State Office • Two to three office at each state • It will collect all information of the things which attracts in that area. • It will keep all the record of guides,buses,tourists,etc. Zonal Office
  6. 6.

  9. 9. ESTIMATIONS:- Estimated employees:- Estimated income:- May be on break-even point Initially but will double For sure in subsequent years. Estimated budget :- Estimated growth:- It can be estimated as people will say :- 40 million 350 employees A pool of guides and volunteers
  10. 10. Three-tier tourism:-Risks and mitigation factors Risks • Problem of funds. • Long gestation period. • Problem of extremism. • Lack of awareness among local people regarding tourism. • Guides may not be well trained. Mitigation solution • A brief presentation seeking funds may be given to Government. + Funds may also be raised from general public in this regard by making them feel the importance of tourism (promotional activity-responsibility of head office). • Working must be started during gestation period too (although at small scale during this period). • A team should be formed for dealing with this. • For dealing with this subject of tourism must be introduced in educational system. • A proper training must be imparted to guides before they actually practice it.
