Speaking at the 4th Odisha Tourism Conclave, Rupinder Brar, Additional Director General , Ministry of Tourism, Govt of India, says, “Goods and Services Tax is the top most priority for us and we are hoping for a positive result. We are encouraging all stakeholders to send across their suggestions and feedback so the GST council has all the right data to take a positive decision. We are also hoping to identify an iconic site for Odisha. MOT has come out with schemes to promote tourism. With ‘Adopt a heritage’, we not only want to encourage PPP but also get the community to participate. A global marketing campaign will be started soon by MOT and Odisha will be an important part of it.”
