Delhi 'in the hunt for world heritage status

More travellers could be tempted to book cheap flights to Delhi if the Indian capital's attempt to become the first world heritage-rated city in the country proves successful.

According to the Times of India, heritage organisation the India National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage has submitted an application to the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) calling for Delhi to be included on Unesco's nomination list.

However, the city will have to overcome stiff competition from Ahmedabad if it is to land the prestigious recognition.
