India’s tourism sector got a boost after the Corona epidemic, the arrival of foreign tourists increased 4 times

The Corona epidemic caused such havoc all over the world that the tourist industry got a big shock. Due to the fear of Kovid, the governments of many countries imposed various restrictions on their citizens. Due to these restrictions, people stopped traveling. However, now slowly things are back on track. The tourist industry has also started getting a boost. Union Culture and Tourism Minister G. Kishan Reddy told that about 69 lakh foreign tourists had visited India last year i.e. in 2022. This figure shows a 4-fold increase in the number of tourists after 2 years of the Kovid epidemic.

Reddy said that planning is also being done to run ‘National Tourism Mission’ to digitize the tourist sector. He said that the whole world faced very difficult times during the Corona epidemic. Especially the tourist sector was badly affected. However, after two years of decline in economic growth, about 69 lakh tourists came to India from abroad. This figure of tourists coming from foreign countries indicates a 4 times increase.
