Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has decided to fine tourists Rs20,000 for polluting the Kalam and Kumrat valleys.
Anyone who will try to form illegal housing societies in the valley will be fined Rs2 million and will be sent behind bars for three years.
The province is famous amongst travel enthusiasts for its snow-capped peaks, fresh springs, and breath-taking fields. The number of tourists visiting the areas increased this year after the coronavirus lockdown ended.
Following this, the province’s administration has introduced new rules. These also include Rs20,000 fine on building illegal speed breakers and Rs25,000 for damaging a road.
