Tourism is travel for recreational or leisure purposes. According to the World Tourism Organization ‘tourists’ are defined as people who "travel to and stay in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes not related to the exercise of an activity remunerated from within the place visited". The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) has predicted that India has the potential to become the number one tourist destination in the world with the demand growing at 10.1 percent per annum. In India, the Government spending on tourism is 153rd in the world at 0.9 per cent. China spends 3.8 of its budget on tourism and rates fifth in receiving the largest tourist arrivals (31.2 million) after France, U.S., Spain and Italy. India gets only 2.6 million tourists on an average per annum. The WTTC's Tourism Satellite Accounting Research (TSAR) has found a global shift in tourism away from Europe to Asia and the Far East in the last 10 years. According to WTTC study while outbound tourism had grown over last 10 years from 76 million to 179 (with the boom in the economy), the inbound traffic has remained almost static at 2.6 million arrivals. Business travel and tourism are also on the edge to grow in the coming decade, but since business travel has unique features of higher spending, requirement of services, higher expectations, world-class standards, telecommunications, efficient and convenient travel schedules, the public sector has to assess this growth and plan its services and policies

to serve the growing demand. Major attractions in India are the world's highest mountains, miles of coastline with beautiful beaches, tropical forests and wildlife, desert safari, backwaters, historical monuments, forts and palaces, adventure tourism. India is on the brink to emerge as the 2nd fastest growing (8.8%) tourism economy in the world over 2005-14. A mix of marketing initiatives and revitalized interest in India as a tourist destination is making India an attractive tourist destination for the foreign traveler. Tourism requires sophisticated management to realize its full potential as a positive and sustainable economic, environmental, social and cultural strength. Tourism industry has the potential to provide employment on a large scale. Study of Tourism becomes crucial if its potential economic and social benefits are to be maximized.

Human resource management is one of the important aspects of any industrial sector and it is more so in the case of a 'service industry' like tourism. Interestingly, this industry is characterized by high level of human involvement in both the development and delivery of service products or 'touristic experiences'. Many ways and means may be employed to deliver tourism services to the tourists, but the role of human as individuals or groups is almost universal. In this backdrop, tourism may be regarded as 'peoples' industry. The Human Resource Development activities of the Ministry of Tourism mainly include capacity building programmes, sensitization of stake holders in tourism industry and making available trained manpower in the field of hospitality and tourism to the industry. Human Resource Management for the Hospitality and Tourism Industries takes an integrated look at HRM policies and practices in the tourism and hospitality industries. Utilising existing human resource management (HRM) theory and practice, it contextualizes it to the tourism and hospitality industries by looking at the specific employment practices of these industries, such as how to manage tour representatives or working in the airline industry. It initially sets the scene with a broad review of the evidence of HRM practice within the tourism and hospitality industries.

the government has compiled a list of do’s and don’ts for its citizens. CM Sheila Dikshit has said that. “We want to change Delhi’s public culture. that they are courteous. So. In spite of this Delhi still needs to be more hospitable for the coming event and the huge number of tourists who will come to India. Delhi is unique but the attitude needs to be changed.Delhi's citizens need to brush up on etiquette for Commonwealth Games As common wealth game is knocking at the door. keep houses and shops clean. spit. Government wants to convey to its citizens to not to urinate in public. ”we can generate a package on how to change the culture of Delhi and the behavioral pattern that we have today. their behaviour towards each other and towards the guests.” Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said at a meeting. keep public transport safe and other such mannerisms as said by Delhi tourism Chief Rina Ray.” Delhi Not Hospitable Enough Delhiites have always been seen as warm people who welcome and accommodate all kinds of people. not only in terms of language but also our behaviour toward each other and the guests who come here. Delhi has accepted a large population that is diverse in nature and culture from poor to affluent in its heart. . ”We want tourists to go back with the impression that Delhi is a wonderful city.

6% per annum over the next ten years. on one hand struggling with the problem of poverty since the time of independence while on the other hand is spending millions on the Commonwealth Games! Forty percent of India’s population is below the poverty line which clearly indicates that the booming Indian economy is still unable to feed a majority of its citizens. Travel & Tourism Economy employment is forecast to grow from 30. Ironically. is leading to inflation in the economy.6. unskilled and poor people are forced to get involved in unorganized employment with least possible wages and let’s not forget the skilled and literate unemployed…but who really cares? India is too busy with Commonwealth Games! Tourism and Economy India is expected to be the fastest growing economy in coming years with real Travel & Tourism GDP growth rising by 7. And its growth should average 7. This growth is already presenting substantial challenges to both the government and the private sector. Focus on the word developing as India is not yet developed. individually also all the citizens were preparing their shops. in turn. India is a country which is. But as a part of Delhi’s Development process few issues have come up: Effect of CWG on India economy: India is a developing country. worsening their conditions which.9%. their offices to serve tourists in some way.1% over the period 2008 to 2018. while the contribution of Travel & Tourism to India's GDP will be sustained at 6. . energy resources are getting depleted.5 million jobs .2%) in 2018. dynamic and worthwhile employer is a major concern.4% of total employment from 2008 to just under 40 million (7. The need for a radical improvement in the image of the sector as a fair. Climatic change like global warming is causing an agricultural crisis for the peasants all over the country.Opportunities and threats attached to organizing an event on such large scale Although on one side CWG 2010 is proving to be a boon for Indian Tourism industry.

Hence India’s poverty and the hosting of Commonwealth Games are not at all compatible as for a nation the welfare of its citizen is its first priority and not the conduction of sports and leisure. Every artist has booked his /her position to entertain the thirsty crowd of tourists during CWG 2010. Entertainment is one of the most important things that need to be organized to entertain our huge crowd of guests.INTERPRETATION Probably Commonwealth games will have an international impact and benefit a particular section of the society temporarily. World class Delhi would no longer be a dream! The commonwealth will prove to be a boon to both the tourism sector as well as the sports sector and plus the local people. Sports lovers will get to watch big games after a long time after the 1954 and 1982. for which music. dance and theatres will be the best source to introduce them to our country. a country like India wearing poverty in the form of national shame cannot afford to conduct such games at the cost of its poverty stricken citizens. So far we have been able to gather and retain that commonwealth games are going to be a huge hit among the masses. All the developments in Delhi are proving to be a blessing for a common Delhiite as these constructions of roads. tourists will also be exploring India and looking deep into the Indian diversified culture. Then what? Back to square one? Thus. new metro rail connectivity etc would have otherwise taken more than 10years and now it is has taken only about 4years to complete. Beyond the CWG. As discussed in the previous sections certain number of initiatives needs to be planned out to increase the rate of foreign tourist arrivals. Major steps needs to be taken towards safety of the tourists from the terrorist’s attack that would add to the honour for India. will make people laugh as well as cry through the magic of their performances. but this is where the most significant question arises that if the games will benefit a certain strata of the society which is already rich and powerful then what happens to those strata of the Indian population which is below the poverty line? Who bears the responsibility of their welfare? The Commonwealth Games will usher in a certain amount of employment but will it offer employment to millions of unemployed? And by the way this is only for a temporary period of time. Social and environmental causes will also be positively affected directly or indirectly through tourism initiatives by various departments and states. This would also promote future tourism further.. . flyovers. Terror attacks and swine flu were one of the major reasons for declining tourists to India. May it be the program of music or dance or plays. Therefore India should first win the race against poverty and then think of going international through such ventures. During CWG the entire stage for entertainment has been set. To improve such situation and bring country out of the tremors of global slowdown tourism promotion would be the most important step during CWG.

CWG 2010 is just knocking at the door but Delhi is not ready infrastructuraly. masaale wala khana and much more. Delhiites also need to be hospitable enough to welcome guests of CWG. India is famous for its street side food.Lot of improvements will be seen and are being seen in the overall structure. which is a very wrong decision. do not spit anywhere. Another problem Delhi would face in the long term is that though lot of construction work is being carried out but the laborers being brought to Delhi would be unemployed after the construction work gets over and as a result slums would increase in Delhi. All those dhabas just need to be renovated in a way so that it could leave good impression instead of kicking it out. As we all know. All these factors should be taken care of. CWG 2010 is getting started on October. First Delhi should be ready from every point of view then only it should approach for hosting CWG. many people will be unemployed and secondly. Delhiites need to follow some very important things like. Firstly. . These all are needed to put good impression on the guests. Delhi government took decision to kick out all the street side dhabas. they should not urinate in public. They should change their rude behavior otherwise it will not leave good impression on the guests. keep their houses and shops clean. design and look of the national capital.

Instead our own workforce can be assigned for this task. consequently leading to burden on Delhiites. There is an immediate need for maximum availability of doctors during the games. 2. so these can act as a medium for not only just providing information and facilities but also for promoting cultural heritage of India. as there has been considerable increase in tax rates and inflation. Apart from that. Volunteers have been invited from foreign universities to train the domestic volunteers. there are some recommendations and suggestions that are required to fulfill the gaps in the development of Delhi for hosting CWG. • • Money exchangers can be installed in the vicinity of petrol pumps. 5. 4. it is advisable to install various water purifiers like RO systems at maximum places all over Delhi. Purity of drinking water has always been a major concern in Delhi. Tourists can be provided with smart cards to make their travel easier.RECOMMENDATIONS AND SUGGESTIONS On the basis of the analysis of the study done above. So the citizens should be made aware about where their money has been utilised so that they also generate feeling of participation in such a big event of their country. 1. They can use these for shopping and dining at restaurants and malls and need not to visit money exchanger frequently. 7. Petrol pump staff can be made to wear the cultural dresses during the commonwealth to promote Indian heritage. though the concentration is on Delhi but the security level in other states should not be ignored especially at the border areas. There needs to be transparency in tax policy. There is a need to increase the number of prepaid booths for hiring autos in order to curb them from charging unreasonable fares from tourists. 8. 6. . 3. Thus. As petrol pumps are evenly distributed in the entire city as well as NCR areas. For this recruitment of security personnel should be undertaken. Delhi’s security needs to be tightened for the upcoming games keeping in view the unfortunate events that have taken place in the past few years.

. The various projects undertaken for CWG has been under continuous change thus the information collected cannot be entirely relied upon. No primary data collected 4. India hasn’t hosted such an event on such large scale previously 3. The impact on tourism has only been predicted. however the actual results would be felt once the games starts. No e-journal over CWG was available 2. 5.LIMITATIONS 1.

a country like India wearing poverty in the form of national shame cannot afford to conduct such games at the cost of its poverty stricken citizens. . especially Delhi is undergoing a complete makeover where the infrastructure is concerned. wealthy and literate India. are being constructed. better flyovers. But this is where the most significant question arises that if the games will benefit a certain strata of the society which is already rich and powerful then what happens to those strata of the Indian population which is below the poverty line? Who bears the responsibility of their welfare? It is agreed that the Commonwealth Games will usher in a certain amount of employment but will it offer employment to millions of unemployed? But this is also true that this is only for a temporary period of time. Better buses can be seen running on the roads of Delhi. India. As a result of the approaching Commonwealth Games. Therefore India should first win the race against poverty and then think of going international through such ventures. Lavish fivestar hotels.CONCLUSION India’s present goal should be the development of human resources. Hence India’s poverty and the hosting of Commonwealth Games are not at all compatible as for a nation the welfare of its citizen is its first priority and not the conduction of sports and leisure. Why all this? Just to show that India is on its way to become a developed nation soon? But can it hide those shabby and disguised slums behind the shimmering and glamorous construction? Can it suppress the cries of those million hungry stomachs? Can it? Unfortunately not! And can anyone explain how modern infrastructure helps those million unemployed men who have to support half a dozen of their family members without any source of income? The fact that may be these games will have an international impact and benefit a particular section of the society temporarily cannot be denied. etc. dealing with poverty and creating a healthy. Then what? Back to square one? Thus.
