One way traffic on NH-1A for four days ahead of Darbar move

Jammu, Apr 27 (PTI) As part of the biannual Darbar move, Jammu and Kashmir government offices will start functioning in the summer capital Srinagar from May 8, for which one-way traffic has been ordered on the NH-1A for four days in April and May.

The Jammu and Kashmir government has ordered one-way traffic for four days in April and May to ensure hassle-free movement of vehicles carrying Darbar move employees and official records from Jammu to Srinagar.

The seat of the Jammu and Kashmir government will be closed in the winter capital Jammu on April 28 and resume from the summer capital Srinagar on May 8.

Inspector General of Police(Traffic), Jagjit Kumar, said to ensure hassle-free movement of vehicles carrying Darbar move employees and important official records, only one-way movement of traffic on the highway from Jammu towards Srinagar shall be permitted on April 29 and 30.

He also said the one-way movement of traffic from Jammu towards Srinagar would also be in place on May 6 and 7.

Darbar move is a century-old practice started by then Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir who used to shift his capital between Srinagar, in the summer and Jammu in the winter to escape extreme weather conditions in these places.
