Avery good morning to the excellencies, respected Principle sir, vice-principle sir, teachers, madams, and my dear colleagues. My name is … and I study in class … standard. I would like to speech on travel and tourism in India on this occasion. India is the most famous country all through the world for the travel and tourism because of the availability of many religious lifestyles here. Our country is full of heritage sites, historical monuments, beautiful sight-seeings, etc which makes India a best tourism place. Tourism to India is the economical source for the country and many lives depends on this. Because of the technological advancements everywhere, tourism has been very easy to any country. People are interacting to a great extent with the natural and historical sight seeings in India.

Because of the technological improvement all over the world, tourism is becoming one of the fastest growing industries worldwide. It benefits a lot in many ways however, sometimes big challenges affect various resources of the country such as economic, environmental, socio-cultural, and educational. It positively affects the economic growth and development of the country including various industries especially healthy tourism industry like accommodation, transportation, arts, entertainment, wildlife, etc. Tourism in our country is the source of new jobs to many people and revenue to the country. It also improves the living standard of many local people especially in the heavily visited tourist destinations. The prices of the basic commodities get increased during more traffic by the local people for the visiting tourists.

People from the developed country go for tour in the developing country however people from developing country cannot go for tour in the developed country because of the low economy status. Tourism in the developing countries may be high because of the low cost tour and travel package. However, together with the various positive effects of the tourism in the country, there are various negative effects also. Tourism in the country first affect the environment of the surrounding areas in tourists destinations because of the collection of huge amounts of garbage materials such as bottles, plastic wastes, food materials, etc. It affects the life style of both fauna and flora.

It also arise the issue of safety and security of the tourists at all the tourist destinations in the country. To attract tourists from abroad, the government of the country needs to invest some money in making tourist destinations attractive, safe and secure for the tourists. It also needs some professional guides in order to correctly guide tourists of other countries. Tourist destinations also need some advancements of facilities such as availability of proper environment, luxurious hotels, car service, 24 hrs electricity, clean water supply, etc in order to attract more tourists and difficulty free travel and living. Now-a-days, the risk of criminal activities is increasing such as kidnapping, bomb blast, and other acts of terrorism at the crowded places, thus the tourism needs tight security .

Good morning to everyone. My name is…, I study in class… standard. I would like to speech on the topic of travel and tourism in India. Tourism is very important source of the economy in the country. However it needs investment first in order to make the tourist destinations clean, more attractive, safe, and secure for the tourists safety purpose. If we analyze the level of tourism in the country the question arises that what we do to promote tourism in our country. Do we maintain proper cleanliness and hygiene in all the villages, towns and cities of the country. It needs proper cleanliness, safety and maintenance of the tourists destinations in the country in order to promote the tourism. Only being full of historical monuments, heritages, etc do not attract tourists. Tourists see cleanliness, safety and security of the tourists destinations of any country.

Our country is worldwide famous for having attractive tourist destinations. People from all over the world come every year in a huge crowd to see the various sight-seeings. There are many big cities in India having very attractive world-class skyscrapers.

Our country is highly targeted as the tourist place by the people all over the world in spite of many problems that’s why travel and tourism in India needs to be promoted more.

Good morning to the respected Principal sir, teachers and my dear colleagues. My name is…, and I study in class…th standard. I would like to speech today at this occasion on the topic of travel and tourism in India. As we all know that India is one of the most famous countries all over the world for its unique tour and travel destinations. Tourism in any country plays great role in the economic growth and development of a country. If we see the tourism in India, it is the second largest earning source of India through the foreign exchange by foreign tourists. A great percentage of people’s lives is based on only tourism itself because the tourism industry in India has employed a large number of people of both category, skilled and unskilled. Tourism in any country promotes its national integration and international brotherhood.

Our country is naturally and culturally endowed with the lots of beautiful and attractive places which have fascinated worldwide people from all over the world. Our country is one of the rich countries having heritages, historical monuments, forts, beaches, religious places, hill stations, etc attracting tourists from corner of the world.

Now-a-days, the tourism in India is highly promoted by the Departments of Tourism by the help of many Bollywood actors on international and domestic level. All the measures for promoting the tourism and tourists traffic in the country are recommended by the Tourism Advisory Board. Indian tourism is highly affected by the terrorism, insecurity and pollution in the country however, sincere efforts by the government of India are continued in order to develop the Indian tourism industry. It is one of the fastest growing industries and plays great role in the country’s economic development. Our country is a popular country for the tourist destinations all through the Asia where a big crowd of people come every year in spite of many problems. Our country is naturally bounded in its all four sides (one by the Himalaya, and other three sides by the Arabian sea, Bay of Bengal and Indian Ocean) offering wide range of sight-seeings.

The availability of many diverse geographical scenes, places, things and celebrations in India have delighted the tourists for years such as monuments, museums, forts, sanctuaries, religious places, palaces, handicrafts, fairs, festivals, classical and folk dances, music, languages, Agra, Jaipur, Jhansi, Nalanda, Mysore, Hyderabad, Mahabaleshwar, Delhi, Aurangabad, Ujjain, Shirdi, Hardwar, Varanasi, Puri, Allahabad, Amritsar, Ajmer, Vaishno Devi, Badrinath, Rameshwaram, Kedarnath, Srinagar, Manali, Kullu, Dehradun, Darjeeling, Nainital, Ooty, Shimla, Kashmir etc.

Variety of interesting activities such as water sports, sailing, scuba diving, rafting, skiing, mountaineering, houseboats, winter sports, etc are promoting the tourism in India. In order to encourage people, a tourism campaign named as ‘Incredible India’ was started by the Indian Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC) in in 2005. Tourists places in India has also been divided under sections like spiritual tourism,’ ‘ecotourism’, ‘spa tourism’, and ‘adventure tourism’ in order to encourage tourism and better growth in India.

Pollution in India has hit the Indian tourism industry to a great extent for example, effluents from the Mathura Refinery is affecting the marbles of Taj Mahal in Agra because of the negligence of concerned authorities. Another example is, beautiful beaches in India is altering gradually into the dumping grounds of garbage and wastes left by the tourists. So, it needs to overcome the pollution issues in India as well as promote medical tourism in order to enhance tourism India. Medical tourism in the country provides great level relief, safety and security to the tourists which will regularly improve the tourism in the country. Many initiatives have been taken jointly by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and Ministry of Tourism for maintaining the international standards in medical facilities to the tourists.

Essay on Promotion of Tourism in India!

The post-liberalization phase has seen a new thrust to tourism promotion. In the wake of liberalization the(Government of India) Gol has given tourism the status of export industry ignoring the havoc it creates for local economy and ecology. The then Union Minister for Tourism, Madan Lai Khurana, representing Indian official position on tourism, said: “The industry had emerged into the second largest foreign exchange earner in the country and a major step taken by the government was to declare tourism as an ‘export industry’ , thereby granting all incentives available to export houses”.

Also, the Centre considered inclusion of tourism in the Concurrent List, hitherto a state subject, and setting up a Board of Tourism Industry and Trade as part of new initiatives to boost development of tourism in our country. Recently, the Union cabinet has also decided to corporatise the tourism and catering operations of the Indian Railways; a Railways Catering and Tourism Development Corporation is to be set up for this purpose.

A new National Tourism Policy has been envisaged and is awaiting clearance by the Union cabinet. Ananth Kumar, the then Union Tourism Minister, maintained: “We want to open up (tourism and travel sectors). We want to allow 100 per cent foreign direct investments in tourism infrastructure development activity”.

Subsequently, he declared Swagat, Suchna, Suvidha and Suraksha (welcome, information, facility and security) to be the primary goals of the Ministry for development of tourism in our country.The Ministry has set an ambitious target of 8 per cent growth in tourist arrivals. It is interesting to note that the Uttar Pradesh government has drawn up a special strategy to encourage tourists to spend longer hours in Agra-Vrindavan Circuit to promote tourism in the region.

The strategy involves clubbing the various monuments in Agra and Fatehpur Sikri with Vrindavan as a single tourist circuit and build up tourism infrastructure in the region so that tourists stay for longer duration in the region. The state government is also planning to set up a tourism police.

On March 9, 1999 the Maharashtra government announced major reductions in taxes and other duties for those who are interested to invest in tourism projects in the state. According to the then Shiv Sena-BJP combined C.M., Narayan Rane, “the move is aimed at boosting the tourism sector”. The state government has already granted Sindhudurg district the status of tourism district.

It seems our policy makers refuse to learn from the tourism experience of many third world countries under globalization. In recent years tourism has become a very fast growing economic activity in many Third World economies. It is noteworthy that “international tourist flows are largely unidirectional, from North to South, while the flow of much of the income generated by world tourism is from South to North”. In Central America the escalation of tourism has occurred simultaneously with heightened impoverishment of the masses. Commenting upon the process, W.I. Robinson says:

“The explosion of international tourism – this phenomenon — should be seen as a result of the tendency towards social polarization inherent in global capitalism, and the new opportunities for accumulation that this particular structure of world income and demand generates. Tourism as a service activity that integrates the region further into the global economy has significant social, class and political ramifications.

Growth of the industry enhances the external orientation of the regional economy, and with it, the strength of those groups linked to transnational interests, including the commercial and financial sectors. The industry thus induces and is induced by the neo-liberal opening”.

Coming back to our own country, during the post-liberalization phase many hitherto restricted areas – Ladakh and Lahaul-Spit, the Andaman Islands and others — are being opened up for tourists. The government has also announced its intentions to lease out islands of Lakshadweep to international hoteliers for developing them as tourist resorts.

Several tourism-related projects are coming up in different parts of the country. The affected and concerned people have responded in a variety of ways. The Jagrut Goenkaranchi Fouz (JGF), which has effectively resisted ‘destructive’ tourism in Goa for the past ten years, planned to launch the “India Campaign on Tourism Issues” (ICTI) in May 1994.

The ICTI has sought to question and oppose the way different state governments are making master plans for the development of tourism in their states without taking the local population into confidence.

Below we briefly discuss two tourism-related projects which have generated a lot of controversy and people’s protest:

1. The Floatel:

In December 1996, the Union Environment Ministry gave clearance to Chateau International Inc. Private Limited to construct the ‘floatel’ off Cuffe Parade in Mumbai. The project is being promoted by Ireland-based Deltic Management Company and Chateau International. It is to be located on a 26 hectare site leased from the Bombay Port Trust.

It comprises a 30 storey hotel and 29 storey business centre. The lower deck of the hotel will house helicopters, a parking lot for 2,000 cars and infrastructure for the hotel. The project is to be connected to Nariman Point and Cuffe Parade through two undersea tunnels, a ropeway and a collapsible bridge.

The Bombay Environment Action Group (BEAG), a Mumbai-based environmental NGO, fought the project tooth and nail when it was proposed. Allegedly, the project is likely to worsen traffic congestion in South Mumbai. Besides, this seven-star floating hotel is threatening the livelihood of small fishermen from Mumbai.

There are around 250 fishing trawlers and small vessels which fish in the waters off Colaba, Cuffe Parade, Worli, Mahim, Bandra, Khar and Versova. According to an estimate, “… the floatel will threaten the livelihood of 10,000 small fishermen”. It is also feared that solid wastes and effluents from the hotel will hasten destruction of marine life. Vijay Bhandarkar, secretary of the All- Maharashtra Fishermen’s Action Committee, says: “Our catch has already fallen by about 75 per cent due to sea pollution. The foreign vessels that dock at Jawaharlal Nehru Port in New Mumbai dump their solid and liquid waste in the sea. Even the BMC dumps most of Mumbai’s waste into the sea. The floatel will increase this pollution”.

2. Sahara Amby Valley Project:

A notification issued by the Shiv Sena-BJP government of Maharashtra on November 26, 1996 allowed private parties to develop hill stations and tourist resorts in the state. Subsequently, the Sahara India Housing Limited (SIHL) was granted permission by the state government to develop a hill station near Lonavala.

In December 1998, the Mumbai High Court set aside this permission for the project of hill station known as Sahara Amby Valley Project. This project covered 2,000 hectares of forest and agricultural land in Mulshi taluka near Pune. However, the court upheld the validity of the government notification calling for private participation in development of hill stations.

At the same time, the court also asked the government to impose certain restrictions on private parties which seek to develop hill stations in the state. Later on, the SIHL filed a special leave petition in the Supreme Court challenging the order of the Bombay High Court which had quashed the letter of intent granted to it by the state government.

In this context it is interesting to note that at least three different proposals are awaiting clearance by the government – “Golden Glades, Tunnel Tops and Esselworld have sought to ‘develop’ between 400 and 2,000 hectares in the Mulshi and Maval region near Pune”. Time alone will tell what impact these projects have on the ecology, wildlife and the local population of the region.
