No plan to hand over monuments to private firms for upkeep:

Union Minister Prahlad Patel on Friday said there was no plan to hand over archaeological

monuments to private firms for upkeep. The Union minister for tourism (independent charge)

told reporters here that under his ministry's 'Adopt a Heritage: Apni Dharohar, Apni Pehchaan' scheme, each private

firm is given two monuments, one of their choice and the other chosen by the ministry.

"The company that puts in money is not allowed to conserve the two monuments. It will be done by the ASI. The

company will provide amenities to tourists and can put up a billboard," Patel said.

"Private companies will not be given archaeological monuments (for upkeep). These companies can only provide

public amenities at the sites. The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) will conserve monuments. The role of private

companies and non-government institutions at such sites is limited," he added.

Patel inspected the Indian Institution of Tourism and Travel Management here.
