In the wake of the state government's budget announcement, the Tourism Department has swiftly set the wheels in motion for the development of the Maharana Pratap Tourist Circuit. Just a week after the budget declaration in February, the department has taken decisive steps by appointing the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation (RTDC) to prepare the Detailed Project Report (DPR).  

RTDC will gather reports from various companies, laying the groundwork for activities such as establishing museums, enhancing basic amenities for tourists, and improving overall connectivity at these tourist sites.

The allocated budget for this ambitious project is Rs 100 crore, focusing on key locations associated with Maharana Pratap's life. Initially, places like Udaipur, Chawand, Haldighati, Gogunda, Kumbhalgarh, Dewar were included. Responding to public demand, Chhapli and Chittorgarh have now been added to the circuit.

The Maharana Pratap Circuit marks the third phase of development, with a historical background dating back to 2005. The project, formerly known as the Mewar Complex, had budgets of Rs 675 Lakh and Rs 767.23 Lakh approved for the first and second phases, respectively. As the third phase commences in its 19th year, the circuit's name has been changed to reflect its focus on Maharana Pratap's legacy.

With previous phases receiving financial support from the Central Government, the initiative looks set to continue making significant strides in preserving and promoting the rich cultural and historical heritage of the region.
