The US has put India in the list of countries like Pakistan Iraq Syria. And its citizens have been told to avoid traveling to India. The US administration states that India is included in the list of dangerous countries. The United States has imposed these restrictions on India, threatening the lives of its citizens.
The US administration believes that India is not a safe place for foreign nationals. And any kind of unpleasant incident can happen to them. Given this situation, the US administration has advised its citizens not to travel to India.
Investment will be adversely affected
Recently large US companies Google, Facebook and IBM have invested large amounts in India. However, now this investment may slow down following travel restrictions imposed by the US administration. This may increase the difficulties of the Indian economy in the coming days.
Let us tell you for information that at this time the economy of India is going through a very bad phase. In such a situation, this new ban of America can increase the difficulties of Indian economy even more.
This will have a different effect that foreign investment coming from the US is also expected to decrease. At the same time, trade between India and America may also be affected in the coming years. For information, the United States is one of India’s largest trade partner countries.
Dream of self-dependent India will be a shock
Recently Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for making the country self-sufficient. And had asked the industrialists of the country that they should make their own goods here. Now we will import at least goods from outside.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream could be dealt a blow by US sanctions. Because it will affect trade between India and America. India’s self-fulfilling dream is believed to be a setback. Let us tell you for information that in the trade between India and America, India exports more to America. While imports rarely do. The United States is among the few countries where India is seen to be profitable in trade.
In such a situation, if the trade is less than the US, then experts are anticipating that India’s trade deficit will increase even more in the coming years.
Tourism industry will be most affected
New travel restrictions in the US are going to be a nightmare for India’s tourism industry. Let us tell you for information that tourism has been given the status of an industry in India. If the US does not withdraw the advice given to its citizens, then the number of tourists coming from America will be reduced.
In such a situation, the Indian tourism industry is considered to be a setback. The tourism industry is already facing a lot of difficulties due to the corona virus. One of the most affected industries worldwide is the tourist industry.
American citizens are important for India’s tourism industry anyway. When an American citizen comes to India, he spends the most in India. Apart from this, America is also the highest in the number of long-term tourists. Whenever a foreign national comes to India, on average, he stays in India for 22 days. Whereas an American citizen likes to stay in India for about 28 days. American citizens are important for Indian industry.
If America advises its citizens that they should avoid traveling to India, this will increase the difficulties of the Indian tourist industry even more in the coming days. Let us tell you for information that tourism has been given the status of industry to industry in India. It provides employment to crores of people in India.
Fear of rising unemployment
Tourism is one of the industries in India that provides the most employment. Tourism industry provides the maximum employment in India after automobile.
In such a situation, if the US does not withdraw the advice given to its citizens, then in the coming days, the unemployment rate in the tourism industry is also being anticipated.
Let us tell you for information that the worst situation in the last 70 years is still unemployment in India. The unemployment rate in India has now reached around 9% according to a report in BBC. Which is a very bad situation. In such a situation, if the tourist industry is also affected, then a large number of people can go from there. This will not only affect the life of citizens of India. Rather, the difficulties are going to increase even more for the government in the coming days.
According to a report published in the Indian Express, nearly two crore jobs have been lost due to Corona virus in India. In the coming time, more people can get jobs. In such a situation, if the tourism industry is also shocked by the US, then this pace can increase at an even faster pace.
Bad news for Government’s efforts
The Corona virus has caused a worldwide economy to collapse. India is also not untouched by this. The biggest problem in India is about employment. At present, the unemployment rate in the country has reached around 9%. Which is a very bad news.
The Government of India is continuously running new skill development programs to provide employment to the people. In such a situation, if the US is advising its citizens not to travel to India, then in the coming years, the hotel industry can lead to employment of a large number of people in the tourism industry and its related industries. This is going to affect the economy of India as well.
Let us tell you for the information that the Indian economy is going through a difficult time at this time. According to a report by NDTV, the deficit of states in India could reach around 91% of GDP this year. Which is a very bad situation.
On the other hand, organizations related to the tourism industry have demanded from the government that they should pressurize the US to lift the travel restrictions imposed on India. Tourism-related organizations say that the tourism industry is already going through a difficult phase because of the corona virus. And these travel restrictions imposed by America are going to increase the difficulties of the tourism industry even more in the coming days. In such a situation, we demand from the government that this issue should be resolved in one way or the other.
If this is not done then a large number of people can lose their jobs. And it is going to have a direct impact on the economy as well.
