Minister for PHE, Ch Sham Lal  informed the House that government has floated the Expression of Interest (EoI) for consultancy services for Jhelum flood management plan.

The minister said that Irrigation and Flood Control Department, Kashmir in collaboration with department of Disaster Management, Relief, Rehabilitation & Reconstruction of J&K, has floated the EoI for consultancy services for conducting surveys, studies, formulation of comprehensive FM Plan and preparation of detailed project report for flood management works on river Jhelum and its tributaries through Project Management Unit Jhelum Tawi Flood Recovery Project funded by World Bank.

Replying to a question by Abdul Rahim Rather, the minister said that three DPRs amounting to Rs.43.90 crore submitted for flood protection works on Gawran, Daksum, Gadole, Koril, Khalshi and Main Brenghi Nallah, have been cleared by Technical Advisory Committee (TAC).
