An official letter from the office of Executive Engineer PWD (R&B) dated 9th October, addressed to Deputy Commissioner Dimapur and a copy of which was given to the JAC for information and co-operation, stated that the works would commence starting from October 20 and would be executed by the department using a new German technology.
