Jammu and Kashmir: Four years after the Centre decided to repeal Article 370 and 35A and divide the state into two Union Territories, Jammu and Kashmir saw a considerable increase in both domestic and foreign tourism. Officials report that the area has welcomed an incredible 1.27 crore tourists so far this year, and the government is certain that this number will break all prior records. The decision to rescind the special designation has undoubtedly boosted travellers’ interest in picturesque and culturally diverse places.

In the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, Kashmir was a popular travel destination for visitors from outside of the country. The numbers substantially decreased when the terrorism began. And now that there is peace in the Kashmir Valley, foreign visitors are returning in droves. Foreign visitors are once more seen swarming to the well-known Dal Lake to take colourful Shikara boat excursions as J&K experiences a tourism revival.

Syed Abid Rasheed Shah, the secretary of tourism, stated to Times Now that when a lot of tourists started coming to Kashmir, the government’s top priority should be to ensure good infrastructure. According to him, the administration is building tourist infrastructure throughout UT to provide the best amenities.

Shah said that there were 20,000 more international visitors in the last seven months than there were thirty years before, which is a significant increase.

The business community in the Valley expressed happiness and praised the government’s efforts in boosting the tourism industry excessively. The players in the tourism industry told Times Now that since Article 370 was repealed, the potential of the industry has reached new heights.

The hotels are reportedly packed, and this has never happened prior to August 5, 2019. The G-20 conference opened everyone’s eyes on a global scale. The political and security framework that has been used to view J&K has also experienced a significant alteration.

The Union government has worked hard to create an atmosphere in Jammu and Kashmir that is supportive to the development of businesses, tourism, the health industry, and education since Article 370 was repealed.
