The theme for National Tourism Day for the year 2022 is ‘Rural and Community Centric Tourism’.
HISTORY OF NATIONAL TOURISM DAY
The government realised the importance of tourism coming to India in the year 1958 when the tourism traffic committee was first begun in India to promote tourism culture in the nation and later on after taking this into consideration, it led to the creation of departmentalisation of tourism.The motive behind the separation of departments was mainly towards the preservation of our national heritage and to look after the tourist destinations to keep their beauty alive while making them tourist-friendly.
As we all are aware of the situation where the country's tourism was deeply affected due to the COVID-19 lockdown, the Ministry of Tourism would be organising seminars on this theme to showcase the diverse culture of our country so as to upgrade and enhance our country's tourism.
SIGNIFICANCE OF NATIONAL TOURISM DAY
India is the country having one of the oldest civilizations in the world and offering a wide range of diversity and multiculturalism. It also has a rich heritage and appealing places to visit, making it a well known tourist destination. National Tourism Day is celebrated in India to make the people aware of the growth prospects of the tourism sector and its impact on the economic development in the country. It helps people to know their country in a better way and make them aware of the real beauty of it.
