He also exhorted the concerned officers of executing agencies to make sure that necessary measures are taken to ensure quality of work.
Directing the executing agencies to ensure that the work is completed within the stipulated time, the LG said mega projects like AIIMS will certainly provide a boost to the healthcare sector in Jammu and Kashmir.
