ITBP expresses displeasure over delay in construction of residential quarters by CPWD


Indo-Tibetan Border Police Inspector General Vijay Kumar Singh has expressed displeasure over the slow pace of construction of residential quarters and barracks by the CPWD.

In a letter to the Central Public Works Department (CPWD) Director General, Prabhakar Singh, last week, Singh said out of the 1,970 residential quarters sanctioned in 2016-17, only 753 have been constructed, while 1,217 are still under construction.

The quarters were sanctioned under the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) mode.  The IG said as per the Ministry of Home Affairs’ direction, these residential quarters were to be constructed before January 2018.

Similarly, 48 barracks, each with a capacity to accommodate 120 personnel, were sanctioned in 2016-17, but out of these, construction of only 16 have been completed, according to the letter.   Read More
