Mr Rajindera Kumar newly elected President of Hotel and of Restaurant Association of Northern India (HRANI) has advocated for the revival of a circuit named 'A Winter Paradise Circuit' at the association's 42nd convention in Chandigarh.
The project, A Winter Paradise Circuit, was prepared to bring the northern states Haryana, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and J&K with Chandigarh as a gateway on the tourist circuit. Plans were made for marketing the circuit to the international tourist. The combination of all the three states presents the potpourri of India.
The harmonious amalgamation of the capital of the Haryana and Punjab that is Chandigarh with its entire historic splendor, the soft romanticism that can be felt at Himachal Pradesh and the fierce magnificence of Haryana presents India at its best.
Time ripe for revival In the word of Mr. Rajindera Kumar, "The time is ripe for the promotion of this project with Commonwealth Games approaching in the year 2010 the city's infrastructure is seeing a lot of improvement for making Delhi and NCR a world class city. All this and much more can give tourism sector in India much needed quantum leap. 'A Winter Paradise Circuit' can become a success story which only needs rejuvenation."
Further elaborating the fact he says, "In my opinion this circuit will prove fruitful in the years ahead. The taxes in Punjab are lower in comparison to other states and infrastructure is also much better compared to other states. Punjab is, therefore, an ideal place for investment."
"The main stress in this policy is to facilitate the private investor so that this project is implemented in a time bound manner with minimum delay. Besides Punjab it will also be of help to the state of J &K which has seen the decline in the tourist inflow courtesy the terrorism."
