demography of domestic is also changing. While religious and social visits

The tourism industry is overtly burdened with multiple, and sometimes


overlapping tax, potential entrepreneurs. There is an urgent need to relax tax
barriers in the sectors. Some specific recommendation on this aspects are as

tour opreator, and tour opreator to transport operator etc.

under

As important points to consider while looking at the tourist figure growth is


also to looks at the purpose of travel. It has to be observed that while the
tourist arrival are experiencing positives growth. For tourism to aggressively
grow as a sector.it is imperative that we increase the share of leisure traveller

CONCLUSION

In conclusion, this is a wonderful economic contribution to today's economy.


Its a great way for people to spend their money and for cities to attract other
people. In doing so, cities across the world attract millions of dollars just so
foreigners get the chance to experience life in a new place. I hope to do
much travelling myself because I believe it to be a wonderful way of living
life to the fullest. Experiencing culture, religion Foods, sports,
entertainments shows and general way of life in a new place is a great way
to live life to the fullest. I want to travel to the world and once I am free of
the responsibility of raising children.

We can conclude that the financial sector is a nerve system of Indian


economy. For steady growth in economy innovation and development in
financial sector is very important.

1. Launch Innovative product

3. Better customer services
