‘Dwindling Rs good for Indian tourism’

“There is an urgent need to integrate the taxation regimes of various northern states like Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Chandigarh, Uttarakhand and J&K to make seamless travel across north a reality and in turn boost tourism in the northern region. Presently, tourists have to face a lot of difficulty owing to different tax levies while entering these different northern states. The CII Tourism Fest would strive to resolve this bottleneck on priority basis by creating a Chief Minister’s Forum and getting all stakeholders together at one platform from 5-7 December in Chandigarh,” emphasized Navjotpal Singh Randhawa, director, tourism, government of Punjab while addressing a press conference on CII tourism fest.

“The CM’s forum would integrate all related aspects and systems to boost tourism in the region. An Integrated Tourism Circuit (ITC) is the only way to bring this region on global tourism map by attracting investments and contribute immensely to the GDP. There is a need to club together and showcase to the world, a complete package which includes unique strengths and attractions of all northern states like, Punjab, Chandigarh, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and J&K to upscale tourist inflow in the region, both domestic and international and attract foreign tourists,” he further highlighted.
