KP govt to provide Rs.77m relief package to tourism industry

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government is all set to provide relief of Rs77 million in the shape of waivers on registration fees and license fees for the tourism industry.

According to reports, the KP Tourism Department has waived off registration fees for hotels and restaurants and license fees for travel agencies and tour operators amounting to Rs77 million, for a period of one year.

The decision has been taken considering the adverse economic impacts of the coronavirus on KPs tourism industry.

According to a survey report, the closure of the tourism sector in KP due to the coronavirus is expected to cause losses of up to Rs12 billion by August, prompting the provincial government to announce a relief package in a bid to revive the industry.

The provincial government has handed over 168 rest houses in KP to the Tourism Department with the aim to promote tourism in the province. Out of the 168 rest houses, 55 were previously under the Communication and Works Department, 20 were under the Irrigation Department, 21 were under the local government, two were under Police and 70 were under the Forest Department.

The orders for the restoration of these rest houses were issued by the provincial government and after conducting a survey, all the rest houses have now been handed over to the Tourism and sports department.
