Morena, MP, Sep 25 (UNI) A work plan would be chalked out by the Eco-Development Board (EDB) along with the Madhya Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (MPTDC) in a bid to attract tourists to the Chambal Sanctuary.

''In the coming days, the Chambal Sanctuary would witness a spurt in the number of domestic and foreign tourists,'' Divisional Forest Officer S P Sharma said here today.

EDB and MPTDC officials visited the sanctuary sprawling over an area of 435 sq km across Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.

Besides 'gharial', which is facing threat of extinction, crocodiles, dolphins and other migratory birds inhabit the sanctuary, which was established in 1992.

He said construction of a wooden platform in the middle of Chambal river was underway to lure tourists.

A modern restaurant would also come up.

Mr Sharma said hoarding would be put up at National Highways and railway stations to attract tourists.
