It was in 1958 when the government realised the importance of tourism in India, which led to the formation of a separate department of tourism. Last year, to mark 75 years of India’s independence and under the aegis of ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’, National Tourism Day was celebrated on a grand scale.
