Tourism sector of Jammu & Kashmir - prospectus and challenges
Dr. Mohd. Iqbal Darzi
The tourism sector is playing a tremendous role in the overall development of Jammu & Kashmir State of India. With its backward and forward linkages with other sectors of the economy, like accommodation, transport, telecommunication, handicrafts etc., tourism has the potential to not only be the economy driver, but also become an effective tool for poverty alleviation and ensuring growth with equity. Infrastructure development holds the key to sustained growth in the tourism sector. Therefore, Ministry of Tourism made consistent efforts to develop quality tourist infrastructure at tourist destinations and circuits. The development of any sector in the economy needs more and more investment. Tourism sector is not an exception; it certainly needs continuous and huge investment. Jammu & Kashmir being a developing state with limited infrastructure and lack of accumulated capital seriously requires huge investment in tourist infrastructure. This paper tries to assess the existing situation of tourist infrastructure quality in Jammu & Kashmir.
