Out of the many loses invoked by the pandemic, the industry suffered yet another setback with the loss of its esteemed leaders, Rajindera Kumar and Anil Bhandari who succumbed to COVID-19 in the last 24 hours. 
Rajindera Kumar, was the Senior member of the Managing Committee and Former President of HRANI & FHRAI.

Kumar had been one of the longest serving senior members of the Managing Committee of the Hotel and Restaurant Association of Northern India (HRANI). Kumar made invaluable contributions to the advocacy efforts of HRANI & FHRAI, leaving a special imprint across India. The void left behind by him will be deeply felt by the hospitality and tourism fraternity.

Anil Bhandari, the former Chairman & Managing Director of India Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC), succumbed to COVID-19, in the national capital last night. He was appointed as the MD of Indian Tourism Development Corporation Limited (ITDC) from 1992 to 1997 and later joined ITC Limited as an advisor of Travel and Tourism in 1998.  Bhandari was also the MD of Hotel Corporation of India. 
He was on the executive committees of some of India’s premier trade and industry bodies such as FICCI, PHDCCI and Member Industry Council. He was also serving as the chairman of AB Smart Concepts.
The industry deeply mourns the loss and remembers them for their leadership and guidance over the years.
