For the beautification and better facilities for pilgrims at Badrinath, the Centre has given its approval for a project of Rs 39 crore. 

The project entails construction of cloak rooms, changing room and waiting rooms for the pilgrims.

Uttarakhand Tourism Secretary Dilip Jawalkar said these facilities would  make the yatra easy for the pilgrims coming from India and abroad. 

“The project will be handled by the Uttarakhand Tourism Development Board and in two years, the Badrinath dham will be the favourite destination for the pilgrims,” said Dilip Jawalkar.  

The Centre will release the funds in three instalments and a committee will soon be set up for monitoring the project and submit the monthly report to the government. 

According to the proposal, the changing room will be constructed near Tapt Kund and Narad Kund, besides the construction of Yatri Suvidha Kendra, Aastha path and a dispensary for pilgrims. — TNS
