Bengal Tourism to shun ‘dry days’ in tourist spots

In sync with Mamata Banerjee’s vision to turn Bengal into a world-class tourist destination, the Tourism Department of West Bengal is mulling a plan to do away with the ‘dry days’ in popular tourist spots of the state.

The inbound tourists, be it domestic or foreigners are disappointed when they have to go through a ‘dry day’ at these destinations, where they have come to enjoy and relax.”
