World heritage sites such as the Red Fort, the Taj Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri, Humayun's Tomb, and Ajanta and Ellora Caves, will soon get a new look.
This includes introduction of wi-fi services, a stocked cafeteria, Braille signage, modern toilets, drinking water, and other world class facilities.
The Centre has reached out to the corporate sector to adopt over 116 monuments of the Archaeological Survey of India.
