The Need

  • Most of the tourism systems developed by Central Government, State Governments, Public sector and Private sector function in silos. As a result, the tourism ecosystem is unable to harvest the combinatorial benefits of information exchange.

In order to overcome the same, there is need for seamless standardized data exchange amongst various stakeholders
