Web-based Public Delivery System for Recognition of Travel Trade Service Providers

Ministry of Tourism has launched a Web-based Public Delivery System for recognition of the Travel Trade Service Providers. The objective of the system is to ease the process of filing applications by the Travel Trade Service Providers seeking recognition from the Ministry of Tourism and also to bring in transparency in granting the approvals. The Ministry of Tourism presently approves the following categories of Travel Trade Service Providers:

i)          Inbound Tour Operators
ii)         Travel Agents
iii)   Domestic Tour Operators
iv)   Adventure Tour Operators
v)   Tourist Transporters Operators

 The new procedure will accept applications online through a website www.etraveltradeapproval.nic.in from service providers thereby make the process paperless.

All the applications will now be examined, processed and approved / rejected within 45 days from the receipt of completed applications. This initiative is part of Ministry’s objective to move towards E-regime for approvals etc.
