SRINAGAR: Secretary, Civil Aviation Department (CAD), Mohammad Aijaz Asad, Monday chaired a meeting at Civil Secretariat to review progress of works being executed under Jammu Airport expansion project.

The meeting had detailed discussion on various issues pertaining to expansion of Jammu Airport including shifting of cattle sheds and hatcheries, shifting of Animal Husbandry Office, demolition of private structures, disbursement of structural compensation, physical progress/ infrastructural development of Jammu Airport terminal and land acquisition for the Apron.

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.
