Come monsoon, we might be looking at a whole new dimension to tourism–mining tourism. The Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation is planning to start package tours on a revenue sharing basis. The mining circuit will cover Yavatmal, Nagpur and Chandrapur mining zones. The proposed three-hour-long tour will allow 20 tourists to enter the mines along with an official guide and be informed about the different types of mining, underground mining, open-cast mining, coal handling plants as well as mining electronics. Being the third largest coal producer in the world, this seems to be a fitting opportunity for adults to go back to their sooty-kneed days, imaginary or otherwise. And, of course, get familiar with one of India’s largest industries. Jharkhand has also been toying with a similar idea for quite a while now.
