He directed them to have Administrative Approval, Technical Sanction, DPRs, Geo Tagging and other formalities already done by the submitting departments.

Dr. Mehta directed the officers to look into the underlying reasons for requests for dropping some projects from JKIDFC domain. He asked for making the preparations for re-submitting them in future HPCs.
