TOURISM IN INDIA

India is the land of innumerable Gods and Goddesses, languages, religions and traditions but still in this diversity one can find a unity. India is a country with a diverse topography-from the great Himalayan mountains in the north, the Thar desert in the west, the rain-fed Delta (the Sunder bans) in east and the coastal areas in the south. India has a panorama of scenes, which reflects the spectrum of Indian colours.

According to Ministry of Tourism, the first ten months (January-October) of the calendar year 2006 witnessed a total tourist inflow of 34,102,72 as against 30,153,62 in the same period of the last year. The total foreign exchange earnings earned in the first ten months (January-October) of the calendar year 2006 stood at US$ 5035.25 million against US$ 4466.03 million for the same period in 2005. Further, according to the World Travel and Tourism Council, India's travel and tourism (T&T) industry is expected to contribute 2.1 percent to Gross Domestic Product in 2006(INR 713.8 billion or US$ 16.3 billion)
