Pre-budget Expectation 2022

Union Budget 2022-23:

  1. By Mr Gaurav Aggarwal, Founder & CEO, Savaari Car Rentals“Despite the delta variant hitting the world early in 2021, travel and tourism industry witnessed a strong resumption during the second half. However, the support from the government to boost growth was minimal, with the slashing of the ministry of tourism budget by 19% in 2021-22 compared to the 2020-21 numbers. Today, with the global scare of omicron, the situation for the sector is scarily close to a repeat of 2021. While international travel remains largely restricted this year, it serves as the fitting opportunity for the domestic hospitality sector to revive and recover the heavy losses incurred since the pandemic. The government’s role is crucial to inject life into the beleaguered sector. The industry is looking forward to expanded budgetary allocations for industry investments, tax relief and enhanced infrastructure in 2022We expect a budgetary allocation of Rs. 3000 crores for tourism promotion and publicity, and the development of the domestic tourism infrastructure”.
