Vaishnodevi shrine area to have master plan for 40-50 years: N N Vohra

Jammu: The holy cave shrine of Mata Vaishnodevi in Jammu and Kashmir's Reasi district will have a master plan for the entire shrine area for a period of 40-50 years.

This decision was taken by J&K Governor N N Vohra, who is the Chairman of the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board, at the 58th meeting of the board held in New Delhi.

He stressed the need for preparing a master plan so that an adequately long-term perspective determines the scale and capacity of the infrastructural facilities which need to be provided for the pilgrims.

He observed that a well-planned approach in dealing with all aspects of the yatra has become extremely important to preserve the environment and keep a check on pollution.
