In March, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath lay the foundation for tourist initiatives totaling more than Rs 180 crore in 373 Uttar Pradesh Assembly constituencies. He stated that his government has made policies to promote and develop pilgrim sites, which not only improve tourism but also provide job opportunities for many people. Heritage and rural areas will be built in every seat under the “Chief Minister Tourism Promotion Scheme.”
With Ayodhya the construction of a temple in Ayodhya continues, the UP government is working on strategies to encourage tourists to appreciate the state’s spiritual and natural environment.
Since 1980, September 27 has been recognised as World Tourism Day to highlight the importance of tourism in influencing the social, cultural, political, and economic values of the worldwide community.
Because of COVID lockdowns in 2020, over 90% of world heritage sites remained closed and many lost jobs. Almost 32 million people have been forced into poverty as a result of the tourism ban, with women bearing the brunt of the burden.
