Assignment B

The Andhra Pradesh Government has finalised the State Tourism Policy, which lays special thrust on private sector participants with incentives such as concessional land allotment, capital investment subsidy, reimbursement of stamp duty, VAT and luxury tax.

At a high-powered meeting chaired by the Chief Minister, Mr K. Rosaiah, the finer details of the policy were addressed and approved. The policy was formally announced at the World Tourism Day celebrations on September 27, according to the Tourism Minister, Ms J. Geetha Reddy.

The focus of the policy is to position the State competitively for attracting private sector investments in tourism and hospitality projects and promote inbound tourism across various destinations beyond Tirupati, Puttaparthi, Hyderabad and Vizag. It is proposed to target the incentives to the private sector according to the Government’s priorities in terms of geographical areas and tourism products.

As a part of the policy framework, the Government has identified areas and products that could be developed through private sector participation. The Government’s priority is the need to focus on “common man”, and create necessary support infrastructure to suit the requirements.

The new policy proposes concessional allotment of land, which includes lease of up to 33 years at 5 per cent of basic value with an incremental provision of 5 per cent every year. It also covers a capital investment subsidy of 20 per cent for investment up to Rs 2,00,00,000 only. For investment of over Rs 10,00,00,000 crore, the subsided would be considered on a case-to-case basis.

The policy has also provided for reimbursement of stamp duty, transfer fee and VAT. The benefits for VAT could be offered up to five years.

There is also some concession with regard to luxury tax and power tariff. The Government, apart from early clearances, would provide marketing support.

Que. 1) How the Andhra Pradesh government is trying to woo the private sector participation in tourism industry?
