JandK govt starts beautification of Shalimar-Dal Lake water channel

The Jammu and Kashmir administration has taken the responsibility to beautify the Shalimar-Dal Lake water channel which was in pathetic condition from past few years. The poor condition arose as all the waste materials including deadly polythene were thrown into the channel. Lakes and Waterways Development Authority (LAWDA) is on a full-fledged mission to renovate and beautify one of the oldest water channels which connects Shalimar garden to Dal Lake. Shalimar channel was once used to flush out the overflowing water from the garden and also a shortcut route for Mughal rulers to enter the world famous Dal Lake by Shikara. The renovation comes as a big relief for the local business as it is likely to fuel tourism and business opportunities.
