State Tourism Industry: Inputs on Issues

State Tourism in India if organized effectively can be a huge revenue and employment generator. However, due to limited understanding, no bench marking, poor processes, lots of corruption, huge VIP culture on the ground most state tourist spots in India are not in good condition and don't find place in global tourism maps and in many cases even a harassment for tourists.

With this post, we would like to seek your inputs on all the issues with state tourism. Please share as much detail as possible based on your experiences.

The objective here is to work with the key stakeholders so actions can be taken to boost state tourism in India.

We look forward to your inputs! more

Expect few states, many states do not give importance to tourism or places of tourist interest. There must be regular transport facility and on the spot booking and stay arrangements. More importantly, souchalaya or wash rooms should be provided for the benefit or use of the tourist. more  
Privatisation is only solution State role should be as facilator specially Good Road, Rail and Air Connectivity, Arrangement of Pure drinking water, Support medical facilities etc. there is no need for State Hotels , guest houses etc its for Private sector. more  
1. Tourism spots in rural areas should be developed without disturbing local population and culture 2. Major road should end atleast three km from the rural point and balance road should be narrow and covered by local e-rickshaws 3. All developments should be with afforestation and minimum use of plastics 4. all water bodies to be preserved 5. Hotels should be minimum five kilometers away 6. safety of visitors should be implemented at the spots On Sat, 16 Oct 2021 16:13:41 +0530 LocalCircles Manager wrote > more  
Unfortunately, very few places like Taj, etc are well maintained by authorities with fixed entry fees. Many places with entry fees is managed well within the area; but it is filthy outside. The entry roads are in poor condition. It requires a total mindset change from the tourism departments to first create a proper approaches to the tourist areas and then seek accountability from the personnel managing it. Even the beach areas which attract domestic and overseas tourists are not maintained well (partly due to the people themselves dirtying it, Marina beach in Chennai is an example). At many places like Kashmir, there are no fixed charges specified for services at tourist locations (One has to be a good negotiator to arrive at a fair price). India can be a great tourist destination for both domestic and foreign tourists only if a dedicated overhaul action is taken by the governments. more  
Release maintenance from govt hands, ensure effective marketing to increase the footfall thereby not necessitating need to charge high fees, provide the pvt firms the authority to levy heavy fines on anyone found misusing / damaging the property more
