Three battery-operated cars has been introduced by the state as part of its eco-tourism promotion campaign and ensuring a healthy environment at the most-visited tourist place in the region, the officials said.

The department has procured the eco-friendly vehicles that will keep a check on carbon footprints and allow the tourists to enjoy a ride around the lake, which is, otherwise, very difficult because of its long distance.
