''After October 31, in case of any accident or physical casualty, BRO would not be in a position to carry out snow clearance operation for evacuation'', he added.

So no movement of vehicles would be permitted during winter months due to impending inclement weather conditions and snow fall and closure of Rohtang and Baralachala passes, he explained.
