The Third Tourism Satellite Accounts of India, 2015-16
Tourism Satellite Accounts (TSA) are a powerful tool for understanding and assessing the economics of tourism and for measuring the impact on GDP and employment. NCAER has led the way in the preparation of these tourism accounts in India by pioneering the First TSA for India for 2002–03 on the request of the Ministry of Tourism. Thereafter, NCAER also compiled the Second TSA for the year 2009–10. This report represents the Third TSA, for 2015-16. The key aggregates derived through the satellite accounts are Tourism Direct Gross Value Added (TDGVA), Tourism Direct Gross Domestic Product (TDGDP), Tourism Direct Employment, and their respective shares in the country’s total GVA, GDP, and employment. The indirect contribution of tourism is also obtained through Input-Output modelling.
