Cabinet gives authorisation to procure 6500MT of Bitumen VG-10 from open market

SRINAGAR, AUGUST 21: The Cabinet which met here today under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, authorised the Stores Procurement Department of PW(R&B) to buy/ procure deficit Bitumen of VG-10 grade amounting to 6500MT from open market.

The PW(R&B) Department has undertaken a massive up-gradation programme of more than 1000km with a consequent large requirement of Bitumen. Further, the short working season in the State, particularly in Kashmir renders the entire exercise critically time bound for which availability of the full quantity of Bitumen within the working season is a must.
