IN-CAR DINING TO BOOST TOURISM IN KERALA
The KTDC Restaurants across the state will serve delicious cuisine to tourists with in-car dining.
“The in-car dining is a project designed to give a boost to Kerala tourism sector, hit badly by Covid-19. We are launching this project by which tourists coming to Kerala will be able to use this service. Amid Covid-19 pandemic, instead of dining inside a restaurant and mingling with the crowd, such a project will also ensure safety”, the Tourism Minister Mohamed Riyas said.
A high level meeting was conducted to finalise projects to inspire confidence among the travellers and will work to double tourist arrivals by 2025.
Government has initiated a project in which new tourism destinations will be developed in every Panchayat to attract maximum domestic tourists.
In the tourism sector all staff will be vaccinated immediately.
