"The first stage of the project is under execution. The agency was finalised after floating of tenders and only one company participated in the process. It is being constructed on Built-Own-Operate-Transfer (BOOT) basis," she said.
The Mantalia-Sudhmahdev-Patnitop is being developed as an independent tourist circuit in the Jammu region at a cost of Rs 97.82 crore, she said.
Under the project, a Yoga centre, spa and an ayurvedic complex with a separate area for traditional Indian medicinal therapies and herbal garden are also being constructed, Sethi said.
The minister said that other infrastructure include a heliport, open air amphitheatre, CCTVs and jogging tracks.
The construction of the circuit has been entrusted to the National Projects Construction Corporation (NPCC). The master plan and design concept have been finalised by the Ministry of Tourism, she said.
