Speaking at a panel discussion dedicated to ‘Tourism: Safety and Security’ organised by the Indian Merchants Chamber, Subodh Jaiswal, Police Commissioner, Mumbai, urged tourism stakeholders in India to overcome the “chalta hai attitude” on matters of safety and security of tourists in India. Tourism in India has shown phenomenal growth in the past years and is considered to be the biggest driver to the nation’s economic growth. Along with the huge growth, security and safety of tourists has become a complex and vulnerable issue. Lack of safety and security, and incidences of crime represent a more serious threat to travel and tourism, than any other factor. “There is a need to invest in the training and development of stakeholders to make them realise that the ‘chalta hai attitude’ has to go for our own betterment. One single incident created by any of the stakeholders can cause heavy damage for the tourism industry”, said Jaiswal.
