New Delhi: More than 3000 year old city, Delhi will soon be featuring on the World Heritage Map. In this regard, the Delhi Tourism & Transportation Development Corporation (DTTDC) prepared a proposal and sent it to UNSECO via Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).

However, due to loopholes in the framework, the proposal was returned to ASI. A committee has been formed to work on the proposal which will be resent to UNESCO.

None of the other cities in India could make it through the category of World Heritage city which already has 226 cities of the world in the list.

For the first time, the Delhi government along with the Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation (DTTDC) is going to apply for nomination of Delhi to UNESCO's list of world heritage cities.

Rich in monumental heritage, the national capital has three world heritage sites, Qutub Minar, Red Fort and Humayun's Tomb. There are about 1,200 ancient monuments in the city.

Delhi Tourism MD G G Saxena said, “We have submitted the proposal to UNESCO through ASI for entitling Delhi with the status of a world heritage city. Due to technical faults in the proposal ASI has withdrawn the proposal and Ministry of Art and Culture has formed an advisory committee to be led by Sujit Banarjee to look into the flaws in the proposal. A meeting in this regard is scheduled to be held this month.
