Preface

The National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) conducted an all- India survey of households in the
65th round of NSS during July 2008 - June 2009. The survey comprised enquiries on (i) domestic
tourism (ii) housing condition (iii) condition of urban slums. The subject of domestic tourism was
covered in the NSS household survey during the 65th Round on the request of Ministry of Tourism,
Govt. of India. This has not been covered in any earlier NSS round as comprehensively as in the 65th
round. In the 54th round (January-June 1998) of NSS, one of the subjects covered was tours involving
overnight stay. The results of the 54th round enquiry on travel (which included commuting to work or
for education as well as tours involving overnight stay) were published in NSS Report No.450.
This report, based on data collected in the 65th round, inter alia, presents the magnitude of
domestic tourism activity as revealed by estimates of numbers of households and persons making
overnight and same-day trips during a year. It studies the numbers of overnight and same-day trips per
household and per person and provides key indicators on domestic tourism in cross classification of
household and individual characteristics such as economic level, occupation, religion, social group, sex,
age and activity status. It examines the pattern of trips undertaken in respect of trip features such as
leading purpose, duration, type of main destination, number of places visited, and the expenditure
related to trips by leading purpose of trip, by broad head of expenditure, etc. Estimates are provided
separately for overnight trip and same-day trip and for rural and urban sectors at all-India or
State/Union Territory level.

Chapter One of the report is introductory. Major definitions and concepts related to the survey
are given in Chapter Two. Chapter Three contains the survey findings on (a) incidence and
characteristics of trips (b) participation of various population groups in domestic tourism activity (c)
visitor-trip characteristics and (d) occurrence of domestic tourism activity among households and
persons in a one-year period. Findings on expenditure related to trips are presented in Chapter Four.
Detailed statistical tables are presented in Appendix A. The sampling design and estimation procedure
is explained in Appendix B, and a facsimile of the schedule of enquiry canvassed in the field is
provided as Appendix C.
The Survey Design and Research Division (SDRD) of the NSSO undertook the development of
the survey methodology and survey instruments, and the drafting and finalisation of the report. The
field work was carried out by the Field Operations Division (FOD) of NSSO and the data processing
and tabulation work by the Data Processing Division (DPD) of NSSO. The Coordination and
Publication Division (CPD) coordinated various activities pertaining to the survey.
I am indebted to the members of the then Steering Committee of National Sample Survey, the
Working Group for NSS 65th round and the National Statistical Commission for their valuable guidance
at various stages of survey activities from designing of the questionnaire to the preparation of this
report. I gratefully acknowledge the contribution of the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India, for
publicity of the survey during field operations. I also express my thanks to various officers of different
divisions of the NSSO involved in the preparation of this report.
I hope the report will be found useful by policy makers, academicians and researchers.

Highlights
The results on ‘Domestic Tourism in India’ are based on data collected during July 2008 - June
2009 from 1,53,308 surveyed households in 8,109 sample villages and 4,719 urban blocks
spread over all States and Union Territories of India. All estimates relate to a period of 365
days. The important indicators for studying domestic tourism in a demographic domain are
derived through the concept of ‘trip’, which is devised as a unit of movement of members of a
household as ‘domestic visitors’.

NUMBER OF TRIPS MADE IN A YEAR

In a one-year period, 418 overnight trips were made per 100 Indian households (on an
average, about 4 per household). The number of trips per 100 households was 440 for the
rural population, perceptibly higher than for the urban population, for which it was 365.
The incidence of same-day trips, at 753 per 100 households in a year, was substantially
higher than that of overnight trips. Rural households undertook same-day trips at the rate of
844 per 100 households, which was noticeably higher than 537 trips per 100 households,
the rate for urban households.
The number of overnight trips made per 100 persons in the population was 210 in rural
India and 207, that is, roughly the same level, in urban India.
The number of overnight trips per 100 persons was higher for males – 225 for the rural
population and 220 for the urban – than for females – 194, rural, and 192, urban.
The number of same-day trips per 100 of population was 330 in rural India and 263 in
urban India. In rural India it was 389 for males and 266 for females, and in urban India it
was 297 among males and 226 among females.
With increase in age, the number of overnight as well as same-day trips per person rose
gradually and then declined, being highest for the age-group 30-34 in rural India and
highest for the age-group 40-44 in urban India. Among children under 15, however, the
number of trips, both same day as well as overnight, per child was highest in the lowest age
group 0-4 for rural as well as urban India.
There was not much variation among persons of different occupations or industries in
number of overnight or same-day trips per 100 persons.

CHARACTERISTICS OF TRIPS

Overnight/ Same-day: For the rural population, slightly over one-third of all trips were
overnight trips and nearly two-thirds were same-day trips. For the urban population, the
proportion of overnight trips was a little higher – over 40%.
Trip size: For the rural population, every 100 overnight trips had 223 participating
members, and every 100 same-day trips had 183. For the urban population, every 100
overnight trips had 232 participants, and every 100 same-day trips had 200 participants.

NSS Report No. 536: Domestic Tourism in India, 2008-09 
 
Highlights
Leading purpose (overnight trips): Trips whose purpose was ‘social’ (social visits)
accounted for 75% of overnight trips of the rural population and 71% of overnight trips of
the urban population. Trips with ‘religious and pilgrimage’ purposes accounted for about
9% of overnight trips for the rural population and 12% for the urban population. Trips for
‘health and medical’ purposes formed 7% of overnight trips of the rural population and
about 3½% for the urban population of India. Trips for ‘holidaying, leisure and recreation’
accounted for 5% of overnight trips of urban people but only 2% for rural people.
Leading purpose (same-day trips): About 55% of same-day trips of the urban population
and 38% for the rural population were made for ‘social’ visits. ‘Shopping’ was found to be
the next leading purpose for undertaking same-day trips in rural India, accounting for 23%
of such trips, but was less common in urban India, where its share was only about 7%.
‘Health and medical’ purposes, too, were much more common in rural India, accounting
for 17% of same-day trips, and less common in urban India, where their share was about
8%.
Duration: The average number of nights spent on overnight trips was about 3 for the rural
population and about 4 for the urban. However, the average duration of overnight trips
undertaken by the urban population varied from 3.5 nights in the months of February and
August to 5.6 in the month of July. In rural areas month-to-month variation was relatively
low, the average duration varying from 2.7 nights in February to 3.4 nights in June.
Destination location: Travel within one’s own district accounted for about 66% of
overnight visitor-trips of the rural population but only about 30% for the urban population.
For the urban population, 49% of overnight visitor-trips were to a place outside one’s
district but within one’s state; for the rural population, 28% of overnight visitor-trips were
of this kind. 21% of urban and 6% of rural overnight visitor-trips involved travel beyond
one’s state.
Number of places visited: For every 100 trips made to a destination outside one’s state,
about 150 places were visited. For every 100 trips made to a destination outside one’s
district but within one’s state, about 119 places were visited. For every 100 trips made to a
destination within one’s district, about 104 places were visited.

VISITOR CHARACTERISTICS AND VISITOR-SPECIFIC CHARACTERISTICS OF TRIPS

Gender profile: Among every 1000 overnight visitors, 537 were males and 463 were
females for the urban sector while 525 were males and 475 females for the rural sector.
Among same-day visitors the male-female break-up did not differ much across sectors and
was about 55:45.
Visitor purpose: The break-up of overnight or same-day visitor-trips by the purpose that
led the visitor to make the trip did not differ appreciably from the break-up of overnight/
same-day trips by leading purpose.

ii
NSS Report No. 536: Domestic Tourism in India, 2008-09 
Highlights
Mode of travel: Buses were the dominant mode of travel for overnight and same-day trips
alike, accounting for two-thirds (67%) of overnight visitor-trips of the rural population,
57% of overnight visitor-trips by the urban population, and 57-61% of same-day visitor-
trips of the rural and urban populations. About 21% of same-day visitor-trips, for both rural
and urban sectors, were by own transport.
Trains were used as the major mode of travel for 27% of overnight visitor-trips by urban
Indians; for rural Indians their share in overnight visitor-trips was 7%. Trains were also
used in 9% of same-day visitor-trips by urban Indians but their share was only 2% for rural
Indians.
Type of stay: In case of 85% of rural and 80% of urban overnight visitor-trips, the visitors
stayed with friends and relatives for the major part of their stay.

OCCURRENCE OF DOMESTIC TOURISM ACTIVITY IN A ONE-YEAR PERIOD

About 77% of the population of both rural and urban sectors took part in at least one
overnight trip during a one-year period. For same-day trips the proportion of population
making at least one trip was about 76% in rural India and 70% in urban India.
Households in which at least one member had made an overnight trip during the past one
year formed 92% of all households (about 93% in the rural sector and 90% in the urban
sector).
As many as 96% of rural households, but only 86% of urban households, had at least one
member who had taken part in a same-day trip during the past one year, the overall
percentage for India being 93%.
The percentage of households with at least one member making an overnight trip during
the past one year did not vary appreciably with household occupation, household social
group or household religion. Nor was there any clear pattern of variation with household
economic level.

EXPENDITURE ON TRIPS

At all-India level, average expenditure per overnight trip was Rs.821 for the rural
population and Rs.1,636 for the urban population.
Overnight trips with ‘social’ leading purpose had a per-trip expenditure of Rs.466 (43%
lower than the average trip considering all purposes) for the rural population and Rs.989
for the urban population (40% lower than average). Overnight trips for ‘health and
medical’ purposes were four times as expensive as the average trip for both rural and urban
populations. The urban population’s overnight trips for ‘holidaying, leisure and recreation’
were on the average more than three times as expensive, and its ‘business’ trips twice as
expensive as the average trip considering all purposes. In both sectors, religious trips had a
per-trip expenditure close to, but slightly higher than, the all-purposes average.

NSS Report No. 536: Domestic Tourism in India, 2008-09 
Highlights
Average expenditure per overnight visitor-trip was Rs.369 in rural India and Rs.715 in
urban India.
Average expenditure per overnight visitor-trip made for ‘social’ reasons was only Rs.202
in rural India and Rs.418 in urban India. In urban India ‘religious and pilgrimage’ trips had
an average expenditure per visitor-trip of Rs.699, lower than the all-purposes average.
In both rural and urban India, ‘social’ purpose trips accounted for about 43% of all
overnight trip expenditure. Trips for ‘health and medical’ purposes had a share of 30% in
overnight trip expenditure for the rural population and 15% for the urban. ‘Religious and
pilgrimage’ trips had a share of about 11% in the rural sector and about 14% in the urban.
The share of transport in overnight trip expenditure was 20% in rural India but as much as
33% in urban India. The share of shopping was 30% in rural India and 25% in urban India.
The share of recreation, religious, cultural, sporting and health-related expenditure was as
high as 32% in rural India but only 15% in urban India.
The share of food and drink in overnight trip expenditure was about 9-10% for both rural
and urban India. The share of accommodation was 3% in rural India and about 6%
(excluding payments made as part of a ‘package’) in urban India.
For same-day trips, shopping was the largest component of expenditure, accounting for
60% of expenditure in case of the rural population and 44% in case of the urban.
For ‘social’ overnight trips, shopping expenditure formed 51% of the total in rural India
and about 38% in urban India. For the urban population, transport commanded the largest
share of expenditure (around 43%) for both ‘social’ and ‘religious and pilgrimage’ trips.
The share of recreation, religious, cultural, sporting and health-related expenditure for the
rural population was over 78% in ‘health and medical’ trips but under 10% in ‘religious’
trips and lower still in trips for ‘social’ visits.
Of the total expenditure by households on domestic tourism, expenditure on overnight trips
accounted for 61% – 36% being incurred by rural and 25% by urban households. Same-day
trips had a share of 39% in total expenditure, 30% incurred by rural and 9% by urban
households. Thus, of the total domestic tourism expenditure, the share of the rural
households was about two-thirds (66%).

Chapter One
Introduction
1.1 The report in perspective
1.1.1 An all-India household survey on domestic tourism during the period July 2008 to June
2009 was carried out by the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO),National Statistical
Organisation,Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation,Government of India, as
part of the 65th round of National Sample Survey (NSS). The data were collected through a
schedule of enquiry (Schedule 21.1).The aim, inter alia, was to provide estimates of the
volume of domestic tourism in terms of number of visitors (i.e. persons performing trips),
number of households undertaking domestic tourism activity and number of trips that
contributed to domestic tourism in India. It was also intended to study domestic tourism
activity by different population categories such as age, economic level, activity status,
occupation and industry of work, etc.; characteristics of trips such as purpose, main
destination, etc. and the expenditure incurred by the households in domestic tourism activity.
Based on the data collected during the survey period (July 2008 - June 2009), estimates
pertaining to domestic tourism in India along with various characteristics associated with
these have been generated and presented in this report.

1.2 Background
1.2.1 Past Surveys: Domestic tourism has not been covered comprehensively in any earlier
NSS round. In the 54th round (January-June 1998) of NSS, one of the subjects covered was
tours involving overnight stay. The main household schedule of that round recorded details of
journeys on tours involving overnight stay undertaken by household members during a
specified period.
1.2.2 The results of the 54th round enquiry on travel (which included commuting to work or
for education as well as tours involving overnight stay) were published in NSS Report
No.450. The report, in its chapter on tours involving overnight stay, gave State-sector-wise
estimates of rate of occurrence of such journeys per 100 households and per 1000 population
in 60 days, distribution of journeys by mode of journey, distance travelled and purpose, and
average number of travellers, average duration of a journey and average expenditure on a
journey for each mode and purpose. Because of differences in the coverage of “tours
involving overnight stay” as studied in the 54th round survey from the “overnight trips” of the
65th round survey, it is not possible to compare the estimates from the two surveys in this
report.1
1.2.3 The present survey: Considering the significant impact of domestic tourism in the
national economy, as per the proposal of the Ministry of Tourism , the then Steering
Committee of NSSO decided to conduct an annual household survey on domestic tourism
during NSS 65th round.

                                                            
1
 The two main differences between the 54th round concept of tour involving overnight stay and the concept of overnight trip
adopted in the survey under study (65th round ) are: (i) movements within the regular routine of a person’s life (which
included commuting) were excluded from the coverage of domestic tourism (that is, not considered trips) in the 65th round
and (ii) expenditure on tours in the 54th round included only expenditure on passenger transport, whereas in the 65th round all
expenditure related to the trip and made before, after, or during the trip were included.

Chapter One: Introduction 

1.3 Scope of the present survey


1.3.1 Items of enquiry: In the present survey on domestic tourism, a schedule of enquiry
(Schedule 21.1) was used for collection of data from the sample households. Data were
collected on household characteristics such as household size, principal industry, principal
occupation, household type, religion, social group, household consumption expenditure,
number of overnight trips and same-day trips undertaken by the household, visits, (if any) of
NRIs to the household and their impact, renting out of some portion of the house to tourists
during the last 365 days, and awareness, source of information, and impact of the “Incredible
India” campaign by the Government of India or other tourism promotional campaigns.
1.3.2 Data were also collected for each household member on age, sex, marital status,
educational level, usual principal activity status, industry (NIC) and occupation (NCO) of
employed members, number of overnight trips completed during (a) last 30 days and (b) last
365 days and number of same-day trips completed by the member during (a) last 30 days and
(b) last 365 days.
1.3.3 For each overnight trip and each same-day trip made during the last 30 days by one or
more household members, two kinds of data were collected. One was trip characteristics,
which included leading purpose of the trip, main destination, number of places visited,
number of household members going on the trip along with month(s) of visit for the trip. The
other was the characteristics corresponding to different trip members such as mode of travel,
type of stay, and number of nights spent outside usual place of residence (including journey),
the last item being collected for overnight trips only.
1.3.4 For the latest three overnight trips completed during the last 30 days, detailed data were
collected on particulars of expenditure on different items under the broad heads of
accommodation; food and drink; transport; shopping; recreation; religious, cultural, sporting
and health-related activities; and other expenditure, along with information on
reimbursement/direct payment by any institution for such trips. For same-day trips, instead of
separate break-ups of expenditure for the latest three different trips, the break-up of total
expenditure incurred on all same-day trips completed during last 30 days was recorded.
1.3.5 Choice of reference period: For a subject such as domestic tourism, the choice of the
length of the period for which data are to be sought is always a difficult one. Too short a
period makes the data vulnerable to sampling fluctuations. On the other hand, a long
reference period creates problems of recall lapse, especially when it is not only the number of
trips made during the period but also various details of each trip undertaken that have to be
studied. In this survey, a combination of reference periods was used in the sense that while
number of trips made by each household member was recorded with a reference period of
‘last 365 days’ (and used to build up various measures of the level of tourism activity), the
various characteristics of trips such as purpose, destination, mode of travel, etc., were, to
minimize recall lapse, recorded only for trips completed within the ‘last 30 days’ by the
members of the surveyed households. Details of expenditure relating to trips, as elaborated in
the last paragraph, were also recorded with reference to the trips completed within the ‘last 30
days’ only.
1.3.6 Geographical coverage: The survey covered the whole of the Indian Union except (i)
interior villages of Nagaland situated beyond five kilometres of the bus route and (ii) villages
in Andaman and Nicobar Islands which remain inaccessible throughout the year.

Chapter One: Introduction 

1.4 Outline of the survey


1.4.1 Period of survey and work programme: The fieldwork of the 65th round of NSSO
started from 1st July 2008 and continued till 30th June 2009. As usual, the survey period of
this round was divided into four sub-rounds, each with a duration of three months. An equal
number of sample villages/blocks (first-stage units or FSUs), as far as possible, was allotted
for survey in each of these four sub-rounds.
1.4.2 Method of data collection: The survey used the recall-based interview method using a
schedule for data collection from a sample of randomly selected households. The sample
design based on which selection of households was made is briefly stated in the following
sub-section.
1.4.3 Central and State samples: As is usual, the Governments of different States and UTs
participated in the survey by canvassing Schedule 21.1 in a separately drawn sample of
villages and blocks called the State sample, as distinct from the Central sample surveyed by
NSSO officials. For Leh (Ladakh) and Kargil districts of Jammu & Kashmir there were no
separate sample first-stage units for the ‘Central sample’. For these two districts, the villages
and blocks drawn as ‘State sample’ were themselves used for drawing the Central sample of
households.

1.5 Sampling design


1.5.1 A stratified multi-stage design was adopted for the 65th round survey. The first-stage
units (FSUs) were the 2001 census villages (panchayat wards in case of Kerala) in the rural
sector and Urban Frame Survey (UFS) blocks in the urban sector. For towns with no UFS
frame available, each town was treated as an FSU. The ultimate stage sampling units, in both
sectors, were the households. In case of large FSUs, one intermediate stage of sampling was
the division of the FSU into a number of parts and random selection of one part for survey.
As regards the sample size, 12952 first stage units (FSUs) – 8,188 villages and 4,764 urban
blocks – were allocated at all-India level for the Central sample. Of these, 8,109 villages and
4,719 urban blocks were actually surveyed.
1.5.2 For canvassing the detailed enquiry Schedule 21.1, a sample of 12 households ( second
stage units) was planned to be surveyed from each selected village and urban block. In the
Central sample, 1,53,308 households were actually surveyed – 97,074 in rural areas and
56,234 in urban areas. Statement 1.0 presents the number of villages and urban blocks
allotted and finally surveyed for NSS 65th round besides the numbers of sample households
and persons surveyed for Sch.21.1.
1.5.3 Details of sampling design and estimation procedure are given in Appendix B.

1.6 Contents of the Report

Chapter One: Introduction 

1.6.3 The analysis has been done primarily at all-India level while the corresponding state
level estimates of a few key parameters have been summarised in the state-level statements.
By and large, ratios obtained from the survey are presented, while the aggregates of
population/household are given as marginal row/column totals in the detailed Appendix
tables.

1.6.4 The estimates, in this report, are generally presented as ratios. However, the estimates
of aggregates are also given in the margin of the detailed tables in Appendix A2 . In order to
facilitate the users to derive aggregates corresponding to projections of population made by
the Office of the Registrar General of India (RGI) , projected population as on 1st March 2008
and 1st March 2009 supplied by the RGI Office is given in Appendix D, along with those
projected for 1st January 2009 using compound rate of growth. The projections have been
given separately for male and female population of rural and urban sectors.

In the detailed tables, however, in some of the deeper classifications, some sample sizes may be small and this may have a
bearing on the precision of the corresponding estimates.

Chapter Two
Concepts and Definitions

2.0 Important concepts and definitions used in this survey as given in the instructions to field
staff conducting the survey are stated below.

2.1 Household: A group of persons who normally lived together and took food from a
common kitchen constituted a household. The adverb “normally” meant that the temporary
visitors and guests (whose total period of stay in the household was expected to be less than 6
months) were excluded but the temporary stay-aways (whose total period of absence from the
household was expected to be less than 6 months) were included. Thus a child residing in a
hostel for studies was excluded from the household of his/her parents, but a resident domestic
servant or paying guest (but not just a tenant in the house) was included in the
employer’s/host’s household. “Living together” was given more importance than “sharing
food from a common kitchen” in drawing the boundaries of a household in case the two
criteria were in conflict. However, in the special case of a person taking food with his family
but sleeping elsewhere (say, in a shop or a different house) due to shortage of space, the
household formed by such a person’s family members was taken to include the person also.
Each inmate of a hotel, mess, boarding-lodging house, hostel, etc., was considered to be a
single-member household except that a family living in a hotel (say) was considered one
household only. The same principle was applicable for the residential staff of such
establishments. The size of a household is the total number of persons in the household.

2.2 Monthly per capita consumer expenditure (MPCE): For a household, MPCE was the
total consumer expenditure over all items divided by the household size and expressed on a
per month (30 days) basis.

2.2.1 As it is difficult to collect reliable income data, the NSSO, collects data on consumption
expenditure in its surveys. In the present survey on Domestic Tourism (Schedule 21.1), data
on household consumer expenditure during the last 30 days was ascertained through five
questions (see Appendix C), to facilitate the ordering of households in respective level of
living for deeper synthesis of survey results. This helps in portraying the survey variables in
the hierarchy of levels of living of the households classified as quintile classes of MPCE.

2.2.2 Quintile classes of MPCE: The population of any region or domain can be divided
into five quintile classes of MPCE, where the 1st quintile of the distribution of MPCE means
the level of MPCE below 20 per cent of the population lie, the second quintile, the level
below which 40 per cent of the population lie, and so on. In this round quintiles were
estimated separately for the distribution of MPCE in the rural and urban sector of each
State/U.T and all-India. Some of the aspects of domestic tourism have been studied with
respect to the level of living of the households which was proxied by monthly per capita
consumer expenditure. This ordering of the households in respect of level of living has been
derived as the distribution of the households in the quintile classes corresponding to the
distribution of the population in the quintile classes.

NSS Report No. 536: Domestic Tourism in India, 2008-09
 
Chapter Two: Concepts and Definitions 

2.3 Travel: It is the movement of persons between different geographic boundaries, for any
purpose and any duration. Those who travel are referred to as travelers. Travel can occur
within a country (domestic travel) or involve more than one country (international travel).

2.4 Usual Place of Residence: The usual place of residence (UPR) of a person is the place
(village/town) where the person had been staying continuously for at least six months
immediately prior to the date of survey. Even if a person was not staying in the village/town
continuously for six months immediately prior to the date of survey but was then staying
there with intention to stay there continuously for six months then that place was taken as
his/her UPR.

2.5 Usual Environment: The usual environment (UE) of an individual referred to the
notional geographical space, extending beyond the UPR of an individual, within which he/she
moved in the course of his/her regular routine of life. By the term movement of a person
within his/her regular routine of life is meant the regular and frequent (nearly every day/
every week/every fortnight) movements of a person between his/her UPR and some place for
the purpose of work or study, visiting homes of friends or relatives, shopping centers,
religious places, centres of health care or any other facilities that might be at a substantial
distance away but nevertheless were regularly and frequently visited. Such movements might
be within his/her UPR or beyond it.

2.6 Trip

2.6.1 With reference to domestic tourism, the term trip related to those household members
who were resident Indians. It refers to the movement - for a duration of not more than six
months - by one or more household members traveling to a place outside their usual
environment (which includes the usual place of residence(UPR)) and return to their UPR
(a round trip) for purposes other than those of migration or getting employed or setting up of
residence in that place and which is outside their regular routine of life.

2.6.2 Thus, all movements of persons commuting regularly and frequently (nearly every day/
every week/every fortnight) between their UPR and some fixed places for the purpose of
work or study, visiting homes of friends or relatives, shopping centers, religious places,
centres of health care or any other facilities that might be at a substantial distance away but
nevertheless were regularly and frequently visited, were not considered as trips. Similarly, all
movements of persons, whose nature of activities within their regular routine of life involved
making movements outside their UPR to different places, like travelling salesmen, mobile
hawkers, medical representatives, on-board staff of airlines/railways or of buses, hired taxis,
etc were not considered as trips.

2.6.3 Exceptions for exclusion from the coverage of trip as mentioned above: All domestic
movements performed by air except for the purpose of migration or getting employed or
setting up of residence in that place were considered as trips even if such movements falls
within the regular routine of life of the visitor. However, domestic movements performed by
on-board aircraft crew as part of their duty were not considered as trips.

2.6.4 A trip might be made up of visits (i.e. stay for a purpose in a place visited during a trip –
details in sub-section 2.7) to different places. A trip might be single-member or multi-
member; in other words, a trip might be undertaken by one or more members of the sample
household with or without members of other households participating. Member(s) of sample

7
NSS Report No. 536: Domestic Tourism in India, 2008-09 
 
Chapter Two: Concepts and Definitions 

households participating in a trip were visitors (details in sub-section 2.7). A trip might be
same-day or overnight. An overnight trip was of duration at least one night outside the usual
environment. In case of a single night overnight trip, the night was spread over two
consecutive dates implying that it had started before and ended after twelve midnight.  A
same-day trip was a trip which did not cover even a single night i.e., the trip started and
ended on the same day (0000 hrs to 2359 hrs).

2.6.5 A trip was uniquely specified by its set of destinations, its leading purpose and its
starting and ending date (the last for overnight trips only).Some elaboration of various
features associated with a trip, be it single or multi-member, is in order .

2.6.5.1 In case of a multi-member trip for which the set of destinations differed slightly from
person to person (among those who undertook the trip) if the persons were together for most
of the time (duration of the trip), they were considered to be on the same trip. But if two
members of a household spent most of the time away from each other during the period since
leaving their residence to returning to their residence, then they were considered to have been
on two different trips even though their starting and returning dates were the same.

2.6.5.2 Main destination: The main destination of a trip was the place, visiting of which
was central to the decision to undertake the trip. However, if no such place could be
identified by the informant, the main destination was to be defined as the place where the
visitors spent most of their time during the trip. If the visitors spent the same amount of time
in two or more places during the trip, then the main destination is defined as the one among
these places that was the farthest from the usual place of residence of the visitors. The main
destination of a trip was same for all the members who undertook that trip.

2.6.5.3 Starting and ending dates: The starting (ending) month was the month of starting
(completing) of the trip. In case of a multi-member trip for which one (or more) member(s)
among those who went on a trip starting later - or returning earlier - than the others due to
other engagements, if both the starting date and the ending date for this member were
different from that of the rest of the members, then this member was considered to have
undertaken a different trip from the rest. However, if at least one of these two dates was the
same for this member as for the rest of the members, and the other date, too, did not differ
from that of the rest of the members by more than 3 days, then such a member was
considered to have gone on the same trip as the rest of the members. In these cases the
earliest starting date (latest ending date) was used to determine the starting month (ending
month).

2.6.5.4 Purpose of a trip: The purpose of a trip of a household member was that purpose
but for which he/she would not have undertaken the trip. In the survey, these purposes were
broadly categorized as: business; holidaying, leisure and recreation; social including visiting
friends and relatives, attending marriages, etc.; religious and pilgrimage; education and
training; health and medical ; shopping and others (e.g. volunteer work).

2.6.5.5 Leading purpose of a trip: The leading purpose of a trip as a whole was that
purpose without which none of the household members in that trip would have undertaken
the trip. There might be exceptional situations where no one purpose could be identified as
the leading purpose. For example, there could be two or more purposes, say, pilgrimage and
health, recorded for different trip members. In such a case, the leading purpose was identified

8
NSS Report No. 536: Domestic Tourism in India, 2008-09 
 
Chapter Two: Concepts and Definitions 

as that purpose which the informant considered to be the most important for performing the
trip. The leading purpose of a trip was the same for all the members who undertook that
trip.

2.6.5.6 Type of a trip : a trip could be of two types – package or non-package. The term
package trip as used in the survey is detailed below.

2.6.5.6.1 Package Trip: A package was a combination of transport and any one or more
chargeable travel services (e.g., accommodation, meals/food, entertainment and/or
sightseeing, etc.) and sold by tour operators through travel agencies or directly to final
consumers as a single product for a single price. The components of a package tour might be
pre-established or tailor-made, in which case, the visitor chooses a combination of services
he/she wishes to acquire from a pre-established list of such services. If such a package was
availed of for a major part of time in a trip, such a trip was considered as a package trip.

2.6.5.6.2 For the purpose of the survey, if the expenditure on transport and one or more
chargeable travel services availed for some time during the trip did not cover the whole trip
but covered only a minor time of the duration of the trip then such a trip was not considered
as package trip although the trip has a package component. Therefore, a trip which was not a
package trip could have both package and non-package components. Similarly, a package trip
could also contain non-package component in addition to its package component, e.g., a
visitor could avail himself of accommodation and other services in the package through some
tour operator but made some special sight-seeing arrangements in some places of visit in the
trip on his own. Thus, a package trip must have had a package component but not vice versa.

2.6.5.7 Mode of travel: Mode of travel refers to means of transport used by visitor(s) to
travel in a trip. The travel relevant here was the travelling done to cover the distances to the
destinations and not joyrides or movement for adventure, as in skiing or boating for pleasure,
or walking inside a museum, fort or maze. One or more of the following means of transport
were possible in a trip,viz.: on foot, bus, train(railways), ship/boat, air, own transport:
bicycle, two-wheeler, rickshaw, auto rickshaw, car/jeep, tractor/truck, animal driven
transport, transport equipment rental (hired transport): bicycle, two-wheeler, rickshaw, auto
rickshaw, car/jeep, tractor/truck, animal driven transport and others .

2.6.5.7.1 Major mode of travel : The means of transport by which maximum distance was
traveled was treated as ‘major’ mode of travel for that trip. In case more than one such mode
was there (e.g. train, air) for which equal distance was traveled then that means which was
more expensive was treated as ‘major’ mode of travel for that trip.

2.6.5.7.2 Minor mode of travel : The means of transport by which second maximum
distance was traveled was treated as ‘minor’ mode of travel for that trip .

2.6.5.8 Type of stay: The type of stay refers to the accommodation used for stay by
visitor(s) in a trip. Accommodation refers to the space, usually for paid lodging, where the
visitor(s) spent some considerable time for spending night, taking rest, spending some leisure
time, refreshing oneself, etc. during the trip. It could be: hotel, private guest house,
Government guest house, dharamshala, rented house, friends and relatives or others including
carriages / coaches.

NSS Report No. 536: Domestic Tourism in India, 2008-09 
 
Chapter Two: Concepts and Definitions 

2.6.5.8.1 Major type of stay: The category of accommodation where the highest number of
nights (for overnight trips) or maximum time (for same-day trips) was spent was treated as
‘major’ type of stay. In case more than one such category was there (e.g. hotel,
Dharmashala) where same no. of nights (equal length of time) was spent then that type which
was more expensive was treated as ‘major’ type of stay.

2.6.5.8.2 Minor type of stay: The category of accommodation where the second highest
number of nights for overnight trips - or second highest length of time for same-day trips-
was spent was treated as ‘minor’ type of stay.

2.6.5.7 No. of nights spent outside usual place of residence (including journey): This was
the number of nights spent by the visitor outside his/her usual place of residence from starting
of the trip to the completion of the trip, including the nights spent in transit.

2.6.5.9 No. of places visited during the trip: The ‘main destination’ was counted as a place
of visit. If two or more places were reported to have been visited which were in the same
town or in the same village, they were counted once only.

2.7 Visit: The term visit referred to the stay (overnight or same-day) for a purpose in a place
visited during a trip. The stay need not be overnight to qualify as a visit. Entering a
geographical boundary without stopping there for a purpose was considered as being in
transit and did not qualify as a visit to that area. It may be noted that a trip might consist
of visits to one or more places.

2.7.1 Visitor: A person performing a trip as elaborated above was termed a visitor in this
survey.

2.7.2 Domestic Visitor: A domestic visitor was a household member, who had completed a
‘trip’. In other words, a domestic visitor was a person (household member), residing in the
country, who traveled to a place within the country, outside his / her usual place of residence
and not as a part of his/her regular routine of life, for duration of not more than six
months at a time and completed the trip during the reference period and whose main purpose
of visit was other than (a) getting engaged in employment or taking up an occupation in that
place or (b) setting up of residence in that place or (c) migrating to that place.

2.7.3 Thus, from the purview of domestic visitors in the survey, the following were
excluded:

(i) persons commuting regularly and frequently (nearly every day, every week or every
fortnight) between their usual place of residence and place of work or study, visiting
frequently places within their current routine of life in the neighbouring areas(which might be
outside their UPR), for instance, visiting homes of friends or relatives, shopping centres,
religious places, centres of health care or any other facilities that might be at a distance but
nevertheless were regularly and frequently visited

(ii) persons arriving at a place, with or without a contract, to take up an occupation or to


engage in employment in that place

(iii) persons arriving at a place for setting up of residence in that place

10
NSS Report No. 536: Domestic Tourism in India, 2008-09 
 
Chapter Two: Concepts and Definitions 

(iv) persons who traveled to work temporarily (i.e. less than six months) in institutions within
the country

(v) foreigners resident in India

(vi) persons arriving at a place on migration or migrants. A migrant was a person whose place
of enumeration was different from his/her last usual place of residence (UPR)

(vii) persons, whose nature of activities within their regular routine of life involved making
movements outside their UPR to different places, like travelling salesmen, mobile hawkers,
medical representatives, on-board staff of airlines/ railways or buses, hired taxis etc.

2.7.4 On the other hand, the following were included in the purview of domestic visitors in
the survey:

(i) persons who completed a trip during the reference period and the duration of trip was not
more than six months

(ii) persons who were household members at the time of canvassing the schedule but were
not household members at the time of actually completing a trip within the reference period

(iii) persons on a trip for any of the following purposes: business; holidaying, leisure and
recreation; social including visiting friends and relatives, attending marriages, etc.); religious
and pilgrimage; education and training; health and medical; shopping; others (e.g. volunteer
work)

(iv) domestic component (not in transit) of the trip of a household member visiting a place
outside the country

2.7.5 Domestic visitors were classified into two categories: domestic overnight visitors and
domestic same-day visitors. In this survey, information was collected for both these
categories in respect of those visitors who belong to the sample households.

2.7.5.1 Domestic Overnight Visitor: A domestic overnight visitor was a domestic visitor
who spent at least one night in a trip during last 365 days. This means that the trip covered at
least two calendar days, wholly or partly.

2.7.5.2 Domestic Same-day Visitor: A domestic same-day visitor was a domestic visitor
who did not spend even a single night in any trip during last 365 days. This means that the
trip started and ended on the same day (0000 hrs to 2359 hrs).

2.7.6 Domestic Tourism: It covered trips of household members within the territory of India,
i.e of domestic visitors 1, either as a domestic trip or as part of an international trip.

 An important clarification regarding usage of the term ‘visitor’ as used in this survey : In this survey, a
household, say H-a, reporting a domestic visitor: overnight or same-day, was one whose at least one member
made a trip: overnight or same-day, during last 365 days. However, any non-member (of household H-a)
making a visit to household H-a is NOT a ‘visitor’ with respect to sample household H-a as per this
survey. Further, the survey being on domestic tourism in India, the term visitor and domestic visitor are one and
the same. Thus, throughout the remaining part of this report, the term visitor has been used.

Chapter Two: Concepts and Definitions 

2.8 Tourism Expenditure

2.8.1 For the purpose of this survey, tourism expenditure included expenditure made not just
during the trip but also the expenditure related to the trip even if made before or after the trip.
It included all expenses related to the trip paid or payable by the household. It also included
expenditure related to the trip, whether directly paid or reimbursed, by some institution like
Government or other agencies on behalf of the selected household. All expenditure in
connection with the trip except those used/intended to be used for productive
purposes/enterprises was included. All expenditure made by a sample household (whose
members were on a trip) on members of other households was included. But all expenditure
made by other households for any trip undertaken by a sample household was excluded.

2.8.2 Tourism expenditure was classified as (a) package component and (b) non-package
component, with the latter further sub-divided as: (i) accommodation (ii) food and drink (iii)
transport (iv) recreation, religious, cultural, sporting and health related activities (v) shopping
and (vi) others.

2.8.3 Tourism expenditure included (i) monetary expenditure on goods and services paid or
payable by the visitor out of his/her own pocket (ii) direct expenditure by the visitor
reimbursed by some institution like Government or other agencies or expenses of the visitor
directly paid by such institutions (iii) expenditure incurred on items of high unit values like
cars, computers, etc. related to a trip if those are used for consumption purpose and not for
productive purpose.

2.8.4 Tourism expenditure excluded (i) payment of taxes and duties not levied on products
(goods and services) (ii) purchase of financial and non-financial assets, including land, real
estate (iii) all transfers of cash or used goods such as donations to charities or to members of
other households as these do not correspond to the purchase of consumption goods or
services from these charities or individuals. Alms are also excluded.

2.9 Non-Resident Indian (NRI): Indian citizens (including officials of Indian diplomatic
missions abroad ) who stay abroad for employment or for carrying on business or vocation or
any other purpose indicating a period of stay abroad exceeding 6 months were considered as
Non-Resident Indian (NRI) for the purpose of this survey.

2.10 Major states: This refers to the 17 States of India that had a population of 20 million or
more according to the 2001 Census. Together these States accounted for 94.7% of India’s
population in 2001. They are: Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat,
Haryana, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Punjab,
Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.

Chapter Three
Characteristics of Domestic Tourism
3.0.1 The present chapter elucidates various aspects of domestic tourism based on the
information collected in the NSS 65th round, being confined to the framework of concepts
and definitions adopted in the survey. In this framework, the activity of domestic tourism
undertaken by the members of the households has two district features, viz. the trip and the
visitor. As elaborated in Chapter Two, the trip, either same-day or overnight, was the
ultimate unit to study the activity of domestic tourism and it related to the movement of one
or more members of the household to a main destination with a leading purpose. The
members of the households who happened to be the members of the trip are the visitors and
the information profiling the visitors was also collected in the survey. The salient
characteristics of domestic tourism activities presented in this chapter, accordingly, cover its
intensity and variations over different categories of households, visitors and trips.

3.0.2 The chapter presents the average number of trips made during a year by households
and persons in different States/UTs, and by persons of different ages, occupations and
industries. The break-up of trips (occasionally, of visitor-trips) by various trip characteristics
such as leading purpose, month of visit, and main destination type (within or outside
district/state) and the distribution of visitors by activity status, are also examined. Further, the
break-up of visitor-trips by important visitor-trip characteristics: purpose of visit, mode of
transport, and major place of stay, are studied. In other words, questions such as “Which were
the most common purposes for which people went on overnight trips?” “Which modes of
transport were most commonly used for same-day trips?” are answered. Estimates of
occurrence of domestic tourism activity are also presented in terms of percentages of persons
and households reporting at least one overnight/same-day trip during a one-year period – in
case of households, separately for different household occupations, social groups and
religions.

3.0.3 The findings presented in this chapter are grouped into four sections: (a) incidence and
characteristics of trips; (b) participation of various population groups; (c) visitor-trip
characteristics; and (d) occurrence of domestic tourism activity among households and
persons in a one-year period.

3.0.4 Two different reference periods – ‘last 30 days’ and ‘last 365 days’ preceding the date
of survey - were used for collecting information related to trips. However, the aggregate
estimates on trips and trip-related characteristics have been generated pertaining to a one-year
period unless otherwise specified and the procedure thereof is explained in the Appendix B
on ‘Sample Design and Estimation Procedure’.

SECTION A: INCIDENCE AND CHARACTERISTICS OF TRIPS

3.1. Incidence of trips per household

3.1.1 As stated earlier, a trip was the basic unit to study the activity of domestic tourism and
it corresponded to movement of the members of the households outside their usual place of
residence (excluding the movements which were part of the usual routine of life) with
distinctive leading purposes, destinations and other trip characteristics. Thus one of the
important measures of intensity of domestic tourism is the number of trips during one year
per household. On an average, four overnight trips in a year were undertaken by an Indian
13
NSS Report No. 536: Domestic Tourism in India, 2008-09
 
Chapter Three: Characteristics of Domestic Tourism 

household, with trips made by rural households marginally higher in number than their urban
counterpart (Statement 3.1). To be more precise, 418 overnight trips were undertaken per 100
households at all-India level – 440 trips per 100 households in rural areas and 365 in urban
areas.

3.1.2 The incidence of same-day trips among Indian households, at eight in a year, was thus
almost double that of overnight trips. The average number of same-day trips per 100
households during a year was noticeably higher in rural India (844) than in urban India (537).
The all-India average was 753.

3.1.3 The intensity of domestic tourism activity was also compared over States and was
found to show considerable variation. The State-wise incidence of average number of
overnight as well as same trips per 100 households is presented above in Statement 3.2.
Average number of overnight trips during a year per urban household in Jammu & Kashmir
and Himachal Pradesh was almost double the all-India average. In these two States, this
14
NSS Report No. 536: Domestic Tourism in India, 2008-09
 
Chapter Three: Characteristics of Domestic Tourism 

average was considerably higher in respect of rural households as well. As regards same-day
trips, the incidence was significantly higher in Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Kerala
and Orissa, in both rural and urban areas.

3.2 Trips: overnight and same-day


3.2.1 For the rural population of India, slightly over one-third (34.3%) of all trips were
overnight trips and nearly two-thirds (65.7%) were same-day trips (Statement 3.3). For the
urban population, the proportion of overnight trips was somewhat higher (40.5%), the
proportion of same-day trips being 59.5%.

Ref: Table 49 in Appendix A *last 365 days

3.2.2 Statement 3.4 shows inter-State and sectoral variation in the proportion of overnight
(and same-day) trips. The percentage of overnight trips for the rural population in every
major State1 except Kerala (24%) and Orissa (28%) was at least 30%, the highest percentages
being those of Haryana and Rajasthan (around 40%). As for the urban population of the
major States, the proportion of overnight trips was again lowest in Kerala (30%), and was
also below 35% in three other States – Assam, West Bengal and Orissa – the highest
proportion of overnight trips being reported by Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan and Karnataka
(47-48%).

3.2.3 The situation was almost reverse for same-day trips. Here, The percentage of same-day
trips for the rural population in every major State except Haryana and Rajasthan (both around
60%) was at least 61%, the highest percentages being those of Kerala (76%) and Orissa
(72%). As for the urban population of the major States, the proportion of same-day trips was
lowest in Andhra Pradesh and Rajasthan (about 52%), and above 65% in three other States –
Assam, West Bengal and Orissa – the highest proportion being reported by Kerala (70%).

3.3 Leading purpose of trips


3.3.1 In the survey, for each reported trip, a distinct leading purpose was identified. The
leading purpose of a trip was understood as the purpose in the absence of which the trip
would not have been undertaken. It was recognized that if the individual purposes of different
participants differed, there might be trips without a leading purpose in the above sense. Thus
two members on a trip might have had different purposes each strong enough to make the trip
possible even if the other person dropped out of the trip. In such cases the most important
purpose among the purposes of the individual participants, as perceived by the informant,
was identified as the leading purpose of the trip. The all-India break-up of overnight and
same-day trips by leading purpose is shown in Statement 3.5.

3.3.2 Leading purpose: overnight trips: By far the most common leading purpose of
overnight trips was social – this included visiting friends and relatives and attending
marriages. The social purpose accounted for 75% of overnight trips made by the rural
population and 71% of such trips made by the urban population. Religious trips and
pilgrimages accounted for 12% of urban and 9% of rural Indians’ overnight trips. Overnight
trips for health and medical purposes were more common in rural India, where they had a
share of 7.3% compared to 3.5% in urban India. 5% of the overnight trips of the urban
population and only 2% of those of rural population were reported to be for holidaying,
leisure and recreation.

3.3.3 Leading purpose: same-day trips: Social visits were the leading purpose of 38% of the
same-day trips of rural Indians and nearly 55% of those of urban Indians. Shopping – very
rarely the purpose of an overnight trip – was the leading purpose of 23% of same-day trips by
the rural population but less than 7% for the urban population. In both rural and urban India,
many more same-day trips were made for health and medical reasons (17% rural, 8% urban)
than overnight trips. Same-day trips were made for religious purposes slightly less often (6%
rural, 11% urban) than overnight trips were.

3.4 Month of visit


3.4.1 Taking the ‘month of visit’ as the ending month (in case the starting and ending months
are different), the percentage distribution of trips over months of the year is shown in
Statement 3.6. It may be noted that the estimates are based on information on trips made by
sample household members in the 30 days preceding the day the household was interviewed.
Since exactly equal numbers of households were not interviewed in every month of the
survey year, the numbers of trips recorded as made in January, February, etc. depend not only
on the real intensity of tourism activity during these months but also on the numbers of
households surveyed during these months and in the succeeding months (e.g. trips made in
January may be recorded by interviews taking place in January or in February). Under the
circumstances, it may not be appropriate to read too much into the month-to-month
differences in percentage of trips, which are not very large except that the figures for June for
both sectors, and the figures for July in the urban sector, are noticeably low compared to, say,
the figures for May or August.2 By and large, it is seen that 7-10% of trips were made in most
                                                            
2
It was mentioned that January (2009) trips would be recorded by interviews made in January or February
(2009). The case of June is a little different. June trips would be recorded by interviews made in July 2008 (June
2008 trips) and by interviews made in June 2009 (June 2009 trips). Because of the logistics of launching of
surveys, however, it is often the case that the survey work is not in full swing before the second half of July.
This would affect the estimates of not only June but also July, as July trips have to be recorded by interviews in
July and August.

offset by above-average shares in the months immediately following.

3.5 Trip duration


3.5.1 Statement 3.7 gives the average duration of overnight trips in number of nights,
separately for trips ending in different months. The duration of each reported trip was
ascertained by the survey in terms of the number of nights spent. On an average, the duration
of a trip was 3.1 nights for rural households and 4.2 nights for urban households. The average
duration of trips is seen to have greater variability over months in the urban sector, where it
varied from 3.5 in February and August to 5.6 in July. In the rural sector it was highest in
June at 3.4 and within 2.7 to 3.3 in all other months.

3.6 Package and non-package trips


3.6.1 Among the characteristics of trips identified was whether or not it was a package trip.
A package trip was one (see Chapter Two, paragraph 2.6.5.6.1) in which a package was
availed of for the major part of the duration of the trip. A package was a combination of
transport and any one or more chargeable travel services – e.g., accommodation, meals/food,
entertainment, sightseeing – and sold by tour operators through travel agencies or directly to
final consumers as a single product for a single price. (The components of a package tour
might be pre-established or tailor-made.) The survey revealed only a marginal presence of
package trips in domestic travel habits of Indian households.3 Statement 3.8 shows that only
1.3% of overnight trips for the urban population and 0.8% for the rural were package trips.
Among same-day trips, only 0.7% of trips by the urban population and 0.3% of those by the
rural population were of the package type.

3.7 Destination type


3.7.1 For each trip, a main destination was identified and classified according to whether it
was within the district to which the household residence belonged, or outside the district but
within the same State, or outside the State. This would enable the study of the relative
frequencies of trips by these three destination types. One may also study the relative
frequencies of visitor-trips by destination type (counting each trip as many times as the
number of participating members) and so get an idea of the relative volumes of visitor
movements of these three kinds. This, in fact, has been done in Statement 3.9.

3.7.2 Destination type: overnight trips: About 21% of urban, but only 6% of rural overnight
visitor-trips involved travel to a different state from their place of residence. In the majority
(66%) of overnight visitor-trips of the rural population, the visitors remained within their
district, while in 28%, they travelled beyond their district to a place within their state. Among
overnight visitor-trips of the urban population, it was journeys beyond one’s district (within
the state) that were more common (49%), with only about 30% that were limited within the
boundaries of the visitors’ district.

3.7.3 Destination type: same-day trips: Travel within one’s state accounted for nearly 99%
of rural and about 96% of urban same-day visitor-trips. About 33% of urban but only 9% of
rural same-day visitor-trips involved travel beyond the boundaries of the visitors’ district,
remaining within their state. The majority of same-day visitor-trips – nearly 90% in rural and
63% in urban India – kept the visitors within the district of their residence.

It should be noted, however, that many non-package trips might have had a package component.

3.8 Number of places visited per overnight trip


3.8.1 Another parameter of interest in the activity of domestic tourism is the number of
places visited per trip. This indicator is more relevant for overnight trips. The estimated
average number of places (towns or villages) visited per overnight trip was studied by sector
of location of the visitor household and main destination type; the results are shown in
Statement 3.10. The estimates show negligible variation over sectors. It is seen that for every
100 trips made to a main destination outside the visitor household’s state, about 150 places
were visited. For every 100 trips to outside-district but within-state destinations, about 118
places were visited (about 6 places visited for every 5 trips), while trips within one’s district
rarely saw more than one place visited.

3.9 Trip size and leading purpose


3.9.1 A trip would comprise one or a group of members of a household. Hence, in studying
the characteristics of trips, it is also worthwhile to look into the question of how many
persons travelled together on a trip. In other words, it is relevant to examine the average trip
size in terms of the average number of household members per trip. The number of household
members participating in a trip reported by a household could vary from 1 to the size of the
household. Statement 3.11 gives an idea of the average trip size by presenting the average
number of visitors per 100 trips, separately for same-day and overnight trips, and separately
for overnight trips with different leading purposes. In rural areas, every 100 overnight trips
had 223 participating members (2.2 per trip) and every 100 same-day trips had 183 members
(1.8 per trip). In urban areas, every 100 overnight trips had 232 participants (2.3 per trip) and
every 100 same-day trips had 200 participants (2.0 per trip).

3.9.2 As expected, average size of the group travelling on an overnight trip varied
noticeably with the leading purpose of the trip. Business trips and trips for education and
training had the smallest number of members travelling together (about 130 per 100 trips for
both rural and urban areas) and shopping trips, too, had only 135-140 members per 100 trips.
On the other hand, about 230 members (2.3 per trip) travelled in every 100 social or religious
trips of rural households and every 100 social trips of urban households, and as many as 275
members (2.75 per trip) travelled in every 100 religious trips of urban households.

SECTION B: PARTICIPATION OF VARIOUS POPULATION GROUPS

3.10.0 As stated earlier, the trips recorded for a sample household were movements in which
members of the household had participated. Various characteristics of each household
member such as age, occupation, etc. were also recorded as part of the survey. This
personwise information enables the study of participation in domestic tourism activity by
different population categories.

3.10 Overall incidence per person


3.10.1 A distinction evident in the incidence of trips undertaken in a year by persons in rural
and urban areas is that the incidence was appreciably higher for rural persons in case of same-
day trips but of the same order for both sectors in case of overnight trips. The average number
of overnight trips made by a person (Statement 3.12) was estimated as 2.10 for rural Indians
and 2.07 for urban Indians. The average number of same-day trips was considerably higher,
especially in rural India (3.30) and also in urban India (2.63).

3.11 The gender effect


3.11.1 Statement 3.12 also brings out male-female differences in number of trips per person.
For overnight trips the average for females, in both sectors, was below the average for males
by about 30 per 100 persons. Male-female differences were wider for same-day trips, with
rural females making 266 same-day trips per 100 persons while rural males made 389 (46%
more). Urban females made 226 same-day trips per 100 persons while urban males made 297
(31% more).

3.11.2 Gender profile of visitors: As an overnight/ same-day visitor is understood as a person


who made at least one overnight/ same-day trip during the reference period of ‘last 365 days’,
the population of overnight or same-day visitors can be identified and various characteristics
studied. One matter of interest here would be the gender profile of visitors, shown by their
male-female break-up. This is given in Statement 3.13. Thus, among every 1000 overnight
urban visitors, 537 were males and 463, and the proportion of males was slightly lower
among rural overnight visitors, but higher for same-day visitors – both rural and urban –
among whom the male-female ratio was about 55 to 45 in the urban sector and slightly lower
in the rural sector.

Ref: Tables 30 and 35 in Appendix A

3.12 The effect of age


3.12.1 Statement 3.14 shows the variation with age in average number of trips made by a
person. In all,18 age-groups are considered, all of width 5 years except the last. For both
overnight and same-day trips, the average number of trips per person is seen to rise gradually
up to a certain age-group and then decline, the decline being steeper for overnight trips. The
average number of both overnight and same-day trips made by children was higher than the
average number of trips made by the aged. Younger children made more trips than older
ones, presumably because they could not be left alone by their parents; thus the average
number of trips falls instead of rising as one moves up the age range from 0-4 to 10-14. This
was true for rural as well as urban India. In rural India the average number of trips, both
overnight and same-day, was highest in the age-group 30-34; in urban India it was highest in
the age-group 40-44. An interesting phenomenon regarding trips made by the elderly was
revealed in this study. In case of overnight trips, persons of age 60 years and above had a
lower average per year than the all-ages average both in rural and urban sectors. However, in
case of same-day trips of the rural population, even elderly persons in the age group 65-69
made more trips per year than the rural all-ages average of 3.30 per person. In urban areas,
the age-group 60-64 was the oldest group to surpass the all-ages average of 2.63 same-day
trips per year.

3.13 Variation with occupation


3.13.1 Statement 3.15 shows variation with occupation in the average number of overnight
and same-day trips in a one-year period, with nine occupational categories of households
considered.4 It is seen that for all the categories listed, the average number of trips, whether
overnight or same-day, was higher than the average (“all” row) for the population of the
sector (rural/urban) as a whole, implying that the persons with no occupation made fewer
trips on the average than the working or gainfully employed population. This is not surprising
in view of the fact that the aged, as well as children of the 5-14 age-group, who would form a
sizeable proportion of those without any occupation, made fewer trips on the average than the
rest of the population (see previous paragraph). Among the gainfully employed, the
professionals and associate professionals made trips more frequently than the rest, and so did
clerks. Skilled agricultural and fishery workers had the highest average number of same-day
trips (4.21) in urban India, but did not enjoy this distinction in case of overnight trips or the
rural sector.

                                                            
4
The “all” row of Statement 3.15 covers not only these nine categories but the entire population, including the
residual category “persons with blank occupation (NCO) code”. This includes persons too young or too old to
work, housewives, students, pensioners, rentiers, remittance receivers, beggars, prostitutes and other persons not
gainfully employed. No estimate of average number of trips was generated for this heterogeneous category. The
“all” estimate also takes into account those sample persons for whom the occupation code was not recorded.

3.14 Variation with industry


3.14.1 Statement 3.16 shows variation with industry of employment (NIC industry group) in
average number of overnight and same-day trips during a one-year period. As in case of
occupation, “all” includes those with blank industry code, which applies to all those not
gainfully employed. Again it is clear, from a comparison of the “all” row figures with the
rows for specific industries, that, with the exception of persons employed by private
households5, persons not gainfully employed in any industry made fewer trips on an average
than the gainfully employed population. Variation over industry groups in number of trips per
person was relatively low for overnight trips and a little more prominent in case of same-day
trips, especially in the rural sector. Among the gainfully employed, there were no striking
inter-industry differences in case of overnight trips. In rural India, those employed in
“electricity, gas and water supply”, “financial intermediation”, “education”, “health and
social work”, and “real estate, renting and business activities” had higher averages than other
industry groups – 3 or more overnight trips in a year, and 6 or more same-day trips in a year.

3.15 Distribution of visitors by broad activity status


3.15.1 A related point of interest is the percentage break-up of visitors by broad activity
status: that is, into the categories “employed”, “unemployed”, and “out of labour force”.
Statement 3.17 shows this break-up for both overnight and same-day trips, and, side by side,
the shares of these three categories in the entire population. It is seen that the percentage
share of the “out of labour force” category in the number of overnight visitors for rural and
urban India is about 2 to 3 percentage points lower than the share of this category in the entire
population, and the share of the same category in the number of same-day visitors is about 7
percentage points lower than its share in the entire population. The share of the other major
group, the employed, in overall population is, correspondingly, lower than its share in the
number of overnight and same-day visitors. This finding is not surprising in view of the
results presented above on number of trips by different age-groups and the fact that the “not
in labour force” category would include large numbers of the aged and children too young to
work.

SECTION C: VISITOR-TRIP CHARACTERISTICS

3.16.0 The classification of trips by characteristics of trips such as leading purpose of trip
and month of visit was studied in Section A of this chapter. Certain features of trips,
however, differ not only from trip to trip but, for the same trip, may vary from one participant
to another – and therefore were recorded separately by the survey for each trip for each
participant. These include (major) mode of travel, major place of stay, and even purpose of
the visitor (as distinct from leading purpose, which is fixed for a particular trip). These
characteristics are termed visitor-trip characteristics as they may vary with each visitor-trip
combination. It follows that the relative frequencies of reporting of each category of reported
purpose, or reported mode of travel, should be counted in terms of number of visitor-trips,
rather than in terms of number of trips or visitors. This is done in this section, where the
relative prevalence of different purposes, modes of travel, etc., is discussed.

3.16 Visitor purpose


3.16.1 Visitor purpose: overnight trips: The estimated break-up of trips by leading purpose
– the purpose in the absence of which the trip would not have been undertaken – has already
been discussed in Section 3.3. The reason prompting some of the participants to make the trip
may, however, differ from the leading purpose. Statement 3.18 shows the all-India percentage
break-up of rural/urban visitors-trips6 by visitor purpose, separately for overnight and same-
                                                            
6
Sometimes words such as “percentage of visitors” have been used in this section for simplicity; it should be
remembered, however, that strictly speaking, it is “visitor-trips” that are being counted here, or, in other words,
that a visitor is counted as many times as the number of trips he or she made.

Chapter Three: Characteristics of Domestic Tourism 

day trips. By far the commonest purpose reported by persons who made overnight trips was
social. This purpose alone prompted 77% of rural and 73% of urban overnight visitors to
make their trips. Religious purposes, including pilgrimages, accounted for 9% of rural and
about 15% of urban visitors, health and medical purposes for 7% of rural and 3% of urban
visitors, and holidaying, leisure and recreation for about 2% of rural and 5% of urban
visitors.

Ref: Tables 40& 45 in Appendix A

3.16.2 Visitor purpose: same-day trips: Statement 3.18 shows that for same-day visitors, the
predominant purpose of trips was again social, but that the share of the social purpose was
smaller, especially for the rural population (about 40%) and also for the urban (about 56%).
For the rural population this was explained by the much larger shares of health and medical
and shopping (about 19% each). The same two purposes together accounted for about 14% of
the visitor-trips for the urban population.

3.16.3 Leading purpose and visitor purpose: Comparison of Statement 3.18 with Statement
3.5 does not reveal any striking differences in the break-up of trips by leading purpose from
the break-up of visitor-trips by visitor purpose. For both overnight and same-day trips, the
percentage of trips with leading purpose business is smaller than the percentage of visitor-
trips where the visitor’s purpose is business. This is not surprising as (a) the average number
of persons travelling together on a business trip is smaller (see paragraph 3.9.2) than the
average number of persons travelling together on a social trip, and (b) a business trip may
occasionally include one or more household members whose purpose of travel is health or
shopping, but the converse would be relatively rare.

3.17 Mode of travel


3.17.1 As a typical trip involves more than one mode of transport, it needs to be clarified
that it is the major mode reported for each visitor – in other words, the mode by which the
visitor covered the longest distance – that is being referred to here. Statement 3.19 gives the
percentage distribution of visitor-trips by mode of travel separately for overnight and same-
day trips made by rural and urban Indians.

3.17.2 Buses were the dominant mode of travel for overnight and same-day trips alike,
accounting for two-thirds (67%) of overnight trips7 by the rural population, 57% of trips by
the urban population, and 57-61% of same-day trips by the rural and urban populations.
Trains were used for 27% of overnight trips by urban Indians; for rural Indians their share in

overnight trips was 7%. Trains were also used in 9% of same-day trips by urban Indians but
their share was only 2% for rural Indians.

3.17.3 Rented transport8 had a larger share in rural areas than in urban: 10% for overnight
trips (5% in urban areas) and over 12% for same-day trips (8.5% in urban areas). Three types
of owned transport – bicycles, motorized two-wheelers and motor cars (including jeeps) –
together accounted for 19% of same-day trips in both rural and urban India, with the share of
the bicycle and the motor car, of course, differing substantially between the sectors. The
motorized two-wheeler (owned) accounted for 7% of same-day trips in rural areas and nearly
9% in urban areas. Urban people used their own motorcars or jeeps for about 5% of overnight
trips and about 9% of same-day trips. About 9% of same-day trips in rural India were made
on bicycles.

3.18 Major type of stay


3.18.1 For a visitor on a trip, this refers to the type of accommodation : hotel, guest house,
etc., where the visitor spent the greatest number of nights for overnight trips or maximum
time for same-day trips. For same-day trips, the estimates (Statement 3.20) are not of great
interest as the majority – 82% in rural areas and 74% in urban – did not stay anywhere on the
trip,9 while most of those who did, stayed with friends and relatives. For overnight trips, an
overwhelmingly large number of visitors (strictly, visitor-trips) – 85% in rural areas and 80%
in urban areas – reported that their major type of stay was with friends and relatives. This is,
of course, not surprising in view of the fact that 77% of trips of urban visitors and 73% of
trips of rural visitors were for a social purpose (Section 3.16). It would appear from the
estimates that friends and relatives provided accommodation not only when trips were for
such purposes but, frequently, for other (for example, religious) purposes as well. Hotels
were the major type of stay for an estimated 1.3% of rural and less than 5% of urban
overnight visitors, and dharamshalas for about 3% of rural and 4% of urban overnight
visitors.

Note that owned transport and transport rented for private use were classified separately in the schedule of
enquiry. In Tables 43 and 47 in Appendix A, estimates are given separately for different forms of owned
transport but not for different forms of rented transport.

Same-day trips are those that started and ended on the same day (0000 hours to 2359 hours).

SECTION D: OCCURRENCE OF DOMESTIC TOURISM ACTIVITY IN A ONE-


YEAR PERIOD
3.19 Measures of occurrence
3.19.1 Instead of measuring the level of tourism activity in terms of number of trips per
household or per person, an alternative way would be to measure the proportion of persons or
households participating (at least once) in trips during a period such as one year. We may call
this a measure of the occurrence of tourism activity among households or persons.
3.19.2 It may be observed that the choice of the period during which occurrence of tourism
activity is to be observed in households or persons will affect the quality of the measure that
is being proposed here. Too short a period will render the measure vulnerable to sampling
fluctuations. If, on the other hand, too long a period is chosen, near-100% occurrence rates
(nearly all households or persons reporting at least one trip) will be observed for every
category of households and persons, which means the measure will be insensitive, failing to
discriminate between states or between socio-economic categories in respect of level of
tourism activity. In this survey, a period of ‘last 365 days’ was used to observe the occurrence
of tourism activity, giving rise to estimates of occurrence during a one-year period.

3.20 Occurrence among persons


3.20.1 As explained above, one measure of the intensity of tourism activity is provided by
the percentage of persons who made at least one trip (overnight/ same-day) during the
last one year (or percentage of visitors). This percentage is occasionally referred to as TP(O)
for overnight trips and TP(S) for same-day trips.

3.20.2 Statement 3.21 shows all-India levels of TP(S) and TP(O) for rural and urban areas
separately and for the two sectors combined. It reveals that at the all-India level, the
percentage of persons reporting at least one overnight trip in the last one year was around
77% and roughly the same for rural and urban areas. Further, the percentage of persons
reporting at least one same-day trip during the last one year was 75.6% in rural areas but
appreciably less – about 70% – in urban areas. The overall percentage – rural and urban
considered together – was 74%.

3.20.3 The propensity to engage in the activity of domestic tourism has considerable inter-
State variation. This inter-State variation in TP(S) and TP(O) is shown in Statement 3.22 for
both rural and urban sectors as well as for the entire area of each State. The main features are
stated below.
 The percentage of population taking part in at least one overnight trip during the past one
year varied from 60% to 90% for all States and UTs except Assam (50%), five of the
North-Eastern States (20-45%), and two UTs (see column 3 of the statement). For 20
States and UTs, the TP(O) was between 70% and 85%.
 The percentage of population reporting at least one same-day trip varied between 64%
and 83% for 22 States and UTs, and between 64% and 92% for all States and UTs except
for 4 of the North-Eastern States, 2 UTs and Bihar (54%).
 The absolute difference between same-day and overnight figures TP(S) and TP(O) (rural
and urban sectors combined) was within 12 percentage points in nearly all major States,
the exceptions being Assam and Kerala, where TP(S) exceeded TP(O) by about 21 and 13
respectively.
 The absolute difference between rural and urban percentages of persons reporting at least
one overnight trip was within 9 percentage points in all the major States.
 The percentage of rural population reporting at least one same-day trip, which exceeded
the urban percentage at all-India level by 5 (rural TP(S)=75.6, urban TP(S)=70.3), also

29
NSS Report No. 536: Domestic Tourism in India, 2008-09
 
Chapter Three: Characteristics of Domestic Tourism 

exceeded the urban percentage by 10 in West Bengal, 12.5 in Punjab, 19 in Rajasthan,


20 in Andhra Pradesh, and 21 in Maharashtra.
 In the North-Eastern region, with the exception of Sikkim and Tripura, all the TP(S) and
TP(O) values – rural and urban – were low, especially in Mizoram (26 or less), Manipur
and Arunachal Pradesh (below 46), and Nagaland (57 or less), suggesting that poor
communication facilities remained a significant barrier to domestic tourism.

3.21 Occurrence among households


3.21.1 Like percentage of persons reporting trips, the percentage of households where at
least one member made a trip (overnight/ same-day) during the last one year provides a
measure of the intensity of tourism activity. This percentage is occasionally referred to as
TH(O) for overnight trips and TH(S) for same-day trips.

Statement 3.23: Percentage of households reporting overnight and same-day trips* : all-India
Percentage of households reporting trips
Kind of trip
rural urban rural+urban
Overnight 92.6 89.9 91.8
Same-day 96.0 85.7 92.9
Ref: Tables 2 & 4 in Appendix A *last 365 days

3.21.2 Statement 3.23 shows all-India levels of TH(S) and TH(O) for rural and urban areas
separately and for the two sectors combined. It is seen from the statement that at all-India
level, the percentage of households reporting at least one trip in the last one year was 92.9%
for same-day trips (TH(S)=92.9) and only slightly less, 91.8%, for overnight trips
(TH(O)=91.8). In urban areas, the percentage of households reporting overnight trips (89.9%)
was larger than the percentage reporting same-day trips (85.7%), but the reverse was true for
rural areas, where same-day trips were reported by a larger number of households (as many
as 96%) than overnight trips (92.6%). Both overnight and same-day trips were reported by a
larger proportion of rural households than urban households. Compared with the figures of
percentages of households reporting trips, the estimates of percentages of persons making
trips (Statement 3.18) are lower, but not as low as they would have been if, in most
households, only one or two household members went on trips.

3.21.3 The values for TH(S) and TH(O) for both rural and urban sectors as well as for the
entire area of each State is shown in Statement 3.24. The main features are stated below.

 Apart from Assam (81%), Kerala (83%) and Bihar (85%), all major States10 had 90% or
more households reporting at least one overnight trip (TH(O)≥90) during a one-year
period (see column 3 of the statement). There were only 6 States/UTs with TH(O)<80, of
which 4 were North-Eastern States and 2 were UTs.
 All major States had at least 84% households reporting at least one same-day trip in a
one-year period, and except for Maharashtra, Punjab and Bihar, all had TH(S)>90.
 The absolute difference between TH(S) and TH(O) (rural and urban sectors combined)
was less than 5 in all the major States except Assam and Tamil Nadu, where TH(S)
exceeded TH(O) by about 11 and 6 respectively.

Major States are the 17 States of India that had a population of 20 million or more according to the 2001
Census. Together these States accounted for 94.7% of India’s population in 2001.

 The absolute difference between rural and urban percentages of households reporting at
least one overnight trip did not exceed 6 in any major State except West Bengal and
Maharashtra, where the rural-urban difference was 12 and 9 respectively.
 The percentage of rural households reporting at least one same-day trip, which exceeded
the urban percentage at all-India level by 10 (rural TH(S)=96.0, urban TH(S)=85.7), also
exceeded the urban percentage by 23 in Maharashtra, 15-17 in Rajasthan, Andhra
Pradesh and Punjab, and 11-12 in Gujarat and West Bengal.

3.22 Household occupation


3.22.1 Statement 3.25 shows the variation in the all-India rural and urban percentages of
households reporting overnight and same-day trips over nine occupational categories of
households. Except for the fact that overnight trips were reported somewhat more frequently
by households that were “associate professionals” by occupation (in rural areas, 97.4% such
households reported at least one overnight trip in the last one year compared to 92.6% for all
rural households), deviations of more than 3 percentage points from the all-occupations
average were rare, for overnight as well as same-day trips.

3.23 Household social group


3.23.1 Statement 3.26 shows variation over social groups in the all-India rural and urban
percentages of households reporting overnight and same-day trips during a one-year period. It
is seen that the only notable variation is in the TH(S) values for urban India, which are: 90 for
OBC, 85 for SC, 83 for Others, and 77 for ST. In case of overnight trips, too, the highest
figure for urban India is reported by the OBC group, though the variation between groups is
much less. For rural India, in case of both overnight and same-day trips, the percentages for
the different social groups deviate only very slightly from the all-groups average.

3.24 Household type


3.24.1 Statement 3.27 shows variation over household (occupational) types in the all-India
rural and urban percentages of households reporting overnight and same-day trips during a
one-year period. There are no striking variations in the percentages. In case of same-day trips,
the percentages for the four household types in urban India range from 82 for “others” to 89
for the self-employed. For overnight trips, and also for same-day trips in rural India, the
variation among household types is still less pronounced.

3.25 Household religion


3.25.1 Statement 3.28 shows the variation in TH(O) and TH(S) among households of different
religions. The estimates for “Jains”, “others” and “Buddhists” are based on 418,1216 and
1753 sample households respectively at the all-India level. Estimated percentages of
households reporting trips, for all other religions, are above 80. Apart from the fact that only
about 82% of Christian households in rural areas reported overnight trips compared to the all-
religions average of 92.6%, there was little variation worthy of note among these religions.
The percentage for individual religions rarely differed by more than 3 percentage points from
the all-religions average, though divergences were somewhat greater in case of same-day
trips by urban households. In rural areas, the largest two religious groups, Hindus and
Muslims, had higher percentages reporting both overnight and same-day trips than other
religions.

3.26 Household economic level


3.26.1 Statement 3.29 examines whether the all-India percentages of rural and urban
households reporting overnight and same-day trips vary with the MPCE level of the
households. For this purpose rural households are classified into five ranges (quintile classes)
of MPCE so that each range contains one-fifth of the rural population of India. A similar
classification is made of urban households. Some variation over MPCE levels is noticed in
the percentages of urban households reporting same-day trips, with the second quintile (20th

33
NSS Report No. 536: Domestic Tourism in India, 2008-09
 
Chapter Three: Characteristics of Domestic Tourism 

to 40th percentiles) showing a figure of 90.8%, 5 percentage points higher than the all-classes
percentage, and the topmost quintile showing a figure of 81.7%, which is 4 percentage points
lower than the all-classes percentage. Apart from this, however, deviations of even 2
percentage points from the overall percentage are rare.

3.27 Households visited by NRIs11: impact of the NRI visit(s)


3.27.1 Statement 3.30 summarises the responses of households that had been visited by any
NRI during the past one year to the question: What was the impact of the NRI visit (that is,
on tourism activity of the household members)? The majority of households (nearly 60% in
rural areas and 53% in urban) visited by NRI(s) reported “no impact”. One in eight of the
rural households and about one in six of the urban households reported, however, that the
visit had resulted in their making at least one trip themselves. 11% of the rural households
and 13% of the urban households were willing but unable to make a trip due to other
constraints.

Expenditure on Trips
4.0.1 This chapter deals with expenditure incurred in connection with overnight and same-day
trips. As explained in Chapter Two, all expenditure incurred by the surveyed households on or in
connection with a trip made by any of their members, or members of other households, was
recorded as expenditure on the trip provided it was not incurred for productive purposes. Estimates
were generated for average expenditure per trip and per overnight visitor-trip by sector and
State/UT of the reporting households, as well as separately for each leading purpose; only all-India
estimates for a one-year period days are discussed here. The break-up of overnight and same-day
trip expenditure over broad expenditure heads is also examined. For overnight trips, it is further
investigated how the expenditure pattern varies with the leading purpose of a trip.

4.1 Expenditure per overnight trip and leading purpose


4.1.1 At all-India level, the average expenditure per overnight trip was estimated1 as Rs.821 for
the rural population and Rs.1636 (very nearly double) for the urban population (Statement 4.1).2

4.1.2 It may be recalled (Chapter Three, Section 3.3) that there was a preponderance of social
purposes among the factors giving rise to domestic tourism activity in the country with the leading
purpose of 75% of overnight trips for the rural sector and 71% for the urban being reported as
social. Next came religious trips and pilgrimages, with a share of 9% for the rural and over 12%
for the urban sector. The share of medical and health was small in the urban sector (3.5%)
compared to the rural (7%). In the urban sector, holidaying, leisure and recreation commanded a
share of 5% and business of over 3%. No other purpose had a share of 3% or more in either sector.

4.1.3 Statement 4.1 shows that for both the rural and the urban population, trips with social
leading purpose had a considerably lower-than-average expenditure per trip – 43% lower than the
overall (all-purposes) average for the rural population and 40% lower for the urban. Average
expenditure on such trips was only Rs.466 for the rural sector and Rs.989 for the urban sector and
was the lowest among all the purposes used for classification of trips by leading purpose. One may
recall, in this connection, that the major place of stay of the visitor in 85% of visitor-trips for the
rural population and 80% for the urban was with friends and relatives (Chapter Three, Section
3.18) – this suggests that visitors stayed with friends and relatives in the overwhelming majority of
social visits and helps to understand how expenditure on such visits remained low.

                                                            
1
Relative Standard Error(RSE) of the average expenditure per overnight trip was 4.15 for rural India and 8.58 for
urban India. The state-wise RSEs are presented in Statement 4.6 at the end of this Chapter.
2
For same-day trips, data on expenditure was not collected separately trip-wise, hence the expenditure per trip could
not be separated by leading purpose or any other trip characteristic.

Ref: Table 56 in Appendix A

4.1.4 On the other hand, trips for health and medical purposes were the most expensive in both
rural and urban sectors – expenditure on such trips being, on the average, more than four times as
high as the all-purpose average for both rural and urban populations. The urban population’s trips
for holidaying, leisure and recreation were on the average more than three times as expensive, and
its business trips twice as expensive, as the overall average.

4.1.5 In both sectors, religious trips were only slightly more expensive than average, about 21%
more for the rural sector and 17% more for the urban.

4.2 Expenditure per overnight visitor-trip and leading purpose

Ref: Table 56 in Appendix A

4.2.1 Statement 4.2 gives average trip expenditure per overnight visitor, separately for trips with
different leading purposes. The estimates of expenditure per visitor-trip are smaller than the
estimates of per-trip expenditure – the expenditure on a trip, in general, gets spread over more than
one participant. The estimates, in fact, differ from the corresponding estimates in Statement 4.1 by
factors equal to the average number of visitors per trip, for each purpose and each sector. At all-
India level, the average expenditure per overnight visitor-trip was estimated as Rs.369 for the rural
population and Rs.715 for the urban population.

36
NSS Report No. 536: Domestic Tourism in India, 2008-09
 
Chapter Four: Expenditure on Trips
 

4.2.2 Had trips with different leading purposes had the same average number of visitors per trip,
the estimates in Statement 4.2 would, for each sector, be exactly proportional to those in Statement
4.1. But average number of persons per trip varies with leading purpose: a business trip is likely to
have fewer participants than a trip whose leading purpose is holidaying (Chapter Three, Statement
3.11). This explains why average expenditure per visitor-trip, for trips with leading purpose
“business”, was only 21-23% lower than average expenditure per trip, while for trips with leading
purpose “holidaying, leisure and recreation”, expenditure per visitor was less than half of average
expenditure per trip – the expenditure was shared by a larger number of visitors.

4.2.3 Expenditure on social trips was low compared to the overall average in terms of expenditure
per visitor-trip, just as it was low in terms of expenditure per trip. It was, in fact, on the average
45% lower than the overall average for the rural sector and 42% lower for the urban sector.
Finally, urban average expenditure per visitor-trip for religious trips (Rs.699) was substantially
lower than expenditure per trip (Rs.1919), indicating a large number of visitors per trip (see
Statement 3.11 for the exact average of trip size). Thus, for religious trips in urban sector,
expenditure per visitor-trip became lower than the overall average, whereas expenditure per
religious trip was, as seen in paragraph 4.1.5, 17% higher than the overall average.

Ref: Table 56 in Appendix A

4.3.1 Statement 4.3 gives the break-up of estimated expenditure on overnight trips by leading
purpose of trip, separately for the rural and urban populations. It was seen above (paragraph 4.1.3)
that among trips with different leading purposes, expenditure per overnight trip, for both rural and
urban travellers, was the lowest for social (leading purpose) trips. As such, the share of social trips
was, in both sectors, only 42-43% (Statement 4.3), even though such trips accounted for 75% of
all overnight trips for the rural population and 71% for the urban.

4.3.2 Trips with health and medical purposes, which were seen earlier (paragraph 4.1.4) to be on
the average four times as expensive as the all-trips average, are seen to account for 30% of all
expenditure on overnight trips for the rural population and 15% for the urban. It may be recalled
(see Chapter Three, Statement 3.5) that such trips accounted for 7.3% of the rural population’s
overnight trips and 3.5% of those of the urban population.

37
NSS Report No. 536: Domestic Tourism in India, 2008-09
 
Chapter Four: Expenditure on Trips
 

4.3.3 Religious and pilgrimage trips, which accounted for about 9% of all overnight trips of the
rural population and about 12% in case of the urban population (Chapter Three, Statement 3.5),
had a share of about 11% in overnight trip expenditure for the rural sector and about 14% for the
urban sector.

4.4 Break-up of trip expenditure by broad expenditure head


4.4.1 Package component of trips: Trip expenditure in general has several components present in
varying combinations: transport, food, accommodation, shopping, sight-seeing, etc. As is the
practice in tourism activity, some of these components become commercially available in the form
of a package.3 Visitors who avail themselves of such packages, for a whole trip or for part of it,
cannot report the exact break-up of their total trip expenditure over the heads transport, food,
accommodation, etc., but only the total expenditure incurred on the package component and the
break-up of the remainder (non-package component). This imposes a constraint on the generation
of estimates of the break-up of trip expenditure by its components.

4.4.2 Statement 4.4 gives the percentage break-up of overnight and same-day trip expenditure by
five broad heads – (1) accommodation, (2) food and drink, (3) transport, (4) shopping and (5)
recreation, religious, cultural, sporting and health-related activities – and a residual category.
(See also Fig. 4.1.) Apart from these, expenditure incurred as a package – the “package”
component mentioned above – was made a separate category for the purpose of deriving the
percentage break-up. For overnight trips, the share of the package component was 7% for the
urban sector and about 1.5% for the rural sector. For same-day trips it was 0.9% for the urban
sector and less than 0.2% for the rural sector.

                                                            
3
A trip with a package component need, not, however, be a package trip (Chapter Three, Section 3.6). A package trip
is one in which a package is availed of for the major part of the trip. (See also Chapter Two, paragraph 2.6.5.6.1.)

Chapter Four: Expenditure on Trips
 

4.5 Leading purpose and trip expenditure pattern for overnight trips
4.5.1 One may reasonably surmise that overnight trips with different leading purposes will not
exhibit a uniform pattern of expenditure. To examine this possibility, the break-up of total
expenditure has been shown separately in Statement 4.5 (R&U) for trips with different leading
purposes, for both the rural and the urban sector.

4.5.2 Rural: For social trips – the most common variety – shopping expenditure formed 51% of
total expenditure. It is notable that the share of shopping for social trips was higher than average;
for trips of all other purposes except business and, of course, shopping trips (trips with leading
purpose shopping), the share of shopping was lower than, or close to, the all-purposes average of
30%. The share of accommodation in expenditure on social trips was only 0.38% whereas for all
other purposes (except shopping and health and medical purpose trips), it was 5% or more. The
share of food and drink in social trips was also low (8%) compared to trips with other purposes
except for health and medical purpose. The share of transport, however, was 27%, noticeably
higher than the all-purposes average, which was 20%.

4.5.3 For religious and pilgrimage trips, the category transport commanded the largest share of
expenditure (34%). Shopping took up 22% of expenditure and food and drink, about 17%. For
health and medical purpose trips, expenditure on recreation, religious, cultural, sporting and
health-related activities accounted for more than three-quarters of total expenditure, and the shares
of the other categories are correspondingly low.

4.5.4 Although food and drink had an overall share of only 9%, and a share of 8% for social
trips, its share in expenditure on trips made for business, holidaying and religious purposes was
around 15-17% in each case.

4.5.5 Urban: In many respects the variation in expenditure pattern with leading purpose was, for
the urban population, similar to that for the rural. In urban India, the package component of
expenditure, however, was nearly 39% in trips for holidaying, leisure and recreation (compared to
15% in rural India), and also 5% in trips for religious and pilgrimage purposes.
4.5.6 It has been noted above (paragraph 4.4.2) that transport expenses formed the largest
component of expenditure in urban India (33%) but only 20% in rural India. For social trips, and
also for religious and pilgrimage purpose trips, transport took up 43-44% of total expenditure and
was the largest component. For religious trips, the share of food and drink was 16% and that of
shopping was 15%. For business trips, shopping expenditure was the largest component (40%).

4.5.7 The share of accommodation was, as in rural India, noticeably low for social trips (1.2%)
but was 10-14% in business trips, trips for religious and pilgrimage, and trips for holidaying,
leisure, etc. (For the last-named kind of trip, the share of accommodation was likely to be
appreciably larger with part of the actual expenses on it getting subsumed in the package
