Badalta Manzar (March 28, 2014): An independent news report on Jammu and Kashmir

Moving away from horizontal expansion of residential houses, vertical construction has been introduced for the first time in Srinagar, in order to ease the pressure on city land. The Jammu and Kashmir Government is promoting vertical housing colonies in Srinagar in an effort to stop the trend of consumption of agricultural land for residential and commercial purposes. The public health care centre at Akingam was set up with the aim to provide better health care facilities to residents of the area, but this goal has not been met, as the PHC lacks basic facilities like X-rays and USG. Jammu has been waiting for its first artificial lake for long. Since the foundation stone was laid in December 2009 for the 140 crore ambitious project, it has missed many of its deadlines.
