Rural Tourism Initiative: More Sites Added

Rural Tourism is an initiative from the Tourism Department to promote tourism in India's hinterland and help travellers experience out-of-the-way destinations. With continued growth of tourism in India, and with more and more domestic and international travellers looking for authentic experience and new places to travel to, rural tourism can help cater to those tourists looking for places off the normal tourist destinations. The initiative also serves to improve local economies from tourist inflow.


The department of tourism had kicked off the initiative last year with places identified all over the country, and had many earlier unknown destinations that are no more than small villages. These places were made ready for tourists with accommodations, and compilation of places to see and experience. The initiative is a part of Incredible India campaign. Rural Tourim Initiative is now given further push by adding 14 more destinations to the existing list.

For more information on the initiative, see Rural Tourism website by Ministry of Tourism.

A majority of tourism destinations are either located or surrounded by rural geographies; hence rural tourism business models like home-stays, farm stays or community- managed guest houses [which use existing infrastructure and leverage the competitive strengths of rural households] offer viable & sustainable options even at low occupancies. Despite high growth potential and quicker pay-backs, rural tourism has not picked up significantly due to issues like information asymmetry, difficult booking and payment processes, non-availability of quality budget accommodations and poor quality services. NE Rural Tourism Private Limited [RTNE] is established with a mission to bridge the supply chain gaps by identifying and investing in financially viable rural tourism business opportunities which positively impact the host communities and provide sustainable solutions to travelers, accommodation providers and travel service providers in technology, marketing and finance. click www.rtne.co.in
