: India’s vast natural, historical and cultural diversity is poorly tapped by the tourism industry. According to one source, India’s position stands at 41 internationally and 11 in the Asia-Pacific region. While the Government and other agencies look into  the infrastructural and other essentials for Tourism development we see lacunae in the availability of well-trained Tour guides, Managers, Operators to develop the vast potential for  Tourism that India has to offer. Besides, the concept of Tourism and hospitality management has now widened to include Event Management for corporate groups, educational institutes etc. This service-based industry requires (besides cognitive, creative and core-competency skills in the practical and organizational aspects of the industry) crucial and well-developed interpersonal and communication skills.
