An effective communication network is essential not only to cater to the needs of travel and transport but also for Socio-economic development of a State and the country. In case of J&K, the same is all the more important for promotion of tourism as well. Revival of Tourism and restoration of damaged infrastructure, which had become the target during the period of disturbance in the State has been a priority of the State Government.
The State Government, with the supplementation of Central resources, made concerted efforts in rebuilding of destroyed infrastructure in the shape of roads, bridges, school buildings and the social infrastructure, etc. With this objective in view, special schemes were launched, besides giving a boost to the ongoing schemes of the Department.
