In 11 months, Statue of Unity got 26 lakh visitors
GANDHINAGAR: More than 26 lakh tourists visited the Statue of Unity (SoU) since it was inaugurated less than a year ago and the project earned revenue of Rs 71.66 crore.
At 182m, the statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel located beside the Narmada dam, is the tallest statue in the world. It was inaugurated on October 31, 2018 by PM Narendra Modi.
Statue of Unity which was mostly funded by PSUs has become a great tourist spot in Gujarat.
Well done PM. this was a real gift to our great Nation

If each of the 26Lakh people visiting would have spent Rs. 1000 while reaching there, staying in a hel or buying something etc. etc. then we are talking about additional Rs. 260 Crores pumped in due to tourism thereby generating Jobs!! So overall more than 330 Crores earned within 1 year!!! Scamgress and Jaichands of India who were crying their heart out on money spent to build this statue obviously will not like this progress of local people around!!! Modi is a visionary and he is creating opportunities for everyone with a long term view!! Blessed to have such a PM in India!!
All idiots who are praising this news...first check per day footfall of mere 8000 people/day in 11 months..after investing 3500 crore plus daily expenses put together..its a loss of tax payers money..We can see more footfall in any mandir in India everyday..
Its a symbol of Modinomics!!
5-7 years it will recover it cost.
71.66 crores in eleven months.And what''s the investment-3000 crores on the statue alone plus the additional cost of building the infrastructure to make the statue accessible.From the point of view of pure economics,the interest loss that keeps on adding to the investment outlay for ever would only bloat up the cost.
