Delhi’s World Heritage Bid Withdrawn

Delhi’s bid to become the nation’s first world heritage city has been withdrawn. Over a decade of planning and five years of preparation later, the Centre took back Delhi’s nomination for a Unesco world heritage city tag, according to an announcement on the UN body’s website on Thursday , reports Richi Verma.

Embarrassingly for India, the withdrawal means there will be no Indian nomination (in either the cultural or natural category) that will be reviewed next month during the world heritage committee session in Bonn.No official reason has been given for the decision.
