Speaking to newspersons in Mysore Monday, he said British experts had recently visited Srirangapatna and identified some of the heritage cluster areas in the town and the same would be conserved.

Leading car manufacturer Mercedes had also come forward to fund the project and talks were still in the preliminary stage, he added.

Ramakrishna said work on documentation of heritage buildings in Mysore and Srirangapatna would be completed by March next. A draft regulation on heritage conservation would be submitted to the state government by March 2006.

Referring to heritage funds, he said there were plans to give income tax rebate for such funds. In all, 139 buildings have been identified in Mysore under the heritage list, he added.
