Modern Tourism in Udaipur

The Traditional concept of Tourism is well known by the people, which includes:  Luxurious Hotels, Special places to Visit.  Specially in a country like India the list of such places is never ending. We have quite a long list of such places – starting from the Taj Mahal, Eastern Coastal Line, The Breathtaking beauty of Himalayas, the western deserts etc. But that period is long gone when tourists used to visit such places merely to Eat, Drink & Merrymaking, this modern period calls for improvisation.

Many tourists want to learn & explore more about the people they meet & the places they visit. This indicates that the present day tourism is more ‘Knowledge Oriented‘ or ‘Cultural Tourism‘. This is where we have an advantage over the others, Udaipur is blessed with all the characteristics which will undoubtedly make us a leader in the present world of Tourism.

We have so much to offer to the people – almost every place, palace and lakes  has a story associated with it, and the Modern Tourism demands exploration and learning, this is where we take the lead. Secondly, the Rich Heritage and culture adds to the increased interaction between tourists and local people. The tourists get a glimpse of the traditional life-style and culture and this is what matters. These small interactions, experiences are preserved by the tourists and these small things leave a impression upon the tourists which actually shapes the image of any place.

Ways to promote Tourism :

Multimedia presentations can be made available in the top tourist spots. These MM presentations would include topics like music, culture, history, biodiversity etc.

A Special emphasis to highlight the Cultural Tourism and Knowledge Based Tourism should be made in order to support them.

Indiscriminate Exploitation Of Ground Water

Water is a public property. Everyone has equal share over it,this concept is readily acceptable by everyone.But, what I feel is that the people have taken this concept into a completely wrong sense. This massive misinterpretation has led to acute water related problem.

For Instance, Some of the people are exploiting the ground water resources obnoxiously in our very town.


This was snapped from one of the 8 tube wells on either side of the 100 feet road near a settlement in Sukher opposite to the Maharana Pratap Khel Gaon. Near about 50 water tankers daily carry water from these sites.Each tanker has a capacity of approx 5,000 litres. It is seen that a water tanker makes around 10 trips in a day…..

It can be estimated that about 25,00,000 Litres of water is daily extracted through these sites.
The the thing bothering me the most is that

All that is below the ground (water, minerals etc) is a government property. It can’t be exploited without the permission of the government, whether be minerals, rocks etc… Water is a public property, and if someone is selling it to earn money,It surely is a SOCIAL CRIME.
It is clearly stated in the MUNICIPAL ACT 2009 that a person requires approval and a license by the government for this purpose. In case a person doesn’t do so there are provisions to impose penalties and fines.

Let us see what the Senior’s have to say :

Arun Vyas, Senior Advocate
The reason we cannot take any action against these exploiters is that there is no such government policy which restricts the movements of these vendors.

Anand Kumar , Collector
City and surrounding areas where the groundwater is being exploited. These sites would be checked and proper actions would be taken. We won’t let the ground water to be exploited.
