The MoU was signed between the Additional Director Tourism, Sanjay Pande and Bhim Singh, President, FHTR, at an event held at Hotel ITC Rajputana, Sheraton, Jaipur in the presence of Nihal Chand Goel, Chief Secretary of Rajasthan.

Speaking on the occasion, Goel said that the primary objective of ‘Rajasthan Domestic Travel Mart’ is to exclusively focus on the domestic tourists from various parts of India and establish Rajasthan as one of the leading domestic tourist destinations in the country. The vision 2020 initiated by the CM had an objective of 5 crore tourist footfall in the state by the year 2020. But the State has attained close to 5 crore tourists in the year 2017 itself and with new initiatives like this, the State intends to achieve the set goal and probably outperform our own predicted numbers, he said.
