UGC informed that during a review meeting on May 17, 2022 held by PM Modi, it was advised that universities should identify a tourist destination and encourage students to learn about that place, and plan visits as part of annual study tours.

“The young students need to be encouraged to visit the tourist destinations of India to learn about rich Indian heritage, culture, architecture, wildlife, etc. To achieve this aim, the Ministry of Tourism has prepared a concept note for the adoption of Tourist destinations by universities...To enhance the knowledge of students about our country….” the commission said.
