Schemes for Promotion of Rural Tourism

 

           

The Ministry of Tourism has sanctioned Rural Tourism projects at 185 sites to various States/Union Territory Administrations upto 31st March 2012. For the year 2012-13, rural tourism projects at 13 sites were identified for development, based on prioritization meetings held by the Ministry of Tourism with State Governments/UT Administrations.

The Ministry of Tourism is implementing the Rural Tourism Scheme with the main objective of showcasing rural life, art, culture and heritage in villages which have core competence in art & craft, handloom, textiles, natural environment etc. Under this scheme, Central Financial Assistance (CFA) upto Rs.50.00 lakh for infrastructure development and upto Rs.20.00 lakh for capacity building is provided to State Governments/Union Territory Administrations for each identified site.

CFA is provided to State Governments/Union Territory (UT) Administrations on the basis of proposals received from them and subject to adherence to scheme guidelines, availability of funds and inter-se priority.  Improvement of roads within the Panchayat limit is one of the components of the Rural Tourism Scheme for which CFA is provided to the State Governments/UT Administrations.

 

The number of rural tourism projects and amount sanctioned to States/UTs under the Rural Tourism Scheme during each of the last three years and the current year, State-wise

and  year-wise are given below:
