Published on : Monday, December 13, 2021

Recently, for the students, the Association of Buddhist Tour Operators (ABTO) has come to a decision to introduce Buddhist circuit “darshan yatra” of around 1,200 institutions across the country where Buddhism is taught.

ABTO has given the responsibility to Amene Shirazi Nejad, a research scholar of Buddhist studies at Delhi University, as part of the initiative, to develop tourism relations between India and Iran. The Buddhist darshan yatra is hoped to create opportunities related to employment for the locals other than tourism boost up.

On the concluding day of the ABTO’s on Sunday, three-day conference on ‘2,566 years of Buddhism: Its relevance today’, participants talked about the step adopted to promote tourism as well as creating employment opportunities.

To quote ABTO founder Secretary General, Kaulesh Kumar, “It was decided that ABTO will start a monthly online course on Buddhist tourism for free. Apart from those related to tourism industry, others can also join the course and explore employment opportunities in tourism sector.”

He added, “ABTO will write to the Union tourism ministry requesting it to increase the number of iconic cities from 10 to at least 100. From January 1, a campaign would start and people will be made aware of the tourism sites.”

In the meantime, ABTO has signed a MoU with Travel World Online for the renewal of the Covid impacted tourism. Anil Sharma, the Travel World Online Director and ABTO Founder Secretary General Kaulesh Kumar on Saturday signed the MoU.

“Travel World Online app is a B2B marketplace for travel fraternity. It is a perfect networking platform to have a better connection between all verticals of travel, tourism and hospitality industry. Now, travel trade members, associations, hotels, airlines and other tourism groups can connect and communicate at ease,” Sharma said.
