Dehradun (Uttarakhand): Chamoli District Magistrate Himanshu Khurana on Saturday said that there is no subsidence in the entire area of Joshimath but there is a part of the city where there are cracks which is not big.

Khurana said, “There is no subsidence in the entire area of Joshimath, there is a part of the city where there are cracks but it is not big. There is a special place where cracks have increased.” He further said that the reasons are being ascertained by the scientists.

The District Magistrate said that there is no earthquake in the entire Joshimath, that is why we are able to resettle the people in Joshimath itself.

“The work of shifting the affected people to safer places is being done at a fast pace. At present people will be shifted by acquiring safe hotels inside Joshimath.”

He said that land is being searched for a big shelter home.

“In Joshimath itself, the land of the Horticulture Department has also been searched for the construction of the shelter,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Uttarakhand government sanctioned funds from the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund for providing houses at cheaper rates to the displaced families due to the landslide in Joshimath.

As per the instructions of Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami, houses will be provided at the rate of Rs 4000 per month for six months.

The affected families, whose houses are not fit for habitation due to damage to their houses or those families who have become homeless are being given shelter in rented houses at safe places, under the Joshimath municipality tehsil of Chamoli district.
