A brand new initiative has been taken by Ladakh where it recently introduced a brand new way to address tourist grievances where Lieutenant Governor R K Mathur introduced Ladakh Police Tourist Wing where they will be dealing with issues that the tourists deal with. One of the popular tourist destinations in India, this new move by the UT will inspire many tourists to visit.
According to the Lieutenant Governor, the tourist wing will be done with the help of technology. The new tourist wing will be able to handle rescue operations and also assist with medical emergencies that the tourists face when coming to the Union territory.
Members of the tourist wing will be trained with all the necessary training and they will be able to create a flawless communication system with tourist agencies, civil administration and as well as the health department. This is a well-thought and planned system so that it is beneficial for tourism to thrive in Ladakh.
The Lt. governor on speaking about this said, “A balance between assisting the tourists and adherence to legal aspects will be the key element defining the successful operation of this new tourist police wing.”
Another piece of good news for domestic tourists is that the UT of Ladakh has now decided to do away with Inner Line Permit for Indian Tourists and this would be beneficial for domestic tourists who are planning to visit the protected areas of Ladakh.
This news has been shared by the official handle of Ladakh tourism in social media platforms where destinations such as Nubra Valley, Pangong Lake, Tsomoriri Lake, among others, do not require an ILP any longer.
