KTIL - Building God's Own Country
Tourist Resorts (Kerala) Ltd. (KTIL), established under the Govt. of Kerala, is the agency for tourism investment promotion and infrastructure development in Kerala. It was incorporated in August 1989.
Kerala is today growing at an amazing pace in tourism, adhering to the principles of indigenousness, environmental friendliness and community participation. Asia's most sought-after tourism spot and India's only Superbrand, Kerala, renowned all over the world as God's Own Country, currently registers remarkable growth rates, substantiating the World Travel and Tourism Council's forecast that it would see the highest growth rate in the world, ie., 11.6%, in this decade.
This remarkable growth has also created an infrastructure gap in various tourism amenities, resulting in a disparity in supply and demand. KTIL is working towards creating various investment, development and partnership models to address this issue and to catalyse growth.
KTIL’s current activities are broadly segmented into PPP Model Projects, RE-NRK Partnership Projects and Govt. Owned Projects.
- PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP
KTIL pioneered the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model in tourism infrastructure development in Kerala.
- RE-NRK PARTNERSHIP
KTIL introduced the Resident Entrepreneur – Non Resident Keralite (RE-NRK) partnership in tourism investments.
- GOVT. OWNED PROJECTS
KTIL is also engaged in bulding up fully government owned projects bolstering the tourism potential of the state like Sarovaram bio-park at Calicut, Heritage Tourism Circuit in Thalassery etc.
