  • Keen to give a fillip to tourism, the state government has stepped up efforts for setting up the Anandpur Sahib-Naina Devi ropeway which has been hanging fire for over a decade.
  • The process for appointing a technical consultant has now been entrusted to Himachal Pradesh Infrastructure Development Board (HPIDB).
  • Initially, the ropeway having a span of 2.5 km was supposed to have three terminal points – Rampur (lower), Toada (intermediate) and Naina Devi (upper). Later the span of the ropeway was increased to 3850 mts.
  • The project is expected to reduce the traffic congestion on the land route connecting the two pilgrim centres.
  • Thousands of people from Punjab and Haryana make a beeline to the hill top temple to pay their obeisance.
  • The cost of the project initially pegged at Rs 85 crore has now shot up to over Rs 100 crore
