Nod to rural tourism policy in Bihar

The state cabinet on Tuesday approved Rural Tourism Development Policy, 2013.

The nod would help promote rural tourism through private sector participation in infrastructure development.

“The government has come out with a policy to incentivise the private sector to provide facilities to tourists visiting villages. The idea is to help promote local people in decorating and maintaining their houses and their surroundings to attract the tourists’ attention,” cabinet department secretary Brajesh Mehrotra said.

Mehrotra said according to the policy, the government would help the local people engaged in manufacturing goods and products through handicraft, lac, Madhubani painting, carpet weaving and others. People willing to reap the benefit of the policy will have to submit their proposal to the tourism department in response to its advertisement.
