New market sheds constructed

The gewog has finally completed the construction of market sheds in the Kerabari channel which started about 2 months back. The installation was supposed to be held on the second week of this month but due to some development activities and lack of vegetables the inauguration of the market sheds was postponed to end of the month.

The two new sheds constructed for a budget of Nu 757,000 will be useful for 12 shopkeepers.

A seven kilometers Rural Water Supply Scheme (RWSS) has been completed from Ghalleygoan to Dungkhar with a budget of Nu 6.3mn.

Other development activities are still under construction like the ORC (Out Reach Clinic) and the Extended Class rooms (ECR)
