cruise tourismNithin Gadkari, the Minister for Road Transport, Highways, Shipping and Water Resources in India said that the country is discussing with Singapore to develop cruise tourism in the country. Cruise tourism infrastructure will be developed in Goa, Mumbai, Puthuchery, Chennai and Kochi.

 
Gadkari said, “We are keen on promoting cruise tourism on a mega-scale in the country. Mumbai alone is expected to have 950 cruise vessels in the coming five years. Around one lakh Indians visit Singapore every year for cruise tourism. We have large scope for developing cruise tourism in India, with our 7,500 kilometres of coastline and we think Singapore can play a key role in making it happen.”

 
In order to market cruise tourism, India has relaxed the government policies and attracting global consultants. Gadkari said that a policy is being planned to put India on the global map of cruise tourism. The government is expecting to generate around 2.5 lakh job opportunities, which in turn will contribute to the development of the country.

 
India has 12 major ports, of which Mumbai, Goa, Cochin, New Mangalore and Chennai have facilities to berth international cruise ships.
