Electronic Tourist Visa (e-Visa) continues to be the game changer for tourism sector as 1.69 million foreigners visited India in 2017 availing this travel document which is over 57 per cent more than the previous year, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said Sunday.

Inaugurating the "Paryatan Parv", a 12-day tourism festival at the India Gate lawns, Singh said India is full of cultural diversity but yet it is unbreakable.

"Indian culture is very rich. Its rich civilisation is discussed across the world. Its the only country where followers of all the imparted religions are found.

"There are a great number of languages, dialects and dresses. Its a country full of diversity. Still, it is incredible and unbreakable," Singh said.
