Travel Tourism, Hospitality and Aviation Industry in India

Travel Tourism, Hospitality and Aviation Industry as a subject is new. These three are fast emerging subjects and a promising Service Industry.

However, the fulfilment of the goal of the subject remained far behind due to shortages of required human resources. Several Vocational Institutions are backbone in contributing to fill up the gap of the‘Urgent Industry Needs and Snail Pace Supplies of Qualified Human Resources’. On the other hand, in country like India, the unemployment rate and development disparity is increasing due to insufficient and incompetent government policy which gives thrust to mushrooming growth of private players in grooming human resources as per the Industry’s needs.

As per the reports, in 2015 the travel and tourism sector contributed Rs8.22 trillion or 7% of India’s gross domestic product (GDP) and 37.4 million jobs—almost 9% of total employment which is awesomely becoming a giant employment provider in developing country like India.

It is predicted to rise by 6.5 % P.A. for at-least decade upto Rs.4337.8 Billion in 2025 (6.9% growth). The reports also claimed that this sector has the potential to provide 46 Million employments to India’s economy. The government policy will also play an important role to fulfil this prediction. Yes, India has the resources and the potential to create services and employment in this sector. Several potential tourist destinations remain untouched and unknown to potential tourist because of the lack of support and policies from government. But, the concern is whether the ruling government and locals extends their helping hands through proper policies and goals to achieve as expected and consciously look into in implementation of the same. The judicious exploitation of the natural gifts of the nation needs a conscious and sincere efforts.

Therefore, at this juncture, where unemployment leads to strife and disturbs peaceful co-existence of nation,Travel Tourism, Hospitality and Aviationas anemployment driven subject, along with Vocational Institution plays a pivotal role in transforming unskilled labor to SKILLED human resource, providing services to customers and employing the mass.

Tourism Growth and Sustainable Environment

Tourism is the fastest growing industry in the world as well as the one of the world’s most competitive one. India’s travel and tourism economy is poised to grow 7.5% in 2015 over last year, exceeding the 6.9% growth that the global forum has predicted for the South Asian region.

The third-largest sub- segment of the services sector comprising trade, repair services, hotels and restaurants contributed nearly US$ 187.9 billion or 12.5 per cent to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2014-15, while growing the fastest at 11.7 per cent Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) over the period 2011-12 to 2014-15.

Tourism in India has significant potential considering the rich cultural and historical heritage, variety in ecology, terrains and places of natural beauty spread across the country. Tourism is also a potentially large employment generator besides being a significant source of foreign exchange for the country. The industry is expected to generate 13.45 million jobs across sub-segments such as Restaurants (10.49 million jobs), Hotels (2.3 million jobs) and Travel Agents/Tour Operators (0.66 million). India has moved up 13 positions to 52nd rank from 65th in Tourism & Travel competitive index. The sector had the potential to contribute 46 million jobs to the India economy by 2025.

All these figures show the growing market as well as the role being played by tourism in the economies of the nations. India has still more potential to attract foreign tourists as well as encourage domestic tourism.

Sustainability’ is the catchword of the new millennium. As one of Victoria’s larger industries, and a sector heavily reliant on natural assets as its product, tourism not only contributes to the problem, but it could become a major casualty of a failure to address the issues. However, the broader notion of sustainability goes beyond traditional ‘green’ elements. The World Tourism Organisation defines ‘sustainable tourism’ as “tourism which meets the needs of the present tourist and host regions,while protecting and enhancing opportunities for the future”. The broader notion of sustainability not only encompasses the environmental, but also the economic and socio-cultural aspects of the industry.

Consumer trends in travel have been steadily moving away from overcrowded, polluted, and culturally homogenous experiences. The new traveller ethic recognizes the need to protect finite resources and indigenous cultures. Sustainable delivery of services to meet the needs of visitors requires careful consideration of the desires and identity of local communities.

In fact, attractions and facilities that reflect the personality and heritage of an area are much more likely to be accepted by its residents. The ‘greening’ of your business also has marketing benefits, especially in attracting the rapidly growing market of environmentally-conscious visitors.

Tourism can also be a driving force for conservation,enhancement and interpretation of the natural and cultural environment – directly through raising awareness, and through the generation of funds to support projects. Therefore Sustainability should be important to all tourism enterprises, regardless of size or market orientation.

Technology and Innovation in Indian Hotel Industry

Hospitality industry is a customer-driven industry. The hotels need to offer services based on customer feedback.
Entering a sub-continental market the size of India growing at 13% per annum is a tempting prospect for any multinational hotel chain but it poses management challenges too.Therefore, the first challenge is to understand the expectations of consumers and their behavior.With 1.25 billion people united by diversity of languages, religious and social identities, Indian consumers may not appear a homogenous group.
Technology is playing a bigger role in designing a hotel. Earlier an interior decorator would never call an IT guy, but now things are different with technology in the lobby, at the reception, guestroom.

Marketing and brand building strategies for Indian markets will need to be savvy enough to capitalise on the behaviour of these digitally connected consumers. The use of SMS as a transactional instrument or viral marketing is phenomenal in India. Inevitably the hotels attract young and fresh graduates who in turn are well in tune with the modern upwardly mobile middle class business and professional consumers.
Strategic investment in branding, human capital and information systems suited to local needs and aspirations in India is an opportunity enveloped in transparent challenge.
A large number of Indian hospitality customers have an insatiable appetite for bandwidth fed by professional and social needs. They do not, therefore, like hotels without internet access and they hate when wi-fi is charged for!

Economic Benefits of Cinematic Tourism in Punjab

Economic benefits resulting from cinematic tourism can take a number of forms including:

1.Employment

Associated directly, such as tour guide or location manager VIP guest relation executive in hotels etc or in supporting industries like food production or retail suppliers.

  1. Increased spending

Increased spending in the community generated from visitors or tourism businesses,crew team can directly and indirectly promote the viability of local businesses.

  1. Economic diversification

Tourism operators can play a role in highlighting the broad prosperity that tourism can bring to a community and will contribute to a greater understanding and respect for the value of tourism.

Economic diversification is, for many communities, an insurance policy against hard times. By offering an additional means of income, tourism can support a community when a traditional industry is under financial pressure, particularly where that community relies heavily on a single industry.

  1. Infrastructure

Infrastructure including roads, parks, and other public spaces can be developed and improved both for visitors and local residents through increased tourism activity in a region. Tourism tends to encourage the development of multiple-use infrastructure that benefits the host community, including various means of transports, health care facilities, and sports centers, in addition to the hotels and high-end restaurants that cater to foreign visitors. The development of infrastructure has in turn induced the development of other directly productive activities.

Tourism can be a significant or even an essential part of the local economy. Because environment is a basic component of the tourism industry’s assets, tourism revenues are often used to measure the economic value of protected areas. There are other local revenues that are not easily quantified, as not all tourist expenditures are formally registered in the macro-economic statistics. Part of the tourism income comes from informal employment, such as street vendors and informal guides. The positive side of informal or unreported employment is that the money is returned to the local economy and has a great multiplier effect as it is spent over and over again. The World Travel and Tourism Council estimates that tourism generates an indirect contribution equal to 100 % of direct tourism expenditures.

Cinema is often welcome as an economy booster and generator of job markets. Any assessments of the local and national impact of ‘cinematic tourism’ have to be structurally and contextually specific: they have to explore the position commodified cultures occupy in collective imaginations outside their cradle, and the historical and economic relationship of the nation-states that ‘host’ them with the rest of the world.
