Capt. Swadesh Kumar, President, ATOAI, has said that they are disappointed since there has not been a significant increase in the budget allocated for tourism promotion. “Nevertheless, we are very delighted that 100 new airports will be developed under UDAN scheme. I hope these new airports should be in the far-flung areas of Himalayas as well, so that adventure tourism could also rise. We are also happy that Majuli Island in Assam has been added to the iconic sites list. I hope more such sites are included. I expected some announcement on natural heritage of the country for generating more employment opportunities, but would like the state governments to take it forward,” he said.
