Single-window clearance for tourism projects in HimachalAugust 14th, 2008 - 6:19 pm ICT by IANS
Shimla, Aug 14 (IANS) All mega tourism projects involving an investment of over Rs.500 million will go through a single-window clearance authority in Himachal Pradesh, an official said Thursday. A government spokesman said Thursday that this was being done to reduce red tape in the clearance of the projects.
Earlier, single-window clearance was for industrial projects only.
Several tourism projects had not made any headway due to procedural delays, official sources said.
Senior officials of the tourism department, including the secretary (tourism), have been made members of the single-window clearance authority.
