore.

Around 50 percent of funds would be released during the current financial year for the upcoming colleges at Uri and Bijbehara in the Kashmir valley and Ramban and Billawar in Jammu division, it was decided at a meeting convened by UGC secretary R K Chauhan here today.

He said it was granting Rs 5-6 crore assistance per college at the national "but for Jammu and Kashmir, the percentage is much higher".

There was a proposal for opening 30 universities across the country and keeping in view its border location, one such university would come up here so that the benefits of higher education reach the weaker sections and minorities, Chauhan said.

J&K to get 1,000 MW thermal power project soon: Shinde

Quote:
Jammu and Kashmir would soon get its first 1,000 MW thermal power project to boost power generation in the state, the Power Minister, Mr Sushil Kumar Shinde has said, adding that the 120 MW Phase -II of Sewa hydel power project in Kathua would be completed by 2009.

After inaugurating rotar rowering of three turbines of 40 MW each in Sewa hydel power project phase-II at Hat Mashka in Basohli area of Kathua district, Mr Shinde told reporters that second phase of the project would be completed at a cost of Rs 665 crore by June 2009.

He also said that Jammu and Kashmir would soon get a 1,000 MW thermal power project to meet its power demand during winter, when generation is less due to snowfall and water shortage. He said all efforts are being made by National Hydro-electric Power Corporation (NHPC) to complete phase-II of the Sewa hydel power project by the said date. However, he remained non-committal on handing over of Dulhasti power project to Jammu and Kashmir.

The project had been dedicated to the nation by the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh in Kishtwar, last month. Mr Shinde said a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the power ministry and Jammu and Kashmir government on construction of three power projects -- Karwa, Pakal Dul and Kiru - over river Chenab in Kishtwar district will be signed within the next 3-4 days. These three power projects would go a long way in meeting power requirements of the state, he said.

Mr Shinde said that with the completion of Sewa hydel power project phase-II, Jammu and Kashmir will get 12.5 per cent free power, which too, would contribute a lot in increasing power capacity of the state.

Announcing Rs three crore for carrying out development works in the area around Sewa hydel project, he said the amount would be utilised for road connectivity, construction of a hospital and other development works.

Jammu&Kashmir to get central university, IIM

Quote:
Srinagar, May 11: Jammu and Kashmir will soon have a central university and an Indian Institute of Management.

The Union Ministry of Human Resource Development will set up a campus of the proposed Indira Gandhi National Tribal University.

This was decided during the meeting between Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad and Union HRD minister Arjun Singh yesterday in New Delhi, an official spokesman said today.

The two prestigious institutions would be set up one each in Kashmir and Jammu provinces.

The Chief Minister requested Singh for setting up a campus of the tribal university. He argued that since the state has a sizable ST population, a campus of the university in J&K would go a long way in promoting higher education among tribal population.

Azad also took up with the union minister the need for opening of women degree colleges and ITIs in the districts of the state where these facilities were not available.

The union minister assured Azad that this would be sympathetically considered, the spokesman said.

cool, another institution named after the family.

People in India must be witnessing a shameless Arjun Singh groveling in front of Sonia Gandhi and telling the media how he has pledged his loyalty to the Gandhi-Nehru family.

Bloody slave.
