Only a few days to go for the worldwide famous Char Dham Yatra where tourists have already made the bookings with GMVN and travel agencies. But the states tourism department still doesn’t seem to get over with the file work.
Tourism departments major part of income entirely depends on the Char Dham yatra which occurs twice a year. After the disaster occurred in June 2013 in Uttarakhand tourism business speedily went down. However, two years after the disaster, the Tourism department has still not taken any plan on the ground for tourism and pilgrimage. The situation is, two reception centers are opened in Haridwar where none of the centre holds any information about the substantial Char Dham Yatra.
Only the Department of Tourism holds the file for proposal of setting up biometric machines in Mansa Devi, Chandi Devi, Deen Dayal parking and Pantdweep parking lot. But, still it is not to be found anywhere on the ground look. Moreover, the empoyees sitting in reception centers were oblivious to any information regarding about Char Dham Yatra, while a few travelers and travel agencies also began to form near GMVN.
