  • Of late reserving tickt on line has become very difficult even impossible.Lot of time & money on internet is wasted wiyhout any sucees as after logging & filling some details server doesnot respond & whole exersice is to be repeated several times w/o any result.

  • Agreed with Mr yogesh,there are lot of to be done on this wedsite.one dedicated staff should be deputed for upgradition and cn answer of public comments otherwise inauguration by the CM does not have any meaning.Secondly the booking counter at HP Bhawan needs to be facelift and should have some modern touch to attaract tourists.

  • none of the links provided in the article takes u to the website. the website is horrendous with no information available after registration..
