Guwahati, Dec 4 (PTI) Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday directed officials for the revival of Assam State Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (ASIDCL) so that it can contribute towards the development of the state.The ASIDCL was formed in 2016 for the capacity enhancement of Public Works Department (PWD), but it could not live up to its mandate, an official statement said.With the PWD taking up several flagship schemes for building and revamping the state roads, the revival of ASIDCL as a catalyst for development has become pertinent.
