The plot owners of new Doksum town in Trashiyangtse are running out of time to construct houses that the Kholungchhu Hydroelectric Project Authority (KHPA) would require for its employees and workers.

The plot owners have just about a week to decide to begin construction.

Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay met with the residents on March 19 and said that not everything can be done by the government. Land, design, wood and water were given free.

However, plot owners are not happy with the house designs provided by the KHPA.

With the integrated housing colony at Khetsang town, KHPA will rent 200 housing units during its construction phase.

KHPA officials presented the project and work plans to Lyonchoen Tshering Tobgay. The officials also highlight edcorporate social responsibility initiatives undertaken on  health, community vitality, the environment, organisation of social events, education, farm road connectivity and water supply at the Doksum township area.

There are 40 commercial and 150 residential plots in the new town area. The town development works began in 2013 to relocate the existing Doksum town.
