BTDC is a multi state Cooperative society, which opens its area of operation to the most vibrant and tourism potent states of Karnataka, Goa and Kerala,. Its head Office at Mangalore. It is our modest claim that BTDC is one of the pioneering attempts in India to establish, develop, and promote tourism business upholding the cooperative principles.
BTDC intends to promote tourism and hospitality services based on pure Indian culture. It strives to protect the interests of its members and society and aims at social and economic betterment of Mother India. We endeavor to make tourism a social activity which enables every common man to engage in tourism activities in an affordable way. BTDC with the maxim "Atithi Devo Bhava" encapsulates the high honor and hospitality that our society accords to the guest and travelers. A major shortcoming in the efforts to promote tourism so far has been the inability to adopt an integrated approach.
BTDC with a cooperative and coordinated approach among the neighboring states aspires to make a good tourism experience available and affordable to as many Indians as possible including other travelling guests too. Principally, BTDC desires to accommodate and cater to the much ignored Indian middle-class domestic tourists by providing them memorable holiday experience and contribute in the nation building process by tapping the huge tourism potential of the country.
