Haryana Tourism aims to bring state on international map
Keeping pace with the changing scenario, the Haryana Tourism has adopted a multi-pronged strategy to further improve its services, make the youth employable and bring Haryana prominently on the map of international tourism.
Stating this here today at a press conference, Principal Secretary, Tourism, Vijai Vardhan, said that while on one hand the facility of 'banqueting and conferencing' was being expanded and all the rooms in tourist complexes were being renovated, Institutes of Hotel Management and Catering and new amusement parks were also being set up at different places in the state.
He said that new banquet and conference halls had already been added at eight-nine tourist complexes and three more were being added at tourist complexes at Panchkula, Hisar and Yamunanagar and yet another has been approved for the complex at Rai.
This, he said, was being done keeping in view the growing demand for such a facility. Also, online booking of rooms has been introduced which had shown very encouraging results. At present this facility is available for 80 per cent of the complexes but it would soon be added at other complexes.
In reply to a question, Mr Vijay Vardhan said that the Haryana Tourism was not running in losses. In fact, it was among the few such organisations that were running in profits.
He also released the poster of the 2-day 7th Pinjore Heritage Festival commencing from tomorrow at Yadavindra Gardens, Pinjore.
