The Andhra Pradesh tourism department will submit its final report on tourism development in the old city of Hyderabad to the state government shortly. The modified plan includes restoration of the Charminar and surrounding heritage buildings.
“The report was earlier forwarded to the central government by the state department. But it was returned in September limiting the project value to INR8.5 crore, which was later cited as INR12 crore. Now the plan has been revised by the tourism department to fit the new budget and development plans of all private properties surroundings the Charminar and the Qutub Shahi Tombs which were earlier included have been removed from the revised plan,” an official involved in the project told the Times of India.
