Fewer Foreign Tourists Visiting Taj Mahal Due to Rising Crimes 

The number of foreign tourists who had visited Taj Mahal during 2012 to 2014 is as below:


2012
:
7,43,256
2013
:
6,95,702
2014

No market study has been done to pinpoint the reasons for fall in footfalls of foreign tourists to Taj Mahal.  However, some of the factors determining international tourist arrivals in any tourist destination including Taj Mahal (Agra) are: the prevailing travel trends,  economies of the tourism source markets, connectivity, availability of reasonably priced hotel accommodation, good tourism infrastructure etc.

            The remedial measures taken by Ministry of Tourism to ensure the safety and security of tourists including foreign tourists are as below:

i)       The Ministry of Tourism has launched the 24X7 Toll Free Multi-Lingual Tourist Helpline in 12 International Languages including Hindi & English on 8.2.2016. This service is available on the   toll free number 1800111363 or on a short code 1363 and operational 24X 7 (all days) in a year offering a “multi-lingual helpdesk” in the designated languages to provide support service in terms of providing information relating to Travel & Tourism in India to the domestic and International tourists and to assist the callers with advice on action to be taken during times of distress while travelling in India and if need be alert the concerned authorities.  The calls made by tourists (both international and domestic) while in India will be free of charge.   
ii)      Adoption of code of conduct for Safe and Hon’ble Tourism, which contains a set of guidelines to encourage tourism activities to be undertaken with respect to basic rights like dignity, safety and freedom from exploitation of both tourists and local residents, in particular women and children.
iii)     All the Chief Ministers of the State Governments and Administrators of Union Territory Administrations have been asked to take immediate effective steps for ensuring a conducive and friendly environment for all tourists and also request them to publicize the steps being taken/proposed to be taken to increase the sense of security amongst the present/prospective visitors and also to counter the negative publicity, if any.
iv)     The National Tourism Ministers’ Conference was convened on 18th July, 2013 and 21st August 2014 in New Delhi which resolved that the Departments of Tourism of all States and UTs will work for ensuring the safety and security of tourists, especially women. The State Governments/UT Administrations of Andhra Pradesh, Goa, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Jammu & Kashmir, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh and Odisha have deployed Tourist Police, in one form or the other.
v)      Grant of Central Financial Assistance to the State Governments of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh for setting up of Tourist Facilitation and Security Organization (TFSO) on a pilot basis.
 vi)    In the wake of some unfortunate incidents happening involving foreign tourists, Ministry of Tourism posts an advisory on its website www.incredibleindia.org.
vii)    The Ministry of Tourism has issued the Guidelines on Safety and Security of Tourists for State Governments/Union Territories and Tips for Travellers in September 2014.  These guidelines were sent to the State Governments/Union Territories and other relevant authorities to stress the importance of safety and risk management, assist in identifying best practices and encourage closer cooperation for ensuring a pleasant experience to the tourists.  The Guidelines are indicative references that may be useful to the States in sharing or adopting the best practices and design their domestic measures to better protect tourists.  In addition to these guidelines “Tips to Travellers” are also offered to make the visit of tourists to Incredible India, a memorable experience.

Foreign Tourist Inflow Into the Country 

The number of Foreign Tourist Arrivals in India during 2013, 2014 and 2015 were 6.97 million, 7.68 million and 8.03 million, respectively. Ministry of Tourism has not fixed any year-wise target.

            The Government of India has undertaken following measures to make India a low cost destination with modern infrastructure and other basic amenities in tourism sector:

i)       Stimulus to approve low cost accommodation like Bed & Breakfast units and guest houses.
ii)      Revision of the e-Tourist Visa (e-TV) fee in four slabs of 0, US $25, US $ 48, and US $60 from November 3, 2015. Earlier, e-TV application fee was US $ 60 and bank charge was US $ 2 which was uniform for all the countries. Bank charges have also been reduced from US $ 2 to 2.5 % of the e-TV fee.
iii)     With the objective to reduce the marketing cost of Foreign Tour Operators in developing and selling   tour packages to India, the Ministry of Tourism through its India Tourism Offices overseas provides financial support in form of ‘Brochure Support’ for producing exclusive India tour package  brochures.   The India Tourism Offices overseas also undertake Joint Promotions and Joint Advertising with Foreign Tour Operators/travel agents/wholesalers, and Airlines, etc. 
iv)     Extending rewards under Service Exports from India Scheme (SEIS). The SEIS provides for rewards to all Service providers of notified services, who are providing services from India, regardless of the constitution or profile of the service provider. The rewards provided to Tourism and Travel related services under SEIS are as follows:
