Divisional Commissioner Kashmir Baseer Ahmad Khan Monday stressed upon the authorities concerned to speed up rehabilitation process and clear pending cases immediately so that widening work of the city roads takes place at earliest.
The Divisional Commissioner made these remarks while chairing 249th High-Level Committee (HLC) meeting of Circular Road (CR) project regarding cash compensation to beneficiaries whose structures came under the project.

Removal of critical bottlenecks at Naqashpora junction on western foreshore road, Nawa Kadal Bridge, Shalla Kadal, Karfalli Mohalla on Kani Kadal-Khanwari Road and Shah Mohalla Nawab Bazar on Syed Mansoor Nawab Bazar roads were also reviewed for acquisition process.
During the meeting, cash compensation in lieu of plots and shops was approved in various cases in favour of affected families whose structures come under the project. The cash compensation was given to families as per field verification, submission of Aadhaar cards and other requisite formalities.
