With reference to the tourism industry, while the budget talks about a 20000 crores outlay, it is not clear on its allocation. The budget has ignored completely some key aspects that are hurting the industry, like wage support, and the revival of inbound tourism, TCS issue for outbound agencies. Further, when so much is being said about domestic travel the least they could have done was to offer tax benefits to domestic travellers and/ or companies doing large MICE events in India.
