OTOAIOutbound Tour Operators Association of India (OTOAI) represents an association of tour operators selling outbound travel from India.


They have decided to approach the Ministry of Tourism (MoT), Government of India for representation in different government-industry consultative bodies of the department.


The freshly elected Executive Committee (EC) of the Association in its first meeting in Delhi last week has decided to build synergies with Ministry of Tourism, Government of India and also to improve its membership base so as to strengthen it as a trade association in the nation.


Mahendra Vakharia who is the President of OTOAI mentioned that inbound and outbound are actually complementary.


He went on to add that the Foreign Tourism Boards have also been investing in Indian market and promotions that leads to direct and indirect employment. Furthermore they also conducted roadshows and other activities to promote their destinations.


The association also aims to ‘drive membership’ in order to receive more traction as a firm stakeholder of the tourism industry of the country as per the opinion of Vakharia.


At present, OTOAI has a membership base of over 450 people. He also feels that the tourism industry in India is emerging into a more knowledgeable one.
