Recently Secretary, Civil Aviation Department (CAD), chaired a meeting at Civil Secretariat to review progress of works being executed under Jammu Airport expansion project.

The Secretary was informed about the work done, so far, besides apprising of the issues related to removal of structures, handing over possession of the land and other miscellaneous project related matters.

To ensure seamless execution of the prestigious project, the Secretary asked the concerned officers to work in a coordinated manner and expedite the pace of progress on the project for timely completion.

He asked Director Animal Husbandry Department to start shifting cattle from Belicharana to the new farm at Chattha as soon as it is made functional by PWD in the first week of May, 2024. He also said that an alternate mechanism has to be evolved to shift the poultry within a fixed period of time to prevent undue delays. He further directed the concerned authorities to remove all illegal structures within 100 meters of the Airport boundary as requested by the Airport Authority(AAI).
