Jammu and Kashmir News
SRINAGAR, AUGUST 10: Issuing stern warning to the registered hot mix plant holders, the Minister for R&B Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari today said their licenses will be cancelled if they fail to participate in the macadamization drive started by the department across the state. He said only half of the registered hot mix plant holders are participating in the tendering process in view of the new quality standards adopted by the department. He said the department will issue licenses to unemployed youth to setup hot mix plants to ensure macadamization of maximum roads.
Threadbare discussion was held to resolve the problems of contractors and the limitations of the officers. The contractors expressed their will to work in double shifts aimed to cover maximum road length within limited working season. They also expressed satisfaction over the system adopted and the cooperation they are receiving by the government in execution of the job.
