880 flats constructed in last 3 years for Kashmiri migrant employees: Govt

Srinagar, Aug 02: A total of 880 flats have been constructed in the valley in the last three years for Kashmiri migrant employees who wish to return home, Union Minister Nityanand Rai informed Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.

 

In a written reply to a question, Rai, as per the news agency, said that 5,248 two-room tenements were constructed in the Purkhu, Muthi, Nagrota and Jagti areas of the Jammu region to accommodate the “people who had migrated due to terrorism in 1989-1990 from their ancestral places of residence in Kashmir”.

 

“These tenements were constructed in two phases till 2011,” he said, adding that no new tenements for the above purpose have been built in the last three years.

 

“However, due to improved security scenario in the Kashmir Valley, the government has taken up the project of construction of 6,000 transit accommodations for the Kashmiri migrant employees returning to the valley,” the Union Minister said, adding that 880 flats have been constructed in the last three years.
