J&K - Budget 2022-23 brings revolution for J&K housing and urban development

01 May 2022

The government is giving high priority to building sustainable and smart cities that are resilient to meet the challenges posed by rapid urbanisation. In order to deal with the influx of people towards the cities, the Jammu and Kashmir government and the central government are working shoulder to shoulder to cater to the demands of the local urban populace. During the current financial year, 76 projects are likely to be completed under the AMRUT mission and the remaining projects are to be completed during 2022-23 such as the construction of a multi-level car parking facility at Panjtirthi Jammu, construction of five nallahs of Tawi River Phase-II, green space at Roop Nagar, and so on. Under Smart City Mission, 95 projects are likely to be completed by the end of the current financial year and 80 more projects are to be completed in 2022-23. Nine major sewerage schemes at an estimated cost of Rs 11.31 billion will be executed during 2022-23 benefitting the population of 620,565. To decongest both the capital cities and provide modern transport facilities to the people of J&K, the government has submitted a final Detailed Project Report (DPR) of Rs. 105.99 billion for metro rail projects in Jammu and Srinagar to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA). The project is expected to be rolled out in 2022-23 and is likely to be completed in 2026.
