NDTV has launched a campaign '7 Wonders of India', in alliance with the Ministry of Tourism's 'Incredible India' campaign. The campaign will feature the seven best natural and man-made buildings in the country.
The campaign will also provide a platform for the citizens of India to choose the 'wonders' in their state. It will launch in September 2008 and will be held over a period of one year. A series of features on nominated heritage properties will be telecast on NDTV. The activity will be highlighted through a mass-media campaign.
The campaign is supported by State Bank of India and Tata Indicom. The State Governments across the country will also participate in all ground activities.
