Members of travel associations in Telangana urges the government to take measures for aid

Published on : Monday, June 14, 2021

Due to Covid-19 affecting the tourism sector in Telangana, the members of several travel associations have urged the government to take measures for providing assistance to the battered sector.


According to an association, more than 10 lakh people in Telangana who are directly or indirectly connected to the sector have been affected by the pandemic in the last 14 months.


Nagesh Pampati, the chairman of Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI), said that while all other sectors around the world are talking about ‘revival’, the travel and tourism industry is still discussing ‘survival’. Ranga Reddy, the chairman of Indian Association of Tour Operators (IATO), said that while the Gujarat government has already announced an exemption of property tax and fixed electricity charges for the hotel industry till March 2022, the Andhra Pradesh and Manipur governments have launched a ‘relief package’ for the sector. He demanded that the Telangana government must take measures to perk up the sector in a similar way.


Nagesh Pampati said, “The pandemic doesn’t permit long-distance tourism, but we can at least promote neighbourhood tourism in the State. And once the pandemic is over, the Telangana government should promote tourism on the lines of Kerala, Gujarat, and Manipur.”


Recently, the members of various associations met with the State Tourism Minister V Srinivas Goud and submitted a representation regarding their demands and suggestions for revitalizing the sector. They said that the Minister has assured that their demands would be considered.
