Anil Oraw, Regional Director (North), India Tourism has said that with 6500 km of the international border, border tourism can emerge as a niche tourism segment for India. With not many capital-intensive industries feasible along the international borders, he said that border tourism could give ample scope for the economic upliftment of people around the border districts of the country.
Oraw also extended an invitation to the attendees to participate in large numbers in the maiden Incredible India Kargil Marathon to be held on July 24, 2022, at Kargil organised under the aegis of the Ministry of Tourism, Govt. of India. The marathon will coincide with the celebration of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav Week between July 16-22, 2022, he said.
