The position stated in Para 3 thereof would show that out of total 76 posts sanctioned in Sub-Division Marwah (i.e. Three Tehsils Marwah, Warwan & Dachhan), 40 posts are lying vacant. DB further observed that the report also discloses lack of internet facility in the region and it is stated by the respondent No.3 that it is difficult to operate from headquarters Marwah for this reason. DB further observe dthat there total is lack of communication due to nonavailability of telecommunication/internet facilities which makes hindrance in the efficient management, control and strict surveillance of Sub-Ordinate Staff and the area is the hard zone of the District and remains cut-off from rest of the District for at least 6-7 months due to heavy snowfall as road connectivity is seasonal. The Teshil Dachhan and area of Tehsil Marwah (partially) are still without road connectivity due to which the better supervision is still for behind than rest of the District."
