    Annexure - 1




    1. Background and Importance:The Jammu and Kashmir divisions of J&K state are separated by Pir Panjal Ranges and are

    presently connected by the circuitous Jammu-Srinagar National Highway No.1A (NH-1A).In

    order to provide a direct link between the districts of Poonch and Rajouri in Jammu Division with

    Kashmir valley, a pressing need was felt to construct a road in the missing link between Bafliaz

    (Poonch district, Jammu)and Shopian district (Kashmir).The road is under execution from March


    The ancient route Mughal Road, when developed, will help in overall development of

    the area and mitigate the hardships of People of Poonch & Rajouri.

    It will considerably reduce the travel distances between Poonch and Rajouri Districts

    with Srinagar. As against distances of 540Kms and 455Kms between Poonch & Rajouri

    District respectively with Srinagar via Jammu and NHIA, the distance along Mughal road

    between Srinagar with Poonch and Rajouri Districts shall be only 175Kms and 200Kms


    The Historical background of the proposed road and the beautiful meadows at Pir Panjal

    is expected to attract a large number of tourists, thereby boosting economy of the people.

    Besides the road will benefit the pilgrims from Kashmir Valley who visit the famous shrine of

    Baba Gulam Shah Badshah at Rajouri.

    The National Highway between Jammu & Srinagar (NH-1A) is under tremendous

    pressure with the increase in traffic. The road passes through steep mountainous terrain which

    are prone to landslides, rock falls and geological failures. As a result the road remains closedfor days together not only in winter, but also in summer during rainy season. The two-lane

    road between Bafliaz and Shopian, cutting across the Pir-Panjal mountains, will provide

    substantial traffic relief to NH-1A by diverting traffic of Rajouri and Ponch districts to this

    new road heading for valley and hence shall serve as an alternate seasonal road (April-

    November) connecting Kashmir valley with rest of the country.

  • 8/9/2019 TOR Avalanche


    The proposed road will promote economic, industrial, social and cultural development

    of the project influence area. It will help in raising living standards of the people,

    advancement of the community, improvement in medical, educational, post & telegraph and

    recreational facility. Employment potential in the area will be generated to a large extent.

    The proposed road will give a boost to the agricultural, industrial, building and

    commercial activities in the project influence area, which will create opportunities for

    economic uplift of the people. With the opening of this area to communications, the land value

    will go up. Farmers will get motorable access to the markets for selling their produce and this

    will give impetus to the agricultural production in this area.

    With the adoption of higher standards of proposed road, there will be reduction in the

    vehicle operating costs, fuel consumption, wear& tear of tyres, saving in time of passengers

    and vehicles and faster mobility of essential services. The fatigue and discomfort during travel

    will also be considerably reduced.
