Vice-President of India Jagdeep Dhankhar presented the National Tourism Awards to awardees on Tuesday at a programme organised by the Ministry of Tourism to mark World Tourism Day, 2022. 



Union Minister of Tourism G. Kishan Reddy and MoS Tourism Ajay Bhatt graced the occasion. Tourism Secretary Arvind Singh and other senior officers of the ministry were also present. 



A total of 81 awards were given away this year highlighting the achievements of the industry in 2018-19. The Vice-President also released India Tourism Statistics 2022, New Incredible India Global Promotional Films and ‘Go Beyond: 75 Experiences of North India’ e-book on the occasion.



During his keynote address, Dhankhar described India as “heaven for tourism” and asked Indians to explore domestic tourism destinations first before looking at international travel. Referring to India’s long civilisational history and rich cultural heritage, he underlined that most tourist places in the country have a deep connect with history, folk arts and ancient texts.



The Vice-President termed tourism a key driver of economic growth and employment generation in the country and stressed on the need to fully leverage India’s immense potential in the field of medical tourism as well as the growing global interest in ancient practices of healing such as Ayurveda and Yoga.
