Government of India has sanctioned `125.00 lakh to India Tourism Development Corporation Ltd (ITDC) to organize sound & light show programme at Udaigiri caves in Orissa. ITDC implemented the project and the trial run was held in April, 2008. However, due to conservation issues raised by Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), the show was not commissioned. ITDC has now submitted a concept paper for an alternative sound & light show at Udaigiri.Development and promotion of tourism is undertaken primarily by the State Governments/Union Territory Administrations. The Ministry of Tourism extends Central Financial Assistance to the State Governments/Union Territory Administrations for tourism related projects, which are identified in consultation with them, under various tourism schemes of the Ministry, in accordance with the scheme guidelines, inter-se-priority and availability of funds.
