Tourism is one of the most important parts of India to showcase the rich and diversified culture, historical importance, popular monuments and edifices of this country. This also helps to boost the hospitality industry of the country. So, for the sake of a developed tourism sector, Tourism Ministry of India has decided to reward travellers who visit at least 15 different places in India every year.

Union Minister Prahlad Singh Patel announced that the government will sponsor their travel expenses as an incentive. This has been announced after the concluding ceremony of the two-day National Tourism Conference. It was organised by the Government of Odisha in association with FICCI at Konark. The Union Minister said the Tourism Ministry will fund the travel expenses of those who will visit 15 different destinations of India in a year and post pictures on our website of those places. For being eligible, he has to travel out of his or her state.

The Chairman of FICCI Eastern Tourism Committee, Soubhagya Mohapatra said they will introduce more trains to increase the connectivity to different tourist spots. The centre may also connect to them to introduce more trains for tourism. ‘Paryatan Parv’ initiative of the Union Government has decided that the task should be completed by 2022, while the Ministry of Tourism wants the task to be completed within a year. According to the Tourism Ministry, this initiative should not be considered as a monetary benefit but as an incentive.

15 different destinations need clarification. If one visits 15 different locations adjoining / near by, maybe within a single State.

Please give the website link

What is the website address

I have already covered 15 destinations. But there are no guidelines on how the incentive will be paid as per information given by Local Indian tourism office in Panaji Goa.

Read the guideline once again. You have to post the photos of the places you visited on the website of ministry of tourism .

Welcome Decision. This will definately help to promote tourist industry. Further more incentive be provided in form of schemes to visit to new formed UTs Ladakh and Kashmir, which will be helpful for the peoples of these UTs.

Government should limit number of tourists visiting ecological sensitive places like Ladakh.

Looks like 15 laks ajenda
