Chandigarh, Dec 1 (IANS) A National Culinary Institute (NCI), the first of its kind in north India, would soon be set up at Haryana’s Pinjore to boost employment opportunities in tourism sector, an official said Thursday.
State Financial Commissioner and Principal Secretary, Tourism, Dhanpat Singh told reporters at the Yadvindra Gardens at Pinjore, 20 km from Chandigarh, that the union tourism ministry had already accorded in-principle approval to the Rs.5 crore project.
