BELLARY, INDIA, June 10, 2001: The Cabinet will take a final decision on the formation of the Hampi Development Authority, according to the Minister for Tourism and Haj, Mr. Roshan Baig. The formation of the authority has become necessary following the fiat from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) that Hampi would be deleted from the list of World Heritage Sites if steps are not taken to protect the ancient monuments. The UNESCO has included Hampi in the list of World Heritage Sites in Danger'' following the construction of two bridges, encroachments on ancient monuments, and construction of "Janata" houses near the major monuments. The functions of the authority will include systematic development of Hampi, conservation of the monuments, clearing the encroachments and providing facilities for tourists.
