Agra, Aug 26 (IANS) American Express will help set up tourist centres with a 24x7 helpline for thousands of visitors who throng Agra.

The project is a joint venture between the Uttar Pradesh Tourism and Agra Tourism Guild and will be supported by American Express. Debashish Bhaumick, president of the guild, told a press conference Saturday that the centre was likely to come up in two months.

The guild, which completes 25 years in September, will also bring out a special publication called 'Agra Calling' which will contain all the relevant information about Agra.

Joint director of Uttar Pradesh Tourism D.K. Burman told IANS, 'The new facilities centre will help tourists get correct information about the city and its various monuments.'

'It is the most urgent and desirable project that will give a big boost to tourism and if successful the Agra model may be replicated in other parts of the country,' Burman added.
