Intl tourism fest by CII in December

The CII (Northern Region) would organise International Tourism Fest in Chandigarh from 5 to 7 December. This was announced last Wednesday in the presence of senior officials of the tourism departments of Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Chandigarh at the CII headquarters in Chandigarh.

In order to provide a seamless travel to the tourists across the states in the north, a conclave of the Chief Ministers of the northern states would be organised to addess the issue of different rates of taxation.

“The tourists have to face a lot of difficulty owing to different tax levies while entering the different northern states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and UT of Chandigarh. The CII Tourism Fest would strive to resolve this bottleneck on priority basis by creating a Chief Minister’s Forum and getting all stakeholders together at one platform from 5-7 December in Chandigarh”, said Navjotpal Singh Randhawa, Director – Tourism, Government of Punjab.
