NEW DELHI, Dec 5 (Agencies): The Centre has assured the Jammu and Kashmir government support under its flagship tourism programme 'Incredible India', an official spokesman said today.

The central government has also called for roping in business and corporate houses for facilitating promotion of tourism in the state, he said.

Director General, Tourism Ministry, Satyajeet Rajan has suggested that the International Travel Mart be held in the state's summer capital Srinagar around the Tulip Season in March, the spokesman said.

Rajan had given this assurance at a high-level meeting convened in Jammu last evening to review the progress of tourism projects in J&K under the Prime Minister's Developmental Package (PMDP).

Under the package, Rs 2,000 Cr has been earmarked for development of tourism infrastructure in the state, the spokesman said.

These funds are to be spent over a period of five years beginning 2016 with Rs 400 Cr to be released by the Centre each year, he said.

Rajan suggested that corporate bodies such as the CII and the FICCI should be involved by the state for the promotion of tourism and said that support under Incredible India would be provided to J&K.
