Stay on boating services from Fatehsagar to Nehru Garden has been removed by the High Court.
Disputes among boat contractors had resulted in the High Court putting up a stay on the boating services to Nehru Garden at Fatehsagar. It has been over 11 months that the boating services to the island garden has ceased. With the High Court removing the stay, the PWD has begun the tender process for contractors to ply boats in Fatehsagar. The stay on boating access to Nehru Garden had also resulted in lower tourist density at Fatehsagar.
Prior to the stay, which ceased operations since January this year, there was an average 500 visits to the island garden. This average used to triple during the tourist season.
