Governor Punjab, Chaudhry Sarwar, has approved rental of the estate to the Governor House for commercial purposes.
The state property is now available for rent, according to media reports, for corporate and wedding activities, photoshoots, concerts and other events. For reservations, interested persons may contact the Governor House. In addition, for this reason an online portal will also be developed.
The decision has come months after the Governor House was opened for public. To generate income from state property, the Governor House’s management has also finalized a business plan and forwarded it to Prime Minister Imran Khan for approval.
It was proposed that the lawns of the house should be rented out for Rs. 1 million a day for events, Rs. 200,000 for photoshoots and Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 50,000 for lodging in different rooms of historical significance.
At the moment, people with the right contacts are availing these facilities for free. Most of the time, the beautiful lake of the Governor House is used for photoshoots. Moreover, the lawns are used to organize the corporate events of chambers of commerce and various trade associations.
