Anand put out a statement that said, “There was a need of Corpus of least Rs 2500 crores for global branding budget to enable Sub Branding of three Tourism segments Indian MICE, Indian adventure, Indian Heritage under the Incredible India main brand to enhance each of these verticals’ global outreach post-COVID to ensure that tourism industry would have become a mainstay domestic industry there was required an income tax exemption on travelling within India income tax credits for up to Rs 1.5 lakhs when spending with GST registered domestic tour operators, travel agents, hoteliers and transporters anywhere within the country.”
