Government of Jammu and Kashmir has decided to set up India’s best theme park near Vaishno Devi temple at Katra that will increase the footfall of tourists as well as provide employment opportunities for the youth of the UT.

Based on a vision of adventure, mythology, education and entertainment, the officials of the administration and the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board have identified three possible locations for the project – two near the shrine and another 10 km from the Katra bus stop.

The park will come up on the way to the shrine and will have full connectivity, the officials said, adding that it would provide recreational activities for the pilgrims post-‘darshan’.

J&K government would also provide other benefits like outdoor and indoor art and entertainment, shops, sports and activities, rides and games, food and beverages across formats and hotels and stays, the officials said.

They said investors would be eligible for central sector scheme benefits and various other concessions from the UT government, including a contract valid for 25 years with a provision of extension.

Sources said the J&K administration would ensure all UT level clearances within 30 days of filing of application and would also provide support on other clearances and approvals, water at Rs 0.50 per cubic metre, power starting at Rs 3.85 per unit, besides additional incentives on stamp duty and green industrialisation.
