Pampanur (Anantapur): Funds crunch and the government's failure in releasing funds for the Integrated Eco Park has stalled works apart from inconveniencing the contractors who are yet to be paid bills for the Rs. two crore ambitious project by the forest department at Pampanur village.

Temporarily works remained stalled in the mid-way of the project for which the local people are awaiting to enjoy the scenic beauty of the park and to take a break from the mundane. The tourism project which was supposed to be completed by the end of March 2017 did not materialise due to non-release of the budget by the state government.
