“Under the influence of this weather system, widespread/ moderate rain and snow is expected in Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh regions. Light rain/ snow would commence at a few places in Kashmir on 13th (night) and thereafter increase in intensity and distribution with its peak during 14th and 15th November and gradual decrease thereafter,” the IMD forecast said.

It said the disturbance would also result in mercury taking a slight dip in day temperature and a slight increase in night temperature.

The forecast mentions that upper regions of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh would mainly receive a heavy rain/ snowfall including Sonamarg, Baramulla, Gulmarg, Bandipora, Gurez and Tulail valley, Shopian, Qazigund, Pir Panjal, Karnah sector in Kupwara and sub-division of Drass and Zanskar in Ladakh region.

The disturbance will probably hamper the traffic movement on Srinagar-Jammu national highway, Mughal road and other major roads.

The weather report also said that vulnerable spots on Jammu-Srinagar highway could witness landslides and shooting stones.

The report adds that snowfall may disrupt the agricultural operations like apple harvesting and orchard management this year too.

The new traffic rules came into effect from today in Jammu and Kashmir. Under the rules, no physical copies of documents like driving licence, registration certificate or insurance are required to be carried along if you show digitally prescribed form.

Regional Transport Officer, Iqramulla Tak told Greater Kashmir that the amendments to the Motor Vehicle Act, 1989, came into force from Thursday and major changes include no physical verification of documents.

According to the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH), changes have been done for better implementation of traffic rules, push digitisation, and prevent harassment of drivers by police officials.

According to the official notification of MoRTH, details of driving licences disqualified or revoked by the licensing authority shall be recorded chronologically in the portal and such record shall be reflected on a regular basis on the portal.

“Thus the record shall be maintained electronically and further the driver behaviour would be monitored,” it said.

“Further upon demanding or inspecting any documents, the date and time stamp of inspection and identity of the police officer in uniform or any other officer authorized by the State Government, shall be recorded on the Portal. This would help in unnecessary rechecking or inspection of vehicles and further would remove harassment to the drivers,” it reads.

The records on the portal would be updated every time a driver or the vehicle is inspected.

“One can maintain their vehicular documents on the government’s online portals like Digilocker or m-parivahan. On demand, the commuter can show his driving license and other relevant documents digitally for inspection,” said an official.

The new rules also provide for communications devices like smartphones could be used only for route navigation but in such a way that drivers don’t lose their concentration while driving.

Under fresh rules, authorities can revoke driving license of violator digitally in case of need.

“We are happy to see vehicular documents found validated through electronic means and shall not be demanded in physical form for inspection,” said Aqib Bhat of Baghat Barzulla.

New Delhi, Sep 23 (PTI) Hailing the passage of the Jammu and Kashmir Official Languages Bill in Parliament, Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Wednesday said a huge anomaly stands corrected with official recognition being accorded to Kashmiri and Dogri.

He said it was a "gross injustice" to not have included these two languages, which are spoken by over 73 per cent of Jammu and Kashmir''s population, in its list of official languages.

The Jammu and Kashmir Official Languages Bill, 2020 was passed by Rajya Sabha through voice vote on Wednesday. Lok Sabha had cleared the legislation on Tuesday.

Briefing the media on the bill, Singh recalled that the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir notified Urdu and English as its official languages in 1957 even though they were spoken by less than one per cent of the total population.

With the new constitutional arrangement after August 5, 2019 and Jammu and Kashmir becoming a union territory on the midnight of October 31, 2019, there have been continuous endeavours to correct the anomalies of the past, the Minister of State for Personnel said.

The bill passed on Wednesday also sought to do the same, he added.

Singh said a huge anomaly stands corrected with official recognition being accorded to regional languages of Dogri and Kashmiri.

Kashmiri is the most widely spoken language in the union territory. It is spoken by 53.26 per cent of the population, while Dogri is spoken by 20.64 per cent. Together, these two languages are spoken by around 73.90 per cent of the population, he said.

"Therefore, it was a gross injustice not to have included these two languages as the official languages," he said.

Singh lauded Union Home Minister Amit Shah for arriving at the decision to include these languages in the official list.

He said the home minister has also corrected another aberration by including Hindi in the list of Jammu and Kashmir''s official languages.

At the same time, the home minister was considerate enough not to disturb the earlier arrangement, which included Urdu and English. Thus, Jammu and Kashmir will now have five official languages, he added.

According to the 2011 Census, Singh said, the most commonly spoken languages in Jammu and Kashmir after Kashmiri and Dogri are Gojri, Pahadi and Punjabi.

Gojri and Pahadi are spoken by 9.32 per cent and 8.03 per cent of the population, respectively, he said.

"However, the new legislation does not, in any way, undermine the importance of these languages and the matter of the fact is that their status and official standing remains the same as it was before 5th August 2019," he said.

Singh said the government is committed to the promotion, patronage and growth of all languages, including Punjabi, Gojri and Pahadi, which have a rich heritage and legacy.

"While their status will remain unaltered and same as it was before 5th August 2019, the government will make further endeavours to strengthen the mechanism for growth of these languages," he said.
