“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.
