Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation (RTDC) Chairman Dharmendra Rathore stated that we are excited to bring India’s luxury tourist train back on track from September in all likelihood.
Palace on Wheels is a high-class luxury tourism product of Rajasthan, which used to attract thousands of tourists before covid as the government stopped its operations due to covid outbreak. But now, as the covid situation is pretty much under control, Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation has decided to bring back the Palace on Wheels on track by September this year.
This announcement has been made by the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation chairman while meeting a delegation of the Federation of Hospitality and Tourism of Rajasthan (FHTR) at the Paryatan Bhawan in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
