ABSTRACT:

Tourism in India

India’s tourism sector is witnessing an unprecedented growth, backed by the


increase in purchasing power of the Indian middle class, arrival of high-
spending foreign tourist’s as well as powerful government campaigns being
run promoting India as ‘Incredible India’.

Indian governmental bodies are being looked upon as prime drivers as each
and every state in India are obliged to establish a corporation to manage
support issues related to tourism.

Medical Tourism is yet another sunrise sector associated with the tourism
industry of India. The sector is currently growing at the rate of 30 percent
per annum. Tourists focusing on Indian medication are expected to reach
one million soon.

The tourism industry of India follows certain ideals which include: Swaagat
which means welcome, Sahyog which means cooperation, Soochanaa which
means information, Sanrachanaa which means infrastructure, Suvidha which
means facilitation, Safaai which means cleanliness and Surakshaa which
means security.

The Indian tourism industry is incredibly vibrant. In fact the country is fast
acquiring the image of a major global destination. Further, travel and
tourism industry is one of the most lucrative industries in India, bringing in
substantial amount of foreign currency. This is demonstrated by the fact that
during 2006, four million tourists visited India and forked out not less than
US %8.9 billion.

Many reasons are being cited for the growth and prosperity of India’s travel
and tourism industry. India’s rising economy has already added up millions
annually to India’s middle class, a group that’s been driving domestic
tourism. Moreover disposable income has scaled up by 10.11 percent
annually from 2001-2006 and major part of it is spent on travel.
Furthermore, the booming IT and outsourcing industry has obliged many
foreigners to visit India on business purposes. And more often than not
these foreigners end up extending their trips. According to an industry
source, foreign tourists are known to spend more time in India than
elsewhere. The influx of foreign tourists is projected to increase by over 22
percent on an annual basis, with a 33 percent increase in foreign exchange
earnings recorded in 2004.

The Tourism Ministry is also playing a proactive role with launch of


advertising campaigns like ‘Incredible India’ which aims to promote India’s
culture and tourist’s places in a fresh new, yet fantabulous way. The
campaign did help build a colorful image of India amongst consumers all
over the world as well as drawing them to India in sizeable numbers.

The tourism industry has also sparked growth in other sectors like
horticulture, handicrafts, agriculture, construction and even poultry.

The Indian tourism industry both directly and indirectly has generated jobs
in various related sectors. In fact around 20 million people are employed in
this sector.

five years

• The Confederation of Indian Industry has prepared a vision paper for 2020,
which

industry to 7% of GDP
