School principal Reena Sharma said Rs 57 lakh were  received in 2013 which was deposited in the accounts of public works department as it is agency to construct government building above Rs 50 lakhs .

 Executive engineer Balbir Singh had said in 2016 that the two story building will be completed within six months. He had said that the department has obtained bearing capacity certificate of land from Guru Nanak Engineering College Ludhiana as construction site was  a pond. He said that Jalandhar deputy commissioner had informed that he had received Rs 1.50 crore for the construction announced by chief minster during his Sangat Darshan here.
