The region of Jammu and Kashmir has seen 1.62 crore tourists in 2022, the highest in India's 75 years of independence.

The Union Territory's increased tourism has led to the highest levels of employment across a number of regions, showcasing the territory's overall development through a proactive strategy, transformative projects, and necessary reforms to strengthen J&K for its people, culture, and society.

J&K has allocated Rs. 786 crore (US$ 95.81 million) to the tourism sector, which has shown outstanding progress recently, including a large increase in profit collection.

In the last few years, the infrastructural and social development of the region and its people have advanced quickly.

In recent years, air traffic and tourist levels to Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh- a tourism destination that is currently being pushed on all available international forums have reached record highs.

The locals' trust in the state's institutional mechanism has been reaffirmed by these initiatives and the overall local-friendly strategy used up until now.
