  2. 2. Tourism  emanates  from  societal  structures;  hence  people  are   an  integral  part  of  any  tourism  product.  Socially  sustainable   development  through  tourism  is  envisaged  in  a  manner  such   that  the  socio-­‐economic  benefits  can  span  out  to  all  the  strata   of  society.   Copyright  2014-­‐2015        Presenta6on  by:  Sachin  Bansal   A  Quickest    Cogni/ve  Connect
  3. 3. Travel   and   tourism   is   one   of   the   fastest-­‐growing   industries   and   a   leader  in  INDIA.  It  has  been  a  major   social  phenomenon  and  is  driven  by   social,   religious,   recrea@onal,   knowledge   seeking   and   business   interests   and   mo@vated   by   the   human   urge   for   new   experience,   a d v e n t u r e ,   e d u c a @ o n ,   a n d   entertainment.   HOW  STAKEHOLDERS  SEE   Copyright  2014-­‐2015        Presenta6on  by:  Sachin  Bansal   A  Quickest    Cogni/ve  Connect
  4. 4. Indians,  since  historic  @mes,  have  been  avid   travelers,   with   the   firm   beliefs   of   Panch-­‐ Tirtha  before  death  and  the  social  structure   remaining   close   with   the   family   members,   even   the   farthest   of   kin.   Without   digital   innova@ons,   travel   on   public   means   (even   on   foot   in   certain   cases)   was   the   only   op@on.  The  trend  con@nues  today  also  with   lower  income  households  going  out  for  bus   trips   for   days   together   pooling   in   their   resources  and  visi@ng  new  places.   GUIDING   Copyright  2014-­‐2015        Presenta6on  by:  Sachin  Bansal   A  Quickest    Cogni/ve  Connect
