Incredible India Bed and Breakfast/Homestay Establishments scheme to attract more tourists

Published on : Friday, October 27, 2017

Incredible IndiaThe Incredible India Bed and Breakfast/Homestay Establishments scheme of the Union Ministry of Tourism to attract more tourists has kindled the interest of Tamil Nadu’s Tourism Department to pursue a similar initiative that it had tried unsuccessfully a few years ago.

 
As per the State Tourism Department sources, the initiative launched during 2005-06 had to be abandoned in Tiruchi district and elsewhere in the State since the quality of accommodations identified for the scheme did not match up to the specified standards in terms of food quality, privacy, safety, proximity and other factors.

 
The Bed and Breakfast (Homestay) scheme was formulated to persuade locals to participate in tourism promotion and increase room capacity in the State, in the backdrop of Tamil Nadu which is being projected as a charming destination for holidaying in southern India.

 
According to official statistics, more than 25 million domestic tourists and 1.8 million foreign tourists visit Tamil Nadu every year. Thirty per cent of the foreign tourists visiting India also visit Tamil Nadu.

 
With connectivity to foreign destinations improving drastically in recent years, there is enormous scope for implementing the Central scheme in the right direction.

 
The Union Tourism Ministry aims to promote the scheme to provide a clean and affordable place for foreigners and domestic tourists alike to stay with families and experience the country’s customs and traditions along with relishing authentic Indian cuisine.

 
While providing flexibility to the homestay service providers to fix the rent, the State Tourism department lays emphasis on reasonable tariff.

 
The State Tourism Department aims to provide homestay facilities in the coming years through the counters it operates at the Tiruchi International Airport and the Railway Junction.
