Also, the setting up of 8 to 10 Roadside Amenities will be done after the Centre is provided with 40 to 50 acres of land. The Roadside Amenities will have petrol pumps, hotels, restaurants, and pavilions for shops for the display of local art and craft items for the tourists. Each such unit will cost us around Rs. 70 crore and the minister said, he is ready to spend Rs 500-600 crore on it if the state government provides us with the land. The Minister also said that the state government has been requested for inland waterways transportation in Dal lake and other rivers and that the central government is ready to help in this venture also.
