Since most tourists sites are located away from the urban centres, the trend is towards an increase in the share of tourism outside the well known urban centers.

These organisations are acting as catalyst to generate synergy between tourism, related industries, the government and international agencies.They are also working towards involving local panchayats in the villages in the process.
All these efforts are aimed at establishment of infrastructure with smooth exchange of information among all the stake holders resulting in a robust Rural Tourism establishment.
