    India tourism rate.

    In India tourism rate "has gone down" or "fallen down" by "a huge percentage" or "seventy five percent".

    In India tourist vists have gone down by "half" or "quarter" or "seventy five percent".

    Please check.

    Re: India tourism rate.

    In India, tourist numbers have fallen by 75 percent.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: India tourism rate.

    I already corrected them. I gave you the grammatical and natural form.

    Re: India tourism rate.

    We don't really use those terms, at least in BrE. We do use tourist numbers.

    Re: India tourism rate.

    Are you suggesting that the newspaper is right and Tdol is wrong?

    If it was an Indian newspaper, it will tend to use Indian English.

    In India, the tourism rate has fallen by a huge percentage. Insert "the" and remove "down". If something has fallen, it's pretty obvious what direction it's gone.
    The second one is a bit confusing because of the quotation marks, implying it's one or the other, even though they're different meanings? For the same reason the sentence is a bit strange, but in a certain context it could be correct provided it's "... fallen by a half or a quarter."
