Rajasthan Cabinet approves Rural Tourism Scheme

The Rajasthan Cabine has approved the Rajasthan Rural Tourism Scheme, 2022, to boost rural tourism and generate employment.

During a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, the Cabinet took several big decisions, including giving more opportunities for promotions to state government personnel, it said in a statement.

The Rajasthan Rural Tourism Scheme will create employment opportunities in the villages and protect the handicrafts industry by establishing rural guest houses, agricultural tourism units, camping sites and caravan parks. At the same time, the scheme will acquaint domestic and foreign tourists with Rajasthan’s rural culture.

The scheme will allow the establishment and operation of rural tourism units on a minimum 1,000 square metres and a maximum 2 hectares of agricultural land. These units will not require land conversion and building plan approval. Several other provisions, including 100 per cent stamp duty exemption, have also been made.

The Cabinet also approved the Rajasthan Homeless Upliftment and Rehabilitation Policy, 2022, to provide terraces with minimum space of 50 square feet per person for privacy and security to special categories such as women, mentally challenged and the sick.

There are also provisions to provide basic necessities such as drinking water, medical facilities, adequate fire safety measures and running shelters for homeless persons. This decision will empower the homeless people by providing education, skills and employment, it said in the statement.
