|After completing the parapet wall of Flag bastion Pratapgad Jirnodhar Samitee Trust built new pedestal for flag post and erected new flag post with flag.
After this a major work of removing trees and debris from the Afzal Machi and rampart wall is taken in hand. The loose stone that may collapse at any time are being removed from the top of the wall.
Enormous quantity of stones and soil are lying on the Machi. The fanzi (path for patrolling) is covered with debris of about 2 feet depth. After removing the debris, the stone pathway, the steps on it, tanks for water storage are revealed. Stones and soil from debris are being stocked separately. Soil is to be used for gardens and plantation and stones will be used in the construction.
The surface between the rampart walls is also covered with large amount of debris. This debris is to be removed after cleaning the fanzi.

The most important work to be done is to build the broken part of armour wall of flag bastion which collapsed before five years.
Firstly the debris which is about 7 feet wide, 10 feet deep and 120 feet long is being removed. This debris is in between the flag bastion and its armour wall.
There is very less space available to work in this part. So the debris removed in being stocked on the machi. Many important parts of the armour wall such as the flooring, the steps and toilets built in it are now coming in light. Also the channels for draining water out are being found. After removing all the debris the actual construction of broken part is to be taken over.
