Kerala Tourism minister P A Mohamed Riyas has urged DTPCs to find out unexplored destinations across the state. Riyas said that it is important that DTPCs take maximum care in maintaining the valuable tourism assets along with their respective areas.
“It is primarily your responsibility to explore unexplored destinations. Government’s perspective about tourism is that development of this key sector should also bring benefits to the people. DTPCs should function in tune with government policies,” he said.
In order to protect and reserve invaluable tourism assets, Riyas said that DTPC could plan projects and get the department’s support if required for maintaining such properties. Regarding the caravan tourism project, Riyas said that DTPCs can pinpoint potential sites for setting up caravan parks.
Kerala tourism is also joining hands with the LSG department for implementing varied projects, funds for which will be shared by KT and LSG institutions.
Tourism director V R Krishna Teja said DTPC offices need to have foolproof system for providing information to tourists regarding the facilities and services available in the destinations in their respective areas.
