Ajay Bhatt, Minister of State for Tourism, has highlighted the pressing need for additional parking spaces at popular tourist destinations. “The unprecedented number of tourists visiting these famous places has necessitated the development of more parking facilities in nearby areas. As a proactive measure, efforts have already begun to construct a parking area in Bhowali and Bhimtal near Nainital. The government is also considering plans to further expand parking spaces at other tourist destinations to cater to the increasing influx of visitors,” he said in an interaction with TravTalk recently.

The MOT also recognizes the potential of developing border areas for tourism purposes. “To achieve this goal, the ministry is committed to developing all necessary facilities and infrastructure in these areas. This includes improving transport network, tourist attractions, and amenities,” he said.
