The Jammu and Kashmir administration has approved the second phase of a comprehensive plan for flood management work on the Jhelum river at a cost of over 5,400 crore rupees. 

An official spokesman today said, the State Administrative Council, which met in Srinagar under the chairmanship of Governor Satya Pal Malik last evening, accorded in-principle approval to the Comprehensive Plan. 

He said, the project is proposed to be implemented part-wise with Part A amounting to 1,684 crore rupees approved under Prime Minister's Development Package and the Part B for which source of funding is to be identified. The project has been formulated to achieve short-term goal of mitigating the flood threat at Sangam in Anantnag district.

The spokesman said, a multi-pronged strategy was adopted for flood mitigation in Kashmir Valley following the devastating floods of September 2014 and on the recommendations of a high-level committee, constituted by the Centre. He said, to enhance carrying capacity of the river Jhelum from the then 31,000 cusecs to 60,000 cusecs, action was envisaged in two phases.
