Highway closure will ruin Kashmir economy: KCCI


The Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI), Thursday, said that the closing down of highway for two days every week would have disastrous consequences on the economy of Jammu and Kashmir.

“The closure of the only available road link (Srinagar-Jammu highway) would put the whole population to unimaginable inconvenience and will have disastrous consequences for our economy,” the traders’ body said in a statement.

KCCI said that access to Kashmir is limited as the land does not have a rail link, nor any means of water transport.

“Air travel, due to the wrong policies of the Civil Aviation Ministry, is out of bounds because of high fares and heavy movement of security forces from the civilian airport,” it said, while urging the authorities to revoke the order immediately.
