Committee formed to refurbish Yatri Nivas at Radhakund

Today is Ninthoapa (Monday)


In a meeting of the engineers held in Kolkata on July 2 to refurbish the condition of the Yatri Nivas at Radhakund, it was decided that a Technical Sub Committee under the guidance of Dr Ashoke Kumar Sinha, Civil Engineer, will be formed. The Technical Sub Committee will visit Radhakund and prepare a preliminary report on the condition of the accommodations including the boundary wall as well as the strengthening of the south wall of Nat-Mandir (Malthep).

Due to paucity of fund the maintenance work of old accommodations was not done during the last 30 years and as a result the buildings are in a state of dilapidated condition.

Engineers also had consultation on the three-story building which is coming up next to the Mandir. The Mandir is facing scores of problems from the non availability of fund to the unavailability of the lay-out design.

The meeting was attended by Kajal Kanti Sinha (Civil Engineer), Braja Kishore Sinha (Civil Engineer), Dr Ashoke Kumar Sinha (Civil Engineer), Rebati Mohan Sinha (Naval Architect) and Bishwajit Sinha (Electrical Engineer).

The President of the Yatri Nivas Construction Committee of the Sri Sri Radha Madhavjiu Mandir thanked the engineers on devoting their precious time to the welfare of the society.
