As per a resolution taken during its joint meeting held at Kohima on June 22, 2022, Nagaland Foothill Road Co-ordination Committee (NFHRCC) has reminded PWD (R&B) to release running bills based on performance to contractors to complete their work on time as in some sectors 90% of the allocated work had been completed.
This was resolved at a committee’s meeting held here on Saturday.
Further, the meeting also requested PWD (R&B) for a joint inspection of Baghty division at the earliest in consonance with the June 22, 2022 meeting resolution.
