Joshimath (Uttarakhand): Cracks have formed in at least 570 dwellings in Uttarakhand’s Joshimath due to ongoing ground subsidence. Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami will travel to the city soon to take inventory while receiving professional assessments and preparing a strategy.
1. Over 60 households are said to have departed the city following ground sinking, which appears to be due to local weather and infrastructure changes. On Wednesday, the government relocated 29 homes to safer sites, according to officials. Nearly 500 families are either risking their lives by remaining in their houses or seeking shelter in other sites amid the bitter cold.
2.According to the mayor, more than 3,000 people are affected. That equates to more than 10% of the population. “The municipality is surveying all of the houses. “A lot of individuals have also abandoned their houses,” he said.
3.Teams from IIT Roorkee are among the professionals on the ground preparing a report that will most likely be sent to the Chief Minister, since highways have also developed fractures. The problem has spread to all nine wards of the Himalayan city, which has significant spiritual and geopolitical significance.
4. Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami added, “I would be visiting Joshimath in the coming days and begin actions to resolve the problem. All reports will be watched, and all necessary actions will be taken. I spoke with Municipal Corporation Chairman Shailendra Pawar.”

6. “We have been requesting quick rehabilitation for a year, but we have not been heard,” said Atul Sati, chairperson of the Save Joshimath Committee. “Joshimath’s foundation is collapsing… People are using bamboo poles to support their homes and rags to conceal the chinks. The state government, on the other hand, is unconcerned.”
7. In the earthquake-prone location, the Disaster Management Department has documented incidents of water seepage from beneath the floor. The District Magistrate of Chamoli has dispatched Joint Magistrate Deepak Saini to Joshimath to monitor the situation and coordinate immediate assistance.
8. Among those impacted is Madhavi Sati, a former municipal leader whose home has significant fractures. “I have no choice but to live in a wrecked house,” she explained. She claimed that the DM of Chamoli also visited the realm, but no resolution has been made as of yet.
9. A delegation from the city can also travel to Dehradun, the state capital, which is around 300 kilometres distant, to meet with the Chief Minister. They will demand compensation for anyone harmed by the subsidence.
10. The city is regarded as the starting point for a lot of Himalayan climbing adventures. These represent the journey to the pilgrimage site of Badrinath and the Valley of Flowers.
11. It is one of Hinduism’s many cardinal establishments and is home to the Jyotirmath Hindu monastery. A cantonment located here is one of the several army posts closest to the Chinese border.
