In the recent past, some paragliders had alleged that the Tourism Department had imposed a ban on paragliding at Billing due to which several Indian and foreign pilots were left dejected.
The Tourism Department had, however, refuted the charges. While talking to The Tribune, Deputy Director Tourism, Pooja Chauhan said: “The state has not imposed any ban on paragliding in Billing. No Indian or foreign pilot has been prohibited from free flying at Billing. Any pilot with valid documents can obtain permission for free flying from SDM Baijnath.”
