Mr. Pali Badwal, Managing Director, RCI India - "We at RCI are delighted to welcome the Honorable Finance Minister's speech in which he mentioned about the setting up of five tourism zones along with the launch of the second worldwide Incredible India campaign. On an average, in 2016 India has seen a 10% rise in foreign tourist arrivals to our country. Post this budget we hope these numbers would grow and India would now be even more accessible to global travelers through timeshare thereby offering many opportunities for them to visit and experience what our country has to offer. This is in line with RCI's theme of 'Taking More Vacations'. Also, the steps taken to launch dedicated tourism and pilgrimage trains would further help to boost tourism in India. RCI is committed to catering to this announcement by affiliating with the government to develop the travel and tourism industry in our country" - Pali Badwal, Managing Director, RCI India.
