IWT issue

This refers to article in Greater Kashmir on Inland Water Transport by Er M.A.Fazili. The author has made his arguments on sound technical basis. The proposal for Inland Water Transport for city of Srinagar with the scope of its future extension to valley from Khanabal to Khadanyar is accumulating dust for last four decades and not eleven years as the revered author has put it. In fact the proposal was framed as back as 1973-74 by Irrigation and Flood control Deptt. The experts of Hydraulic Engineering Wing were associated with this project. In fact the project report was framed by the Hydraulic wing of Regional Engineering College(present NIT) in association with Engineers of the State. Recci and field observations were recorded during field trips in the motorised boats and project report submitted to the Govt for approval
