Champawat Tehsil Office to change – Champawat Tehsil Office to change

listen to the news

Champawat. The office of Champawat tehsil, one of the oldest tehsils in Uttarakhand, will be shifted to another place. This situation is not due to lack of space or defect in the building but to the obstruction in the work of the new Tehsil office building. The matter of the new Tehsil building is under arbitration after the dispute. The Rajbunga (Fort) complex housing the Tehsil office since 150 years will be developed as a heritage site from the point of view of tourism. The Chief Minister had announced nine days ago to preserve Rajbunga as a heritage site.
Besides the Tehsil office of Champawat established in 1872 AD, the building of SDM, Sub Treasury, Land Registry Office is located in the Rajbunga campus. In 2015, the tourism department took the initiative to preserve Rajbunga in its original form. Before starting the work at Rajbunga, the Tehsil and other offices located in this complex had to be shifted to another place. Construction of the new office building began six years ago on 28 drainage plots at KMVN’s gated Rosin factory complex, but was halted due to substandard addition to the building’s inclined beams in construction on wet ground.
Not only has the work been stalled since 2018, the Rs 1.51 crore spent so far on construction is also in danger of being wasted. Following the investigation report of CBRI Roorkee, the tender of the company that got the work has been thrown out. The matter is now in arbitration.
Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami, during his visit to Champawat, had announced on July 13 that he would develop Rajbunga Fort from the tourism point of view. District Tourism Development Officer Arvind Gaur says that after this announcement by the CM, the Tehsil office will have to be shifted to another place to beautify Rajbunga. For this reason, the district administration is now studying the possibility of taking it to the unused government building.
After the earlier proposal of the Asian Development Bank was withdrawn, the state government will now give money to develop it. After preparing the DPR, it will be sent for approval. The Tehsil office will be shifted to another place to start the heritage work of Rajbunga. The unusable government building will be seen until the permanent Tehsil office building is fixed. -Narendra Singh Bhandari, DM, Champawat.
Rajbunga was to be preserved with the help of ABD in 2014
Champawat. The tourism department, with the help of the Asian Development Bank, had taken a decision in 2014 to fund Rajbunga with Rs 15 crore. Apart from making Rajbunga its historicity by bringing it back to its old look, a museum, a gallery of Himalayan art, an information centre, a study hall etc. were to be built. Apart from the beautification, a multi-storey car park and an auditorium were to be built. But this work could not be started due to lack of arrangement for the relocation of the offices located in Rajbunga. The ADB segment left the project in 2020.
