New Delhi: An entity among the seven wonders in the world – the Taj Mahal soon going to be carpeted under layered security services for safety reasons. Till now visitors from across the world used to get their tickets online or offline without any limit. But now the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) is likely to implement the order soon keeping safety in the Taj premises during day and night.

The order says that only thirty thousand limited visitors can enter the Taj premises for a day/night. Tickets will be served on first cum first serve basis like Indian Railways Ticketing services. Ministry officials said that the sale of tickets - both online and offline - will be stopped at the 30,000 mark.

Many times, during peak tourist season and other occasions, the number of tourists inside the complex crosses 60,000 to 70,000 per day.

A high level conference meeting was held between the Culture Secretary Ravindra Singh yesterday with ASI officials and representatives of Agra district administration and officers of the Central Industrial Security Force, where the decision was taken regarding security measures for one of the greatest 17th century Mughal monument of India.

As of now, there is no restriction on the number of people entering the iconic monument complex at any point of time. The average footfall at the monument has increased at a rate of 10-15 per cent per annum, a source in the culture ministry told PTI.

The ASI is also likely to introduce a system to issue "zero-value" tickets to children below the age of 15 years, enabling them to keep a count of the number of such visitors, whose entry will remain free.

So guys next time plan your trip accordingly for the masterpiece of the world heritage – the Taj Mahal.
