PP Khanna, President, Association of Domestic Tour Operators of India (ADTOI), has said that the Government has really thought about tourism as an important sector. “It is a tool for the generation for employment as well as revenue generation. Announcing allocation of Rs 3500 crore for tourism in 2021 is a good move. Apart from that they have talked about airport, land, railways, waterways. They have covered everything that can be a tool for the development of tourism including 100 airports by 2024 and doubling aircraft fleet under UDAN scheme. More trains like Tejas and high sped trains would certainly boost tourism within the country. They have also selected 5 archaelogical sites to be developed with development of museums. Even 550 railway stations will be provided with wi-fi, which is a need today. With all these efforts tourism will be developed, what needs to be done now is to focus on skill development in the unorganised sector, which would make India a destination to look out for,” he says.
