The Majuli-Nimati ferry service that was suspended from June 29 till July 1 resumed on Saturday.

The ferry services were suspended for three days due to the rising water levels of the River Brahmaputra along with thick fog and wooden logs floating in the water.

The Majuli district administration decided to reopen the services after the water levels of the Brahmaputra had slowly decreased.

Meanwhile, thousands of daily commuters were facing difficulty as the ferry service is their only medium to cross the river from Afalamukh and Komolabari to the South bank of the river. People need to cross the river daily for business, medical and educational purposes via ferries.

With the resuming of services, hundreds of people have been crowding at the Afalamukh and Komolabari ghats.
