Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 5: A Division Bench of Jammu & Kashmir High Court Comprising Chief Justice Pankaj Mithal and Justice Wasim Sadiq Nargal Chief Engineer to lay down the maximum limit of such vessels/boats that can be plied and used in a particular lake especially in the Dal Lake.
This significant order has been passed in a petition filed by petitioner who has applied for grant of licence to ply Jet-Ski, Paddle Boats, Water Ball and Water Boat in the Nehru Park area of the Dal Lake, Srinagar. The grievance of the petitioner is that his application for grant of above licence has not been considered by the respondents.
DB observed that under the J&K Water Resources (Regulation and Management) Act, 2010 and the Rules, the Chief Engineer, Irrigation and Flood Control Department, is the licensing authority to grant permission to ply a boat or vessel in any water course in the State including Lakes and Ponds.
DB is of the the opinion that the Chief Engineer has to first of all on principle lay down the maximum limit of such vessels/boats that can be plied and used in a particular lake especially in the Dal Lake and thereafter, if necessary, to consider the application of the petitioner for grant of licence in accordance with the law and the necessary guidelines depending upon the ecology and other ancillary things in connection thereto without violating the order of the High Court or any other Court.
