Ministry of Tourism has engaged National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER) in January, 2021 to conduct study on “India and the Coronavirus Pandemic: Economic Losses for Households Engaged in Tourism and Policies for Recovery. 

Minister of  Tourism and  Culture  Prahlad Singh Patel stated this in a written reply to a question in the  Rajya Sabha today.

He said, the objective of this study is to quantify the sector-wise  direct and indirect impact of tourism activities on overall economy, as a whole and especially on household income, which may be further disaggregated into different types of households like formal and informal.

It's objective is also to estimate the impact of gradual opening up of domestic tourism activities and  the sectors related to tourism and the likely impact of opening of international tourism, in the phased manner.

It aims at proposing  policy measures appropriate to provide relief to the tourism sector and households involved in tourism related activities.
