The revenue officials informed DDC that most of the locations for construction of bunkers have been handed over to R&B Department and process has been set in for making entries of these identified sites in revenue record.
DDC directed the concerned to identify and hand over locations for remaining bunkers within a week’s time so that construction work is taken up without any lapse of time keeping in view the importance of project for safeguarding the lives of those living in these areas.
