This information, on the contrary, has revealed that after Ajgaonkar took over as the Minister for Tourism in March 2017, the expenditure on tourism-related road shows increased exorbitantly by way of inclusion of event management agencies, which replaced the officials of the department involved in such events.
The road shows of the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) and the Ministry of Tourism (MoT) held in the USA and Canada, as well as the PATA road shows at Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Vienna, Prague and Warsaw, in which the Goa Tourism Development Corporation (GTDC) had participated in the year 2016, were without engaging the services of any event management agency by the Corporation.
In stark contrast, huge expenditure in multiple of crores has been borne by the department of tourism, towards the fees paid to such agencies, which have been recently empanelled to organise such road shows as well as create infrastructure for various tour and travel events.
