2 min read

Mysuru: Mysuru Travels Association (MTA) on Friday submitted a memorandum to the  district administration urging to revoke the prohibitory orders on visting tourist places in the city during Dasara.

Members of Mysuru Travels Association and Hotel Owners Association along with a few other tourism dependent organisations held a joint press conference and explained the impact of restrictions on stakeholders of tourism.
MTA representative B S Prashanth told that “the closure of tourist attractions and monuments from October 17 to November 1 will have a more impact after Corona induced lockdown that has rendered many spineless”.
The district administration has decided to restrict entry to tourist attractions and monuments in and around Mysuru citing the anticipation of more number of tourists in the city despite Covid-19 crises.
The tourism industry is already reeling under distress due to the impact of Covid lockdown and will face further downfall beyond recovery by this move of the district administration. Not only the stakeholders and dependent families of the tourism industry, but also many other beneficiaries like restaurants, street vendors, auto rickshaw operators, local artisans, local businessmen will have to suffer due to this decision.
The Department of Tourism invites the tourists with a message “Karnataka is safe to travel”, but on the other hand the district administration has closed down the tourist attractions. When there is no entry at tourist spots, monuments, no tourists will have the city on their itinerary.
What is the use of illuminating around more than 50 km of roads in Mysuru? Not only Mysuru, even the district administration of Mandya has decided to close down
Brindavan Gardens at KRS, Srirangapatna and other tourist spots in Mandya District.
As per unlock five guidelines, there is no mention of closing down the tourist spots, as many of the sports and entertainment sectors have been permitted to reopen. Many of the tourists have made their travel plans to visit Mysuru this Dasara and they will have nothing to see in Mysuru and will feel disappointed, they claimed. 
Representatives of Mysuru Travel Association , Hotel Owners Association – Mysore , Mysore District Tourist Vehicle Drivers and Owners Welfare Association , Mysore Approved Tourist Guides Association , Mysuru District Tourist Bus Owners Association and Mysuru District and City Maxi Cab Owners Welfare Association have also condemned the district administration’s decision and decided to submit a memorandum to DC. All the organisationsare  demanding to take back the order or revoke the restrictions.
