Still even after four a few months of having announced that the project would soon become underway, sources at IRCTC said the tourism planks and corporations of partner states were not very interested in the project and thus, it required the re-think at kunne IRCTC degree. An IRCTC official said, “The project would have already been helpful in boosting tourism in the area and since there is certainly almost no linkage among Chandigarh and spiritual places close-by. inches
The particular destinations which were identified for any project had been Kurukshetra, Fatehgarh Sahib, Naina Devi, Anandpur Sahib, Chintpurni as well as Chamunda Devi as well as Jwalamukhi Devi.
Resources in Punjab history and tourism advertising board said the particular plans have been discussed at a very first stage and so they expected to hold some more conferences.
The senior official said, “With the particular Bharat Darshan Train not attached to Chandigarh, the brand new project would be beneficial to show the religious as well as cultural heritage from the state in order to tourists. We are looking at tying develop IRCTC every time they develop the particular proposal. inches
