Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Highlighting Madhya Pradesh as a tourist destination, Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya (DAVV) vice-chancellor prof.

Rector Sharma highlighted that new innovation must be a part of higher education so that youths can be acquainted with the various historical sites and their importance which brings ancient knowledge to light.

Registrar Sharma focused on finding new innovative ways to improve tourism in Madhya Pradesh which, he said, has more opportunities than other states; but, for achieving that, what is need is to enhance the branding of MP tourism.
