Government policy on rural tourism

Government can bring out policy for promoting rural tourism and help it reach all deserving villages.

  1. Ensure that villages are not discriminated based on history,geography,demography,religion or natural location. Build a belief that every village has got the potential.
  2. Ensure that any village can be converted into a tourist destination without any administrative hassles.
  3. A single form/application from any social entrepreneur should take care of recognizing that village as a tourist destination, form necessary trusts for financial transactions.
  4. Ensure that most of the funds is managed by village self help group/cooperative/trusts.
  5. All revenue generated directly or indirectly through rural tourism should be tax free.

Please add to the list. I am not good at policymaking.
