Lack of mobile connectivity, ATM in two famous tourist spots in Budgam annoy tourists




BUDGAM – Lack of mobile connectivity and ATM services at two famous tourist resorts – Yousmarg and Doodhpatri in Budgam district of central Kashmir has left visiting tourists disappointed

Locals said that the two places, Yousmarg and Doodpathri, have no mobile connectivity or ATM, which causes huge difficulties for those visiting these places.

Residents of Yousmarg blamed the government for not being able to provide the facilities such as good network coverage and ATMs. They said tourists always feel annoyed here as they complain about telecommunication issues and lack of other facilities, especially ATMs.

“If tourists here need money, they have to travel 15 km to use the ATM,” said a resident of Yousmarg.

Pony wallas, restaurateurs and traders in these scenic spots told KNO they face problems even when Kashmir is experiencing a good flow of tourists.

“The government is unable to develop these places and provide the facilities such as good network coverage, ATMs and adventurous sports facilities. Instead, a heavy toll is charged on taxis and cars carrying tourists,” they said.

Residents of the Doodpathri area said the lack of basic facilities disappointed tourists.

Residents and tourists have appealed to the administration to look into the matter and ensure that mobile connectivity and ATM facilities are available at these locations. — (NO)
