JKCCC Demands High-Level Investigation Into Lapse Of Funds


SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Contractors Coordination Committee Chairman Ghulam Jeelani Purza, on Monday said that the families of the contractors are on verge of starvation as the pending bills of the contractors have not been released since long.

Requesting LG led administration to conduct a high level inquiry into the frequent fund lapsing, Purza said that funds are being provided by the government on time, however, the same are held by departments for no reason and are provided to the DDOs in the last days of March resulting in fund lapse.

Purza said that this year also funds lapsed and the government officials were responsible for the same. Government should come to the rescue of the contractors and investigation at higher levels should be conducted.

JKCCC Chairman further said, “Government promised us that the money of all the contractors would be released, but the due money has not been released yet. Our money is stuck in R&B, PHE and other departments. For last three years, we have been running around government institutions. Our bills are pending from last many years, and should be settled immediately so that we will get some relief”.

He said that contractors are being harassed in the name of NOC and 345 contractors have been blacklisted. They are asked to bring verification from CID and NOC from police which ultimately makes their families suffer.

Government had made a policy for the rehabilitation of youth under various schemes and one such scheme was provision of contract cards to them. Some were hired as temporary employees and some were given loans. It was provided and invested in business so that the youth could earn their livelihood.

We hope our grievances are redressed at the earliest so that our families won’t have to suffer.
