The government of India has decided to reward the travelers who will visit 15 places in a year by funding their expenses. Not only this, you will also be honored as the ambassador of Indian Tourism. How cool is that? Let’s find out how.
When it was announced?
The Indian government is surely taking an extra steps to give more power to Indian travelers, hence not only this will motive US as a traveler but will certainly showcase the diversity and culture in our country. On Friday, Jan 24, 2020 during the concluding ceremony of the National Tourism Conference that was organized by the Odisha government in association with FICCI at Konark, the government decided to sponsor your travel expenses as a reward. You need to visit 15 domestic tourist spots in a year and you can be the lucky one.
“Tourism Ministry will fund the travel expenses of tourists who visit 15 destinations in the country in a year and submit the photos to our website,” Union Minister Prahlad Singh Patel said.
The campaign is called Dekho Apna Desh.
What is the criteria?
I am sure by now you all must be curious to know the criteria to follow to become eligible for the reward. Well it is very simple actually and for someone who is a travel enthusiast, he or she doesn’t need to do anything extra because I am sure this is what they are already doing.
How to be eligible for the reward:
- You need to travel to 15 destinations by year 2020 within India (duhhhh only 5 places to visit every year, easy peasy)

- Submit your photos
Is that it? Yes, that is all.

Anything else I should be aware of, NO THAT IS ALL.
