The Cabinet Wednesday gave nod to the construction of new Paediatric Hospital within the upcoming 200 bedded Maternity Hospital at Bemina at a cost of Rs 25 crore.
The decision was taken to facilitate the availability of Paediatric health care facilities alongside the maternity hospital within the same building premises.
COMMITTEE FOR CREATION OF POSTS
The Cabinet accorded sanction to the constitution of an Empowered Committee to approve the formal creation of posts for regularisation of leftover eligible DRWs (Daily Rated Workers) engaged prior to 31st January 1994.
The Empowered Committee comprises Commissioner Secretary Finance as Chairman and other members from the concerned department, Law Department, GAD and Director Codes who shall be the Member Secretary. The Committee shall give its approval after scrutiny of the proposals in terms of SRO 64 of 1994.
PRIVATE SECURITY AGENCIES
The Cabinet also gave nod to the draft Jammu and Kashmir Private Security Agencies (Regulation) Ordinance. The Ordinance aims at providing a legal framework for regulating the functioning of the private security agencies including their licensing, de-licensing etc.
“With the expansion of the economy a large number of private business enterprises have come up in the State which has increased the demand for security, resulting in proliferation of private security agencies,” reads the government press release issued in this regard.
“Although, these private security agencies have helped in meeting the security needs, yet their unregulated activities can have serious security implications, therefore there was a need to have a Law for regulating the functioning of these private security agencies.”
The Cabinet approved retrospective enhancement of salary of the Councillors of LAHDC Leh and Kargil from September 2009 and payment of arrears on account of this from September 2009 up to 13th February 2012.
83 POSTS IN HANDICRAFTS DEPT
The Cabinet also approved creation of 83 posts in the Handicrafts Department by corresponding reduction of equal number of posts.

The Cabinet also approved allotment of 80 Kanals of land in favour of Union Ministry of MSME for setting up of Technology Centre at Industrial Estate, Ghatti, Kathua on long term lease basis under the J&K Land Grants Act 1960.
