Public Works Department is responsible for construction and maintenance of Government buildings. While it has its own budget for construction and maintenance of buildings, it also undertakes construction on behalf of other departments under the Deposit Contribution Works.

Broadly, buildings under PWD fall under two categories viz., institutional / commercial buildings and residential buildings. The first category covers office buildings, commercial complexes, colleges, hospitals, libraries, etc. Residential buildings include quarters and hostels.

While minor works are undertaken under the budget heads 2059 and 2216, major works are undertaken under the budget heads 4059 and 4216. In addition, there are building programmes under the budget heads of other Governmental Departments, for which budget provision is made under the respective budget heads.

PWD undertakes two kinds of repairs for maintenance of buildings, viz., ordinary repairs and special repairs. Ordinary repairs are carried out annually and include activities like white washing, colour washing, repairs of patches, replacement of small broken parts, painting of doors, etc. Special repairs are less frequent and include repairs to the damaged portions of the building, floors, doors and windows and replacement of water supply and sanitary fittings.
