Gilgit: Machinery worth 680 million rupees was handed over to the Gilgit-Baltistan Disaster Management Authority (GBDMA) today. An excavator, three bulldozers and 22 tractors were received and handed over to the GBMA today after inspection.

A team of Pakistan Army’s Engineering Corps inspected the machines purchased.

The Gilgit-Baltistan region has been faced with many hydro-meteorological hazards. Road blocks, landslides and boulder falls are routine in the mountainous valleys.

The new machinery will equip the GBDMA better to help the communities during future disasters.
