In the ancient era, India remained as one of the biggest centres of education and learning. Takshashila, Nalanda and Vikramshila became the oldest Universities of the world. These institutions did not attract the attention of domestic scholars alone but International scholars too. Accordingly, the great teachers and the students such as Kautilya, Xunzang, Fa-Hien etc. of ancient times, set the new academic heights in the academic world. Unfortunately, during the phases of time, all such big and internationally renowned centres of learning got destroyed and burnt by foreign attackers. In the changing scenario, in spite of having hundreds of central, state, private and deemed universities, we are missing top position in the world ranking of education. High budget students prefer to study in foreign universities. However, the present research paper mainly attempts to highlight the working life and job satisfaction of tourism teachers working in Government and Non-Government Academic institutions. As we are aware that the Tourism is one of the youngest and fastest growing industry and to fulfil its professionals demand, tourism as a discipline is being taught in most of the Government and Non-Government educational institutions. By and large, in the Government sector, due to lack of adequate quality resources, career and environment, teachers prefer to teach in private institutions. The emerging differences in work culture, salary paid and per day working hours are raising dissatisfaction among the teachers teaching in these institutions which turn to become the major challenge to retain the good teachers in these institutions for the betterment of the student beneficiaries.
