"We face tough times when we have to deposit admission fee", said Mehrajuddin a student of GDC Baramulla.
Tourists who travel to world famous tourist destination Gulmarg via Kalantara route also face inconvenience. "Visitors face hardships due to the absence of any banking facilities in the area", said Umar Majeed Wani, a tourist guide.
