Abstract: Tourism is an increasingly popular global activity. Besides being the world’s largest export earner, it contributes significantly to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and employment of an economy. Its strong linkage with other sectors of the economy enhances its overall impact. In India too, tourism has registered a significant growth in recent years. However, its impact on the overall economy has not been quantified in a systematic way. In view of its strong linkages with other sectors of the economy this qualification is very essential and will go a long way in formulating effective polices for the development of tourism. Against this backdrop, the present paper attempts to analyse the tourism sector’s inter-linkages with the other sectors and institutions of the economy by placing it into the frameworks of an Input-Output Transactions Table (IOTT) and further in a Social Accounting Matrix.
