The funds will be used in repairing and developing two roads that connect two tourism spots - Chabimura and Tirthamuk - at Amarpur sub-division in Gomati district, about 75 kilometre from here, the minister told reporters here.
"An eight-km long road from near a lake at Fatiksagar in Amarpur town to Chabimura and a 20-km long road from Tirthamukh to Raishyabari in Dhalai district would be repaired and developed with the funds," the minister said.
Tirthamukh, the confluence of Raima and Sarma rivers, is considered a holy spot.
"We are trying to make Chabimura and Tirthamuk more attractive for the tourists. We will work on developing the roads, offer proper boating facility across the 14-km stretch of water body, build tourist cottages, arrange unique delicacies and more facilities for tourists," Singha Roy said.
The projects were approved at a meeting of the North East Special Infrastructure Development Scheme, an inter-ministerial body, in New Delhi last week, Singha Roy said.
