CPWD is a central government possessed authority in charge of public sector works. The CPWD, under the department of urban development, builds and maintains public buildings. Central Public Works Department came into being in July 1854 when Lord Dalhousie founded a central agency for execution of public works and set up in Ajmer Provincial Division. It has now grown-up into a wide-ranging construction management department, which offers services from project concept to completion, and maintenance management.
It is controlled by the Director General who is also the Principal of Technical Advisor to the Government of India. The incumbent Director General is Mr. Divakar Garg. The regions and sub-regions are ruled by Special Director General’s and Additional Director General’s correspondingly, while the zones in all state capitals (except a few) are controlled by Chief Engineers.
With country wide presence, the strength of Central Public Works Department is its ability to embark on construction of Complex Projects even in problematic terrains and maintenance in post construction stage.
