Travel trends clearly reveal that more and more Indian tourists are looking to get more adventurous while holidaying. Thus many of the new generation travelers are no longer satisfied with the more conventional ways of traveling. They want to venture out of the normal.

However while travelers want to indulge in such type of adventures the concerned tourism authorities want to be sure about the safety of the travelers who want to venture out.

A new initiative by the union government and certain state governments has been initiated in this direction. The state tourism of Jharkhand in order to ensure better safety for travelers to the many tourist spots in the state will train boatmen as well as “paryatan mitras” near the dams and waterfalls at various locations throughout Jharkhand. As you would already know that there are many major dams and waterfalls spread across Jharkhand like the Maithan Dam, Bhatinda falls and many others which draw many tourists from near and far. It is for the basic safety of the travelers to these major tourist locations that this step has been taken. 

This training in to be done following a tie up with the “National Institute of Water Sports” in Panaji Goa , which is under the Union Ministry of Tourism. In fact the experts from ths Institute would provide training provide life saving techniques to the applicants through this initiative. This is a 5 day training program which would also certify the trained boat men and rescue operators. This is a major shift in tourism policy.

What it means?

Thus as a  frequent traveler to Dhanbad or other tourist places in Jharkhand, you can feel happy about the fact that safety of travelers is finally getting recognized as an important need for the Jharkhand State Government.
