Up gradation of Awareness Raising Material

The General Manger (TM) has desired to up grade the awareness raising material which has already been prepared by PIDA and Social & Environmental Management Unit. The purpose to up grade the awareness raising material is to keep it more relevant with the needs of stakeholders. The GM (TM) has instructed all the concerned officers to prepare their suggestions individually in the light of their experiences while implementing the projects. The said material will also be available on PIDA website.
