    NEW DELHI: Narendra Modi’s plans to popularise the ancient heritage of his constituency Varanasi may be on mission mode but the city has yet again lost an opportunity to be listed among Unesco World Heritage cities. Varanasi does not figure even in the shortlist of cities that could be nominated as a world heritage city by the Unesco, officials at the ministry of culture said.

    NEW DELHI: The capital’s chance to become the first ‘world heritage city’ in India has been scuppered. On Thursday, the Centre withdrew Delhi’s nomination for a Unesco World Heritage City tag without assigning any reason, abruptly ending a long quest that involved more than a decade of planning followed by meticulous preparation over the past five years. The decision shocked conservationists and heritage lovers as it came just a month before Unesco’s review of nominations from across the world.

  2. Hi, I googled to find out that there are approximately 200 countries in the world. How can you have buyers from 400 countries then? I think your facts are incorrect.

    • Hi Saurav, you are right. The headline was factually wrong. It should have read this, “400 buyers from countries around the world” and not buyers from 400 countries. Thanks for point this oversight. We’ve corrected the piece now.
