During a comprehensive review of IWMP implementation, Dr Choudhary emphasized the need for long-lasting infrastructure, particularly strengthening irrigation canals and water harvesting structures. He recognized the urgency of the program in the Kandi belts and pledged to seek approval for additional projects from the GoI.

Dr Shahid emphasized the historical importance of traditional water bodies in Jammu and Kashmir, urging concerted efforts towards their renewal. He highlighted the region's abundance of centuries-old water bodies, emphasizing the need for proactive measures to restore them, particularly those associated with religious and tourist destinations.
