Af­ter eight years the gov­ern­ment has fi­nally de­cided to take up re­pair work at the Lud­hi­ana cir­cuit house.

The Public Works Depart­ment (PWD) has sanc­tioned a sum of Rs 40 lakh for the re­pair of the cir­cuit house. The re­pairs that started three days ago and ex­pected to be com­plete in a month.

Lud­hi­ana cir­cuit house is one of the busiest places in the state, be­ing an in­dus­trial city it is fre­quented by min­is­ters and gov­ern­ment of­fi­cers.

Over the past few years the con­di­tion of the cir­cuit house had de­te­ri­o­rated due to the in­dif­fer­ent at­ti­tude of the gov­ern­ment; it was last re­paired


in 2003.

Su­per­vi­sor RL Cho­pra of the cir­cuit house said, “Dur­ing the ren­o­va­tion work, floor­ing of ground floor and min­is­ter suite will be re­done. The en­tire build­ing will be re- painted and the fur­ni­ture will also be re­paired.”

Keep­ing in view the sum­mers, 14 new air con­di­tion­ers will also be in­stalled at the Lud­hi­ana cir­cuit house.

A new sound sys­tem will be in­stalled at the meet­ing hall. Leak­ages in var­i­ous places will be fixed, while new park­ing lights will be in­stalled in the park­ing area.

The PWD has given an es­ti­mate of 1 month for the en­tire work. Mean­while all the guests will be ac­com­mo­dated in other gov­ern­ment guest­houses of the city.

Deputy com­mis­sioner Rahul Ti­wari said, “Un­til the ren­o­va­tion work is over, guests will be ac­com­mo­dated in other gov­ern­ment guest­houses such as, Pun­jab State Power Cor­po­ra­tion guest­house, For­est depart­ment’s guest­house, sew­er­age depart­ment and Sainik wel­fare board’s guest­house.”
