“There is hardly any time left, we all will have to work overtime to honor deadlines. It will be in the fitness of things if these projects are completed by March-2010,” Dikshit stated.

The chief minister underlined the importance of quality construction. PWD Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan, senior government officials and representatives of various constructions companies were present at the meeting.

“It was decided that hindrances, if any will be resolved at the highest level. The contractors have been told to submit a detailed schedule of key indicators. Further they have been asked to submit daily progress reports,” said an official statement.
