Nehru Trophy Boat Race on September 4

The 68th edition of the Nehru Trophy Boat Race (NTBR) is likely to be held on September 4.

A meeting of the Nehru Trophy Boat Race Society held here on Monday decided to suggest the date to the government. P.P. Chitharanjan, MLA, said the date would be finalised after getting approval from the Tourism Department. Mr. Chitharanjan said the race would be conducted on full scale.
