All types of tourism in India have registered phenomenal growth in the last decade ever
since the Indian government decided to boost revenues from the tourism sector by
projecting India as the ultimate tourist spot.

have been attracting foreign travelers to India in hordes

                  Introduction to the Industry
History of the Indian Tourism

Tourism industry in India is on a great boom at the moment India has become a major global tourist
destination and Indian tourism industry is exploiting this potential to the hilt. Travel and tourism industry
is the second highest foreign exchange earner for India, and the government has given travel & tourism
organizations export house status.

The Indian tourism industry can be attributed to several factors.

Firstly, the tremendous growth of Indian economy has resulted in more disposable income in the hands
of middle class, thereby prompting increasingly large number of people to spend money on vacations
abroad or at home.

Secondly, India is a booming IT hub and more and more people are coming to India on business trips.

Thirdly, aggressive advertising campaign "Incredible India" by Tourism Ministry has played a major
role in changing the image of India from that of the land of snake charmers to a hot and happening place
and has sparked renewed interest among foreign travelers.

Travel & tourism industry's contribution to Indian industry is immense. Tourism is one of the main
foreign exchange earners and contributes to the economy indirectly through its linkages with other
sectors like horticulture, agriculture, poultry, handicrafts and construction. Tourism industry also
provides employment to millions of people in India both directly and indirectly through its linkage with
other sectors of the economy. According to an estimate total direct employment in the tourism sector is
around 20 million.

Travel & tourism industry in India is marked by considerable government presence. Each state has a
tourism corporation, which runs a chain of hotels/ guest houses and operates package tours, while the
central government runs the India Tourism Development Corporation.




The policy is built around the 7-S Mantra


Swaagat (welcome),
Soochanaa (information),
Suvidhaa (facilitation),
Surakshaa (security),
Sahyog (cooperation),


                                                     7                SKYLINE BUSINESS SCHOOL

Sanrachnaa (infrastructure)
Safaai (cleanliness).

Some of the salient features of the Tourism Policy are:

   − The policy proposes the inclusion of tourism in the concurrent list of the Constitution to enable
     both the central and state governments to participate in the development of the sector.
   − No approval required for foreign equity of up to 51 per cent in tourism projects. NRI investment
     up to 100% allowed.
   − Automatic approval for Technology agreements in the hotel industry, subject to the fulfillment of
     certain specified parameters.
   − Concession rates on customs duty of 25% for goods that are required for initial setting up, or for
     substantial expansion of hotels.
   − 50% of profits derived by hotels, travel agents and tour operators in foreign exchange are exempt
   − from income tax. The remaining profits are also exempt if reinvested in a tourism related project.
