The Haryana tourism department has identified a rural tourism cluster to be developed in the Brij area of Palwal district. The government has also decided to develop new GT circuits from Panchkula to Mahendergarh for which expenses will be borne by the union ministry of tourism.

An official spokesman said the union ministry of tourism has designated Darashaw & Company Pvt Ltd as the state-level project management agency (SLPMA) for developing GT circuits.

Under the concept of circuit tourism introduced by the union ministry of tourism, development of infrastructure, upgrade, beautification and restoration of old monuments and places of historical and cultural importance are taken up for integrated development and financed by the central government.

The circuits already developed under the scheme are Panipat-Kurukshetra-Pinjore Circuit (Phase-1); Panipat-Kurukshetra-Pinjore circuit (Phase 2); and Yamunanagar-Panchkula-Paonta Sahib as a mega tourism circuit.
