Abstract

Tourism is an important medium in the socio-economic development in the modern times, contributing in multiple ways to reinforce the inter-connected processes. Tourism is acknowledged to be crucially important for development due to its multifaceted nature encompassing economic, social, political, environmental, cultural and psychological characteristics. India has been working towards developing the tourism sector over the past decade. However, compared to other countries in the region India's performance in the sector has been rather poor. Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation Ltd. (MTDC) is the nodal agency for the promotion of tourism in Maharashtra. As compared to the rest of Maharashtra, tourism in the Nandurbar district is in its infancy. Nandurbar is a tribal district bestowed with abundant natural resources. Utilizing it to bring about socio –economic development of people is quintessential need of the hour. Harnessing of the resource in the interest of the masses is of prime importance. The district is recognized for its tribal population and undulating landscapes of the Satpura ranges on the northern end of the district. Nandurbar has a good mix of tourism assets like national parks, water bodies, hill station and religious and historic sites. It is mainly confined to local visitations with negligible tourist spending and contribution to the local economy. The nature and scope of the study called for a multi-disciplinary approach as regards the skill inputs required as well as involvement and close cooperation from multiple agencies like PWD, Roads, Water Supply department and Archaeological Survey of India. This paper aims to study and understand the tourism potential of the district and to proposed the proper infrastructural development to the district so that can sustain the proposed tourist flow and give better comfort to the tourist visiting the district. This research work aims to identify the various such locations and create the Tourist circuits which a visitor can visit enthusiastically. For this, various circuits were identified and priority was given on the basis of TOPSIS tool. For the selected circuit, Various infrastructure development projects were recognised which are essential for the development of that circuit and thereby increasing attention of tourist.
