Reportedly, as many as 40 jacks have been used and the work is underway. The estimated time of the lifting is one month. The work started on November 22 in which four technically skilled workers from Haryana and Kurukshetra are working daily.

The work has been assigned to a private company at a price of Rs 2 lakh while a total of Rs 7 lakh is estimated to be spent for the whole renovation work.
