Madhya Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation has decided to avail ultramodern techniques like quick response code (QRC) and near field communication (NFC) to domestic and foreign tourists in their own languages.

Following in-principal sanction by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, it has been decided to use these techniques at Khajuraho and Orchha tourist destinations.

The scheme, quick response code will be embedded at the entrance of these heritage centres. For this, tourist will have to install QR code application on their smart phones or i-Pad. After scanning this code, tourists will get detailed information about concerning tourist destination.

Through QRC, tourists can enjoy facilities on their mobile tourist destination’s videos, pictures, historic background through voice recording and video films. In the beginning, this information will be available in five languages including Hindi, English, Japanese, French and Chinese (Mandarin).

Similarly, near field communication (NFC) is a technique under which entire information will be contained in a microchip actually powered by radio frequency field of the NFC-enabled smart phone. Through this technique, tourists will be able to obtain information about the heritage through digital map, roadmaps and other facilities.
