Mobile app will help tourists get around Gujarat
The Tourism Corporation of Gujarat Limited (TCGL) is developing a range of tech solutions to help tourists make the most of their stay in the state.
Alongside the provision of a 24-7 call centre, there will be a mobile application and a geographic information system mapping out all of the tourist destinations in the region, the Times of India reports.
These tools will help tourists get information on destinations, facilities and hotels, as well as arrange taxi services and make online bookings.
V K Sharma, the chief executive officer of Gujarat Info Petro, said: “We are in the midst of developing the facilities for the Tourism Corporation of Gujarat and the facilities, if everything goes as per plan, will be launched next week.”
Gujarat is a state in western India, some 196,077 sq km in size (the UK is 243,610 sq km) and with a population of 60.4 million.
Although its capital is Gandhinagar, the state’s international airport is located in its largest city, Ahmedabad.
