According to a circular, it has been observed the some tourists and visitors are installing temporary tents on green meadow, hill stock for night stay at Gulmarg without any proper permission from the competent authority.

The circular reads that this unlawful act has resulted in destruction of greens and accumulation of excess waste and puts tremendous pressure on the manpower causing inconvenience to the tourists, which has been viewed seriously by the authorities, and is against the provisions of Development Act 1970.

“Permission for installation of temporary tents in the jurisdiction of Gulmarg is subject to the various dos and don’t which shall be conveyed in the permission letter only.
