Scope Of Tourism Is Huge In India As It Is Part Of Our Culture & Tradition: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday that increasing facilities for tourists in the country ensured the growth of tourists as he stressed upon the need to think out of the box and long-term planning.

“When the facilities for the tourists increase, then the attraction among the tourists increases. This leads to a huge increase in their number, we are witnessing this in the country,” said Modi during a post-budget webinar on ‘Developing Tourism in Mission Mode’, according to the news agency ANI.

It is part of a series of 12 post-budget webinars being organised by the government to build on the “Saptarishi” Priorities outlined in the Union Budget 2023-24.

Modi said the scope of tourism is huge and it is a part of India’s culture and tradition. “When we talk about tourism, some think it’s a fancy word & it represents only those who are well-off. In the context of India, the scope of tourism is huge and is a part of our culture & tradition since ages,” added Modi. 

“To give a new height to the tourism sector in India, we have to think out of the box and do long-term planning,” stressed Modi.
