« on: April 27, 2013, 11:57:34 AM »
NEW DELHI: Arrival of foreign tourists in India grew by 2.3% in the first three months of 2013 despite the Delhi gang-rape and cases of sexual assaults on foreign tourists.

In response to a Parliament question, tourism minister K Chiranjeevi informed the Lok Sabha that 20.27 lakh foreign tourists arrived in India from January to March 2013 compared to 19.81 lakh in the same period in 2012, an increase of 2.3%.

"The ministry of tourism has posted its advisory on the website indicating that India remains a safe destination for international visitors including women tourists," Chiranjeevi said.
