Srinagar: Traders of Downtown areas here have appealed authorities to augment basic facilities in the Old City.

The traders under the banner of Shaher-e-Khaas Traders Coordination Committee.

“We have been running pillar to post for setting up parking facilities in Downtown areas. Due to lack of parking, our business has been affected. Downtown is a historic place in Srinagar but sans basic facilities,” said Nazir Ahmad Shah, chairman of Shaher-e-Khaas Traders Coordination Committee.

Shah said parking facilities is needed in congested areas like Zaina Kadal, Maharaj Gunj and Bohri Kadal areas. “Around a decade ago, we had identified land for parking but authorities did not process the case. We urge DC Srinagar to look into the matter,” he said.
