New Delhi: If everything goes as per plan, people will be able to take a glance of Delhi from an aerial view soon. Adding cherry to the cream, people will not have to shell out a whopping amount for the chopper ride to get an aerial view of ‘Diwalo ki Dilli’.

The Delhi Tourism and Transport Development Corporation along with Pawan Hans Helicopter Limited are mulling over the plan.
Under this project, people can admire Delhi from a 5, 000 feet height. The tickets would cost around Rs 2,000 per passenger so that they are not burdened with much fare.

According to G G Saxena, Managing Director Delhi Tourism, the scheme is in preliminary stages. “We have spoken to Pawan Hans and they are ready for this plan. But, we have to take permission from the Indian Army and Civil Aviation Ministry before giving it a final shape,” said Saxena.

Under the project, the helipad constructed near the Commonwealth Games Village will be used or else heliport in Rohini constructed by the company can be utilized.

According to sources, helicopter can be hired for Rs 1 lakh per hour and eight people can sit on one chopper at a time.

It is worth mentioning that similar kind of scheme is functional in Andaman and Nicobar Islands where tourists can admire the beauty of the Union Territory from a height.
