Demand for relaxing partial lockdown measures in tourism sector in Bengal

Trade bodies in West Bengal are pressing for relaxation of the partial lockdown measures clamped by the government on the job intensive tourism sector and have demanded its relaxation. The travel restriction announced by the Mamata Banerjee government to contain the spread of the disease in the state has severely impacted the state’s tourism industry, they said .

This season sees high flow of visitors to the mountains in north Bengal, the Sundarbans, Santiniketan, in the sea resorts of Digha and Mandarmani and other tourist destinations in the state. The restrictions have pushed to the wall again the tourism sector which was recovering after the previous ones in 2020 and 2021, the spokesman of the trade bodies said.

The Travel Agents Association of Bengal (TAAB) said the government must consider reopening the sector with detailed safety protocol and appoint a committee with representatives from the government, trade bodies and other stakeholders to ensure it.

The Association of Tourism Service Providers in Bengal (ATSPB) had last week demonstrated in front of Victoria Memorial in the city and appealed to the state government for the same “leeway” for the travel sector as given to malls, restaurants, salons and theatre halls .
