A large number of Gujjars and Bakarwals follow nomadic lifestyle. Every year many of these Gujjars and Bakarwals migrate to the higher reaches of Pir Panjal Ranges as part of their customary migratory practice, with many of those crossing the mighty Pir Panjal Ranges to migrate into Kashmir Valley.

Mr Syed Sahil Ali Shah, Tehsildar Khawas Tehsil, carried out registration and issued the passes to the Gujjars and Bakarwals during this Registration Camp.

The registration camp was aimed at assisting the Gujjars and Bakarwals hailing from Khawas Tehsil in their documentation process for registration and issuance of passes, which facilitates their migratory movement across the Pir Panjal Ranges in the Kashmir valley.
