Jb. Mohammad Aijaz (IAS) Deputy Commissioner

In the age of globalization, as planet earth shrinks into a small village, Information Technology is changing our lives in unprecedented ways. The advent of IT revolution has made it possible for the information to flow, perhaps, as fast as the speed of light. One cannot rule out that windows of future may not be made of glass but of software. The current regime of transparent and efficient governance also necessitates the creation of a robust IT interface. The website created for District Ramban contains information regarding various facets of the district. The web portal is citizen friendly with features that diminish the distance between the citizens and administration. I Congratulate NIC, Ramban for developing the website. Efforts shall be to keep it updated in future also..

To harness the hydroelectric potential of River Chenab state government started construction of 900 MW Baglihar Hydro electric Power Project at Chanderkote. Ist phase of 450 MWs has been commissioned with a cost of 5827 Crore. IInd phase of 450 MWs is targeted to be commissioned by Jul 2015 with estimated cost of 3113.19 Cr. Another Hydro Electric Project of 1850 MWs is coming up at Sawalakote.

A 9.2 km long tunnel (Chenani-Nashri Tunnel) is being constructed about 2 km from Chenani town. The tunnel will be the India's longest road tunnel when completed. It will reduce the distance from Chenani to Nashri by 31 km and reduce traffic jams on NH-1A that occur due to snowfall and avalanche in winter at Patnitop. About 2 km of the tunnel had been excavated by April 2012,[4] about 50% of the length had been excavated by January 2013.[5] and the excavation was completed in July 2015. The road in the tunnel may open in the first half of 2016. In addition to the main road tunnel (13.3m in diameter), there will be a smaller parallel escape tunnel (5m in diameter) for emergency services and extraction of smoke and persons in case of fire and accident. The tunnel is located at an elevation of 1200m and is being built using the latest NATM technique of sequential excavation and support.[6] The tunnel will have a maximum overburden of 1,050m. The tunnel will reduce the elevation and hairpin bends associated with the existing highway. The gradient will also be reduced from 4.5% to about 0.5%. The Southern portal (end) of the tunnel is at 33.0463°N 75.2793°E and the Northern portal (end) of the tunnel is at coordinates 33.1285°N 75.2928°E. When the tunnel is completed, the highway will no longer pass through Patnitop. The tunnel will reduce the length of the highway by 31 km and the highway will bypass Patnitop. A new emergency hospital with capacity of 100 beds is also being completed at Chenani.
