Tourists flocked to Sgr, packing hotels to capacity; 400 services are now available online thanks to PSGA; additional regions will soon have access to improved hotel infrastructure; There will be 93,000 finished development projects in 2018; The G-20 summit is the subject of widespread media coverage.

Srinagar, July 08 (KNO): Abolishing the practise would have been a severe hit to the state’s coffers, but Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha of Jammu and Kashmir claimed on Saturday that he made the decision to do so shortly after assuming office on August 7, 2020, and that almost all important government services are now available in “online mode.”

The Darbar relocation, which had been in effect for nearly a decade, finally came to an end in May 2021, when government offices relocated back to Srinagar. According to the Kashmir News Observer (KNO), he made this statement while speaking at the BHU Urology Update and Alumni Meet hosted by SKIMS, Srinagar, at the SKICC here. 270 trucks were reportedly used to transport files from Srinagar to Jammu and back. Darbar Move, he added, required the annual rental of 1,000 rooms in Srinagar and 800 rooms in Jammu to house officers and employees.


According to the LG, the PSGA now has over 400 online government services available. All services have been set to automatically escalate. Officials have 15 days to provide a birth certificate or face disciplinary action, which might include a fine, according to this man.
LG Sinha said that he receives calls nearly daily from visitors inquiring about hotel rooms in Srinagar. He predicted that the already high number of 1.88 billion visitors to Jammu and Kashmir from the previous year would rise much higher this year. In addition to the UT’s resort areas, “the hotel infrastructure will come up at district level as well.”

He said that although the previous government only managed to finish 9,000 development projects each year up to 2020, the current one is on track to finish 93,000. “The funding cost is almost the same, and there is not a major difference,” the LG said.
The LG said that although similar meetings were conducted in other regions of the country, the G-20 Tourism Working Group conference in Srinagar from May 22–25 was the subject of widespread international interest. He remarked, “The successful G-20 meet in Srinagar was not possible without the support of locals.” (KNO)
