Soon, policy for residents to allow homestay: Gurjar

Mahendragarh, September 5

Tourism and Education Minister Kanwar Pal Gurjar said the government had framed a 'Stay home' policy to promote tourism in the state. The policy would not only add to the people's income but also strengthen the economy.

Gurjar was interacting with mediapersons after visiting historical Madhogarh fort in the district on Saturday. Former minister Ram Bilas Sharma and Ateli MLA Sitaram Yadav were also present.

"Under the policy, locals will be allowed to make available one to two rooms for the visitors to stay at their home. The concept of homestay is being liked by the visitors as they want to closely observe the culture, customs and lifestyle of the village," said the minister.

He said the police would ensure 50 per cent loan with low interest rate so that villages could generate a source of income by constructing rooms for the visitors in their house. Madhogarh fort would be developed as a national tourist spot, said Gurjar who later inspected repair work of Rani Mahal.

Earlier, the minister also felicitated Manisha Yadav, a student of Government Senior Secondary School, Sihma, with a reward of Rs 1 lakh for securing top position in the state in the senior secondary examination. — TNS
