Default Government considers extending support to Vintage Car Rallies

An excerpt from the full Economic Times article:

Quote:
An annual rally of vintage automobiles, including motorised beauties with royal histories, organised by a private heritage trust may soon be scaled up with government backing to promote India as a preferred motoring tourism destination.

Calling it an "untapped tourism potential", the tourism ministry is currently considering a proposal from the Gurgaon -based trust to support its '21 Gun Salute International Vintage Car Rally' scheduled for February 6-7 next year.

"India had one of the largest numbers of these cars thanks to the maharajas and their love for automobiles. Events like these vintage rallies are a great opportunity to also promote India as a preferred motoring tourism destination, which is yet untapped," Joint Secretary, Tourism Ministry, Suman Billa told PTI.
