The programme will start form Friday at 5.00 pm at Gangotri Collectorate.
DM Uttarkashi directed the officials to work for the success of the programme seriously and there should be no negligence while conducting the programme.

Bird watching will prove a milestone in attracting nature loving people and tourists to the region and would also help in curbing migration through employment generating activities created by it.
