Indian Tourism Industry Booming With Increased Tourist Arrivals

The tourism sector in India is rolling high. In 2006, foreign tourists arrivals in India have shown a 25% growth. Being one of the prime gateways of tourist tours, Delhi has improvised its shape to get a major chunk of the national and international tourists.
The air traveler figures are expected to increase from the 15 million annually (in 2006) to an estimated 40-50 million in the next five years.
The international tourism in the South Asian region has grown at a rate of about 8% in the last 4-5 years. In 2006, India registered a growth in excess of 13% in the arrival of foreign tourists. Thus, an increase was registered not only in the number of tourists arriving, but there has also been an increase in the spending per tourist, causing a greater economic spin.
According to WTO (World Tourism Organization), by the year 2010 there will be an estimated 1 Billion tourists every year. But, signs indicate that arrivals of international tourists will exceed these projections by little distance- building dynamic opportunities for the companies, dealing in the hospitality business.
According to the RNCOS report "Indian tourism industry outlook (2006)", Indian tourism industry has been showing at an impressive double-digit growth. In order to sustain this growth and meet the expectations, it is essential for the government of India to invest in infrastructure such as the transport systems and accommodations.
