Over 80 high-profile applicants for DTTDC top post
Delhi government has received applications from over 80 eminent people including corporate honchos and social activists for the post of chairman of the Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation (DTTDC), which has been lying vacant since long.
In order to boost tourism sector in the national capital, Delhi government invited applications for the post of chairman of DTTDC in June. This initiative was a first as earlier the post was occupied by political leaders. “We have got close to 88 applications for the top post of DTTDC and we are in the process of scanning and scrutinising them. Our objective is to revive tourism in Delhi and boost other tourism organisations in the city. We are looking for someone who can revive economy and generate employment in this sector,” Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra said.
