Govt to fund travel expenses of tourists visiting 15 places by 2022

Bringing cheer to travel enthusiasts, the Centre has announced a reward for people visiting 15 tourist places till 2022. As a reward, the government would fund the travel expenses of those who travel to at least 15 tourist destinations.

The Ministry of Tourism has launched the programme called ‘Dekho Apna Desh’. Details of the programme have been put up on the website, where Indians can pledge to travel at least 15 tourist locations across the country by 2022.

“The tourism ministry will fund the travel expenses of tourists who visit 15 destinations in the country in a year and submit the photos on our website,” said Prahlad Singh Patel, Union Tourism Minister, on January 24 at the concluding ceremony of the two-day National Tourism Conference in Odisha’s Konark.

These travellers need to first pledge by visiting this link, and then upload photos on the website after visiting any 15 tourist locations in a year. One needs to travel outside their home state to be eligible for the contention. However, these expenses should be not construed as a monetary benefit, but as an incentive.

The minister also said the Sun Temple at Konark would be included in the list of ‘iconic sites’. A special event will be organised to announce this very soon, he said.
