The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about an unprecedented crisis all over the world, with huge repercussions on economic, social, political and health dimensions. In this study, we explore the economic impacts in case of India, specifically on the most dynamic sector of the economy, namely the tourism sector. India with its geographically and culturally vast landscape attracts travelers for a multitude of reasons-from business to leisure. But after this pandemic the position of tourism sector became unpredictable and unimaginable. The economic consequences of this outbreak will be serious and it will cause damages to tourist destinations including hospitality sectors. The tourism sector will face various problems like decline in domestic and foreign tourists, reduce foreign exchange earnings, unemployment etc. This paper is an effort to identify the consequences faced by the tourism sector during the pandemic period and suggest some measures for the post protection and upliftment of the sector.
