Aurangabad: State tourism minister Vijaykumar Gavit on Tuesday declared Aurangabad as the tourism capital of Maharashtra and announced 50 per cent tax concessions for the hospitality industry to tide over off-season problems.

The Aurangabad Heritage Corridor will be marketed in the world,especially in Buddhist countries,said Gavit while addressing the valedictory function of the two-day Aurangabad tourism conclave organised by the Maharashtra Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture (MACCIA).

Aurangabad and Marathwada region account for the largest number of monuments in the state,including world heritage monuments Ajanta and Ellora.
Various tourist facilities were coming up in the district,including a golf course,Gavit said,adding that these facilities should be brought under the spotlight to attract tourist flow.

Stating that Maharashtra was set to celebrate 2011 as tourism year,he said a core committee has been formed to decide on the direction the tourism sector in the state needed to adopt.MACCIA president Mansingh Pawaar is a member of the core committee,Gavit said.
