Abrupt hike in entry fee to Neermahal, people irked

By Our Correspondent

Agartala, Aug 13 2019: Tourism department has increased entry fee Neermahal, only lake palace of Eastern India by three-fold irking potential tourists.

In a sudden move, the department issued a notification declaring that entry free to Neermahal has been increased from Rs. 10 to Rs. 30 per adult while Rs. 5 to Rs. 20. And, the revised rate has already come into effect from August 1.

The abrupt hike in entry fee has angered the people as a whole. They said the department has taken no step to improve tourism related facilities at Neermahal, Rudra Sagar and Sagar Mahal for the past one and half years.

The depth of Rudrasgar has been reduced to only 4/5 feet. A dredger machine which was procured from Finland has been kept lying idle for more than two years. The service at Sagar Mahal has not been improved at all even as the department plans to hand over it to a private party.

People, who are visiting or want to visit Neermahal are deeply unhappy by the abrupt hike in the entry free. "Who will visit Neermahal by spending Rs. 30 per head where not much is not left for us! The department must improve infrastructure before increasing entry fee", said an aggrieved tourist.
