Existing tourist places are over crowded, putting strain on ecosystem. These were mainly developed during British Era. Each site has a maximum carrying capacity that should be respected. Other beautiful locations in vicinity of these places be developed as tourist hubs. There is huge scope for exploiting tourism opportunities in J&k and North Eastern States. Sound infrastructure, law and order, cleanliness, removal of beggars, petty thieves and unorganized vendors should be ensured by the Govts.

mal-practices or anything to the government portal that will be updated on the website portal....

MyGov task to prepare a policy doc. to promote tourism along with effect of tourism dev. on eco. balance has been done thro' a PPT presentation.
In nutshell, India needs area specific tourism dev. plans, & while doing so, it sd ensure that, ecology of d area remains relatively unharmed, but at d same time, job opportunities and economic uplifting of the local populace remains unaffected too! ABOVE ALL, I ALSO SUGGEST THE GOVT. TO START A 'TTV- TOURISM TV' CHANNEL IN THE LINES OF NAT.GEO.!
