Multi-facility DYC coming up in heart of Anantnag; Centre to be equipped with high recreational facilities


ANANTNAG : A highly mechanized and modernly equipped District Youth Centre (DYC) is being established in the heart of Anantnag City at Old Taxi Stand Khanabal.

In this regard, District Development Commissioner (DDC) Anantnag, Dr. Piyush Singla chaired a core meeting with ADDC, CPO, ACR, Ex. Engineer JK Sports Council and other officers to review the measures being taken up for the establishment of the centre.

As a pro-youth initiative, this modernistic centre would be equipped with all the necessary facilities and its allotted portion has been reserved for many indoor games like table tennis, Badminton etc. The centre will be spacious enough to incorporate multi-valued and high recreational facilities ranging from Gym to indoor game courts besides ample parking area.

For educational purposes, the centre will host a reading room where the students and other interested persons will get a chance to go through various scriptures.

Coming at a cost of Rs. 3.5 Cr., the modernistic centre would be first of its kind in the district and it would provide opportunities to youth in sports, games and other constructive fields. Besides, it would also provide a viable and doorstep platform to youth of the district particularly those hailing from the main town to utilise their time in reading and learning and also interact with each other.

The land earmarked for the project has been allotted to JK Sports Council and directions have been issued to complete the project in a time bound manner.

The DDC has also visited the spot along with senior officers and site verification has been conducted by the revenue department in liaison with the central planning unit of the district.

The initiative is being looked upon as a welcome step to channelize energy and talent of youngsters in education, cultural and sports activities for ensuring their overall empowerment and welfare.
