launch A book on the travel business has something for all stakeholders

“Tourism in India — An Economic Activity” by Anil K. Bhandari, chairman of AB Smart Concepts, a consulting company for hotels, has been published by Har Anand.

“I wrote the book to share the knowledge and experience I have gained in 47 years of working in the tourism and hotel industry,” says Anil. The book attempts to provide details about all aspects of tourism in a manner that can help students, planners, research scholars, stakeholders and, most importantly, tourists.

The book shares details about tourism planning, infrastructure and financial allocations from the Planning Commission. It also shows how these funds are utilised. There are also insights into state tourism development corporations, the most-visited States, guidelines for tourists, tourism education institutes in India and details of tourism service providers.
