G20 will provide platform to showcase India’s tourism potential: G Kishan Reddy

On the first day of the three-day National Conference of State Tourism Ministers at Dharamshala, Tourism Minister G Kishan Reddy pointed out that the meet is important in the context of India’s G20 presidency from December 2022 to November 2023. G20 will be used as a platform to showcase India’s tourism potential to the world, he said.

The tourism ministry has sanctioned Rs 7,000 crore for development of tourism infrastructure throughout the country. A number of projects have been sanctioned under the Swadesh Darshan Scheme in 30 states and UTs for building tourist infrastructure.

The Centre’s PRASHAD Scheme aims to strengthen tourist facilities around spiritual locations, under which 39 projects have been sanctioned in 24 states. Infrastructure development at these tourist, pilgrimage and heritage destinations/cities focuses on cleanliness, security, universal accessibility, service delivery, skill development and livelihood of local communities.

The ministry recently launched the Swadesh Darshan Scheme 2.0 with the objective to develop sustainable destinations following a tourist and destination-centric approach. Its objective is to evolve as a holistic mission covering tourism and allied infrastructure, human capital development, destination management and promotion backed by policy and institutional reforms.
