Relief operations by Hospitality Industry

The Hospitality industry has come forward to support the rescue operation in Uttarakhand.

Delhi Hotel & Restaurant Association has decided to offer free rooms, food and medicines to pilgrims evacuated from affected areas, who are on transit to different places in the country. Sandeep Khandelwal, President, Delhi Hotel & Restaurant Association, said that “about 250 member hotels will provide rooms, food and medicines to pilgrims who arrive in Delhi, en route to their destinations in different parts of the country”.

Federation of Hotel & Restaurant Associations of India (FHRAI) has urged the government to announce a comprehensive financial package for the reconstruction of tourism infrastructure in Uttarakhand. “the recent natural calamity had “dealt a severe blow” to the tourism and hospitality industry, which comprises largely “small- and medium-sized" establishments”, mentioned Mr. Vijay Pande, Secretary, FHRAI.

“On account of these incalculable losses, the sector faces a perilous future, which also threatens the livelihood of lakhs of people. FHRAI makes an urgent appeal to the Union Government and financial institutions to formulate a comprehensive relief package for the state’s hospitality and tourism industry, in the form of loan waivers, tax exemptions and subsidies,” Pande added.

While on the other hand Travel and tourism associations have also asked their members to participate in helping and rescuing providing people stranded, as well as those who have lost their livelihood in the calamity.
