 Particulars of Organization, function and duties. [ Sec 4 (1)(b)(i)].


Tourism was a late starter in Nagaland. Tourism had a subordinate status prior to 1981 in Nagaland when it was a part of the Department of Information and Public Relations. The Department of Tourism came into being as a fully fledged Directorate of Tourism about three decades back in 1981. The reason for establishing a separate Directorate was to focus on the development of Tourism in the state in the first two decades of its existence.

Since 1981, the Department of Tourism has been looking after the activities of tourism development in the state. The department however, could not take off on its own due to many problems and restrictions, such as, lack of adequate infrastructural facilities and travel restrictions to the state, insurgency and turbulent socio-political situation in the state for over two decades adversely affected any efforts of the department resulting in negligible tourism in the state. However, with the lifting of the Protected Area Permit (PAP) by the Home Ministry in the last two years which has been again extended for another year. The number of tourists has started showing remarkable increase. The issue of Inner Line Permit (ILP) for domestic tourists has been also made more convenient by issuing them in Nagaland Houses outside the State.

The state government has realized the importance of tourism development as a support to cultural and socio-economic development of the state. Under the State Industrial Policy of Nagaland – 2000, Tourism has been accorded the status of ‘Priority Sector’. Tourism activities have been made eligible for all benefits and subsidies to the industry. Financial assistance for private tourism projects is being organized through various finance corporations.


The prime aims and objectives of the Department are-:

  • To provide a planned development of tourism based on promotion of domestic and international tourism.
  • Identification of tourist potential areas and development of these resources and strengthening of the existing and viable infrastructures on a selective and intensive basis for maximum benefit to the state economy.
  • To prepare and implement a master plan for integrated development and marketing of identified circuits.
  • To create and provide necessary infrastructural facilities such as power, water, roads transportation accommodations etc. for development of tourism in the state.
  • To improve, diversify and expand the marketing of tourism products in the state
  • To promote private entrepreneurship and gradually shift towards selective privatization of the Govt. infrastructure by way of leasing to private individuals/groups or firms and business houses etc.
  • Creation of tourism infrastructure so as to preserve the distinctive handicrafts, folk arts and culture of the state and thereby attract more tourists.
  • To take up more Rural Tourism Projects and create job opportunities and earning capacities to the local community.
  • Promote conservation and enhancement of natural resources as regards to flora and fauna, natural beauty, forest and unique features of the state through regulated development.
  • To promote Eco-Tourism and Adventure Tourism as the state is ideal for such

tourism activities.

  • Promotion of rural ethnic, cultural, eco and adventure tourism.
  • To create awareness about the potential of tourism and thereby, generates the growth of a tourist friendly culture.
  • To recognize the Department of tourism for a more effective functioning.
  • Development of human resource in tourism related activities.


The Department functions as the Nodal Agency for the development of Tourism in the State. It plays a crucial role in implementing programmes of the infrastructural development, strengthening promotion and marketing efforts and generating Tourism awareness to the general public. The function of the department mainly consists of the following:-

  • Policy formulating and Planning;
  • Co-ordination and liaisoning with various organizations and Department for over all Tourism development inputs;
  • Publicity, marketing facilities;
  • Tourist Awareness Generation;
  • Co-ordination and organizing Fairs and Festivals;
  • Implementation of Tourism related project under CSS and State Plan.
  • Fair and festivals

Fairs and festivals not only reflect the rich cultural heritage of Nagaland, but could also become the biggest attraction for tourists.  Places/villages which regularly observe such traditional festivals annually will be encouraged further and will be clearly shown as tourist destinations of Nagaland and the Government shall accord priority for the infrastructural de.velopment, improvement and marketing of such places.

  • The Hornbill Festival of Nagaland (1st to 10th  December Annually)


The Hornbill Festival of Nagaland, organized by the State Government is being recognized as a National Event, by the Ministry of Tourism, is an annual tourism promotional event to showcase Nagaland’s traditional and cultural heritage in all its ethnicity, diversities and grandeur. It is the coming together of all the elements that make up the total Nagaland .The Hornbill Festival is a collaborative celebration of various tribal units and concerned NGO’s/Organization. The Festival is a tribute to the great “Hornbill”, which is the most admired and revered bird for the Nagas, for its qualities of alertness and grandeur. The majestic bird is closely identified with the social and cultural life of the Nagas as reflected in various tribal folklores, dances and songs. The awe and admiration for the bird is symbolically displayed on almost all tribal traditional headgears worn during the festivities and is indicative of the commonness amongst the Nagas. The Hornbill Festival of Nagaland is a cultural extravaganza to revive, protect and preserve the richness and uniqueness of the Naga Heritage, while for the visitors to this event it is a means for a closer understanding of the Naga People, their Land and Culture.

  1. b) Traditional Festivals

Nagaland is a vibrant state, with music in the air. A land of folklores,   festivals & dances passed down the generations through words of mouth. Music here is an integral part of life. The traditional folk songs, the poetic love songs, the gospels and the exquisite classical tunes- it has them all in all the 16 major and other sub-tribes. Therefore, in order to revive, preserve and promote every cultural tradition, the department of tourism continues to sponsor the traditional festivals on a rotation basis annually.

  • Tourism Potential in Nagaland
  • Ecotourism:

In response to this increasing appreciation of nature experiences, a new travel ethic has arisen which is now called ecotourism. This term has become increasingly popular in both conservation and travel circles. Nagaland has a vast potential for ecotourism development and therefore, the department’s policies and activities are framed in the line of eco-tourism.

  • Rural and Village Tourism:

Tourism growth potential can be harnessed as a strategy for Rural Development. The development of a strong platform around the concept of Rural Tourism is definitely useful for a state like Nagaland, where almost 75% of the population lives in villages. Across the world the trends of industrialization and development have had an urban centric approach. Alongside, the stresses of urban lifestyles have led to a “counter-urbanization” syndrome. This has led to growing interest in the rural areas. At the same time, this trend of urbanization has led to falling income levels, lesser job opportunities in the rural areas leading to an urbanization syndrome in the rural areas. Rural Tourism is one of the few activities which can provide a solution to these problems. Besides, there are other factors which are shifting the trend towards rural tourism like increasing levels of awareness, growing interest in heritage and culture and improved accessibility, and environmental consciousness. In the developed countries, this has resulted in a new style of tourism of visiting village settings to experience and live a relaxed and healthy lifestyle.The implementation is done through Village Tourism Development Board (VTDB).

Identification of villages is based on the merits of tourism point of view where villages are identified for taking up of rural tourism projects after a thorough survey and inspection by the Deptt. of Tourism.

  • Community Based Tourism

Community-based tourism development is receiving increased attention from a variety of sectors for those in government and non-governmental organizations who have long been working with communities on wildlife and natural resource management, tourism enterprises are seen as one form of sustainable utilization with potential to bring economic, as well as social, benefits to the communities. For those in government and the private sector working to develop the tourism product, development in community areas and involvement of local people is one essential element though until now relatively unexplored.

The development of tourism in community areas and the involvement of local people in tourism can promote several important objectives. These include faster economic growth in the regions, improved welfare and equity, empowerment of local people, improved resource conservation by local people, and finally, diversification of the Nagaland tourism product, particularly in “eco-tourism” market.

  • Adventure Tourism:

Adventure travel is a type of tourism involving exploration or travel to remote, exotic and possibly hostile areas, where the traveler should “expect the unexpected”. Adventure tourism is rapidly growing in popularity as tourists seek different kinds of vacations.  Adventure “may be any tourist activity including two of the following three components: a physical activity, a cultural exchange or interaction, and engagement with nature.
Adventure tourism gains much of its excitement by allowing its participants to step outside of their comfort zone. This may be from experiencing culture shock, or through the performance of acts that require significant effort and involve some degree of risk (real or perceived) and/or physical danger. This may include activities such as mountaineeringtrekkingglidingmountain bikingrafting and rock climbing.

  • Improvement of tourist infrastructure.ANNEXURE -2
  • Hotels are an important vital segment of the tourism infrastructure. It will, therefore, be the Endeavour of the state Policy to have a list of Government approved/ registered hotels/lodges under the State Tourist Trade Act, which would be expected to function within the laid down norms / guidelines of the Government. These hotels/ lodges will also be subjected to regular inspection by a committee, comprising of the department of tourism, food and sanitation, and the police administration. These approved hotels will feature in all the publication of the department in the print as well as in the electronic media in India and abroad and will be eligible for incentives announced by the Government from time to time.
  • Paying Guest accommodation will be introduced in some selected places/villages for providing affordable and hygienic accommodation for both domestic and foreign tourists and to take care of the seasonal flow of tourists. Selection of such places will be on need basis requirement and tourist potential area of the place. Appropriate regulatory guidelines will be brought out in this regard.
  • Some of the infrastructures set up by the department, such as the tourist rest houses, way side amenities, tourist lodges, resorts etc. will also be leased out to interested local parties/organizations/village councils/VDBs/churches/ women’s organization/ youth organizations etc. on payment of nominal rent to the department. But the management has to ensure certain minimum standard facilities and comfort to the visitors.
  • Participation of private reputed entrepreneurs from outside the state will also be encouraged in the setting up of and management of quality and standard tourist infrastructures on a joint ventures basis.
  • Tour Operators/Travel AgenciesANNEXURE – 2

Travel Agents and tour operators constitute an important sector of tourism industry and it
will be the state policy to issue special permits to tour operators/ travel agents who are
registered with the Department of Tourism, Nagaland in the interest of promoting tourism
within the state. These travel agents and tour operators will be granted all possible assistance
from the State Government for accommodation, transportation, travel permits, liaisoning with
the districts etc. and will be eligible for all incentives of the state government.
Under human resource, the department has trained educated unemployed Naga youths both
inside and outside Nagaland for capacity building. Most of them were trained as tour
operators and local tourist guides. The department shall continue the capacity building
programmes as the experience proves positive impact.

  • Marketing and overseas publicity:

Marketing of the tourism products of an area is essential in order to inform prospective tourists what the area has to offer, as well as to persuade them to visit it. Today tourism industry is highly competitive arena with many destinations competing against each other to attract the potential tourists. Thus the state has to be prepared to meet this competition through an aggressive marketing strategy by:

  • Production of publicity materials, such as brochures, tourist literatures, handouts, audio visual materials/films etc., hosting of websites etc.
  • Media advertising in specific journals, periodicals, hoardings, internet etc.
  • Participation in various tourism related conferences, fairs, marts held in the country and on a selective basis abroad.
  • Thrust on public relations during the first phase of tourism development by organization FAME tours for travel writers and travel agents of other states and countries.

For developing a vibrant and a successful tourism industry, organizational structure need to be instituted, improved and augmented, as the tourism industry requires state and local level planning, provision of infrastructure, regulation, marketing and management of tourists infrastructure and attractions. The state policy will address these issues of organizational structure at three levels:

  1. Apex level
  2. Departmental level
  3. Attraction specific/local level

Nagaland Tourism Council:   to take policy decision on steps to boast the tourism sector and give their recommendations on tourism related problems, activities and development, programs. The council will be headed by the Chief Minister and will meet at least once a year. Other members will be the minister of tourism, Home, Industry, R & B, Art & Culture, Rural Development, PHED, Forest & Environment, the Chief Secretary and the commissioner. The Commissioner/Secretary (Tourism) will be the member secretary.

  3. Tourist information offices of Nagaland will be established in Delhi and Guwahati in addition to the one in Kolkata.
  4. District tourism office to be set up in all the districts of Nagaland for coordination at the district level.
  5. A “Research Cell cum Registration Cell” will be constituted in the Deptt. of tourism. The Cell will gather tourist related information and statistics to prepare a Data bank and to give advice to the Deptt. from time to time as well as see to the registration of all activities under the Nagaland Registration of Tourist Trade Act.
  6. There will also be the implementing wing of all infrastructural activities of the Department, to be executed by the department. Additional technical hand will be available from the PWD Department.


Whereas, Government structure is of a top down nature, it is also necessary to have inputs from the local level in the districts as well as the villages so that the plans and programs of tourism reflect grass root realities and private participation be encouraged. Regarding Rural Tourism Projects, the village council shall form Village Tourism Development Board (VTDB), in order to sustain the project. The VTDB are to meet frequently for the success of the Rural Tourism Projects.

The purpose of forming Village Tourism Development Board (VTDB) is that Tourism  growth  potential  can  be  harnessed  as  a  strategy  for  Rural Development. The development of a strong platform around the concept of Rural Tourism is definitely useful for a state like Nagaland,  where almost 95% of the population resides in rural areas. Across the world the trends of industrialization and development have had an urban centric approach. Alongside,  the  stresses  of  Urban  lifestyles  have  led  to   a   “counter-urbanization”  syndrome.   This has led to growing interest in the rural areas. Rural  Tourism  is  one  of  the  few activities  which  can provide  a solution to these  problems. Besides, there are other factors  which are  shifting  the  trend  towards  rural  tourism  like increasing  levels  of  awareness,  growing  interest   in  heritage  and  culture and  improved accessibility, and environmental consciousness. In the developed countries, this  has  resulted  in  a  new  style  of  tourism  of visiting  village  settings  to experience and live  a  relaxed  and  healthy lifestyle. This concept has taken the shape of a formal kind of Rural Tourism.


The role of the VTDB are-

  1. To uplift rural life and bring about economic changes
  2. To promote rural art and culture, folklore, tradition and  heritage
  3. To promote eco and adventure tourism
  4. To advocate sustainable tourism and uphold livelihood
  5. To create job opportunities and encourage dignity of labour
  6. To encourage local artisans and craftsmen
  7. To protect and preserve flora and fauna
  8. To create awareness on cleanness and sanitation


The VTDB members are elected directly or indirectly from among the Village Council members who are considered the highest decision-making body in the rural villages, with addition members from other frontal organizations in their respective villages. Therefore, the decision of the Village Council or VTDB is final and binding in regard to any decision/policy regarding the management or development of Tourism activities in a particular village.

The VTDB hold meeting at regular intervals and when the need arises and the accessibility of the meeting minutes to the public depends on the stake holders/

NTA- In order to promote tourism activities, the Nagaland Tourism Association was formed under the guidance to the Department. The role of NTA is to collaborate with the Department in promoting and participating in Tourism activities and organized guided tour in and around Nagaland. The arrange package tours and create tourism awareness.
