Assam Cabinet approves tourism policy 2022

At a meeting, presided over by Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, the Assam Cabinet has approved a policy which seeks to create Special Tourism Zones (STZs) by promoting tea garden visits, wellness initiatives, and adventure activities, along with the existing wildlife and heritage circuit.

“In a bid to boost tea tourism, the cabinet has approved a set of guidelines for the promotion and development of infrastructure in the estates,” tourism minister Jayanta Malla Baruah told reporters after the meeting.

It was decided that 50 tea gardens with iconic bungalows close to existing tourism circuits would be selected for the development of infrastructure in Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode, the minister added. The state budget for 2022-23 has earmarked Rs 50 crore for the promotion of tea tourism.

The tourism policy also seeks to engage local people, both directly and indirectly, in various endeavours, support the development of homestays and focus on coordination between tourism and transportation sectors, Baruah said.
