    congrates to arunachal pradesh and tawang monastery.

    this will help to pull some crowd to our state. hope the state govt. frame easy and tourist friendly norms.we still lack basic infrastructure for tourist, starting with ILP(inner line pass). south india still doesnt have any Residence Commissioner.bangalore and chennai needs one.I dont see much point in keeping Residence Commissioner in tezpur,jorhat,dibrugarh. other than they being the entry point to the state.

    when PAN( permanent account number) can go online why not our IPL.

    "when PAN( permanent account number) can go online why not our IPL"

    Good thought Dorjee. Easier process of applying for ILP would indeed boost tourism in our state, is what I feel too.

    Let's see how much naming of Tawang Monastery as Spiritual Wonder of India helps boost tourism in our state.
