Kerala considering opening tourism activities by October

Published on : Tuesday, September 15, 2020

After months of lockdown, the Kerala government is considering opening tourism activities in the state by October. This decision was announced by Minister Kadakampally Surendran during an interaction with the tourism panel members of CII’s (Confederation of Indian Industry) Kerala chapter.

Surendran said that the tourism department has prepared a detailed report regarding resumption of tourism activities while maintaining all safety protocols.


“The plan includes highlighting the importance of wellness and Ayurveda for immunity. The file has been presented to the chief minister and health department for their advice,” said Surendran.


Due to lockdown measures, the tourism industry, which is a key revenue earner for Kerala, has witnessed a loss of Rs. 25,000 crore.


The tourism sector recently had asked the government to think about re-opening the industry, since losses incurred were increasing by the day. More than 4,000 hotels and resorts, 1,000-plus houseboats, Ayurveda centres, tour operators, and homestay owners in the state were in dire financial constraints due to the continuous shutdown.
