Transport Department

Introduction

The Transport Section of JMC is generally considered as the backbone of our corporation. It has to play an important role in sanitation of areas within the JMC limits. It involves collection, transportation and safe disposal of garbage / refuse into landfall sites at Bhagwati nagar, Jammu.

The Garbage / refuse is disposed off after segregation of wastes into three kinds:-
a) Bio degradable.
b) Bio non- degradable.
c) Constructions wastes.

Besides this, the transport section also provide mechanical transport for lifting of dead animals/ stray Animals/ Dogs etc. within JMC limits for the convenience of general public which otherwise will create nuisance for the Public. Mobile toilet facility, drinking water facility is also provided by the transport section during seasonal functions, festivals like Eid, Dusshara , Navratra , Gurupurab etc. septic tank cleaning is also available for the convenience of general public .

The most important function of Transport section is de silting of Nullah & Deep drains falling with in JMC limits. The Nallahs and deep drains require regular and periodical de-silting specially before the onset of monsoon season so as to avoid any kind of mishappening and inconvenience to the General public. Some of the Nallahas and deep drains are very vulnerable and needs special attention otherwise there can cause major damage in the low lying areas of Jammu. In case of rains water overflow and enter into the houses of local residence.

The desilting of Nallahs and Deep drains has been a big problem in monsoon season and therefore requires special attention in the interest of general public.
