From giving loans to interested people to make their services better, to giving incentives, the government has encouraged a lot. In 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked tech-savvy youths to emulate the pattern of app-based cab aggregators to exploit the vast tourism potential of India by promoting the concept of homestays. Similarly in 2020, in a bid to standardise the homestay sector, the West Bengal government announced an incentive of Rs 1.5 lakh each to the ones that get registered. 

The concept of work from home has helped people to work from anywhere, so Homestay has given a new concept to people who want to work from beautiful and quiet home destinations. Himachal and Uttarakhand are trending destinations for working people.
