'Safe and Honorable Tourism' aims to strengthen the critical pillar of ' Suraksha'(safety) and ensure that Indian tourism follows international standards of safe tourism practices, applicable for both tourists and local residents i.e. local people and communities who may be impacted by tourism in some way. Its central objective is to ensure that tourism activities are undertaken, integrating the need to protect the dignity, safety and the right to freedom from exploitation of all tourists and local residents involved in or impacted by tourism. In today's scenario, following safety guidelines is not just about adhering to the provisions of the seven pillars but also Implies good business. As the demand from travelers for safe and secure tourism services increases, this code will assist signatories to build capacities among their services chains and personnel so as to be able to respond to this demand.
