Even though the true potential of the tourism sector not only as a revenue generator to the country but also as a major employment generator , has been recognized by different sections of the society ,the necessary measures to remedy this situation fall short of expectation. The scenario can be remedied by initiating certain measures. Creating a better infrastructure, communicating right information, utilization of existing resources and creating a secure environment are expected from the government. Developing a sense of responsibility to behave nice with tourists and encourage them to revisit the rich cultural heritage is crucial. The importance of tourism though being realized by various states has still not created the will that can really make them realize the potential. Chhattisgarh state in the central part of India is one such state that can do a lot with its tourism potential but still it is lagging behind. The present study has been carried out to underscore what the state’s potential in tourism sector and how to enable it to achieve it.
