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.
