INDUSTRY OVERVIEW
Background
Tourism is driven by the natural urge of every human being for new
experiences, and the desire to be both educated and entertained. The motivations
for tourism also include religious and business interests; the spread of education
has fostered a desire to know more about different parts of the globe. The basic
human thirst for new experience and knowledge has become stronger, as
communication barriers are getting overcome by technological advances.
Expenditure on tourism induces a chain of transactions requiring supply of
goods and services from the related sectors. The consumption demand,
emanating from tourist expenditure also induces more employment and
generates a multiplier effect on the economy.

Tourism in India is broadly classified by its regions - North, East, West


and South Indian tourism. Each part of India offers identifiable differences from
the rest of the nation. The creation of niche tourism products like medical
tourism, wellness tourism, religious circuits, adventure tourism, cruise tourism,
and caravan tourism has served to widen the net of this sector. Inbound tourism
is booming and the country is going all out to lure more travelers from around
the world. Contrary to perceptions across the world that tourism in India is still
confined to traditions, the country is opening up with trendy tour packages and
affordable air travel deals to woo inbound visitors from every segment.
GOVERNMENT POLICY
Government Initiatives
Government of India, the government has allowed 100 per cent foreign
investment under the automatic route in the Hotel and Tourism related industry.
The terms hotel includes restaurants, beach resorts and other tourism complexes
providing accommodation and /or catering and food facilities to tourists. The
term tourism related industry includes:
Travel agencies, tour operating agencies and tourist transport
operating agencies.
Units providing facilities for cultural, adventure and wildlife
experience to tourists
Surface, air and water transport facilities for tourists
Convention/seminar units and organizations
As a facilitative measure to make Tourism sector in India more attractive
the following initiatives are taken by Government:

The Government has launched a Scheme of Visa on Arrival (VoA) from


January 2010 for citizens of five countries, viz. Finland, Japan,
Luxembourg, New Zealand and Singapore, visiting India for tourism
purposes. The Government has now extended this Scheme for the
citizens of six more countries, namely Cambodia, Indonesia, Vietnam,
Philippines, Laos and Myanmar from January 2011. During the period
January-June 2011, a cumulative figure of 5774 VoAs were issued, with a

total of 865 & 770 VoAs issued in the months of May & June
respectively.
The Ministry of Tourism has launched a scheme for development of
nationally and internationally important destinations and circuits through
Mega Projects. As on 4.2.2011, 38 mega projects have been identified,
out of which 26 projects have already been sanctioned.
To overcome the bottlenecks of multiple inter state road transport
barriers, Ministry of Tourism has been advocating implementation of
seamless travel for commercial tourist vehicles. This would facilitate
smooth movement of tourist traffic and avoid delays and inconvenience
to tourists.

PROCEDURE TO START A TOURISM INDUSTRY


1.Understand the travel industry. First you need to familiarize yourself with
different aspects of travel industry. Get as much information as possible about
air travel, rail travel, cruises, hotels and vacation destinations. Also learn about
what type of travel packages are popular amongst customers and so on.
2.Analyze your requirements. Decide about whether travel franchise is what
you actually want. A travel franchise business has many benefits but always
remember that you will have to split your profits with the franchisor.
3.Get a Franchise license. Obtain travel franchise business licenses and
permits of a reputed travel company. Sign the franchise agreement after proper
analysis. Check out all the points mentioned in the agreement and in case of any
doubt doesnt hesitate to ask the franchisor about it.
4.Look for a suitable location. Analyze the location requirements provided by
the franchisor and start looking for a location as per those requirements. You
will need a good location to where clients can come and meet with you. You
office must have ample space to house your computers and other essential
equipments.

5.Hire employees. Like all business ventures, for a travel franchising business
you will need to hire an accountant to draw up a business plan if you need a
loan to get your business started. An accountant will help you to manage your
finances in a smooth way
6.Have Marketing strategies: In a franchise travel business, the franchisor will
definitely carry out the major advertising and marketing work. But you need to
do some marketing within your territory to make people aware of your newly
established business.
7.Find Proper payment methods: As in a travel business your customers will
need to make payments through cash, cheques or credit cards you need to make
the required arrangements. Open a business banking account and a checking
account and credit card that can be used to pay all business related expenses.
8.Follow guidelines. Always follow the footsteps of the franchisor and try to
work towards achieving your goals. Handle customers efficiently and give
importance to the USP of the company.

PUBLIC RELATIONS IN INDIA OVERVIEW


18

Needless to say, the Indian media microcosm is fairly large. There are
approximately over 70,000 publications in this country of various shapes and
sizes reflecting ideological hues of all kinds. Over the past few years, the media
in India has increasingly taken it upon itself to closely monitor every move of
the government, politicians and just anyone in public office. As the watchdog of
the public, the media has carried out several sting operations to expose
corruption and television channels hold intensive debates everyday on topics of
national interest.
Of the more than 70,000 newspapers printed in India, around 90% are published
in Hindi and other vernacular languages. There are over 825 private satellite TV
channels permitted by the Information and Broadcasting Ministry, out of which
approximately 20% are pay channels. The demand for regional print media is
growing at a faster pace than that of English language print media. In the
electronic media, the highly fragmented viewership has led to an increasing
preference for niche channels
Digital India
In the recent past India, has seen a surge in the digital media scene with more
and more media houses depending on social media for news. Here are some
statistics:
74% of marketers believe Facebook is important for their lead generation
strategy
40% of marketers use Google+, 70% desire to learn more and 67% plan to
increase Google+ activities
42% update their profile information regularly on LinkedIn
Every second 8000 users like some or other photo on Instagram
80% of total Pinterests pins are re-pins
4.2 billion people use mobile devices to access social media sites
Social media generate almost double the marketing leads of trade show,
telemarketing, daily mail, or PPC
More than 23% of marketers are investing in blogging and social media

19

Politicians, local governments, bureaucrats and government agencies as much


as corporates are extremely sensitive to what is written in the media. Even a
small negative write-up in a fairly innocuous publication can create public
mayhem. This has happened many times in the past and is likely to happen
many times over. The lesson, if any, is to respect all the publications, big or
small.
The obverse has been a sense of power without responsibility and
accountability. Most publications, including respected ones, really have few
qualms about running a libellous story. Cases on defamation are fairly unheard
of since they take a lot of time and a lot of money. Consequently, the only
influence that one can have on the media is not the threat of law or legal action
but the relationships that are brought to bear on the media.
The Value Of Relationships
The fact that most Indian correspondents try to act responsibly has kept the
media within the bounds of sanity. However, the important point to remember is
that it is very very important to make friends with the media in India. By doing
so, they will not necessarily believe all that you say but they certainly will try
and ensure that they preserve their equation with you by checking back. Further,
with many competitors inclined to inspire stories, they are less than likely to file
a story against you if it endangers a relationship. However, if the story does
prove to be true, they are unlikely to spare you the publicity.
The media, therefore, expects you to be compliant with the requirements of their
deadlines, their stories, and their need for information. Indeed, most are
convinced that it is a matter of right and not a matter of choice for companies to
share or not to share facts and figures.

Digital Media
Apart from the print correspondents, the digital media is much of a on-the-runmedia. Even when it does show up, they want a smart sound bite, a quick
learning of the subject and a good recap of what was said at the press
conference in 45 seconds.
An associated tribe are the photographers who are constantly at great pains to
get that original photograph. A press conference, sadly, has little such
opportunity and, in cities like Delhi and Mumbai, where press meets happen by
the dozens, photographers do require some indulgence to get that interesting
shot or profile.
20

That apart, we have set of specialized feature writers in each publication. They
do in-depth stories starting from scratch. Usually, they either do their homework
or do across-industry stories comparing various companies and their products.
TOURISM AND MARKETING MIX

The marketing mix is a business tool used in marketing and by marketing


professionals. The marketing mix is often crucial when determining a product or
brands offering and is often synonymous with the four Ps: price, product,
promotion and place. In service marketing like tourism, however, the four
Ps have been expanded to the seven Ps to address the different nature of
services. The additional three Ps in tourism are people, process and physical
evidence.
By taking a fresh look at these various aspects of your company you will be
sure that all of your work supports your main goal selling your services to
your customer. It will also help you answer more fundamental questions such
as; who are your customers?, how do you reach your customers? and what
are the needs of your customers?, to name a few.

Product
21

The product is the collection of services that have features and benefits.
Standard features and benefits include the normal amenities of a hotel room, for
example. Good marketing adds special features, such as free breakfasts or free
Internet.
Price
The price has to match the product, but good marketing makes the price seem
more attractive. The operator can either add features to the product and keep the
price the same or give a discount for the same features.
Promotion
The promotion gives details of the product and the price. The key characteristics
of the promotion are the method of communicating the information, the content
of the promotion and the cost to the operator. The promotion has a target
market, and the method and content of the promotion has to appeal to the people
who it reaches. The price the members of the target market are willing to pay
has to cover the cost of the promotion.
Place
Place refers to the location where the customer buys the collection of services.
Ideally, the operator who sends out the promotion uses it to encourage the
potential customer to visit the operator's location and complete the purchase.
With the convenience of online payments, the operator may find that the best
strategy is to direct potential customers to an attractive website where they can
complete the purchase.
People
Since the product is a collection of services, the people who provide the services
are a key to the success of the transaction. Operators must have top-level service
to initially complete the sale and to encourage repeat customers.
Planning
The key service component of the tourism experience is planning. The customer
expects that the experience will correspond closely to what he purchased. The
only way to ensure that kind of correspondence is to execute according to
detailed plans, and have contingency planning in place for problems.
Programming

22

One way to add value to the standard product and to distinguish a particular
offering from competitors is to offer exclusive programming. Customers will
purchase a product that caters to their particular interests. Special programming
can address such preferences and draw in additional customers.
Physical Evidence
If possible, the provision of physical evidence that the customer experienced the
particular tourism product can help sales. Providing professional photographs of
the customers at key events or the supply of branded products are effective
strategies for promoting particular tourism products.

23
