Jammu, February 20: Chamber of Commerce, Jammu today, through a press conference, tried to draw the attention of the Honorable governor of Jammu and Kashmir with various points which are as follows
Sir, the check list to apply for issuance of a State Subjects need to be reviewed and simplified. If a person applying for a State Subject has the State Subjects of his Father and Grandfather already then there should be no need for any other document and the same should be issuedwithin 3 days of applying. At the same time no steps have been taken for digitalization of records which is the need of the hour as it is difficult to get certificates regarding old records from Mahafiz Khana
Super Specialty Hospital in Jammu
Sir, the functioning of Super Specialty Hospital in Jammu has not met the purpose for which it was created and the people are being denied the Right to Medical Treatment which is a Fundamental Right. The People at large have to go to the other states to get treated which is very inconvenient and costly. We request your good self to take effective steps to make it a visible Super Specialty or Outsource the same. We also request that this very institution should be made a Paid Medical Institution at a subsidized cost so that it can meet up the expenses needed to run it smoothly.
Master Plan for Jammu
Sir, Its excruciatingly agonizing that the Master Plan for Jammu has not seen the light of the Day. The business people are being constantly harassed for the reason that their business premises are not in the commercial declared zones. Sir , We ask the government “ Where are the Commercial Spaces and parking spaces” which we feel were never thought to be created for the young generations and new enterprenuers who are working without any support from the government. It may not be out of place to mention that there are more than 6 crore traders in india employment to 46 crore people and contributing 45% to GDP with annual turnover of about 39 lakh crore of rupees but still are being neglected and harassed in our state. We request your goodself to take urgent steps in this regard keeping into consideration the existing practical facts and declaring the existing business places having more than 50% commercial activity as commercial areas.
Work Progress on sanctioned developmental Projects in Jammu
Sir, it a matter of great concern that the Projects already sanctioned have either yet to be started or the pace of work is invisible. We request your goodself to make pubic the factual status of projects like Gandola , Artificial Lake , Mubarak Mandi , Patnitop development and Convention Centre and also take effective steps to make their completion time bound.
Setting up of AIIMS in Jammu and Srinagar
Sir , the GOI had constituted a team to visit and finalize the sites for setting up of AIIMS in both Jammu and Srinagar. The team has already visited Jammu but their visit to Srinagar is still awaited. We request you good self to take up this matter on priority basis so that the much awaited proper notification for setting up of AIIMS in both regions of the state could be issued by GOI.
Airport Expansion at Jammu
Sir , We request your good self to take urgent steps to hand over 800 kanal of Land allotted to the Department of Animal Husbandry in Belicharana lying defunct to the Airport Authority of India who have sufficient funds to create a state of art airport in Jammu. This would help in safe landing of flights , more flight , lesser cost of tickets and help the ailing economy of Jammu.
Action against Tainted / Non Performing Public Servants
Sir , While we appreciate your present directives that have led to visible work culture in the various government departments we also request your good self to act immediately against Tainted and Non Performing Public Servants . We also request you to make sure that Persons holding key posts which are the face of our state are such who are persons of integrity and not such who are facing corruption charges or strictured by the judiciary .
Abolition of Interview system for Non Gazatted Posts
Sir, we request you to review the system of Interviews for the Non Gazatted Posts which we feel should be abolished as it leads to corrupt practices and deprives the genuine common man who does not have influence to get jobs.
