Picnic and Angling

Yesterday we started angling in Eco Park. Rs 1,500 per seat.There are 5 seats. Seats have to be booked in advance: there is no on-spot booking. Already bookings for 7 days have been made.There was a festive mood with a number of curious onlookers too. At the request of the first day's anglers, I decided to extend the time every day till sunset time. Also, 4 (instead of 3) hooks per fishing rod will be allowed, we agreed, for the reason that big fish tend to free themselves away otherwise. 

Yesterday, at Eco Park:
Suman Neogy, Sutanu Kar, me, T Giri
Today, I inspected the banks of the Upasana Ghat in Action Area 1D along with officers of NKDA and Hidco.We decided that from next Sunday, picnics will be allowed. There are arrangements for 4 groups of picnicers on a day: there are kitchen sheds,washing area,water taps and Pay-and Use Toilet. The rate wouldbe Rs 1,500 per day per group.
