One of the officials said that after online booking for entry to all the ASI-protected world heritage sites, the facility will be extended in a phased manner for the other ticketed monuments.
ASI has 116 ticketed monuments in India, of which 10 are in Delhi, including three world heritage sites. As of now, it’s not clear that when exactly the e-ticketing will be rolled out in other monuments. However, the Culture Ministry was looking into the plans and targeting extending e-ticketing within the next two to three months.
Every year, renowned sites like Qutub Minar and Red Fort witness a lot of visitors. Many officials believe that e-ticketing would go a long way in improving tourist services. One of the senior ASI officials said that world heritage sites are a priority, after which they will look at expanding the service to other monuments as well.
