Shocked! but yes it’s true, due to coronavirus pandemic and it’s going worst every day but at the end of the day and we have to live with it. Today in India we have crossed more than 4.6 million cases and GDP has gone down to negative, the whole Tourism Industry is crashed and there are other problems going with the neighbour countries.
Tourism plays a crucial role in Himalayan states like Uttarakhand as most of the revenue comes from tourism Industry and most of the residence of the state have earning connected to tourism. Due to the Corona Virus Pandemic, the economy has to suffer and the locals are in a difficult situation as most of them are connected with the tourism industry.
So, the govt. of Uttarakhand come up with the new innovative ideas that can help the growth of the economy and the people of the state.
What is Tourist Incentive Coupon?
In order to boost tourism, the Uttarakhand govt. has come up with a new scheme for tourist called Tourist Incentive Coupon.
Tourist who is coming to Uttarakhand will get ₹1000 for their accommodation under this project, as said by the Uttarakhand Tourism Minister Satpal Maharaj.
This offer will come into existence in some days and will be applicable only to those who do a three-day online booking at any hotel or homestay in Uttarakhand.
The government states, they are projecting that by this offer there will be an inflow of tourist in the state and will help to stand the tourism industry again.
This is the best opportunity for tourist and travellers who wants to explore the most famous hill like Mussoorie, Auli, Nainital, Rudraprayag etc in Uttarakhand
How to Avail the Offer?
As per government statement, the tourist can avail by some very easy:
1. The tourist has to register on the government portal under tourist category before coming to the state.
2. After that, you will be provided discount coupon which you can avail during your stay in hotels or homestay in the tourist spot of the state.
3. As I have earlier also, You must have at least 3 days online booking at hotel or homestay to avail this offer.
For now, the project is yet to be finalized at the cabinet meeting. Moreover, the government is also discussing the refund to tourist who has made the booking in advance at Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve as this place is still closed for outsiders or tourist due to Corona Virus pandemic.
So, this will be a great initiative from the government of Uttarakhand which can help to improve the economy and regulate earnings of local who are connected with tourism.
