To finance much-needed water quality improvements in Hussain Sagar Lake in Hyderbad, park authorities should consider increasing the entry fee for enjoying this well-used lake from its current level of INR 10 to enter Lumbini Park to at least INR 20 per visit. This will boost yearly revenues by 80% and provide financial resources that can be used to clean the lake and its surroundings. This, in turn, will increase visitor numbers and further enhance revenues. According to administrators, lack of funding is one of the main obstacles to lake restoration. Visitors are willing to pay a higher fee for recreation - thus, by increasing the fees, this obstacle can be removed.
