UDAN: A boost for tourism in Himachal

Shimla: The National Democratic Alliance (NDA), under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is celebrating three years of its government at the Centre by virtue of which, the development across Himachal Pradesh is also being accessed.
The state has been getting the benefit of the Air Service to boost the tourism industry in the region.
Nearly a month ago with the aim of “Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik”, the UDAN scheme was launched by Prime Minister Modi on April 27 in Shimla.
This scheme has activated the Shimla airport, which was lying defunct for almost five years.
This scheme has given wings to the common man, who could not fly due to high airfare.
Though the capacity is too low, still 15 people are flying daily from Shimla to Delhi – benefitting under UDAN by paying around Rs. 25,000.
However the seats are less due to technical issues and ticket price for other seats are quite high and sometime around Rs. 19000.
