Tourism players demand amendment in Tourism Trade Act
Present Act a toothless tiger: TASK
Srinagar, July 14: The Valley-based tourism bodies today demanded amendments in the Tourist Trade Act.
The tourism players at an awareness programme on tourism here today said the present Act should be amended to incorporate some “stringent laws” to deter offenders and help improve infrastructure.
Terming the present Tourist Trade Act as ‘toothless tiger”, President TASK Abdul Khaliq Wangnoo stressed the need for constitution of a task force to curb the menace of “sale of outside products under Kashmir label.”
Khaliq said the present Act was weak. “The Act is one sided and has failed to curb the menace of corruption. Government should amend this Act with due consultation of all stakeholders,” he said.
He urged the Tourism Department for improving the infrastructure at new tourist destinations. “The roads leading to new tourist destinations are in a bad condition. We need to have a good basic infrastructure for the tourists,” Wangnoo said.
