On the occasion of Darbar move to the winter capital, Jammu ,the City of Temples is receiving a major facelift to welcome ‘Darbaris’ and major thrust this year is on renovation of Civil Secretariat. The reopening of State Government offices in the Civil Secretariat and other administrative complexes will take place in the first week of November 2018. The final arrangements and renovation is underway and it is soon to be completed before the Darbar move to its winter capital.
The main city junctions are also getting a fresh layer of paint while roads have been freshly carpeted to ensure smooth ride for Government officials and their assistants.
In the absence of Government, people of Jammu are expecting that Darbar move will prove as a thrust for the reconstruction of roads in their region that are in bad physical conditions.
The bi-annual Darbar move offices are scheduled to close in Srinagar on October 26 and reopen on November 5 in winter capital.
Governor of Jammu, Mr Satya Pal Malik will be visiting for the first time to the winter capital after Darbar move since the Governor rule was imposed in J&k on June 20 after BJP pulled out of its Government from its alliance partner PDP.
On their arrival in Jammu this year, the Darbaris will feel special while passing through the main road linking Tawi bridge with the old city.
The pillars below the Bikram Chowk flyover have been painted with different paintings depicting rich cultural heritage of all the three regions of the State. Even the walls near Civil Secretariat Complex are getting a face lift by depicting cultural heritage of Dogra rulers.
