The Foreign Tourist Arrivals (FTA’s) in India have increased from 5.11 million in 2009 to 5.58 million in 2010. The Compounded Average Growth Rate (CAGR) of the tourism sector in India since 2001 to 2010 is around 8%.
  4. 4. Introduction: The five metro cities are the major ports of entry for the arrival of foreign tourists in India; therefore these cities play an important role in attracting foreign tourists to India. India however faces competition from a number of developing nations like itself and a few developed economies as well. Tourist flow to India is no doubt growing, but it is growing at a much less percentage than to other tourist destinations like Malaysia, Thailand, France, turkey, etc.
  5. 5. TOURISM DEVELOPMENT IN INDIA Tourism development in India has passed through many phases. The Sixth Plan marked the beginning of a new era when tourism began to be considered a major instrument for social integration and economic development.
  6. 6. Development: It was only after the 80’s that tourism activity gained momentum. The Government took several significant steps. A National Policy on tourism was announced in 1982. Later in 1988, the National Committee on Tourism formulated a comprehensive plan for achieving a sustainable growth in tourism. In 1992, a National Action Plan was prepared and in 1996 the National Strategy for Promotion of Tourism was drafted. In 1997, a draft new tourism policy in tune with the economic policies of the Government and the trends in tourism development was published for public debate.
  7. 7. Growth of Indian Tourism:  Domestic tourism is as old as the Indian society. According to available statistics, domestic tourism has grown substantially during the last one decade.  It increased to 167 million in 1998 from just 64 million in 1990, thus registering a compound annual growth of 12.8 per cent.
