Khattar ask officials to ensure time-bound execution of projects

Chandigarh, Jan 24 (PTI) Observing that ensuring holistic and equitable development of Haryana is the utmost priority of his government, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday asked his officials to ensure time-bound execution of projects of their departments.

Khattar gave the direction while chairing a meeting of secretaries of six administrative departments entrusted with the task of executing some high-value developmental projects.

“Ensuring a holistic and equitable development of Haryana is the utmost priority of the state government,” he said in the meeting.

He directed the secretaries that the Programme Evaluation and Review Technique chart of every project should be made to have a clear picture of the timeline, completion percentage and expected inauguration date of all the projects. Free distribution of tablets to students of classes 9 to 12, as announced earlier, would be rolled out soon, Additional Chief Secretary (Education) Mahavir Singh apprised the chief minister of the status of the scheme.

During the meeting, Chief Secretary Sanjeev Kaushal informed Khattar that more than 80 projects of 14 departments are going on at present.

Of them, the 21 pivotal multi-crore projects of six major departments were reviewed in today’s meeting, an official statement said.

“Several review meetings of around 12 departments have already been held and the meeting of the rest of the departments would also be held soon,” said the chief secretary.

A review meeting of the projects wherein the inter-departmental consideration is required would also be personally held by the chief minister in the coming days, the statement said.

While reiterating his commitment to boost the state’s pace of development, Khattar earlier on January 9, had accorded approval for constituting a three-member committee headed by the chief secretary to review all the ongoing projects worth more than Rs 100 crore.

Kaushal would hold regular review meetings of this committee to ensure expeditious completion of all the ongoing development projects in the state, the statement said.

The chief minister was apprised of two major projects costing more than Rs 100 crore nearing completion.

They are the establishment of the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) in Sector-23, Panchkula, costing around Rs133 crore, and the Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), costing around Rs 128 crore, at village Kilorad, Sonipat on PPP mode.

Elaborating upon details of the establishment of the NIFT, Additional Chief Secretary Anand Mohan Sharan said the civil work has been completed, tenders have been floated and the project is expected to be completed by March.

The officials also informed the chief minister that Haryana Shahari Vikas Pradhikaran has provided land for the construction of a 200-bed hospital in Sector-9 in Fatehabad. The hospital is to be built at a cost of around Rs 235 crore and tenders for it would be floated soon.

The CM was also apprised of the tender which was to be floated soon for building a “mother and child block” in Faridabad Civil Hospital at Rs 103 crore.

“The complete details of the districts having no medical colleges or where the civil hospitals have not yet been upgraded from that of 100 beds to 200 beds should also be prepared,” Khattar told officials.

Haryana’s first bus terminal built on PPP Mode would be made operational this year, the CM was further informed.
