Ac­cord­ing to Suresh Peri­wal, Manag­ing Direc­tor, Club­side Tours and Trav­els, one of the most im­por­tant re­forms, to be im­ple­mented this year is GST. Peri­wal says, “The tourism in­dus­try had not re­cov­ered from the re­ces­sion in Europe when de­mon­eti­sa­tion hit us. This move has had a huge im­pact on the out­bound and do­mes­tic travel mar­ket. Any in­crease in the taxes ap­pli­ca­ble post GST will be a fur­ther de­ter­rent for tourists to travel.” He cites this as a vi­tal rea­son for the gov­ern­ment to con­sider the tax slabs rea­son­ably un­der GST. “It is im­por­tant that the Union Bud­get in­tro­duces in­cen­tives which will help to re­vive the in­dus­try from the set­backs we have seen,” he adds.
