Tourism Industry Growth in IndiaForeign tourist arrivals (FTAs) in India have been consistently increasing in the last 30 years. Ever since the turn of the millennium, the number of FTAs has grown at a CAGR of 9%, until 2012. Going forward, FTAs are expected to grow at a slower pace of ~5.9%.Hoteliers are looking to hire younger candidates for entry-level positions. The sector witnessed tremendous growth at ~12.4% CAGR (current prices) during 2007?12. Intrinsic growth of the sector at constant prices was approximately 2.2% in the same period. The subsequent period of 2013?17 is expected to witness a marginally higher growth rate of 2.6% at constant prices, highlighting the continuation of the sector?s golden period.With the increased thrust of inbound tourism, a large number of people might be required in the travel and tour operators segment in tier 2 and 3 cities and in popular tourist destinations in India. With increasing competition and the need to both attract and retain customers paramount for operators, high quality of service offerings becomes critical.This can only be met by employing a highly motivated and highly skilled staff across functions and roles in a hotel. This highlights the need for good quality skill imparting and training provision from supply institutions, viz. vocational, degree/ certification, graduation or finishing schools.
