The government will launch a pilot project in December next, aiming to bring tourism management in the Sundarbans under automation with a smart app.
Using the app, ‘Sundarbans’, one can get all the travel formalities done sitting at home. This will not only save the time of travellers but also ensure hassle-free booking process and make things easier for the forest department to provide better services to tourists.
According to the Forest Department, this automation programme on Sundarbans travel management is being implemented under the Skill Development Project of Mobile Games and Applications by the Department of Information and Communication Technology.
Mihir Kumar Dey, the forest conservator of Khulna region, said, “The Sundarbans tourism management is being automated as part of building a Digital Bangladesh. It’s being implemented under the A2I programme of the Prime Minister's Office.”
