“The Travel & Tourism sector represents a vital economic driver. With a 5.8% contribution to India’s GDP (2022) and the government’s target of achieving $1 trillion by 2047, the sector forms a strong force multiplier – across allied sectors, employment generation and foreign exchange receipts. Our expectations from the Union Budget include key pivots to transform India into a destination of choice starting with ‘Infrastructural Focus’. Setting up of new airports via private participation must become a priority along with rapid expansion in rail, road and waterways. Additionally, infrastructure development for high-growth areas like religious circuits and underleveraged hidden gems (Lakshadweep) should be a priority. The Government should also look at reduced Income tax levels to provide increased disposable income in the hands of the people, which will be a boost for travel & tourism spends.”
