Amended Uttarakhand River Rafting and Kayaking Rule 3 Lengthens Season for Kosi and Ramganga West

The Governor of Uttarakhand amended the Uttarakhand River Rafting / Kayaking Rules, 2014 on December 21, 2016.

The amended rules are called Uttarakhand River Rafting / Kayaking (Amendment) Rules, 2016.  (Rule 1-1)

The Uttarakhand River Rafting / Kayaking (Amendment) Rules, 2016 shall come into force immediately. (Rule 1-3)

Amended Uttarakhand River Rafting and Kayaking Rule 3

Uttarakhand has also amended the Rule 3 once more to expand the season for these activities.

In 2015, the Rule 3-2 was substantially changed to lengthen the season for all the rivers. However, in 2016, just a new clause has been added to the Sub-Rule 2. So, the Rule 3-2 now has six clauses (a to f). The Rule 3-2-f (2016) extends the rafting season just for two sections of the two rivers.

Here is the comparison of the season length as per the 2014, 2015, and 2016 rules:
