    Govt subsidy for pilgrimage to SL, Angkor Wat temple - Times Of India

    BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh government has expanded the subsidy scheme for pilgrimage to places of religious importance in other countries. Now, after pilgrimage journeys to religious places in China and Pakistan, the State Government will now provide 50% subsidy on expenses (maximum Rs. 30,000) to the state's citizens for the journey to pilgrim centres in Sri Lanka and Cambodia.

    Six years ago, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had taken the initiative of scheme for providing financial assistance to citizens of the state for pilgrimage to Kailash Mansarovar. A beneficiary pilgrim has to make claim for reimbursement within 60 days after the journey to Madhya Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation along with details of expenses.

    Under the scheme, a domicile of Madhya Pradesh is eligible to avail this subsidy once in lifetime. The Corporation has granted subsidy to 113 citizens of the state for pilgrimage to Kailash Mansarovar.

    Only those pilgrims of the state are entitled to get subsidy under the scheme whose selection for pilgrimage is made by the Union Government. Since the year 2007-08, the State Government has also introduced a provision of providing subsidy for pilgrimage to Hinglaj Mata Mandir and Nankana Saheb situated in Pakistan.

    A person desirous of pilgrimage to Sita Mandir (Sri Lanka) and Angkor Wat (Cambodia) will have to apply to Managing Director, Madhya Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation, Bhopal. The Corporation will make payment after examining the documents. Rules and instructions to this effect have been issued by the Principal Secretary, Religious Trusts and Endowments.

    So what. If govt can give Haj subsidy then pilgrimages for Hindu, Sikh, Christians, etc also should be covered. Either give for all or none

    There was a report recently that the Govt. wants to scale back the Haj Subsidy, and now this. If the Govt. wants to do something for the pilgrims then they should limit themselves to keeping a check on unscrupulous travel agents and if the tourist spot is getting thousands of Indian visitors then maybe a small consulate to take care in emergencies.

    Congress did fir Muslims and BJP is doing for Hindus. Hence, Tit for Tat.

    There should be NO Subsidy for any religion.

    This is :bs: cancel all subsides for Religious traveling what is the meaning of a Secular state ?

    That's govt does not accept or support any religion or oppose any in same time so why we need to pay for some god feared moron with our Tax ? Haj or other all should be canceled.

    Exactly, the amount spent on all such subsidies comes from 'somewhere' right? Can someone guess what the probable sources could be ? :confused:
    Hint: It’s not from the sycophant politicos purse.

    But then populist vote bank schemes dont give us our daily meal. We "peasants" and "tax slaves" need to work to earn a living. The "great ones" to whom it does matter will see red if such subsidies are quashed. :yell:

    :doh: we oppose any form subsidy be it to Hindus or to Muslims. We are not biased and btw, it is BJP which is giving the sop and not Cons. Cons won't do any thing to favour the Hindus

    Nice, I think will be taking advantage of this. Always wanted to visit my Buddhist arya brethren in Lanka and Kambujadesa (Cambodia).

    Long Live Greater Aryavarta.
