Visit any monument or national park in India and you will find two rates, one for desis and the other for the foreigners. My most recent experience has been at the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary. Now if we believe The Times of India, this may soon be a thing of past. Great, do it fast I say!
An order issued by PM Manmohan Singh will put an end to the double-tariff regime seen by foreign tourists and even expatriates as an act of hurting discrimination.
For some time now, the Prime Minister’s Office has been receiving complaints from Indian missions abroad and through other channels about the discriminatory tariff regime that visiting foreigners are subjected to.
India is one of the few countries where a foreigner needs to pay more for checking into a hotel, air travel, subscribing to periodicals and even to visit historical monuments.
