We recall how, due to a pragmatic approach and the search for unconventional ways of arranging funds to revive hundreds of such projects in Jammu and Kashmir, work on which, although started with much hype media, were quickly stopped for lack of funds and the required follow-up at the top. Amazingly, the number of such abandoned projects was an impressive number of 6000. The former state government for this purpose had established a new infrastructure company known as Jammu and Kashmir Infrastructure Development Finance Corporation (JKIDFC) and Rs.8000 crore were mandated. to be arranged through it for the financing of these blocked projects. These stalled projects were nobody’s concern all the previous years until 2018, although a lot of public funds had already been spent on them initially and since they weren’t finished or used, so they were all considered as wasted. With the active support of funds provided by JKIDFC, hundreds of languid 10-20 year old projects have been revived, restarted with new rising costs and more than 1200 of them have also been completed. However, the funds for all 6000 projects obviously could not be arranged at once or work on them properly because the arrangement of funds mainly from banks and other financial institutions by JKIDFC is a process that takes a bit of time. time, especially when it comes to arranging massive funds. Not only are these projects languishing in good numbers, but they are also in different segments, such as bridges, water supply, education, power supply, roads, drainage, irrigation, agriculture, health, etc have been approved, restarted, completed and “delivered”, a backlog continues to be supported for the completion of remaining work on these. So there are almost 1000 of these projects which, although approved for restarting of works, have still undergone the same process of stopping works due to lack of funds rather than non-availability because the limits of funds laid down for them in the banks had been fully utilized or exhausted. Since all the projects classified as languishing had been initially approved probably without an assured funding base, in addition to arranging the same from government financial resources also being difficult if not entirely out of the question, setting up of the JKIDFC, although resulting in the rescue the position, but the problem of funds no doubt with it is not very difficult to organize according to the mandate of the Society, the problem causes the avoidable delays in the completion of these projects . What is needed is for the flow and pace of funds to match the pace of work so that contractors have no problem meeting their debt obligations. What one feels is that the situation of satisfactory flow of funds for the first year or immediately after did not continue and continued smoothly, obviously due to the mismatch in the number of projects approved and funds managed. No project under this category can be categorized as more important in nature and utility or lesser conversely, thus requiring a smooth flow of funds. In this regard, we understand that the company has recently decided to raise a loan of Rs.2000 crore for funding the languishing projects and such limit is to be utilized during the remaining months of the current financial year ending March 2022. In this connection, inviting for so-called Expressions of Interest (EOI) and related formalities are expected to be completed shortly. It is therefore to be hoped that once this credit limit is sanctioned by the designated financial institutions in favor of the Company and subsequently released, the projects which are currently under financial pressure and the works affected therein will again be launched to be completed.
