Policies Regarding Sustainable Tourism

Ministry of Tourism has finalized the Sustainable Tourism Criteria for India (STCI) in February 2012. This criterion includes Principles and Indicators for Sustainable Tourism practices for the tour operators and hotel sector, the two most important segments of tourism industry.

The ‘Guidelines for Tourism in and around Tigers Reserves’ has been notified by the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), Ministry of Environment & Forests. As per these guidelines, all the States have been asked to notify the State-level ecotourism strategy within a year from the date of notification of the guidelines. The guideline has also recommended the identification and monitoring of ecologically sensitive areas surrounding the tiger reserves to ensure the ecological integrity or corridor/buffer areas which will prevent encroachment. The Ministry of Tourism has guidelines for Approval of Hotel Projects at the implementation stage and also guidelines for Classification of operational hotels under various categories including such hotels being constructed around eco sensitive and protected areas. As per these guidelines, hotels at the project stage itself are required to incorporate various eco-friendly measures like sewage treatment plant (STP), rain water harvesting system, waste management system, pollution control, introduction of non-Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) equipment for refrigeration and air conditioning, measures for energy and water conservation etc.

The Ministry of Tourism has not commissioned any study regarding the impact of tourism in the protected areas and hence no reports are available.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Tourism (IC) Dr. K. Chiranjeevi in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today.
