The Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation has launched a new scheme allowing tourists to stay in Indian homes
People visit Mumbai and its surrounding state to feel the unique atmosphere and see the fabled Indian hospitality.
Now this experience can be even more authentic.
The Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) has instigated a new scheme that will allow the enthusiastic citizens of Nashik to offer up their homes to tourists who wish to taste homely foods and live in traditional Indian accommodation.
This is the first project of its kind in the state.
“Citizens having additional rooms and wanting to play hosts to tourists can get registered with MTDC with necessary documents,” Pradnya Bade-Misal, regional manager of the Nashik division of the MTDC, told the Times of India.
It is thought that visitors to the area will be charged Rs 3,500 (£40) if they want to stay in the heart of the city, while Rs 2,500 will be the price for rooms in the more rural areas of Maharashtra.
