Foreign tourist arrivals in India grew by 2.1 percent in the first two months of this year despite the Delhi gang rape, Minister for Tourism K. Chiranjeevi said Wednesday.

"There has been some speculation in the media about the state of Indian tourism because of some extremely unfortunate events," Chiranjeevi said at a tourism related function.

"The growth of foreign tourists has been positive," he added.

Foreign tourist arrivals grew by 2.1 percent in January and February, he said.

"There is no negative growth. During these two months, foreign exchange earnings from tourism rose by 19.8 percent in rupee terms and 11.4 percent in dollar terms," he added.

Chiranjeevi said his ministry had discussed the safety of foreign tourists with chief ministers and of all states and police chiefs. "We will take care (of the foreign tourists) to the maximum," he said.
