Gurbaxish Singh Kohli, Director of Pritam Hotels, has been elected as the President of the Hotel and Restaurant Association of Western India (HRAWI). Prior to being elected as the President, Kohli was Sr. Vice President of the Association.

Kohli said, "HRAWI has been the industry’s voice in championing its progress, in liasioning with the Governments and has been a pillar of support for its members. In the last couple of years, the HRAWI ceaselessly worked towards alleviating many hurdles that the industry faced across issues ranging from the highway liquor ban to the most recent plastic ban. Simultaneously, we also supported and led the way for FSSAI’s several training programmes in Food Safety trainings and certifications across the Western region. We also introduced a first of its kind independent classification system in India that follows the global practice of trade bodies for rating hotels."
