About Us

The Department of Tourism came into being as a fully fledged Directorate of Tourism about three decades back in 1981. The reason for establishing a separate Directorate was to focus on the development of Tourism in the state in the first two decades of its existence, the department, however could not take off on its own due to many problems and restrictions, such as, lack of adequate infrastructural facilities and travel restrictions to the state. However, with the lifting of the Protected Area Permit (PAP) by the Home Ministry, Government of India in the last two years which has been again extended for another year, the number of tourist have started showing remarkable increase. The issue of Inner Line Permi (ILP) for domestic tourists has been also made more convenient by issuing them in Nagaland Houses outside the State.

Organization Structure

At the Administrative level, the Department of Tourism is headed by the Commissioner & Secretary supported by Deputy Secretary, Under Secretary and other subordinate staffs whereas, the Director is the head at the Directorate level. He is assisted by an Additional Director, two Deputy Directors, three Assistant Directors and various categories of Officers, Ministerial, Technical and Grade-IV service staffs. The office of the Directorate of Tourism has a field formation of Officers within and outside the State i.e. Dimapur, Kohima, Mokokchung, Wokha, Mon, Zunheboto, Delhi and Kolkata. These officers are responsible for providing services to the tourists, monitoring the progress of field projects and running the existing Tourist Lodges under their respective jurisdiction.
