Tourist tracking: DMRC, DTTDC join hands to promote tourism in Delhi

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and the Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation (DTTDC) on Wednesday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the purpose of jointly promoting tourism and facilitating tourist visits in the capital.
The MoU was signed here at Metro Bhawan by DMRC director (operations) Sharat Sharma and DTTDC MD and CEO G G Saxena in the presence of DMRC managing director Mangu Singh and a host of other dignitaries.

As per the MoU, DMRC and DTTDC will help each other in providing tourist-friendly information and promoting tourism in the city through their services, a DMRC spokesperson said.
As a part of this MoU, DMRC will undertake the following initiatives, DMRC will identify locations at five Metro stations for opening of DTTDC information counters. The project will be started from the Dwarka Metro Station.

DMRC will publicise the products and projects of DTTDC through banners and standees. For this, DMRC will identify spaces at prominent metro stations including Metro Museum at Patel Chowk Metro Station, based on operational feasibility.
With a view to preventing tourists from being overcharged by auto drivers and as an added passenger convenience, the concept of 'rent a bicycle' will be explored for implementation at Saket Metro Station. DMRC will arrange to make announcements in Metro Trains informing the commuters about important events being organised by DTTDC in Delhi.

A DMRC spokesperson said that Delhi Metro will facilitate tourists on Saturday and Sunday by providing seats.
