SRINAGAR: Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir, Baseer Ahmad Khan, on Thursday convened a meeting to review the condition of roads in the Srinagar City.
Deputy Commissioner, Srinagar, Dr. Farooq Ahmad Lone, Chief Engineers of R&B, PHE and PDD, Commissioner SMC, GM BSNL, Deputy Director Planning and other concerned officials were present in the meeting.

The concerned departments have been asked to lift the excavation material within 24 hours from the roads and undertake the restoration work as per the specifications of R&B Department.
In the meeting, the Chief Engineer, R&B, was deputed as Nodal Officer, who will ensure better coordination between these departments.
