After considering the recommendations of Districtadministration as well as suggestions/views expressed by the public as also thememoranda received by the Committee, following main issues emerged:-

  1. That a new Tehsil with its headquarter at Assar be created by includingvillages falling in Niabats Assar and Batote to be part of District Doda.
