Tourism is a vital source of income generator for many regions and countries, and India is no exception. In real sense, it directly affects not only the social, cultural, educational, and economic sectors of any national society but also on international relations. It brings in large amounts of income into a local economy in the form payment for goods and services needed by the tourists. It is a potent way of transferring capital from rich regions to poor ones, particularly in the era of liberalisation and globalisation. Further, it also creates opportunities for employment in the service sector of the economy associated with tourism. In recent years, India has gained good exponential growth in the Tourism Industry and Hazaribagh (Jharkhand) is one of the most preferred destinations of both domestic and overseas travellers. Jharkhand and markedly Hazaribagh, rich in natural and cultural heritage, have remained underdeveloped and unexplored area until now. Besides these, the area has potential to attract the tourists on the basis of rich art and craft along with some tribal festivals. The paper examines the development potential of tourism in Hazaribagh. It also explores as how development of tourism in Hazaribagh can pay off economically and socially deprived population, particularly the tribal people of the region.

Abstract


Tourism is a vital source of income generator for many regions and countries, and India is no exception. In real sense, it directly affects not only the social, cultural, educational, and economic sectors of any national society but also on international relations. It brings in large amounts of income into a local economy in the form payment for goods and services needed by the tourists. It is a potent way of transferring capital from rich regions to poor ones, particularly in the era of liberalisation and globalisation. Further, it also creates opportunities for employment in the service sector of the economy associated with tourism. In recent years, India has gained good exponential growth in the Tourism Industry and Hazaribagh (Jharkhand) is one of the most preferred destinations of both domestic and overseas travellers. Jharkhand and markedly Hazaribagh, rich in natural and cultural heritage, have remained underdeveloped and unexplored area until now. Besides these, the area has potential to attract the tourists on the basis of rich art and craft along with some tribal festivals. The paper examines the development potential of tourism in Hazaribagh. It also explores as how development of tourism in Hazaribagh can pay off economically and socially deprived population, particularly the tribal people of the region.
