A country like India is blessed with combination of culture, great historical back ground & landscape. Therefore possibilities of vacations are almost unlimited. With a boom in tourism sector, the hospitality industry is becoming an important part of the country’s economy.
In spite of so much growth & development in tourism sector, our country has had to battle various issues ranging from government red tapism to pervasive security threats.
Some of the problems faced by tourism industry in India are:-
- Business Hurdles: – Government regulations in India frustrate tourists & tour operators for example: – Change in VISA policies which create inconsistent enforcement. Many other nations in order to earn more foreign exchange have started offering VISA on arrival to the tourists. Not only this ,our tourism industry is way behind in terms of infrastructure facilities like adequate roads, water, sewer etc.Airports have been expanding in order to accommodate passengers. In fact the service tax is so high that it does not allow visitors to spend money.
With the increase in number of cases against women, there is a 25% drop in business over the first quarter of 2013 as reported by tour operators in India. Then there are cases of victims of sex crimes who bring their stories to light, The Associate Chambers of Commerce & Industry of India said female tourism dropped by 35% in same quarter.
India is badly affected by threats & tensions with its fellow nuclear neighbor Pakistan. The US government has long warned their citizens to avoid traveling to border or other disputed areas in India. Today terrorism is the biggest threat for tourist traveling to India. Incidents like 2008 Mumbai attack, German bakery attack in Pune, serial blast in Mumbai locals etc.have created a fear in the mind of tourists looking at India as a tourist destination.
- Concerns about Industry Growth :- Despite earning foreign exchange, there are some negative impact of tourism like:-
- Migration of workers.
- Under employment caused by seasonal work.
- Inflation as tourist drive up prices.
- Preference given to tourist supplies like water, roads etc.
- Environmental impact of tourism & other important concerns.
Tourism needs policy attention precisely for this reason. In order to fight against these threats & obstacles for tourism. following steps can be taken :
conducting susceptibility study
developin risk teams
analyzing the types of threats
developing a simple probability chart
categorizing your threats by grouping & developing suitable threat guidelines etc
This will encourage tourist to come inlarge number,
