Portraying the beauty of India as an attractive tourist destination by highlighting its rich culture and glorious history, Incredible India is an international tourism campaign that has been run by the Government of India since 2002. The campaign was conceptualized by Shri Amitabh Kant, the then Joint Secretary to Tourism Department. Indian actor Shri Aamir Khan was commissioned to endorse the campaign, titled “Atithi Devo Bhava”, which is Sanskrit translation for “Guests are like God”. Atithi Devo Bhava was aimed at creating awareness about the effects of tourism and sensitising the local population about the preservation of India’s heritage, culture, and hospitality. In 2017, veteran actor Shri Amitabh Bachchan and actress Smt. Priyanka Chopra were chosen as the new brand ambassadors for the Incredible India campaign.
The Incredible India Logo was conceptualized by Shri Amitabh Kant, along with his counterparts. The exclamation mark in the Logo forms the letter ‘I” of India and was used creatively across several visuals, which compliments the concept behind the word “Incredible”.
