Hotel and Restaurant Association of Telangana represented by President Mr. Manish Dayya and Reginald Corbett, General Secretary along with other Executive Committee members of the association met Mr. Sandeep Kumar Sultania, Tourism and Culture Secretary, Government of Telangana, and discussed the concerns faced by the sector and submitted a representation demanding industry status for the hospitality industry. Considering the rapid growth of the tourism industry in Telangana, and the scope for scaling it up further, the committee urged the government to provide all the facilities on par with industries.
Speaking on the occasion, Manish Dayya, General Manager, Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre & Hyderabad International Convention Centre said “In light of the State’s rapidly expanding tourist industry the association has submitted a representation to the government demanding an ‘Industry Status’ to the hospitality sector. This sector is a major contributor to employment generation and GSDP, besides playing a pivotal role in promoting tourism in the state. ‘Industry status’ in the hospitality sector will go a long way in encouraging the operators to propel tourism in the state, as it will be easier to do business. We expect a positive response from the authorities on the submitted proposal and look forward to a speedy output on the same.”
