All the welfare schemes of the Central Government were implemented properly. The Council under his able guidance has achieved many heights some of which are reflected below:-

Under the JAL SHAKTI ABHIYAN Scheme the Port Blair Municipal Council was nominated for the 2nd National Water Awards. Restoration of all the Japanese Wells was a major work. “Intensive Afforestation Drive” led by him was also a major step. Installation of Water ATM’s at various location of the Municipal Council was also a major achievement. The works taken under AMRUT (Centrally Sponsored Scheme) is a major achievement which was also accomplished in the stipulated time frame. Introduction and distribution of twin bin system to all the household and commercial establishment and introduction of door to door collection of waste from every household is also a noteworthy achievement. Further one of the notable achievements that the Port Blair Municipal Council has achieved the status of ODF in the year 2017. Since then as on date the Port Blair City has the status of ODF+.Under the Smart City project, the PBMC had installed LED Street lights in collabration with M/s EESL in the entire Municipal area. Various other projects under Smart city viz construction of Marine Esplanade, Integrated Command and Control Center (ICCC), has been approved and commencement of work will be taken up shortly.
