Srinagar, May 1: The restriction on civilian movement between Srinagar and Baramulla on NH-44 would be completely lifted from tomorrow (Thursday) said a government spokesman.
“There would be no prohibition now on civilian traffic between Srinagar and Baramulla,” he said.
However, the restrictions would continue between Srinagar and Udhampur on NH-44 as earlier. “These (restrictions) would be reviewed periodically and relaxation would be made as the need for restriction reduces,” said the spokesman.
“Even on the days of restrictions, i.e. Sunday and Wednesday between Srinagar and Udhampur and on Sunday between Baramulla and Srinagar, the local administration would continue to facilitate movement of civilian traffic as has been happening in the last two weeks.”
Further, the local administration and police would examine the possibility of allowing public transport of JKSRTC to move during the period of restriction on the NH even on convoy days.
