Chopper services to Babadham from July 22

Ranchi: The state tourism department has received an overwhelming response to its unique plan of ferrying pilgrims in choppers to BaidyanathDham.
The first chopper would take off on July 22, a day before the month-long Shravani Mela begins.
Over 2000 interested pilgrims have so far contacted the organizers. The most interested in this service are women and old people. It is for the first time that pilgrims would be able to fly to Baidyanath Dham, offer pujas as a VIP would do and return home without any hassle. The tourism department has reached an agreement with the Deoghar district administration and those using choppers would be given special passes.
