Decrease in Tourism IN JAMMU AND KASHIR

Category: Editorial

RAJNI SHARMA

Tourism has witnessed a decreasing trend in the state particularly in the Kashmir valley. The present unrest in the valley is one main cause of the decrease. The decrease in tourism have done a great economic loss to the valley, where the tourism is considered the mainstay of Kashmir. In the current season normally a huge rush of both national and international tourists was witnessed but due to the present unrest in the valley have given a great set back to the tourist sector of the valley. As a result not only the hoteliers have become unemployed but the Shikara and House boat owners, too,  have suffered a great loss. The tourist places present a deserted look, which indicate that another tourist season of the valley has been usurped.

So far as the decrease in the flow of tourists in the valley is concerned, ever since the eruption of militancy i.e. from 1990 the decrease of tourists in the valley has been seen. From 1990 to 1996 negligible number of tourists visited valley. In 1997 to 2002, the tourist movement in the valley started to pick up again, which continued up to 2010, when the ugly face of militancy again surfaced and tourist flow witnessed a virtual halt. Anyhow with the efforts of the state government, particularly by the tourism department, the situation became conducive for the tourism and tourists thronged the valley in great numbers. 

 But, as ill luck have it, the floods of 2014 gave a serious blow to the tourist industry in the valley, as a result in the current season the winter tourism suffered a lot. 2015 witnessed resurgence of tourism in Kashmirvalley after vigorous promotional compaign launched by the Department of Tourism, which resulted in the flow of tourists. The resurgence of tourism compelled the private Air lines owners to add more flights for the state and it was expected that in 2016 the tourism sector in the valley will develop tremendously but the increase in the militant activities dashed all these hopes to ground and not a tourist expressed his willingness to visit the valley. The decrease witnessed so low, that even the hundreds and thousands of bookings were cancelled, which led to the people related with the tourism industry, to starvation. In 2017, the situation did not show any improvement, rather the situation in the state were detoriating day by day in the valley, which put a stumbling block on the development of tourism. In the current year, no significant change has been witnessed. The government needs to take appropriate steps to revive the dying tourist industry in the state, which has affected the economic conditions of the state.
