The paper critically evaluates the existing capacity building interventions for tourism sector in India. It is paradoxical that while on the one hand there is hyped skill gap, there is huge incidence of unemployment on the other hand. Author opines that interventions have not been able to ensure requisite skills inventory.

The analysis suggests that tourism industry has the potential to generate substantive number of local jobs. A different approach to capacity building is suggested. It is also suggested that other stake holders have to be included into a comprehensive intervention plan and tourism entrepreneurship must be included as a capacity building activity.
