India’s tourism is growing in leaps and bounds. While there were no major announcements in the union budget this year, as was expected by many, the business of tourism was majorly hit by the demonetization move last year. An industry still saddled with multiple layers of tax include VAT, service tax, luxury tax etc. and ranges from 20% – 30%, Indian tourism is now gaining momentum, thanks to the inbound tourism growth.
While the inbound tourists prioritized Rajasthan, Taj Mahal and Delhi, we have seen many off beat places gaining popularity recently. Chetan Juneja, senior vice president of Tamarind Global, which organizes inbound tourism in offbeat places of India, while talking to Business Insider rightly observed that Khajuraho is a destination that is gaining good traction from tourists.
