To improve the livelihood of Jammu city and to make Jammu an encroachment free city, a robust grassroots level mechanism is required for Jammu City. In this regard, a detailed City livelihood plan as well as steps taken for making Jammu City encroachment free city was discussed in the Executive Committee meeting held today under the Chairmanship of Mayor Jammu, Rajinder Sharma in the Conference Hall of Jammu Municipal Corporation.

 The meeting was attended by the members of the Executive Committee of JMC, Commissioner JMC, concerned officers of JMC working on these proposals and officers from smart city. Joint Commissioner (Revenue & Enforcement) presented a detailed plan envisaging a roadmap for implementation of these proposals on the ground so as to improve the City livelihood and remove the congestions from the Jammu City by way of removing encroachments from the different roads and to make roads / footpaths people friendly for smooth movement of vehicles and pedestrians. 

While discussing the city livelihood plan, the Mayor Jammu stressed on promoting different capable, energetic and efficient Self Help Groups to manufacture quality products preferably local products and their marketing on a wider range.

“First, these SHGs are to be registered as per the norms of Govt. of J&K UT. Various polytechnics and ITIs are to be taken into confidence to train these SHGs. More initiatives are to be taken so that maximum benefits under different schemes are provided to the beneficiaries,” he said.

“Possibilities shall be explored for ward-wise SHGs. We have to identify different trades for these SHGs. Moreover, initiatives are needed to be taken with the different banks within the Jammu city for fixing a day with specified time for these beneficiaries,” he added and said a marketing plan shall also be formed.

The Mayor also laid emphasis on identifying new skills such as CAD (Computer Editing Designing), mobile repairing etc. for enhancing the livelihood. He also emphasized on Liasoning of applicants, skill development agency, banking and marketing of the products for better implementation of livelihood schemes.

The Mayor also issued directions for exploring the ideas for making a group of women who can especially run the newly introduced e-Rickshaws. “This will be a great step towards women empowerment,” he added.

While discussing encroachment free city plan, the Mayor Jammu directed the concerned authorities to constitute an enforcement wing of JMC with dedicated and qualified staff to remove the encroachments from the city footpaths and roads after healthy discussions & coordination with the Market Associations.

“The teams shall motivate the Market Associations to  remove the encroachments from the footpaths and roads on their own and keep their goods within their shutter lines. Rehri vendors are also to be motivated by these teams to keep their rehries at the sites identified by the JMC so that traffic congestions may not occur,” the Mayor directed. 

The concerned Authorities were asked to make a foolproof mechanism for removing encroachments from all the 61 water bodies within the JMC limits. A strict compliance is required for removing encroachments. To remove encroachments, JMC will soon form a police squad, he said.

In the end, the Mayor directed the concerned authorities to make a vision document for both these proposals so that JMC can provide better services to the general public of Jammu at large.
