Indian tourism ministryGlobally, tourism is growing exponentially, but some basic issues of infrastructure still need to be sorted out as well as lack of synergy between stakeholders needs to be addressed.

The Indian tourism sector seems to have a lot of contradictions. In spite of its vast heritage, culture and history, many areas still need a lot of improvement.

While globally, tourism is growing in leaps and bounds, India still needs to sort out basic infrastructural issues, systemic neglect, callousness and lack of synergies among various players.

Even smaller countries have demonstrated a much better unified vision and are fully harnessing the potential and reaping economic benefits and creating millions of jobs for their country.

India is a country blessed with heritage, natural bounties, scenic beauty and a rich composite cultural kaleidoscope like no other. In fact, India can be said to be a continent disguised as a country!

If India’s tourism sector gets its priorities right and fast enough, it can surely give other countries a run for their money. India has rich and hugely untapped potential.

Also, often overlooked and detrimental is the problem of the unorganized tourism departments; it’s untrained, ill equipped, inarticulate, unaccountable officials and synergy less private sector professionals and operators. Tourism sector often doesn’t attract talent pool. Most often it is a vocation of the last resorts of sorts.

The sector is in dire need of professionalism across all levels. It needs high caliber, well-groomed and trained personnel who can serve the tourists better. It needs planners who can create immersive and engaging travel experiences for both visiting from within India and abroad.
