Gujarat can be divided into three geographical regions: the eastern region that has the major cities of Ahmedabad, Surat and Vadodra; the Saurashtra region between the Gulf of Cambay and the Gulf of Kutch; the northern region of Kutch which is a salty desert.
This is the most industrialised state in the country and contributes about one-fifth of the total industrial output of India. It does particularly well in textiles and electronics, and has the largest petrochemical complex in India. Though Gandhinagar is the capital of the state, Ahmedabad, its former capital, is commercially and historically the most important city, containing Gujarat's only international airport. It's famous for its architectural heritage mosques and mausoleums in a fusion of Hindu and Islamic traditions and ornate step-wells called baolis in the local language. Surat is a centre of diamond polishing and trade and Vadodara is an erstwhile princely estate.
On the coast of Gujarat are some beaches including the old port-town of Mandvi, but the famous coastal spots are the temples of Somnath and Dwarka. The ancient temple at Somnath was repeatedly plundered and the present structure dates to 1950s, but it carries ancient sanctity for Hindu devotees. The popular 16th-century temple at Dwarka is devoted to Lord Krishna and associated with Meerabai. The town of Palitana is famous for its more than 800 Jain temples, some of them as old as the 11th century. At Lothal are the ruins of an ancient port of the Indus Valley civilization dating from 2400BC. The Sasan Gir National Park in Gujarat is the only place where the Asiatic Lion still survives. The Wild Ass sanctuary in the Little Rann of Kutch is a World Heritage site.
In another aggressive move to promote tourism in the state, Gujarat Tourism Corporation, has tied up with IL&FS in a joint venture to form Gujarat Tourism Opportunity (GUJTOP). Under this JV, GUJTOP will oversee 50 tourism projects of which 39 have been identified across six major segments. Eleven beach tourism projects, six business tourism projects, seven eco tourism projects, three religious tourism projects, one rural and cultural tourism project and 11 projects to develop wayside amenities have been earmarked under GUJTOP. Sanjay Joshi, VP, IL&FS and director of GUJTOP, informed, “Information dissemination has already begun with advertisements in the newspapers. Interested companies can apply with a submission of last two years finance audits, brief on their tourism concept and their capabilities in the field.”
GUJTOP will scan the offers and the shortlisted companies will be invited to sign the MoU at the Vibrant Gujarat Summit to be held in January 2011. A Request for Proposal will the be issued with the project details. The bidding process will held be for the land which will be available on a long term lease, as specified under the GID Act of 1999. “GUJTOP will also have a special cell which will see to the matters of closure of deals and facilities and provide a Single Window Mechanism for smooth completion of the project,” Joshi added. The entire process should be completed within seven to eight months, he added.
Speaking of the reason behind setting up GUJTOP, Vipul Mittra, secretary, Tourism, Civil Aviation, SSI, Pilgrimage & Devasthan (Industries and Mines Department), Government of Gujarat, said, “We wanted to simply cut through the red tape and re-affirm Gujarat’s status as an investor friendly state.” He further added that this is part of a three pronged growth strategy to promote tourism in the state of Gujarat. An aggressive marketing campaign is the first part, where the Amitabh Bachchan campaign has been a great success and there has been a noted increase in tourism, post the airing of the ads. The second is to built stronger infrastructure.
“With a strong marketing campaign and increased interest in the state, we should be able to deliver on the claims that we are making; the GUJTOP project is part of this,” he explained. The third is to develop proactive policies allowing the private sector to come into the state and invest. “We have already created special tourism zones in the state. Electricity charges for hotel units will be on industrial basis and not commercial. This will be applicable for the first ten years of the unit. There will be subsidy on interest for new units as well. We will also look at the development and upgradation of heritage properties in the state,” he said.
