In preparation for the upcoming G-20 tourism meeting in May, smart security bunkers will be installed in Srinagar to create a sense of improved security. These new bunkers, costing Rs 44.44 lakhs, will replace the outdated and conventional bunkers currently present in Srinagar.

The responsibility of renovating the existing security bunkers and pickets in the Valley as part of a beautification effort has been assigned to the Srinagar Smart City Limited (SSCL).

Under India’s presidency, the third G-20 tourism working group meeting will take place in Kashmir from May 22-24, with discussions and deliberations held in the summer capital, Srinagar.
