Development of Tourism and Tourist Destination in India and the Role Played By Government Introduction: 

Tourism is being buildup by the Indian government as a tool for social stability, alleviation and sustainable development. In fact, the socio-economic injustices and inequalities will be improved rarely by the tourism. While repealing, diluting, and changing regulations and policies initially in relation with the protection of basic human rights, environmental protection, and democratic as well as social goals, several governments have placed the requirements of investor because tourism turns out to be developed worldwide. This initially takes place as tourism has been enlarged in the structure of a ‘free market’ economic environment with least rule. Private profit has been placed by this above additional competing objectives such as economic and social justice. Towards tourism, the differences that appear might not be attributed directly; however in general they are underlying or simmering tensions and conflicts that the tourism provides to get to the front.        

Whenever the government does not succeed in regulating the tourism properly, military might be utilized to restrain community opposition and to secure the developments of tourism.  

InIndia, the two important environmental regulations that have been weakened by the improvements are EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) and CRZ (Coastal Regulation Zone). However in several parts ofIndia, the community’s struggles and campaigns affected by means of tourism has required industry as well as policymakers to accept the impacts of irresponsible and uncontrolled development of tourism. 

On the other hand, this law has been ignored largely by several governments and its significant provisions have been failed to be implemented. As a substitute, they vested interest form tourism, and also from other divisions such as refineries, mining, and ports. Several other organizations have sought and succeeded hugely in getting rid of Notification of CRZ. Between the years 1994-2005, the notification of CRZ was amended about 21 times, and all the revisions damaged the provisions of law. It has been claimed by the industry of tourism that it was weakened in competing with other country’s beach hotels where there exists no such limitations. Even though these amendments were prepared in the mind about tourism industry interests, these were cancelled by the Indian Supreme Court in the year 1996. In coastal areas several communities, especially those based on the coastal ecology’s protection for their lives have been at front position in the fight against the CRZ’s violations by the industry of tourism.
