Tourism > Health > Education

Tripura is an attractive tourist destination. The State has a rich history, archaeology and cultural heritage, traditional art and music. There are a number of historical Hindu and Buddhist sites. The State also has rich flora and fauna. Eco-tourism as well as rural tourism is having potential in the State. There is also great potential for development of tourist circuits, involving all the NE States and if possible, Bangladesh as well. All this offers attractive opportunities for the Hospitality Industry including setting up of star category hotels.

The Govt. of Tripura has always put a lot of emphasis on healthcare for all. Over the years, a reasonably good infrastructure of health institutions has been created in the State. However, providing good healthcare to all the citizens is a gigantic task and in this respect, private sectors can play a very significant role. There are 2 (two) Medical Colleges, one in the Government sector and another one in Private sector. These Colleges have super-specialty divisions and modern radiology division. There are nursing institutes in Private & Government Sector. A Para-medical College has also come up in PPP framework. Also, there are some private Nursing Homes in the State and there is potential for more private investment in this important sector.

The Government of Tripura has similarly put a lot of emphasis on providing good education to all people and the result is a very high level of literacy in the State. The State has a Central University, one state University, ICFAI University, a National Institute of Technology (NIT), an Agriculture College, Three Engineering College, a Veterinary College, a Fisheries College and a Polytechnic Institute and 17 ITIs. However, there is a great potential for private investment in this field also, by way of setting up of educational institutions in fields like Information Technology, Telecommunication, Bio-Technology etc.
