AyodhyaUttar Pradesh, November 7, 2011: The central government has said that it would spend rupees 10 crore for the financial year 2011-12 for promoting religious tourism in Ayodhya, the birth place of Lord Ram.

Union Minster for Tourism Subodh Kant Sahay yesterday said that rupees 5 crore have been sanctioned for development of the city on the basis of proposal submitted by the state government.

“I want to develop Ayodhya – birth place of Rama – as major tourism hub,” he said.

Sahay also said that in the 12th five year plan, rupees 200 crore has been allocated for development of tourism in UP.

He said that the Centre was ready to fund development work in Ayodhya, but for that, the state government would have to file proposals.
