Maha, Raj tourism bodies to renew pact

The tourism development corporations of Rajasthan and Maharashtra will renew the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed in 1998 to promote tourism in both states.

Vinod Ajmera, managing director of the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation (RTDC), who is in the city to attend a travel and tourism fair, said, “We had signed the MoU with the Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) 15 years back, which expired five years ago. We will meet the MTDC officials soon. The MoU is aimed at not just promoting both the states but also to popularize the properties in Maharashtra and Rajasthan among tourists. It will facilitate tourists coming from Rajasthan to stay in Maharashtra’s properties and vice versa.”

Ajmera said that Rajasthan will focus on tourists from Pune, an economic hub, who travel for leisure. “They must also enjoy the colourful state of Rajasthan through its luxury train Palace on Wheels. The train was recently recognized as the fourth best luxury train in the world,” he said.
