New Delhi: The government on Wednesday said the national tourism policy, which is in the offing, would become a catalyst to drive the tourism industry and give a fillip to infrastructure projects.


Speaking at the first tourism investors meet here, Lalit K. Panwar, secretary in the tourism ministry, said electronic visa on arrival (VOA) has become a game-changer and the government tends to extend VOA to 150 countries by the end of this fiscal year.

Also, the Indian Culinary Institute would become a reality soon and help produce world-class supporting staff and workers for the travel and hospitality sector, he said.
