The Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) has urged the central government to consider the ‘homestay’ model adopted by the Uttarakhand government regarding other states as well. TAAI said that the initiative would help in kick-starting the economy along with boosting tourism business.
The Uttarakhand government aims to boost the economy and the state’s tourism sector with the help of homestays, which would be introduced in the villages as well. Around 3,600 homestays are registered so far providing employment to about 8,000 people, said TAAI.
This would prove to be fruitful in the time to come, said TAAI President JyotiMayal.Mayalsaid, “We have already seen the worst and speaking from the wise man’s perspective, we all must know the survival amid COVID-19 by now.”
“We need to keep ourselves more than ready to go to any lengths if we want our tourism sector to flourish,”addedMayal.
