Karan Anand, head of relationships at Cox & Kings Ltd told business daily, “One of the reasons for this improvement is that foreign governments don’t view Indian travellers with suspicion and welcome Indian tourists. They are of the opinion that Indians who come to their country do so for leisure or business and return home.”

“The main reason behind the increasing acceptance of Indian tourists is that the Indian government has opened its arms to foreign tourists over the last five years”
