No mention of Regional Museum on govt websites
The heritages monuments in Nashik are struggling for identity in a heritage city like Nashik. The newly erected and restored Regional Museum of Nashik, Sarkarawada, has no place in both the important websites of government. The website Nashik corporation.in and nashik.gov.in, though the museum has been taken in Smart City’s convergence project.
The curator of the museum had written a letter collectorate as well as to the corporation but no answer has been given by both the agencies to date. The latter dated on May 22, 2019, was sent by the Regional Museum Office, for requesting to mention Sarkarwada in their website.
The letter states, “The footfall of visitors on Goda Ghat is very high. Tourists from every corner of state and country visit the place. The structure is 250 years old and represents the heritage and culture of the city. In order to highlight the place for tourists, it should be displayed on the website, nashik.gov.in and Nashik corporation.in.”
The letter has further stated that the move will help to increase the footfall of the tourists in the museum. It helps to spread the word about the culture and heritage of the city as various artifacts related to the history of the place are there for display.
“We have requested both government agencies about mentioning the Sarkarawada on their websites. We have written a letter to the Nashik District Collector as well as the Nashik Municipal Commissioner. The website nashik.gov.in and Nashik corporation.in, respectively are very important for us”, said sources from Regional Museum Curator.
Source added, “Whenever one searches for Nashik these two most important websites pop-up and the person gets information about Nashik. In such a condition there should be some mention or photograph of the Sarakarwada. The corporation has taken the Sarkarawada in its Smart City project but has neglected it on their website.”
The sources from the Smart City project informed that the project has been mentioned in the convergence project on the website Nashik smart city.in, but has not been taken on the official website of the corporation. The negligence of government agencies towards the government developed project may result in the killing of such projects the agencies should work together for revenue generation of government.
