Tourism Ministry has aimed at 12 per cent growth rate of foreign and domestic tourist visits during the 12th Five-Year Plan period. It is believed that tourism industry is becoming an important factor in economic development and employment generation.
"The success of the Clean India campaign is crucial to achieve the targeted growth in tourists arrivals during the 12th Plan," said Tourism Minister Subodhkant Sahai at the Clean India workshop recently.
The campaign was launched in December last year in order to provide a hygienic environment in and around tourist destinations across the country to attract more visitors.
