Helicopter ride for tourists visiting Taj

Agra: The Tourism Guild of Agra, an association of hotel and emporium owners, wants to start a 20-minute helicopter ride from Taj Mahal to Fatehpur Sikri.
Talking to TOI, Rajiv Saxena, secretary of the guild, said, "We have given a proposal to the district magistrate. He has asked for a comprehensive proposal which includes timings, the area where it will run and what safety measure would be in place and the kind of boats to be used."
Saxena added that the guild would now look for the suitable vendor who could run this project. After this the administration will seek requisite permissions from the authorities concerned. The administration has assured to provide all support to make this venture a success.
"The aim of the project is to make tourists visit to the city more enjoyable. Taj's backdrop would be the perfect setting for this venture and we are hopeful that a large number of tourists would like to take a ride. Not much arrangements are need to be made as far as water level in the river is concerned. Only jetty would be required to build at both ends of the ride" he added.
