Principal Resident Commissioner, Sikkim House, New Delhi has been directed to liaison and coordinate with Resident Commissioner of Jammu & Kashmir on regular basis. The  co-ordinates of the hotel Pearl Cottage, Shiraz Road, Rainawari, near Petro Pump, Srinagar, where the Sikkim team has been staying has been ascertained as latitude 34.5.43 N and longitude 74.49.15E and the Air force operating for relief and rescue operations has been communicated these co-ordinates. Assistance of the Army have also been sought.

Dr. Sandeep Tambe, IFS, Special Secretary, RMDD has been deputed to coordinate from Delhi and go to Srinagar, Jammu & Kashmir if necessary to bring back the stranded group.
