To,  All Members, 

Dear Colleagues, 

Sub: Bulk Purchase of ASI monuments entry ticket for Agra Monuments 
 
This is further reference to our email sent yesterday regarding purchase of ASI Monument tickets after 15th December 2016 and the problems thereon. The matter was taken up with Hon’ble Minister for Tourism and Culture for his intervention after our meeting with DG ASI and some alternative arrangements were suggested. 
 
As for all the other monuments tickets are available for purchase online, except for some monuments in Agra, especially Fatehpur Sikri, Agra Fort and Itimad-ul-Daula’s Tomb, the Hon’ble Minister for Tourism has given his directives to allow purchase of tickets in Agra in Bulk with payments through Demand Drafts with immediate effect.
 
Also there will not be any passport details required for bulk purchase.
 
If you find any problem or refusal at any of the monuments in Agra, same should be brought to the notice of IATO immediately.
 
In the meantime installation of Debit/Credit Card Swipe machines at the monuments are also being explored.
 
We shall keep you update with any further development in the matter.   
 
With best regards, 

Sincerely,  

Pronab Sarkar
President
