Govt extends e-visa facility at 25 airports and 5 seaports to promote tourism
To promote tourism in India, events such as 'paryatan parv' (tourism festival), International Buddhist Conclave and International Tourism Mart too have been organized.
Tourism Minister K J Alphons also said the government has launched the 'Incredible India 2.0' campaign, marking a shift from generic promotions to market-specific promotional plans. A 24X7 toll-free multi-lingual tourist helpline has also been put in place as part of the efforts.
He said while development and promotion of tourism is primarily the responsibility of state government, the Union Tourism Ministry provides central financial assistance to states and UTs to organize fairs, festivals and tourism-related events for the promotion of tourism.
