The Union Ministry of Tourism would be organising Paryatan Parv, a festival of tourism, from 5 October 2017 in collaboration with other central ministries, state governments and stakeholders.

The main objective behind organising the festival is to draw focus on the benefits of tourism and showcase the cultural diversity of the country and to reinforce the principle of ‘Tourism for All’.

The 20-day festival would be beginning at Humayun's Tomb in Delhi. It will end on 25 October.

The festival will have three main components:

• Dekho Apna Desh

• Tourism for All

• Tourism & Governance

The components aim to encourage Indians to visit their own country by holding tourism events at sites across all states and interactive Sessions and workshops with stakeholders on varied themes.
