Tourism is one of the largest industries in the world, but the impact of tourism is extremely varied, with both positive and negative fallouts. This has led to a greater focus on sustainable development of tourism for the economy, environment, and society at large.

While tourism is the second largest industry in India, there does not seem to be any concerted efforts.

The main challenge of this essay is evaluating the role of Tour Operators of India. Our basic hypothesis is that flexibility of management is the most important factor of Sustainable Tourism Development in India, which they are offering services to tourists, and so they attract more tourists. Thus, if they do not perform their tasks with a harmony and proper planning, not only they will cause tourists not to trust in Tourism of India, but also they will cause decrease in economic benefits and other profits. Therefore, tour operators can act like dealers and offer numerous services to tourists.

What is especially important is that for Tour Operators, to be able to create suitable conditions to encourage tourists visit this country, they need to have high knowledge and proficiency, so that these factors can affect the results of their function evaluation and development of tourism industry in India.

In this essay we try to indicate Sustainable Tourism Development, Statues of India in Sustainable Tourism, of Sustainable Tourism and Structural modeling of Sustainable Tourism Development in India and review and analyze functions of the managing Tour Operators in Sustainable tourism Development in India.

In this respect, we define Tour Operators and deal with the pathology or evaluating functions of Sustainable Tourism Development. Finally the hypotheses that Tour Operators can play an important role in Indian Sustainable Tourism Development by increasing the educational level of their managers, tour leaders and suppliers considering process and Technology factors are examined.
