In the midst of the Covid 19 pandemic, the Indian government of Karnataka has launched a concept of “caravan tourism”. The initiative is to screen the tourism sector that is badly affected by the corona virus.
Prime Minister B. S. Yediyurappa rolled out the minibus caravan and said the government was determined to promote and revitalize the tourism sector, which is one of the main sources of employment.
The minibus caravans have bunk beds, toilet, bathroom and kitchen.
The tourism sector accounts for almost 14% of gross domestic profit, and the Karnataka CM says that caravan tourism promotes independent tourism to ensure measures related to health, security and social distance.
In the first phase, the government will authorize caravan tourism in Hampi, Gokarna, Badami, Kudremukh, Sakleshpura, Belur, Halebidu, Kodagu and Sakrebailu. The caravan can be parked for the night in state guest houses and in the KSTDC hotel grounds.
As part of this new tourism policy, the government will promote a new initiative.
Due to the pandemic, Karnataka has lost over 15,000 million in tourism, and the CM also appealed to everyone involved to join forces and revitalize the sector.
