The project was implemented under the Tourism Ministry’s Swadesh Darshan scheme launched in 2014-15 for development of thematic circuits in the country in a planned and prioritized manner. The government had decided to include Chhattisgarh in the scheme under tribal circuit theme with an objective to acknowledge the sovereignty of tribes and to promote the rich and diverse primitive assets in the state.
