In one such initiative, the government has plans to put up digital signages not only in major Indian languages but also in the important foreign languages in the 30 kilometer periphery of the city. Sources in the Uttar Pradesh government said that people from across the country had to land either in Varanasi or in Lucknow to reach Allahabad which are 130 and 200 kilometers away from Allahabad respectively. Now people will be able to get direct flights from the far off places of the country to Allahabad. Air Force officials and civil aviation ministry is looking after the entire matter.

The city of tents as the 45-day long mela is known to the world will install 4000 premium tents for the visitors. Around 192 countries' mission chiefs are also expected to visit the mela for that the city is decked up with state-of-the-art infrastructure. The government is also likely to issue a postal stamp to commemorate the mela in which not only the UP government but the entire Sangh Pariwar is involved.
