During 1960's the Building constructed for the C.D. Blocks were inherited by the Rural Development Department. The Block Buildings which were constructed during that time are now in dilapidated conditions. These buildings are almost running more than 50 years old and as such, these outlived buildings are now threatened either to be condemned and take away by the land owners as the land now occupied by the Block Offices were all donated free of costs on the condition that any contract works if arises, would be awarded to the land owners. It is observed that if these problems are not addressed at the earliest, it is likely to cause an enormous loss to the Department.
With greater focus being given for the rural areas and its population and to facilitate more effective and meaningful implementation of various poverty alleviation/ employment generation programme, 22 new Blocks were created by the State Govt. during 2011-12 making total number of Blocks to 74 in the State. However, due to paucity of funds, permanent Block Offices as well as residential buildings for the Officers and staff could not be constructed till date. The requirement of Office buildings and Staff quarters particularly in the newly created Blocks becomes more pressing need for the welfare services of the employees as well as the villagers.
Almost all the Department's residential buildings in the State Headquarter have almost outlived their life span and are in dilapidated condition which requires immediate renovation. In addition, it is also to be mentioned that majority of the Officers and Staffs in the Directorate have not been allotted accommodation due to shortage of Department Quarters.
