“We are still in the initial phase, as officials and I myself have been pondering upon the possibilities of the plan. But once approved, this will certainly help in boosting up foreign tourists,” the Minister of State (Independent Charge), Tourism, Prahlad Singh Patel told IANS.
Under the proposed plan, the ministry will initially identify famous monuments, later a data research will be conducted to ascertain top three countries from where most number of tourist visit that particular site. The ministry will then erect sign boards in the mother tongue of those countries.
“We are planning to erect sign boards with at least three foreign languages. Also it will adjust a QR code that would deliver the details about the monument just like a guide,” Mr Patel added.
