But there’s one fact that is making this system extremely amazing and it is that this tranquil endeavor of the ASI shall greatly reduce the cases of fraudsters and hawkers who sell black tickets or used tickets.

And one great thing that this news beholds is that ASI plans to undertake the same plan with each serene monument under it’s direct control.

This is one great step towards an exclusive technological era and the tourism industry will grow immensely because of such endeavors.

So, now there’s no worry for tourists who desire to take a gander at the Taj Mahal. It’s simply a work of imagination and fingers on your mobile.
