Government of India and Government of France have already signed the MOU in the year 2012 to develop all the cities which have heritage buildings in our country,” he said.

“By having City to City Cooperation between Chartres City projects we can preserve heritage buildings without having any damages. Due to Globalization and Privatization we can see lot of changes and can easily find the heritage building of other countries too. By having this programme in the city we can save all heritage buildings for future. Due to fail of industrialization in Mysuru we can save our tourism places and heritage buildings,” he added.
