Increase in the air lifting of the passengers have been recorded in the month of December and January to the tune of 421 passengers from Kishtwar to Marwah-Warwan and Dacchan which is attributed to the closure of the road at Margan Top due to heavy snowfall.Speaking on the occasion, DC informed that government has fixed only Tuesday and Friday for the airlifting of the passengers from Jammu-Doda-Kishtwar-Marwah-Warwan,Dacchan and back to Jammu, but keeping in view the rush of the passengers during the month of December and January from Marwah and Warwan to Kishtwar and vice versa, the passengers have also been lifted on Wednesday,Thursday and Sunday.It was also informed that the subsidized helicopter tariff from Jammu to Kishtwar,  Kishtwar to (Soundar) Dacchan, Kishtwar to (Nawapachi) Marwah and Kishtwar to (Inshan) Warwan is Rs 4000, Rs 1000, Rs 1500 and Rs 2000 respectively.
