The Doner ministry of govt of India has sanctioned 11.45 crore for excavation and beautification of historic Jamuna lake of Sivasagar town. This is disclosed by Pranab Gogoi, speaker of Assam Assembly and local MLA at Sivasagar.

But due to the active rule of the Speaker of Assam Assembly and local MLA, Pranab Gogoi, the Doner minister Pawan Sing Ghatowar has sanctioned this multi crore scheme for Jamuna.

With this scheme the lake the excavation and free from illegal encroachment of Jamuna will be undertaken. Besides the running of machine boats from ASTC bus station to Shiva dol and decoration of this portion will be undertaken for tourist attraction.
