b) Maintenance of PASSCO plaza according to internal safety standards.
c) Excellent maintenance to 35 years old godowns without a trace of water leakage from roof and walls.

Since PASSCO is having the shortage of covered storage (only 22 % of its total requirement) therefor the Works Wing in coordination with the higher management, is trying to achieve a breakthrough in the construction field. PC-1 for the same has been approved and hopefully the construction process will be started in the current year.
