The program is helping state governments build the basic infrastructure for tourism while encouraging private companies to provide services and facilities. Work is also being done to help manage India''s many heritage sites and to encourage greater local community participation tourist activities. This includes an emphasis on bring tourism-related facilities to remote communities. The program is primarily focused on the states of Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, and Uttarakhand (the three main states of the North West Himalayan Heritage Circuit) and Tamil Nadu (the anchor state of the South Heritage Circuit).
