NCAER Tourism Satellite Account

Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) is the most comprehensive way to measure the economic importance of tourism in national as well as sub-national economies. It is based on the recommended framework laid down by the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) in their publication “Tourism Satellite Account: Recommended Methodological Framework 2008 (TSA: RMF 2008)”. Under the UNWTO framework, TSA comprises a set of descriptive tables that help in assessing the size and contribution of tourism to the economy. The framework provides accounts and tables and macroeconomic aggregates, principal among them being the gross value added of tourism industry (GVATI), tourism direct gross value added (TDGVA), and tourism direct gross domestic product (TDGDP). The latest TSA, which is the third for India, has been prepared for the reference year 2015-16.
