The primary function of the Tourism Department is to develop tourism infrastructure in the state. The development of tourism in public sector is done by way of funds received from the State Government in its annual/five year plans. In addition, the Tourism Department makes efforts to get maximum possible central financial assistance from Government of India for creation of tourism infrastructure. Once developed and furnished the tourist complexes are handed over to the Haryana Tourism Corporation for their maintenance and operation as an agent of the State Government.
The expenditure on the maintenance of infrastructure of tourist complexes is also borne by the Tourism Department for which funds are provided in the non-plan budget every year. Similarly, funds are also provided for publicity of the tourism infrastructure of the State. As on date the department has set up a network of 42 tourist complexes spreading all over the State.
