Binod Sesan, project director, Assam Urban Infrastructure Investment Programme reviewed the progress of the project.
Pallav Gopal Jha, deputy commissioner, Dibrugarh Municipal Corporation, said,“”We are sure that the solid waste management plant will solve the decade old problem of garbage disposal in Dibrugarh. In 210 bigha plot of land the solid waste management plant will be set up.”

Garbage dumped at Maijan road in Dibrugarh which was creating problem for the local residents from the past few years.
