Title: Need to grant special funds for development of tourism in Kerala.- Laid.

*SHRI P.C. THOMAS (MUVATTUPUZHA): Tourism is an industry which can flourish without pollution. In densely populated States with adequate scope for Tourism special assistance should be given to develop Tourism. Kerala is such a State with immense beauty and scope for Tourism. The backwaters, the hilly areas, waterfalls, evergreen attractive spots, etc. are plenty in Kerala.

The Eastern areas of Kottayam district have `Elaveezha Poonchira' Ellickal Kallu, Ayyampara, Mechal, Waghamon and other places with immense Tourism prospects. The Government should send a special team to study about these areas. If infrastructure like roads are developed by the Government with special Tourism Development Funds, other developments will follow. The Government should immediately take positive action in this regard.
