From the update on the Heritage Walk fee hike to the upcoming Divya Kala Shakti Talent Show in Vastral to LAN Esports tournament final taking place in the city and more, catch what's happening through this Ahmedabad News Roundup.
Heritage Walk fee hike reversed
The responsibility of organizing the heritage walk was entrusted to Akshar Travels, a private agency, by the World Heritage City Trust. According to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the agency was authorized to charge 200 from an Indian citizen and 300 from a foreign national for participating in heritage walks.
However, concerns arose during the Standing Committee meeting on Thursday when the agency began charging 400 from an Indian citizen and 500 from a foreign national. Swift action was taken, and the fee hike was promptly reversed, acknowledging that more money was collected through this adjustment.
Divya Kala Shakti set for January 1 in Vastral
A talent show named Divya Kala Shakti is scheduled for January 1 in Vastral, a collaborative effort between the CRC Center at Odhav and the Central Government. The event aims to support various Central Government schemes focused on the skill development of differently-abled individuals.
