Rajasthan's Heritage Monuments available for "adoption"

Thru New Kerala

Rajasthan Government has introduced an innovative “Adopt-a-Monument” scheme to conserve the treasure of Heritage Monuments in the State through pubic and private investment.

This scheme, being first of its kind, is likely to take care of maintenance and development of monuments.

“Adopt-a-monument” scheme facilitates an individual; a businessman or corporate, to conserve a monument by contributing resources,” says Vinod Jutshi, Tourism Officer, Rajasthan.

Under the programme the adopting party would be allowed to use these places of antiquity for their promotional campaigns.

Under this scheme, a monument will be entrusted to the caretaker for a minimum period of 10 years while Government agencies will be responsible for the conservation work.
