Tourism forms a significant part of India's economy, but increased tourism can come with its own set of problems. As reported by Economic Times, India is world's 7th largest tourism economy in terms of GDP(Gross Domestic Product).
The rise in tourist population has resulted in overcrowding in many parts of the country, which in turn is affecting the environment and the locals. Today, being an aware, respectful and responsible traveller is extremely important. To travel means to explore, and not, to exploit. Several National Parks in India are witnessing the problem of overcrowding. For example, in Ranthambore National Park, though the government tried to put new rules for transports in place for conservation, it was highly protested by Ranthambore Bachao Sangharsh Samiti. The Samiti further demanded to increase the number of tourists and vehicles in the national park.
